Do It For The ‘Tube: Top 10 Rap Fights Caught on Camera
1. 50 Cent & Trav Go At It Onstage
Summary: At this point in the game, everyone knows that 50 Cent loves to beef. Beef, in fact, is what made his entire career. And during a Core DJs mixshow in Atlanta late last year, 50 kept up with his fine tradition of beefing when he took it up with former associate/Hip Hop moupie (male+groupie=moupie) Trav after he made some disparaging remarks on Twitter about 50’s sometime girlfriend, Tatted Up Holly.
Winner: As much as we hate to admit it, Trav. First of all, male groupies-turned-wannabe rappers shouldn’t even be addressed, let alone beefed with — a rapper of 50’s status brings himself down to the lowest common denominator by even farting in Trav’s general direction. This beef only raised Trav’s profile — it didn’t do anything beneficial for 50 in terms of a career move. Second, Trav insulted Holly on Twitter, through a series of sub-Tweets, like a teenage girl getting her first period — he didn’t address Holly in person, or mention Holly directly. If Trav’s little Twitter fit didn’t faze Holly (and it didn’t), why should (or would) it faze Curtis? Third, they aren’t really “fighting” — no fists were thrown; not even a shove from either party — 50 is popping his finger, & Trav is popping his neck. It’s sort of what it would look like if your new wifey & your crazy hoodrat baby mama met in person…not a good look for a couple of street dudes. Finally, any time Meek Mill is the voice of reason in a fight, you know things don’t look good for you.
