File this under “must’ve missed it,” but Ludacris and Big Sean have put their beef behind them. The tiff started after Sean and Luda debated over who originated a certain rap flow, but during a May episode of BET’s “106 & Park” Sean quickly announced that he and Cris had talked things out.
Many missed the moment, but Luda also confirmed that the two had a chance to hash out their differences when he sat with Bootleg Kev during a Memorial Day weekend radio interview in Las Vegas. On Monday (June 25) a video version of the interview popped up on YouTube and reached rap fans outside of Vegas’ borders.
“We had a show in Australia and we actually got a chance to sit down,” Luda said of his meeting with Big Sean. “We’re just gonna keep it positive right now.”
On Big Sean’s 2010 mixtape single “Supa Dupa” he employed a start and stop flow, where he delivered his one-word punchlines in a similar way that Twitter users employ hashtags. Drake, Fabolous and Luda have all used the flow after Sean dropped “Supa Dupa,” but on “History Lesson” a skit off of Luda’s 2011 1.21 Gigawatts: Back to the First the ATL rapper used soundbites to trace the hotly contested rap style back to A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 classic “Buggin’ Out.” Then of course Luda proceeded to dis both Big Sean and Drake on “Bada Boom.” But now it seems all the drama is over, maybe we can even get a Big Sean/Ludacris collaboration. Who knows?
