Battle of the Sexes: Male vs. Female Rap Beefs

Kim and Weezy's aren't the only inter-gender 'bows thrown.

Battle of the Sexes: Male vs. Female Rap Beefs - Nicki Minaj's YMCMB boss, Lil Wayne, took a paint-ball shot at Lil Kim on his new mixtape, Dedication 5, spitting, "Changed the face of my Rolex/ Shout out to Lil' Kim." When the Queen Bee heard of it, she went right after his manhood via Twitter, "Bwahaha!!! That was real cute homegirl @Lil'Tutu. oops I mean @liltunechi !!! #HARDCOREMIXTAPE coming your way soon!!!" These are precious hits as far as hip hop goes, but we doubt they would've even splattered as colorfully had they not come from a man and a woman, respectively.

Roxanne Shant? vs. UTFO - The first major rap beef between the sexes was the infamous "Roxanne War" of the mid-'80s.

UTFO responded with "The Real Roxanne" and then several other groups got in on the act, releasing their own Roxanne-themed tracks.(Photos from left: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images, Courtesy RCA Records)

Lil Kim vs. Shyne - When Shyne debuted in the late '90s, he faced a lot of flack over his vocal similarities to the one and only B.I.G. ? particularly from Lil Kim.

LL Cool J vs. LeShaun - LL and the sultry-voiced LeShaun had a huge hit in 1996 with "Doin' It," (a remake of her own song, "Wild Thang"), but controversy stirred up when audiences realized she wasn't in the video and instead a bevy of video beauties were lip-syncing her contributions. LL explained that it was because LeShaun was pregnant at the time. Not everyone believed him. But maybe we should have. The pair have since collaborated several more times.(Photos from left:  Jeff Katz Photography/CBS Studios International, Courtesy Last FM)

Kreayshawn vs. Rick Ross - In the "WTF" category, we have this tiff between Rick Ross and Kreayshawn. The "Gucci Gucci" rapper called the Bawse "fake" in a freestyle and dissed his size and sexual prowess. The result was Ross threatening that he'd pay "50k to mess up your whole week." There was even some sort of confrontation backstage at the VMAs. The two later squashed it, with DJ Khaled reportedly playing peacemaker. He da best.(Photos from left: Anthony Harvey/Picturegroup, Mark Davis/PictureGroup)
