The not-so Meek Mill put out a snippet from a song entitled "Gave Em Hope" which unfortunately for him threw jabs at 50 cent. As the days went on 50 Cent took to instagram to "respond" to shit head's...I mean Meek Mill's diss. While the petty argument resulted in some humorous memes the situation didn't seem to get any better and became less about rap as the days went on. Meek Mill's shifted his focus eventually when a viral tweet asking the rappers to stop going at each other and help out with the water crisis in Flint caught his attention.
To some extent that was a noble move on Meek's behalf and in an ideal world 50 cent would've succumbed to shelving the pointless argument. BUTTTTT THAT"S NOT THE CASE. As the man who relentlessly roasted Ja Rule and Rick Ross, 50 continued to throw shade over instagram at Meek.
As we all have become somewhat weary over beef in Hip Hop considering how volatile it can and has become - the beef between these two rappers could easily progress in a fashion that no one wants it to. The Game took to instagram to comment and remind folks of this phenomenon in music and what beef was before it became a petty argument. As he is no stranger to the tour de force that is 50 Cent "HipHop Beef" he is one of the few (if not the only) rappers to say a peep about the situation so far.
As trivial as it may come across to some in today's society his words are something to take heed of. Hip Hop heads and people of older generations have seen the difference in music and how it is handled in the internet age. With the loss of Biggie & Tupac it is something that always sits in the back of ones mind when situations like 50 & Meek happen. On another note that only beckons more applause for Drake's decision to handle Meek's jabs last year by taking it off of social media and putting it into music. (sorry Meek) Nonetheless The Game pretty much implodes the entire argument and sums it up completely.
