This week in Friday Feuds a multi-round rap rivalry reaches a tipping point, and a soulful percussionist gets to the root of a controversial issue. Plus, a rap legend has a run-in with the law while a cannabis loving rapper lets down a group of hopeful stoners, and much more...

Dr. Dre vs. Police

Road rage...What normal human being hasn't experienced a tinge of vehicular-related frustration at some point? This week what should have been a minor disagreement between two level-headed adults turned into a full-on incident complete with appearances from khaki-clad Malibu Police Department officers...

Things reportedly went awry when a motorist on the Pacific Coast Highway made a sudden stop right in front of Dr. Dre's house. Dre, who was attempting to leave his driveway, reportedly requested that the motorist move away from his property. The ask seemingly triggered a stream of foul language from the driver, which Dre attempted to capture via cellphone. According to sources, the driver, who seemed to mistake the phone for a gun, allegedly said, "Here we go again, another black guy with a gun." The motorist then proceeded to call 911 to report that Dre had pulled a gun on him...

Police arrived on the scene and promptly placed Dre in handcuffs, however they soon found there was no evidence of a weapon anywhere on the property. Soon after, the Los Angeles County D.A. rejected the case, stating, "A misdemeanor charge of exhibiting a concealable firearm in public was declined due to a lack of sufficient evidence..."

Since the incident Dre's team has also released a statement detailing the celeb's side of the story. Former N.W.A. manager, Jerry Heller, who isn't the biggest fan of Dre's personality also stepped in, defending the rapper and insinuating the detainment was racially charged...

Joe Budden vs. Drake Fans

Drake may be one of the most memed rappers in the game, but this week Joe Budden accidentally challenged his title when he chased down a duo of OVO trolls. Budden, who was captured mid-chase, bears the expression of a drunken uncle whose belt is ever-ready to connect with the derriere of an ill-behaved child...

This time, the trouble makers in question were actually a group of self-coined "OVO Goons" (we're guessing they watched the 'fuck Supreme' guy in action one too many times). Either way, the offenders pulled up to Budden's New Jersey home, yelling a rather standard and uninspired list of insults. However they got the surprise of a lifetime when they were out-gooned by Budden who promptly gave chase, with rocks in hand...

The incident concluded with the "goons" apologizing to Budden, who probably still called their mothers to tell on them. For his part, the rapper seems to be enjoying all of the meme fame...

Drake vs. Joe Budden

Following the Joe Budden chase incident, everyone's favorite shady, beige Canadian got in on the action in the most subtle way possible. No doubt having seen the social media implosion surrounding Budden's antics, Drizzy promptly followed the one-time goons on Instagram...

Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift

Another week, another bout of Taylor Swift shade from Kanye West. This time around West joined Drake for the Chicago leg of his "Summer Sixteen" tour, and used his time on stage to take yet more shots at Swift...

Oh, the continued clap back.

Questlove vs. Bill O'Reilly

Monday saw the kick-off of the Democratic National Convention where FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, delivered a roughly 15-minute speech in support of Hillary Clinton. Despite covering many topics, Obama's remarks about the building of the White House emerged as the preeminent point of discussion...

"I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States. So, don't let anyone ever tell you that this country isn't great, that somehow we need to make it great again, because this right now is the greatest country on Earth."

Michelle Obama

The next day Fox News host Bill O'Reilly was just one of the many members of media who decided to weigh in on the first lady's comments. During the "Tip of the Day" segment of his eponymously named show, "The O'Reilly Factor," he made it a point to take issue with Obama's rhetoric. According to O'Reilly, whose grasp on the definition of "slavery" seems tenuous at best, slaves who built the White House had it pretty good because they were, "well fed and provided with decent lodgings from the government..."

As expected, a large swathe of people were extremely offended, and furthermore, not having it. Hip-hop luminary and Roots alum, Questlove, was among the many who responded to O'Reilly's tone deaf assertion...

Lil Wayne vs. High Times

You'd think all would be peaceful at a gathering of potheads, but alas, Lil Wayne proved that theory wrong this week. The New Orleans-born rapper was scheduled to appear at High Times Magazine's " Medical Cannabis Concentrates Cup" competition. And indeed, he did show up and even performed four songs, but after that things got weird...

For reasons still unclear, Tunechi became offended and began ranting his dissatisfaction to a very stoned audience. The meltdown ended with Wayne walking off stage after requesting he never be invited to such a gathering again...

Shortly after, High Times took to Instagram to release a statement that indicates their team is just as confused as everyone else...

I guess we'll just have to wait on Wayne's explanation.
