Ghetto Soap Operas: Episode 4
The ongoing saga between Bay Area rapper Mistah FAB and Detroit's Royce Da 5'9 is arguably the most genuine beef in hip-hop right now. Both men don't have enough of a following to beef-for-publicity, the point of contention stems from a real rap battle where they both shared the stage, and they both clearly sound like they've done their research on each other. Oh, and the hate from one another seems to grow with each diss.
For those heads who genuinely do care (we see you Oakland and Detroit rap stans!) about the outcome, KING-MAG.com is breaking down the battle up to it's latest point. It's hardly over between these two, but, like Larry Lederman, we're going to give you the recap as the battle goes on between Fab and Royce.
