Kanye West / Amber Rose / Wiz Khalifa - All it takes is a smooth misunderstanding to set Kanye West off. Twitter, oh Twitter, you never fail to deliver. “Hit this KK and become yourself,” was the Wiz Khalifa tweet that set Mr. West over the edge. Thinking it was about Kim Kardashian, Kanye responded with a now deleted, “Like, oh that’s Ye and I can put his wife’s initials on my Twitter.” Leading to chronological tweets with No. 4 being, “4th you let a stripper trap you.” It wasn’t long before Muva Amber Rose clapped back with, “Awww @kanyewest are you mad I’m not around to play in you’re [sic] a**hole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyA**B****.” See where assumptions get you?While Kanye keeps tweeting and deleting, check out a few more occasions when current loves and exes were dragged into hip hop beefs and tensions. —Michael Harris and Naima Moore-Turner(Photos from left: GVK...

Drake / Nicki Minaj / Meek Mill - “I never f***ed Wayne, I never f***ed Drake,” but Nicki Minaj got dragged into Meek Mill and Drake’s beef anyway. It all started when the Philadelphia rapper, Meek Mill, called out Drake for failing to write his own lyrics and not promoting his then-released album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Then Drake decided it was time to drag him through the 6. “You love her then you gotta give the world to her/ Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” This bar probably got Drake nominated for a Grammy, but that’s neither here nor there. It still happened.(Photos from Left: Jason Merritt/Getty Images, Ethan Miller/Getty Images, Tim P. Whitby/Getty Images)

Joe Budden / Nicki Minaj / Meek Mill - Joe Budden took to his podcast I'll Name This Podcast Later this past Summer and expressed how he felt seeing Meek gush all over Nicki at the BET Awards. He explained, "Part of my problem with that is Meek's music is too hard. Meek's music is too hard for me to look at him with this f*****g sappy f**k s**t.... But I do appreciate them for keeping the hope of love alive."Of course hip hop's Barbie and Ken weren't going to let that slide, and Meek fired back with a few Tweets like, "Rap money slowing up... joking but it ain't dat boy level to b commenting on they way I handle my lady!" Knowing Budden was expressing his thoughts and not really hating on the two, Nicki also checked the Mood Muzik rapper. Welp.(Photos from Left: Craig Barritt/Getty Images for Electus Digital/WatchLOUD, Mark Davis/BET/G...

Drake / Blac Chyna / Tyga - After Tyga let it be known in VIBE that his relationship with Drake was forced because of their label ties, Drake took to social media to send a few subliminal shots. One of those sneak disses included liking IG photos of Tyga’s estranged baby momma, Black Chyna. Getting back at her former boo, Blac Chyna also went to Instagram and liked a few of Champagne Papi’s flicks. When fans let Tyga know of his ex’s actions, he responded with, “That ain’t my h*e.” (Photos from left: Johnny Nunez/WireImage, John Ricard / BET, Craig Barritt/Getty Images)

Nas / Carmen Bryan / Jay Z - Jay Z threatened Nas on “Takeover" when he spit, “Because you-know-who did you-know-what with you-know-who/But let's keep that between me and you (for now).”Hov was alluding to the fact that he slept with Nas’s daughter’s mother, Carmen Bryan. Not living in fear, Nas put the fact out there and Bryan has also spoken about dating the two New York titans.Hov even got more vicious when he detailed the encounters on his diss track, “Supa Ugly," and made reference that Allen Iverson had an intimate session with Bryan as well. Many felt Jay took it too far when he rhymed, “Me and the boy A.I. got more in common than just balling and rhyming/Get it? More in Carmen/I came in your Bentley backseat, skeeted in your Jeep/Left condoms on your baby seat.”(Photos from left: Andy Lyons/Getty Images,Gallery Books Publishing, Isaac Brekken/Getty Images)

LL took a shot at Ice-T’s longtime girlfriend and the mother of his son, Darlene Ortiz, who appeared on his Power album cover. “While I freak on your album cover jocks/You're gonna hear a real ill paragraph soon/I took the cover right home to the bathroom/In the immortal words of L.L., 'hard as hell'/Your broad wears it well/She's the reason that your record sold a few copies.”(Photos from left: Sire/Warner Bros.
