David Banner Talks 'Beef'
In hip-hop that is...
Southern rapper David Banner has talked about the ever popular ‘beefs’ within the hip-hop community. In a recent interview, Banner revealed a conversation that he had with T.I. about conflict in the scene being inevitable.
He told SOHH.com: "I'm happy for their situation. I don't think rap should be too much of anything, I don't think we should all come together and sing 'Kom-Bi-Ya' and I don't think that we should be beefing. I think we're grown men but as grown men, you can have difficulties with each other but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to have beef on the record. I don't think that's necessary.
“But at the same token, everybody's not gonna get along with each other. That was something that I actually learned from Tip. Tip told me, 'You're not gonna get along with everybody in real life, so you're not gonna get along with everybody in rap.' And that's fine. We men, we agree to disagree, but I don't think we should do it like high school and put it all in the music."
Why can’t we all just be friends?
