Beef is a 2003 documentary about Hip-Hop feuds directed by Peter Spirer. Narrated by Ving Rhames, the film chronicles all the major battles between 1981 and 2001, from the early '80s feud between Busy Bee Starski and Kool Moe Dee at the Harlem World Christmas Rappers Convention, to The East Coast-West Coast Hip Hop Rivalry of the early to mid '90s, to the highly published Mobb Deep vs. Jay Z beef in 2001. Other battles featured include KRS-One vs. MC Shan, 50 Cent vs. Murder Inc., Tru Life vs. Mobb Deep, Common vs. Ice Cube and the infamous beef between West Coast-based rapper 2Pac and East Coast-based rapper The Notorious B.I.G. The documentary uses a mixture of archival footage and interviews (past and present) from high-profile hip-hop artists, including Snoop Dogg, Kool Moe Dee, Jay-Z, Mack 10 and Ice-T, to examine how on-the-mic feuds can turn into street warfare in the neighborhoods of urban America.
