Twitter is a wild place. One moment, you can be enjoying the free entertainment provided by countless memes and .gifs. The next, you're in a war of words with a random stranger who lives in their grandmother's basement.

You just never know what to expect when you refresh your timeline.

For instance, if you're Talib Kweli, you might get pegged as a racist by the likes of Long Island emcee Diabolic and Wu-Tang-affiliate Remedy.

Now, I don't know the full details on why everything went down — and, frankly, it doesn't even matter — but Kweli felt the need to pen a (extremely lengthy) piece on Medium called "When 'White Fragility' Affects Rappers" that shares his thoughts on "white supremacist rappers" and YT's in Hip-Hop.

"If we are all in this profession together, we are supposed to show respect for our peers. If I’ve never met another rapper, I’m not going to troll him on Twitter. Even if I disagreed with something he tweeted, I would address it privately. Even if I felt the need to address publicly, I would do so with respect. Diabolic failed to do any of this. In the face of Diabolic’s blatant disrespect, I respectfully asked him to prove his accusations, more than once. Just like Remedy, he refused to, because he could not. They were lies."

Feeling disrespected himself, Diabolic skipped the "book report" and went to work on an actual diss track. The result, a four-minute assault called "IneKwelity."

:what: You think papoose is a lyrical messiah though..
papoose rhymes have subtle, intricate structures. it takes a few listens to catch some of the symmetries he sets up

talib literally just read off a bunch of his tweets and this other dude's just brute-forcing punchlines

there are levels to this shit and pap is on a higher one
