Now, New York Rappers Beef Via Photoshop

It's a bit off topic for us, but the ongoing beef between New York rappers Tru-Life and Dipset seems worth mentioning. This weekend, in retaliation for the cover of Tru Life's latest mix tape (above left), which depicts Dipset's Jim Jones wearing Borat's overly revealing yellow bikini, Dipset affiliates hacked Tru-Life's MySpace page and put up photos of Tru Life in the bikini (above right). And with that, ladies and gentleman, we have reached the obvious end point of the evolution of rap beef; Jim Jones, who once threatened to slap the kufi off Nas's head, is resorting to Photoshop geekery. At least no one's getting shot. —Amos Barshad
