Earlier this week, Lil B released a very #rare diss track, taking belated “shots” at NYC rapper Joey Bada$$ for an offhanded, innocuous line his late crew member Capital STEEZ tossed out months ago.

Left: Fab 5 Freddy. Right: SEVER. See comparison close-ups of the stolen “S” and “V” and read the rant […]
