Is Rap Beef Good For Hip-Hop?

Well it seems like the Drake and Pusha-T rap beef has finally come to an end, or at least, subsided for now. The rap world waited impatiently for Drizzy’s rumored “career ending” response to Pusha’s vicious diss track “The Story of Adidon”, but sadly that day may never come. Thanks to a Kanye West tweet and J. Prince pulling an Inception job on Drizzy, the feud ended before we could even witness game three of the Toronto v. Virginia rap finals showdown. In respect to both, they are trying to keep the peace, but is it for the best?

I don’t think so, and one rapper who seems to agree is A$AP Ferg. During an interview with Shade 45 show The Whoolywood Shuffle, Ferg revealed that he “love[s] that shit.”

“We need that shit because I’m getting a feeling that like when Nas said hip-hop was dead, he was onto something,” he says. “At first, we was like, ‘You wildin’,’ this that and the third, but he foreseen it. And I think that like with a lot of the stupid shit that’s coming out, the wack shit that’s coming out, like we’re losing the art of lyricism and just being able to be witty with words.”
