Hip hop rivalries (often referred to as beefs) have existed since the dawn of hip hop music, which originated in the 1970s in New York City, United States. Originally, it came to block parties, where DJs would play records and isolate the percussion breaks for the dancing masses.

Soon, MCs began speaking over the beats, usually simply exhorting the audience to continue dancing. Eventually, MCs began incorporating more varied and stylistic speech, and focused on introducing themselves, shouting out to friends in the audience, boasting about their own skills, and criticizing their rivals. While this was often done in good humor, the deaths of 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G. have meant that in todays hip hop scene it is always feared that lyrical rivalries will develop into offstage feuds that become violent.

Observers have claimed that the media feed on such rivalries for headlines and blow situations out of proportion, a good example of which was the infamous East Coast-West Coast rivalry of the 1990s. One prominent example used as contrast by those who feel that the media manipulate and intensify hip hop rivalries was the 1980s hit Roxanne, Roxanne by U.T.F.O., which sparked several hundred answer records in response, some of which were quite vituperative (see the Roxanne Wars). At the time, hip hop was nowhere as widespread as it would eventually become, and as such there was little media response to that record.

The beef never made it onto the streets. The recent high-profile beef between Nas and Jay-Z was carried out without ever threatening to become violent.
