Rap beef and hip-hop go hand-in-hand. However, the rivalries that were born in 2024 are more intense than feuds from the past. Musical feuds have always captivated audiences, but they sometimes go too far.

In recent years, it seems as if every rapper wants smoke. Meek Mill and Drake got into a messy feud in 2015 that started after the Philly native accused the former Degrassi star of using ghostwriters.

Drake responded with "Back to Back," and the song became an instant classic. However, as time passed, both artists gradually moved on from the beef, with Drake even bringing Meek Mill out as a surprise guest during his 2018 tour.

Now, Drake is in another feud and the beef has sent the hip-hop industry into a frenzy. But Drake isn’t the only rapper duking it out in 2024. Here is a ranking of every rap beef this year.

5. Hurricane Chris is beefing with Kevin Gates, we think.

In April, Hurricane Chris released a freestyle targeting rapper Kevin Gates. Chris has not explicitly revealed his issue with Kevin, but netizens believe it stems from a mention on Kevin’s track “Useless.” Chris has since released his freestyle, slamming Kevin for dishonoring their relationship – which we are still unsure about.

4. Gucci Mane took shots at Diddy.

The rap community has been relatively quiet about the allegations surrounding Diddy. However, Gucci Mane took a direct shot at the former music mogul on his song "TakeDat." In his track, Gucci frequently repeats the phrase "No Diddy," a refrain that has gained traction in the aftermath of Cassie's lawsuit over recent months.

"The CEO in the video but no Diddy / ‘Cause I ain’t dancin’ like a h-, no Diddy / Can’t go out like Pac, no kizzy," Gucci raps.

3. JT and Glorilla are repping for the women.

The ladies of hip-hop are not letting the fellas have all the fun. JT of the City Girls and rapper Glorilla have been at odds since the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Following last year’s annual ceremony, rumors suggested that Glorilla slapped JT for not acknowledging her during the show.

Months later, Glorilla released her Ehhthang Ehhthang mixtape – which includes a line about her feud with JT.

“Me and JT ain’t the best of friends but we ain’t beefin’/ Know bi**hes always havin’ [animosity] that they keep a secret,” Glorilla raps.

Unfortunately, JT was unwilling to accept the olive branch. She instead took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to call Glorilla “corny,” (per Complex).

2. The Quavo versus Chris Brown beef came out of nowhere.

Quavo and Chris Brown have been feuding for years – reportedly due to their connection with Karrueche Tran – but things got worse after Chris released a track called “Weakest Link.”

“You f--ked my ex-h-e, that's cool / I don't give no f--k, lil n---a,” Chris raps. 'Cause I f--ked yo' ex when you were still with her, b---h, I'm up.”

Quavo fired back, dropping a track called “Over H-es and B---hes,” on April 22. In the song, Quavo accuses Chris of being an abuser – pointing to incidents with Rihanna and Karrueche.

1. Drake and J. Cole versus Kendrick Lamar

In November 2023, Drake and J. Cole dropped a track called “First Person Shooter.” In the song, Cole raps about being in hip-hop’s “Big 3” alongside Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

While the mention seemed well-intended, Kendrick took issue with it. Months later, the Los Angeles rapper released his response – igniting the beef.

Kendrick’s verse was featured on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That,” and his bars were explosive. “Your best work is a light pack / N---a, Prince outlived Mike Jack,” Kendrick raps.

By this point, the feud was on fire. Cole released a response to Kendrick – although he later apologized for his involvement in the beef. However, Drake stood his ground.

The Toronto rapper released another diss track called “Push Ups," and the feud turned nasty. Before Kendrick could respond, Drake doubled down in another track called "Taylor Made Freestyle." And just when it looked like Kendrick was ignoring the jabs from Drake, the Pulitzer Prize winner dropped a fiery diss track.

Kendrick released "Euphoria" and "6:16 in LA," which included shocking allegations about Drake and his team. Kendrick claimed that members of Drake's entourage leaked information that was later used in the diss track.

Days later, Drake fired back. In a song called "Family Matters," Drake suggested that Kendrick's child was fathered by someone else. Of course, Kendrick did not go down without a fight. He went on to drop "Meet The Grahams" and "Not Like Us," with the latter becoming a No. 1 hit.
