It was Lauryn Hill who once said that “Seasons change, mad things rearrange.” Not even two years later, The Fugees would disband and there would be no hope for reconciliation outside of that scary song “Take It Easy.” If that’s not proof that friendships end, then what is?
In Hip-Hop, friendship is a temperamental word that often changes its meaning depending upon the situation. Rappers have “friends” aka those whom they salute at the club (before cracking bottles over their heads), real friends as in the ones they grew up with, and frenemies.

We’ve compiled a gallery with flicks of some of the happier days in rappers’ friendships. While the blowouts that broke them up have since been healed for some, fans may never recover from the break-ups of others.
