Too Grown For This: Lyfe Jennings And Raheem DeVaughn Beefing On Twitter?

August 29, 2013  |  

It’s a sad day when two grown men are arguing over nothing over Twitter. It’s even more sad when one of those men is still on parole and should be trying to keep his nose clean. But this is where we are right now with Lyfe Jennings and Raheem DeVaughn.

So it all started when Lyfe Jennings took a page from Kendrick Lamar’s book and issued an R&B challenge. (Don’t laugh.) This is what Lyfe had to say:

“Ima do what Lamar did but n the r&b game. Ima issue a friendly challenge. Im writin now.r&b get ready! Ima name names too! Get ya pens out!!”

Jennings challenged artists like Anthony Hamilton, Kem, Raheem Devaughn, Musiq Soulchild, Jaheim. Artists he claims he respects.

But apparently…or according to Lyfe, Raheem DeVaughn didn’t take too kindly to being called out. On Lyfe’s Twitter page…where all of this so-called “beef” is happening, because DeVaughn is not engaging, Jennings said that Raheem DeVaughn said he didn’t want to ride in a car with him because of this challenge.

And then he popped off as follows:

First, R&B is not Hip Hop. Your music should be about love and relationships and not fighting with other dudes…via Twitter, no less. Secondly, it’s painfully and embarrassingly clear that Lyfe is the only one trippin’. Even if Raheem said he didn’t want to ride with you in the car, why are you mad?! Furthermore, you’re the one looking like an idiot when he doesn’t respond to your tweets…TWEETS! What else can I say but this is really some dumb ish and it seems like Lyfe, who is a talented vocalist–without all the theatrics–, is trying to get some shine from all of this. Sad day, indeed.
