What’s beef? Hip-hop surely knows. In a culture where braggadocio infiltrates the music, egos are bound to fly, and that’s when problems arise. It’s a natural response to have a little competition in an art form. However, when it comes to hip-hop, a face-off usually turns into a high-profile event.
