We might be done with the past, but the past is never done with us. Thanks to some high-tech snooping, Twitter user @SargeWP was able to unearth tweets from 2009 and 2010 by a raft of famous rappers—folks like Macklemore, Meek Mill, Trinidad James, and Action Bronson—and the site BallerAlert took it and ran with it. Before they were famous, it turns out, rappers had a lot to say about other rappers. Macklemore questioned if J. Cole could ever find an audience, Meek Mill sided with 50 Cent instead of future boss Rick Ross during the height of their beef, and nearly everybody clowned Drake and Wale. Mostly Junk Food has dubbed the scandal "Hip-Hop Wiki Leaks." Evidence of 50's observation: "These industry niggas ain't friends/They know how to pretend." 

But you gotta feel bad for them. I mean, we all say stuff that we come to regret. Everyone has skeletons in their Internet closet, and as we learn again, and again, and again, and again, once you post something on the Internet, it's there forever. It's like Pharrell said all those years ago: Nothing ever really dies. Unfortunately for celebrities, there will always be someone be someone trying to dig up old dirt. It's the price of fame. Hey, a thug changes and love changes and your old tweets get read by millions of strangers. Click ahead to see what we mean...
