UPDATE: The Game responded to G Count's track on Twitter; his original line was transcribed on RapGenius as "Rock my Pelle P like L.E.P., them Bogus Boys? They fuck with me." Apparently, Game would consider this a mis-transcription:
@A_WayOfficial LED is my nigga Low End Derrick from Chicago who live in LA..... L.E.P. Is the Bogus Boys...— Handsome Ass Nigga (@thegame) May 7, 2014
G Count, the rapper known for his long membership as a part of the LEP Bogus Boys, launched a response this afternoon to Tyga and Game's "ChiRaq to LA" diss of Lil Durk and 40 Glocc. For a complete background on the beef leading up to Lil Durk and Tyga difference of opinion, check this Brief History of Tyga and Lil Durk's Beef. (This should go without saying, but let's keep it on Serato wax.)
In the song, G Count derides The Game's shout-out to the "L.E.D. Bogus Boys" [sic]. "You don't know shit about Chiraq/Dickriding me to get a pass, you don't know the G-Count like that." And later on: "As far as Chicago riding with you, point 'em out, them who?/Show me 'xactly who you talking about, I'll green light it on them too."
G Count's been a street rap vet for some time. Although they only received national notice more recently, L.E.P. have been gangster rap standard bearers in Chicago for years:
Since "ChiRaq to LA" was released, a number of Chicago street rap elder statesmen spoke up on Twitter; G Count was the first to back up Lil Durk musically. Yesterday, Legendary Traxster—producer of Do Or Die's "Po Pimp" and Twista's "Adrenaline Rush"—drew a parallel with Twista's beef with Treach of Naughty By Nature in the 1990s, and wondered if the same level of local solidarity would be there for Durk today.
Back when Naughty by Nature dissed Twista, I didn't know that nigga. He didn't fuck with me. But I took it personal... Why you say.— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
First I felt like don't mention "Chicago"! I felt like "Tongue Twist to ass back to Chicago" was like saying Chicago was lame or something.— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
Second If felt like Twista from "Chicago" we can beef with him but we gone always ride with our own against any outsider!— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
Third I felt like we had worked to hard to start being respected in this rap game as a city. I wasn't letting no nigga diminish that!!!— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
We made it a point to let the whole world know that Chicago was riding with our own over anybody!!!— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
Now we gone see if these so-called "New Chi" artist sell each other out for a shout out— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
Now we gone see if all this city pride is real! I hit my lil homie and told him I'm with him 100%. What ever he needs I got him.— Legendary Traxster (@Traxster) May 6, 2014
Q-Ball of Crucial Conflict also discussed inter-city beef in Chicago rap history in a series of Tweets.
We were just trying to see what the fuss was about and also see why they was dissing chicago like that.— Crucial Conflict™ (@QBALLcrucon) May 6, 2014
Meanwhile, Chief Keef also posted an image of Tyga's "ChiRaq to LA" on his Instagram, which Lil Durk responded to on Twitter:
