Can’t we all get along?
Rodney King’s 90s plea for peace seems to have been ignored. 2009 kicked off with a bang as Aftermath artist Bishop Lamont allegedly had an altercation with X.O. of Black Wall Street.
According to reports, the pair knuckled up Friday during a Los Angeles Jim Jones show.
While no concrete information is available, Lamont appears to have gotten the better of the exchange, as one anonymous source told BallerStatus that X.O. “looked worse than De La Hoya” after the boxer’s fight with Manny Pacquiao.
The sparring session seems to be another chapter in the ongoing feud between Lamont and The Game. Hours before the confrontation, Lamont appeared on “The West Coast Grind” and spoke on the beef.
“It’s just an issue of disrespect,” he said. “It ain’t no beef. I don’t have time to beef with a nigga that looks like my man. That’s Face’s brother, I can’t hate that nigga. I have love for him. It’s an issue of respect. I know his mother. We spent Mother’s Day together. His mother, my mother, Dre’s mother…it’s already fucked up enough when I have to respond because that disrespects his mother, that’s as far as I’m going to take it.
“For Game, I got love, it’s just a respect issue.”
Lamont also clarified his issues with living legends Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. Previous reports addressed tension between the new school and old school rappers. For the Aftermath artist, it’s not an issue of beef, but more so an issue of Snoop and Cube not keeping other west coast vets from collaborating with the new rappers.
“It’s not fuck Snoop and Cube, but at the end of the day, if you’re not going to fuck with us, it’s never fuckin mind,” Lamont clarified. “If you disregard us, we’ll disregard you.”
