    This was bound to happen sooner or later. In the age of online beefing, Azealia Banks and Lupe Fiasco are two of the most prolific personalities in hip-hop. While they may often struggle to get their music out, their opinions seem to face no such problems. Lately, they've been circling each others' orbits, nearly always coming out on the opposite sides of issues, but never colliding head-on until now.

    How the hell did we make it through fifty percent of 2015 already? June has seemingly crept up out of nowhere, marking the halfway checkpoint of a year that, so far, has been ripe with exceptional releases from some of hip-hop’s brightest emcees. Releases-- highly anticipated or dropped by surprise, some commercial mixtapes and some full albums -- have infused the year with some fun that surely help the time pass as we approach the new year.

    The other day Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter to declare a new initiative for his fans. Lupe announced he'd be offering up a personalized one verse song for fans for the price of $500. He made it clear this is not for a feature or collaboration, but for the fan's own personal enjoyment.   There were some stipulations of course, one of which is that you would have to come pick up a physical copy of the CD in person, pay the $500 in cash, and sign a usage contract. The whole endeavor has left some people scratching their heads, one of whom appears to be Kid Cudi.

    While he didn't actually release an album last year, Kendrick Lamar managed to put the rap game in a stir. "Control" kept the rapper in the conversation throughout 2013, but in the new year, the rapper has been a little more low-key. One would assume that this is because K.Dot is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city.

The rapper shared a video challenge today, suggesting he, King Los, and Black Thought could take on any rapper in a battle. It didn't take long for rappers to start responding, with King Los co-signing the challenge, and Lupe Fiasco starting writing some mock bars (including one with a Quentin Miller punchline).

    Lupe Fiasco's big break came from his appearance on Kanye West's song, "Touch The Sky", so it's surprising to hear he wasn't exactly jumping at the opportunity to get on a 'Ye record at the time. In a new interview with DJ Skee, Lupe explained that despite both being from Chicago, he and Kanye were of different scenes, and at first he wasn't really feeling the vibe of "Touch The Sky".

    Lupe Fiasco has been in a battle with Atlantic records for what seems to be forever. We all know about his discontent with Lasers and on his mixtape Friend of the People he made it clear that he wanted off the label. He did not get his wish before this album dropped, and that almost prevented us from hearing this album entirely. Lupe has done interviews in which he says the album would never come out if Atlantic Records had their way. Given the acclaim that this album has been receiving lately, that would have been a tragedy.
