Honestly the rap beef in general is less exciting than the ACTUAL fan drama and discourse.

Without the communities reacting, commenting, hypothesizing, etc this whole thing would just be a brutal exchange of words between artists.

The real winners: the creators that took advantage of the cultural phenomena happening and being able to use this drama as quality content (fantano, RDCWorld, Akademiks, Moist, etc)
