How Far Is This Gonna Go?

We all have a laugh at various rap rivalries, we’ve all got our opinions and we all wanna know the latest gossip. When it comes to battles between NAS and Jay-Z we all know it’s a bit sad, cause they were once tight, but other than that it’s alright. When it comes to Dre. vs. Jermaine we know it’s nothing serious, and similarly when it comes to other battles like; DMX vs. Kurupt, Benzino vs. Eminem, and Ja Rule vs. DMX etc. It’s all harmless rappin.

But now one rap battle is starting to spill out of the studio and onto the streets, it’s starting to get serious and people’s lives are now in danger. Is history going to repeat itself with this rap war?
