So nominations from the 2016 Grammy have dropped and unsurprisingly Kendrick Lamar received a shitload—11 to be exact. But while it seems that almost everyone is digging Lamar and his music, it seems that fellow rapper Wale isn’t sharing in the love.
What started as Wale sarcastically firing shots over Twitter in regards to his lack of Grammy nominations quickly turned into a more personal attack on the To Pimp a Butterfly artist, when a fan proposed a joint Wale and Kendrick Lamar tour.
@JourdanChaTaun ain’t answered that phone since the last nomination . I get the Demi lavato treatment from him now. It’s hard out here

While most just dismissed the comment as childish banter, Jay Rock was quick to fire back, referring to Meek Mill dismissing Wale from the MMG label over, you guessed it—more twitter insults.
@wale I SEE WHY U NOT MMG. SMH.

Both rappers continued with the subtweets for a couple, with Wale still responding to random people’s criticisms online. Check out some of them above and see the latest from Wale URL here.
