Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #99
The Minstrel, Q-boy, & Muffina Winters On Beef
Beef really has lead to some great music. That’s pretty much undeniable. Battling and dissing is just part of rap. Rap is more like a sport than other forms of music, and sometimes it’s a blood sport. People want to be good singers or great singers, and if someone wants to be the best singer it isn’t by actually proving you’re better by humiliating the competition. Singers might not like each other and they might go at each other in a VERY subliminal way, but it’s nothing like a rap battle.
But you know what’s weird? John Lennon made a diss track. A guy all about peace and love made diss track, and he goes in on Paul McCartney.
Tomorrow is our 100th Conversation special! I’ll just say it’s going to be crazy and leave it at that… Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
