Jay not responding to game and beans lyrically is definitely cowardly, cos they cud give him competition
it isn't if the artist sending for you is just doing so in an attempt 2 make a name 4 himself

i swear man, these rappers of today have confused the generation who take in their music .. these niggas will say..
"i got money"
"i wont let him/her make a name off me"
"i dont wanna give him/her publicity so i wont say no names"
nah fuck that! i remember when if a nigga came atchu, big or small.. famous or not.. you slaughtered that nigga for bein such a fool for thinkin he could even compete..
when i see niggas like Jay-Z .. i think of weakness ..
now i aint talkin about hood shit, like havin real hood beefs.. cause that could lead to niggas gettin killed..
but fuck in music its too many softies and the shit has circulated down to the people..
these rappers training men to be boys and women to be bitches..

HipHop was built off of everyone battling for the top and those on top slaughter those that challenged them or losing that spot, this is just another problem with todays hiphop fan and artist they forgot they origins and what thisshit was built off of. This is just another example of how rappers are Selling out to the pop fans who do not understand or appreciate the aggressive nature of urban HipHop culture, HipHop is about respect and too many Kats now adays lack it for themselves and others. How many more fundamentals can be tossed before the shit is no longer considered HipHop???

100% Co-sign. Not responding is not only cowardly but it reeks of selling out. It's easy to throw subliminals but to truly go at someone takes mad heart and confidence. No one is above a battle. A challenge is a challenge no matter what level you're in the game.1996 to 2010 is only 14 years. give or take the "retirements". Regardless of what you accomplished or how your fans see you, Your name is still your name and no amount of money, fame or who you're fucking can't stop someone from stepping to you. Fans are gonna defend, that's what we do but at the end of the day whether you felt he lost or not, he should protect his own legacy. LL Cool J, KRS, Ice Cube all defended their legacy whether you agreed or not. You can't take that away from them.

real beef = yes
fake beefs = no
99% of these beefs are faker than a 2 dollar bill, they usually have alterior motives (drum up publicity and gain attention). Most of these beefs aren't on some Pac and Biggie shit, more like 50 and Kanye shit. Plus if motherfuckers had to respond to everyone who came at them they would be battling no name rappers and people seeking fame. Rap is a joke nowadays.

Yes, not responding to a nigga throwing shots at you is very bitch made, cowardly, and anti hip hop. Niggas is really telling on themselves when they say cats shouldn't respond. That makes me think if a nigga talk about you, your mama, step on your shoes and then spit in your face, u gonna say 'i ain't finna pay this nigga no attention. He ain't finna make a name off fighting me' and just act like a nigga didn't just talk about you, your mama, step on your shoes and spit in your face. Now, we all know it's not going to that extent in rap (and no, 2pac did not die over no ec vs wc bullshit, that was gang banging), so is that why niggas feel like it's ok to not respond? Ol sticcs and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt ass niggas!!!! Like curtis75black said, all the greats defended their legacy. Even luke let snoop and dr dre have it after they put out dre day. ('cowards in compton' by luke, youtube it). Nelly got at krs-1 after krs tried to talk slicc on him, so don't sit here and act like people are to big or too small in hip hop to respond to a nigga that's asking for it. But, i guess in this new age of hip-hop where niggas kiss niggas, fabricate their life story and gang affiliations and etc, that shit flies.
