Juvenile and Cash Money - After a very successful run with Cash Money, Juvenile left unceremoniously, voicing money issues he had with the label. He and his former labelmates put that aside in 2012, however, when Juve linked with Birdman and Lil Wayne for "Picture Perfect."(Photos from Left: Christopher Polk/Getty Images For BET, Brad Barket/PictureGroup, Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

Tony Yayo and Young Buck - Tony Yayo and Young Buck were once like family held together by G-Unit glue, until Young Buck's spending habits interfered with his professional and personal relationships with the camp. Although Yayo said in a 2011 interview "I really, really like Buck. I just don't understand why he was flipping like that," he and the G-Unit South rapper's friendship ended when Fif ejected Buck out of the crew in 2008. But their feud is all in the past, now. Yayo and Buck recently reunited for "Devil's Advocate" for Yayo's El Chapo 3 mixtape. (Photos from left: Denise Truscello/WireImage, Prince Williams/FilmMagic)

"Elevators (Me and You)" - "That record was straight off the chain. I remember having a conversation with Big Boi about this record, and he said they went to the radio station and had this record played and it ultimately ended up becoming their lead single. It was soulful but it was obscure of what a radio record would have been back then, but it was still so familyoriented and still so cool but it had a totally different kind of vibe than the beats that were coming out back then."  (Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

OutKast - The talented duo hasn't released a record together since 2006's Idlewild, and the void has been a chasm. That's why even though their "beef" has been really just a hiatus, their reunion at Coachella 2014 shut things down.(Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)

Fat Joe and Remy Ma - Remy Ma and Fat Joe, her former Terror Squad boss, had a falling out following the lackluster release of her debut album, There's Something About Remy: Based on a True Story (2006), but now, they're ready to reconcile. Said Ma in an interview while she was incarcerated, "When you put egos and pride aside and be the real people that you are, it works out… I'm going to make it my business that we talk more." Will we get new music out of that? That remains to be heard. (Photos from left: John Ricard/BET, Peter Kramer/Getty Images)

The Clipse - The Clipse have split as a rapping duo for several years now. Pusha T released a solo venture, My Name Is My Name, to much critical acclaim, and No Malice penned a memoir, Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked. But Pusha and the fans have missed the Virginia Beach tag team, so it seems 2014 is the perfect time for the two to same-page it again. And word is that's what's happening, with Kanye West and Pharrell rumored to be behind the boards of their next album, As God as My Witness.(Photo: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)

A Tribe Called Quest - Anytime you have a crew of creative artists there is bound to be some type of feuding; and when you have been in the biz since 1985 like A Tribe Called Quest sometimes internal beef is inevitable.  The group?s first split came in 1998 on the eve of their fifth album release, the same time when Q-Tip and Phife Dawg's relationship began to unravel. Phife argued that Tip disbanded Tribe, leaving him and Ali to fall to the wayside, while he pursued other ventures. But the iconic hip hop group has reunited on occasion since, including for the acclaimed Yeezus Tour in 2013, one of the group's "last-ever shows" in honor of the 20th anniversary their third album, Midnight Marauders.(Photo: Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images)

50 Cent and Fat Joe - 50 Cent built his rap career on beef so when he and Fat Joe were feuding fans weren’t surprised. The feud between the two New York rappers ignited over the course of Fif’s highly publicized feud with Ja Rule. The G-Unit boss got on Rule's "New York" track, taking shots at Joe and Jadakiss, who were both featured on the original. The diss song launched a decade-long beef, which came to an end in 2012 at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. The rappers shared the same stage in honor of the late Chris Lighty. Who knew just two years later they would collaborate together on the song “Free Again” for DJ Kay Slay’s upcoming project. (Photos from left: Rick Diamond/Getty Images, Chris McKay/Getty Images)

Four years later, after a few rounds of diss tracks and interview smack-talking, they reunited with Back in Business, but then went back to their respective solo careers in 1999. In 2006, they began rocking shows together again, and then released their seventh album, We Mean Business, in 2008. They've since continued to perofrm together -- here and there.

Later, a misunderstanding between Em and Royce escalated into a stalemate that didn't break until last year when Em signed Royce's rap quartet Slaughterhouse to Shady Records.

Diddy and Ma$e - Although the duo made beautiful music together -- accentuated by their signature shiny suits -- things took a turn when Ma$e found his religion. The rapper quit the rap game soon after the release of his 1999 album, Double Up to become a preacher. Five years later, he returned, and Diddy was waiting with open arms to help produce the Harlem rapper's G-rated comeback, Welcome Back.(Photo: By Frank Micelotta/Getty Images)

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre - After splitting with N.W.A because he was at odds with group manager Jerry Heller, Ice Cube sued the group for what he thought was his fair share of the group's profits. Remaining group members fired back at Cube on numerous songs on their next and final two albums 100 Miles and Runnin' (1990) and Efil4zaggin (1991). However, by 1994 Cube and Dre had mended their friendship, appearing on "Natural Born Killaz" together.(Photo: By Kevin Winter/ImageDirect/Getty Images)

Dipset - After Dipset founders Cam'ron and Jim Jones began to disagree with each other, the entire crew was stalled with remaining crew members Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey hopeful for a future collaborative project, but focusing on their own individual careers. In April 2010, Dipset heads Cam and Jones put their differences aside and released two tracks together along with Santana: "Under Construction" and "Salute." (Photo: Taylor Hill/Getty Images)

Nas and Mobb Deep - A simple phone call was all it took for Nas and Prodigy to squash their beef. Since the Mobb Deep rapper was released from prison in March 2011, the old friends have collaborated on "Dog S--t," their first song together in 10 years. At a recent press conference for Rock the Bells, the two also announced that they are planning to do a full album together.(Photos: By Adrian Sidney/PictureGroup; Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)

Young Jeezy and DJ Drama - During the mid-2000's Jeezy and DJ Drama popularized the Southern trap music sound with their mixtapes Tha Streetz Is Watchin (2004) and the classic Trap or Die (2005), but a rift formed, including an altercation at a screening for Notorious and another tense run-in at the 2008 Dirty Awards in Atlanta. The pair finally deaded their beef in December 2009 on air on Drama's Gangsta Grillz Radio show on Atlanta's 107.9, and officially reunited with new music on The Real Is Back.(Photos: By Adrian Sidney/PictureGroup; Brad Barket/PictureGroup)

B.G. and Cash Money - At one point it seemed as if everyone was against Cash Money ? Juvenile, Mannie Fresh and even B.G. were at odds with the label over issues relating to money. But by 2010, Birdman had apparently gotten the numbers right and B.G. decided to reunite with the label and crew that put him on the map. Word is even Fresh, who has been most voccal about needing his paper, is back in the fold.(Photo: Getty Images; Adrian Sidney/PictureGroup)

Juvenile and Cash Money - New Orleans rapper Juvenile had been hinting at a reunion for the last few years, assuring fans that Cash Money will clique happen. The promises were a far cry from the Juvenile who scoffed at "I Miss My Dawgs," Lil Wayne's 2004 ode to the Hot Boys, and went head-to-head with Wayne and Cash Money Records for years before the beef fizzled out.(Photo: Frank Micelotta/ImageDirect/Getty Images)

Jay Z and Nas - What initially started off as a slick exchange of words between Jay Z's right-hand man Memphis Bleek and Nas affiliate, Prodigy, grew into a full-blown beef. Jay Z spoke up first on Hot 97's Summer Jam in 2001, reciting the opening verse to "Takeover" on stage, a clear diss to Nas and Mobb Deep. Nas responded shortly thereafter with "Ether." Over the next four years comments were made both on- and off-record until the pair finally squashed the beef in 2005 when Jay brought out Nas as a surprise guest at his comeback concert, "I Declare War."(Photo: Scott Gries/Getty Images for Universal Music)

Paul Wall and Chamillionaire - Paul Wall and Chamillionaire made two collaborative albums, 2002's Get Ya Mind Correct and 2005's Controversy Sells, before using the arbitrary excuse of "creative differences" to mask a feud that dragged on for years. However, these childhood friends couldn't stay apart for long. By 2010, the former duo had squashed their beef, making an announcement on Twitter in February of 2010 that they'd reunite for a joint tour.(Photo: Fernando Leon/Elevation/PictureGroup)

The Fugees - It was short-lived but memorable when the talented trio got back together in 2004 to perform in Brooklyn for Dave Chappelle's Block Party concert. It was their first show since 1997. A world tour followed, as well as rumors of a new album, but that was deaded when a rift between Wyclef and Lauryn Hill sent any chances of a new Fugees LP up in smoke. Now all we can do is hope that with L-Boogie back in the studio, we'll get another reunion soon.(Photo: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
