Bang 'Em Smurf & Domination vs. 50 Cent

Bang 'Em Smurf and 50 Cent were very close friends together when Bang Em' Smurf & Domination were signed to 50's G-Unit Records. However, the friendship would come to an end when Bang 'Em Smurf was arrested for possession of a firearm and was expecting 50 Cent to come bail him out, which 50 Cent didn't. Bang 'Em Smurf had to mortgage his own mothers house to pay for bail. While Bang 'Em Smurf was imprisoned, Domination started to record diss records against 50's disrespect. While 50 Cent and some of the G-Unit crew were performing at a concert in 50's hometown, Domination and some of his men attended the concert to make a message that 50 Cent would never escape them. 50 Cent knew that Domination and his men were there so while 50 was on stage, he walked to the left side to grab a water bottle, took a couple of sips and threw the water out on Domination and his men. It was then that Domination and his men grabbed chairs and threw them at 50 and his entourage on the stage, while the police also came on stage to try and stop the heated engagement.

Twista vs. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

During the mid-to-late 1990s, rappers from parts other than New York City and Los Angeles were emerging. Among them were Twista (a Chicago native) and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (their members originate from both Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio). They both became very popular for their quick, rapid-fire style of rapping delivery. The beef started with a dispute over who originated this style. Bone Thugs say that Twista did not come out with the rapid-fire style. Layzie Bone elaborated and said "yeah he came spittin it a hundred miles an hour but he wasn't adding the harmony like us". Twista attacked back with "Crook County" feat. Psychodrama, calling Bone "Hoes of the Harmony." He also threatened that they were going to see Eazy-E soon. However, Layzie Bone and Twista became good friends and they dropped "Mid- West Invasion," soon thereafter the beef ended. Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone still had beef with Twista, they put out subliminal messages dissing Twista in both Krayzie Bone's "Gemini" album and "Leatherface: The Legend" undeground album. It was until the "Spit Your Game" video shoot that Krayzie, Wish and Twista ended their Beef. Krayzie Bone was also interviewed

Chingy vs. Nelly

St. Louis' own Chingy was an emerging artist mainly from the help he received from Nelly, the biggest premiere rap artist to so far come out of the Gateway City. Nelly decided to take Chingy with him on tour, but Chingy felt that Nelly was trying to take all the fame and keep him under his wings, to Chingy's dissatisfaction. Because of lack of recognition, Chingy became disenchanted. Then Ludacris and his Disturbing tha Peace record label offered Chingy a record deal, and he then traded shots at Nelly. Nelly also felt disrespected by Chingy, stating to the press that Chingy never gave credit to Nelly because of the success he was having. Nelly also claims that he invented the word "Derrrty", Chingy says he's a liar and the people have been saying "Derrrty" since back in the day.

Lil Scrappy vs. Orlando Police Department

Lil Scrappy was performing at a concert in a high school gym in Orlando. During the concert, the crowd were really getting pumped and excited by the music, then the local police stepped in. They gave Scrappy a warning, because he took his shirt off (which made female fans even more aggressive). The reasoning for this was because the police were afraid of a potential riot. They stated that if Scrappy were to do something like this they would cancel the concert. Then, Scrappy did a stagedive, which made the police react and they entered the stage and stopped the music. An officer then bumped into Lil Scrappy's manager making him angry. The same officer then rushed over to Lil Scrappy and pushes him off stage.

Ludacris vs. T.I.

G-Unit artist Young Buck asked fellow Southern rappers T.I. and Ludacris to appear on his new record on the track "Stomp" but later T.I. was replaced by The Game on the original version. T.I. then recorded a disrespectful verse against Ludacris. Ludacris heard it and decided to fire back at T.I. The beef originally started when T.I. saw Disturbing Tha Peace rapper I-20's video. In the video, a guy was wearing a shirt with the words "Trap House." The guy was getting beat up and stomped in the video. T.I. thought it said "Trap Muzik." Ludacris and T.I. sat down and talked about it and are now on good terms.

Apparently the beef from the Grammy's came from when T.I. made a disrespectful comment on his single "You Know What It Is", about Ludacris winning his grammy for rap album of the year ("Release Therapy") which he and T.I. were both nominees ("King"). The comment made was T.I. saying he felt that Ludacris didn't deserve the award and that T.I. actually had the rap album of the year.

Lil Flip vs. T.I.

They were both doing a photoshoot for The Source. Producer Nick Fury asked T.I. to do a verse on Lil Flip's "Game Over" remix, so T.I. discussed this with Lil Flip and his record label, and decided to do it. However, Lil Flip then tells him that it is already done and T.I. couldn't be on it. After that, T.I. becomes arrested and went to jail for a parole violation. The feud escalated, including when T.I. visited Lil Flip's Houston neighborhood, (which led to an altercation between each rapper's entourages) until it eventually died out. They both made amends shortly after The Game and 50 Cent did so in similar fashion (although Lil Flip's and T.I.'s beef has stayed settled).

50 Cent vs. The Game

For further information on this beef, see G-Unit vs. The Game.

When Beef III finished production, the beef between 50 Cent and The Game was thought to be over (or everted from higher levels). Beef III ended with the truce the two rappers had held in New York City, where they each donated over $200,000 dollars to charity. This documentary ended with the feeling that for now it looked like an East vs. West rivalry was avoided. There was somewhat of a cliffhanger when in the end the DVD stated that at least for now a coast vs. coast beef was gone. Since Beef III was released, the rivalry had actually intensified. In an extended interview found in the extras portion of this DVD, The Game further explained his dissatisfaction with 50 Cent and G-Unit, including footage of a concert where Game performed at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey (just eight miles across the Hudson River from New York City), in which he threw his G-Unit chain into the back row of the crowd.

The Game vs. Yukmouth

Yukmouth first met The Game at a club, at the time Yukmouth was engaged in a feud with 50 Cent and G-Unit. The Game released a diss track aimed at the rapper over the "I Got 5 on It" beat, a song which Yukmouth recorded when he was a part of Luniz. Yukmouth responded with a track that mocked The Game's appearance on Change of Heart.
