As the year comes to a close tonight, everyone is reflecting on the past 12 months. The highs, the lows, the funny moments, the scary moments, the dramatic moments and the like…and a lot of those moments happened on or because of Twitter! We watched the ChRihanna reunion unfold through tweets, we learned of the KimYe pregnancy from the social network, the list goes on. Based on hits from YOU guys, below is the top 10 moments that happened on Twitter this year. Who knows what 2013 has in store!
5. Rick Ross chimes in on his boy French Montana’s beef with his nemesis 50 Cent
You guys cared more about Rozay’s opinion/commentary on the beef than the actual beef! After 50 Cent and French Montana traded jabs on Twitter following Fif’s offense at comments French had made in an interview, it was rather fitting that the biggest bawse jump in and comment. After all, he has a heavy hand in French’s debut album that’s on the way, and who could forget the public feud he’s long had with 50? Luckily this didn’t spark a war similar to the peak of the 50/Ross feud. That one got rather ugly after a while!
4. Lil Kim capitalizes on Nicki Minaj skipping out on Hot 97’s Summer Jam
We all know what went down between Nicki Minaj and Hot 97 that fateful day of Summer Jam in June. Seeing an opportunity to get at the person she’s had beef with for a while now, Kim took to Twitter to send out a few subs. Nicki never responded.
3. The wigged-out Nicki Minaj shows off her natural hair!
Since her time in the mainstream, Nicki Minaj has become very well known for her love of colorful wigs. Never one to do the same style often, the Young Money raptress switches her ‘dos up quite frequently, from long blonde curls, to crazy pink afros, leopard print bobs and everything in between. But don’t think she does it because she doesn’t have good hair! In fact, what’s under there is just as long…if not longer (depending on the wig)…than the wig she’s wearing! While getting her hair braided back in October, Nicki decided to share her natural hair with her Barbz. Thank those good old Trini roots!
2. Philly Feuding! Meek Mill and Cassidy go head to head, from tweets to wax!
Meek Mill did an interview about battle rap (the scene he’d came up on), and told the reporter that he’d love to see a battle between battle vets Cassidy and Murda Mook. Somehow this got misconstrued, and it ended up being interpreted as Meek saying he’d want to battle Cass himself. In a rather cocky response, Cassidy did an interview and said sure, he’d battle Meek…..for a cool $100k. This was laughable to Meek, who took to Twitter telling the Philly OG that if he wants to battle, he’d have to get a single poppin’ first. Of course Cas came right back, and it’s been beef, tweets and disses on wax ever since! As we go into the New Year, it’s still ongoing and word is Cassidy will be dropping a new diss tonight!
1. Jeezy and Ross get into a scuffle backstage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards……brought to you live and direct by the famous DJ-suddenly-turned-reporter-for-a-night, Funk Flex!
Before the video footage made its way to the web, Funk Flex used his Twitter account to tweet a play-by-play of some major drama that went down between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy backstage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards in September. This very post is what you guys LOVED the most out of all the Twitter moments in 2012! Go Flex!
