In this week’s edition of Friday Feuds there’s model misbehavior, eggplant outlines, and a prophet of Brooklyn rap goes toe-to-toe with Slim Jesus.

Lil Wayne vs. Trukfit Model

Lil Wayne has had a tough few months in the courts. Between his ongoing legal dispute with one-time mentor Birdman and a few other legal woes, Weezy’s gravy train seems to be headed toward disaster.

Most recently a model named Shanise Taylor is piling on to the list of people who have a bone to pick with Tunechi.

While quite a few fans found themselves on the receiving end of the eggplant outline they’d been dreaming of, Instagram was far less enthused. The platform is currently seeking to force the rapper to take down the pictures, claiming they are explicit in nature.

Since his Instagram is still working at the moment, The Game took to social media to address the claims.

KRS-One vs. LL Cool J

Last week in Pittsburgh, KRS-One unloaded some shade towards a fan that had engaged in a rap battle. The multi-layered read unintentionally took aim at more than the bucket-hat wearing fan whose sartorial choices seemed to be inspired by everyone’s favorite ladies’ man, LL Cool J.

Trying to be on LL’s dick and LL’s whack,” the emcee rhymed in reference to the fan’s headwear. Any potential beef between two old-school idols ended up being squashed quite quickly as KRS-One issued an apology in the form of a freestyle the following week…
