The year 2015 might go down as the year of rap beefs. After fans witnessed Drake and Meek Mill’s rap battle, a new feud has emerged among two hip-hop crews. Hopsin’s Funk Volume and Kxng Crooked’s Horseshoe Gang are engaged in a very heated lyrical battle.
It all started three days ago when Funk Volume members Hopsin, Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton issued a challenge to battle any rap crew for $500,000. Kxng Crooked and his lyrical brothers the Horseshoe Gang entered the ring and threw the first volley by stating they would demolish anybody who steps to them.
This prompted Hopsin to go on his Instagram page and write, “Horseshit gang! You ready for your funeral? Crooked I, get your ‘I miss my dawgs’ speech ready. You should have dissed us instead. You lead your soldiers to failure. Get ready.”
Then FV dropped “Free Meal” (listen above), a thundering diss song in which Hopsin calls Crooked an over-the-hill rapper who pretends he’s gangsta.
Not to be outdone, Horseshoe Gang released not one but two diss songs in one day. The California group’s “Half a Meal” and “Same Day” are two blistering response tracks in which HSG spit acidic raps at all of the members of Funk Volume.
“Same Day” is especially hardcore with its whining synthesizers and a concrete-breaking beat. On the song, HSG calls the Funk Volume members “rap coons.”
We don’t know where this diss-a-thon is headed, but this is a legit rap battle. Props to both Funk Volume and Horseshoe Gang for repping their crews with just bars. No Twitter fingers here, just straight lyrics.
