Beefs ain't what they used to be, and the world of hip-hop is honestly better for it.
But over the weekend, one California rapper was happy to have a war of words over social media -- and let some fists fly -- with one of Miami's local legends.
At the Nest, Lil Debbie and her entourage put a beatdown on hometown music man Otto Von Schirach when the latter jumped on the stage during her recent performance. What's less clear is why the fight went down.

However, Nest co-owner Anders Scherberger insists: "None of the 25 or so acts that played on that stage with that equipment had any sort of problems. All of a sudden, her opening acts and her DJ apparently were claiming that all of that equipment was faulty and all of it was breaking, when in reality, her DJ just didn't know what he was doing back there, I think."
Scherberger says Lil Debbie was tripping over her mic cord and unplugged it at least once, while one of her friends stumbled near the lighting equipment and knocked the light cords out of their sockets. Meanwhile, Lil Debbie was blaming the destruction on the venue.
"She just doesn't really know how to act onstage, I guess," Scherberger says.
It didn't help matters that the size of the crowd was underwhelming.
"When I got in there, there was like 30, 25 people," says Schirach, who joined the inside show after finishing up his own rowdy outside performance. "I've played shows where it's only like 20 or 30 people, and the energy is not the same when there's 100 or 200 or 1,000. The energy is at a minimal, and I think she was really complaining about that. She's maybe not used to doing shows where it's only 20 people, and she was upset."
