Perhaps we should just get everyone together for a steak dinner, since everyone wants beef so badly.

It has been quite the summer for hip-hop drama. Alleged ghostwriters! Attempted murders! Bankruptcy! We have been served enough material for at least three seasons of a new reality show.

Not even death can stop hip-hop controversy from rearing its head, it seems. On this episode, Poppa Wu appears to have gotten into some sort of verbal altercation with Action Bronson, at the wake of rapper Sean Price. Poppa Wu is the second artist affiliated with Wu Tang Clan to recently have beef with Bronson. That's right. During an occasion that is intended only for friends and family to pay their respects, someone HAD to stir the pot. The altercation comes off more as a desperate cry for attention, than a defense against the LAST time someone had issues with Bronson.

Earlier this summer, Action Bronson and Ghostface Killah exchanged a few words, but (temporarily) made peace via Twitter. A controversy that was over, almost as soon as it started. But nope! It couldn't be left alone. Poppa Wu had to defend his own! An apology was not good enough! A video uploaded from the wake shows Poppa Wu, Action Bronson, and some onlookers engaged in some sort of verbal dispute. It is impossible to decipher what is said, but none of it sounds positive, as Action Bronson walks away from the group.

Poppa Wu later confirmed the confrontation, posting a picture of it to his Instagram account.

In what seems to be an attempt to separate himself, Ghostface tweeted about the incident, denying his involvement in yesterday's altercation.


Like all other recent hip-hop controversy, we can probably rest easy knowing that Action Bronson's side of the story will come to light sooner rather than later. While I am sure Poppa Wu felt he was fighting the good fight and just defending his own, the fact that this even happened at a wake comes off as incredibly petty and childish. People were there to pay respects to a well-loved artist, not for their own personal gain. Besides, doesn't Poppa know that all of the real fights go down on Twitter these days?
