Beef

Beef ★★

A doc I’ve wanted to watch since middle school when I learned about it. The first half is the best part as it deals with more of not only the history of rap beefs but also the history of the genre. When it turns into a warning against violence I understand but also it would be nice if the film addressed the social-economics of hip hop as an art form and really the last great American music genre.


Also it kind of brushes off a lot of interesting history tidbits like how Jay-Z had to apologize to Nas for the baby seat line and what meant for rap beefs instead just moving on to something else. This is Rap Beef Sparknotes Edition.
