In-State Rivalry: The Georgia Edition

You know the expression: "crabs in a barrel." If there's any place where the adage applies, it's Georgia. The "all-in-it together now" mindset of the state's nascent mid-'90s scene, helmed by Dungeon Family, Jermaine Dupri and others, is long gone; with Atlanta now one of rap's undisputed meccas, the stakes — and rewards — are way higher and the state's last decade has been rife with hometown beef. In the latest skirmish, rivals Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane have reignited their long-simmering beef. Gucci gave an interview earlier this week saying that he has "no respect" for Jeezy, who responded by calling Gooch "retarded." Gucci then released a diss track and video called "Truth" and claimed on Twitter that he "can and will beat Jeezy's a--." He even involved Jeezy's ally T.I. in the fray, writing, "If Tip wanna get into it he can." If Georgia hip hop's history is any indication, things could get interesting. Click on to check out these other rap beefs that prove things ain't always peachy in Georgia. —Alex Gale
