Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock somewhere, you’ve probably heard about the Yungen Vs Chip beef. In this post I’m going to show you why the Yungen Vs Chip beef started, I’ll keep you updated with the latest diss tracks and I’ll share my opinions on who I think is winning. Keep checking this post as the week goes on because I’ll update it as soon as anything happens.

I also explained why this beef started and shared my thoughts with some friends on the Talk About It podcast that you can listen to below if you’re not into reading. (New episodes of the Talk About It Podcast come out every Thursday btw, you can listen to it on YouTube, iTunes and Soundcloud.):

Chip – 96 Bars of Revenge

So the roots of the beef originally started on October 9th 2015 when Chip mentioned Yungen in his 96 Bars Of Revenge video. This was another in a series of dissess aimed at Manchester MC Bugzy Malone whom Chip became entangled in a beef with after he took shots at Tinie Tempah. In the track Chip says:

Some of your best newcomers ain’t new,

so if you’re gonna nominate Yungen, big up but nominate Sneakbo too. I’m cash motto but I’m playing dirty cah too many man wanna try and murk me,

They can out shoot me they can out stab me but mum’s life they can’t out verse me.

If I named you I rate you, I weren’t dissing you, cos I know how the Internet works.

Diss get three in a week from this nerd, then lemme give you that Internet work.

In my opinion, he didn’t diss Yungen at all in this track, he clearly said “If I named you I rate you” two bars after naming Yungen. However, you can listen for yourself:

Yungen – Comfy

Yungen was evidently not pleased about what Chip said because he addressed it in his song Comfy. This came out on February 5th, 2016. Almost 4 months after Chip originally mentioned him. In response to Chip he says:

Man wanna talk about me at the mobos like I ain’t earned it.

Man wanna talk about my nomination like I don’t deserve it.

Man wanna bring me down I know man was happy with the verdict .

How I didn’t win something for Ain’t On Nutten blud pour me a tea mans kermit

Now I when I heard this, my ears stuck up and I was alert. I felt like it was fair for Yungen to share his views on what Chip said and I didn’t think anything would come from it. I thought wrong. You can listen to Comfy here:

Chip – One Take Freestyle

On February 19th, 2016, the shit hit the fan. Chip released his One Take freestyle and he was not holding any punches. He dissed Yungen, Tinie Tempah, Bugzy Malone and even Dappy. Now a Dappy and Chip beef would be very exciting, but in the meantime, you can listen to Chip’s One Take freestyle here:

Yungen – Punk (Sh*tmunk Diss)

Yungen did not take that diss lying down though. He responded within the hour with a reply. The music video also featured a cameo from Tinie Tempah, which, Tinie later found out, probably wasn’t the best idea. Docta Cosmic, (Krept and Konan’s DJ and Manager) explained why Yungen had a pre-recorded Chip diss ready in this tweet:

I heard that Chip had been posting pictures of his One Take diss a week prior to its release and had made it clear that stern words for Yungen may appear on the track. However, I cannot confirm nor deny any of these theories. You may come to your own conclusion.

Yungen’s Punk (Shitmunk Diss) track was fire in my opinion though. I respect the tactical move he made, being prepared with a diss track, no matter why he prepared it. It allowed him to remain on level footing with Chip in the critical early stages of this beef. If he had taken too long, he may have fallen victim to the memes and the cruelty of the internet (a position you should pray you never find yourself in).

However, Yungen did claim he was “only going to do this once” after which a punch sound effect occurred. I believe that was a major tactical error. Listen to the diss here:

Chip – Michelle Riddim (Lil Clive Diss)

Chip didn’t stay quiet for long. On Feb 20th he released Michelle Riddim (Lil Clive Diss) in which he replied to all the points Yungen made in his previous diss in spectacular fashion, in my opinion. Chip also dissed Tinie Tempah for appearing in Yungen’s diss video. This caused Tinie Tempah to fall victim to memes and the cruelty of the internet (a position you should pray you never find yourself in).

I thought this song was absolute flames. At this point, Chip was winning in my eyes, but I didn’t count Yungen out at all.

You can listen to Chip’s Michelle Riddim (Lil Clive Diss) here:

Yungen – Oopsy Daisy Riddim

On February 21st 2016, Yungen replied. He came back in a timely manner with his next Chip diss Oopsy Daisy Riddim, but it wasn’t strong enough in my opinion. He even contradicted his previous statement in which he said he was “only going to do this once” after which a punch sound effect occurred. He didn’t offer a reasonable explanation to why he was a) doing this more than once and b) not punching up Chip. I, of course, am happy with him replying and engaging in musical beef. I hope no physical beef comes of it but Yungen contradicting himself like this with no reasonable explanation leads me to distrust anything he says. Major tactical error. If Yungen hadn’t eluded to the fact that he was going to punch up Chip if he replied this track would have had him in a much stronger position.

He puts forth a solid effort on this song and it’s well worth listening to. He makes some great points and effectively addressing things Chip said in his prior diss. However, the very beginning and the very end of the song were very cheesy to me and thus, made this song weaker than it could have been.

Listen to it here:

Chip – L (Lil’ Clive Diss 2)

Chip came back within 24 hours again. On February 22nd he released his reply to Yungen L (Lil’ Clive Diss 2). In this track, Chip addressed the fact that Yungen had already lost because he said he was “only going to do this once”, after which a punch sound effect occurred, but replied anyway. He makes a very good point. He also replied to what Yungen said in his previous track very efficiently. This song was very strong and put Chip in the clear lead for me.

You can listen Chip’s L (Lil’ Clive Diss 2) here:

At the time of me writing this, Chip is in the lead for me. Yungen needs to address why he said he was “only going to do this once” (after which a punch sound effect occurred), but then replied in order to have a chance of winning me over. Or he needs to go fight Chip, but I hope it doesn’t come to that.

I’ll keep updating this post, so if Yungen replies or punches up Chip, I’ll be sure to let you know. Stay Tuned.

In the meantime, tweet me your opinions on the Yungen and Chip beef so far and let me know who you think is winning. Or comment below.
