Betrayal sucks. Nobody likes getting got, especially not a rapper, and especially not by his best friend who also happens to be a rapper. When betrayal between rappers happens all hell breaks loose. Both parties have the capacity and the platform to rip each other apart—and unlike many of the rest of these beefs, they have juice.
