In the world of hip-hop, alliances between rappers and producers can be powerful, but sometimes they can sour due to affiliations. Shawty Redd, a veteran beatmaker, recently shed light on a pivotal incident that triggered the feud between Rap-A-Lot Records and BMF during an Instagram Live session on October 18.
Shawty Redd, now 42 years old, recounted a specific event that took place in Houston and served as the catalyst for the escalating tensions between the two influential music entities.
It all began during Slim Thug’s first album release. Slick Pulla slapped me ’cause I was f**kin’ with Gucci Mane. Jeezy tried to beat me up, ya feel me? They jumped me, but I was on J. Prince’s watch, and that’s how the whole Rap-A-Lot–BMF sh*t started, but ain’t nobody finna tell you that.”
