Now, just a little over one week faraway from the “beef’s” peak, Joyner Lucas seems to have deleted “ZEZE” from his ficial YouTube web page.

It would seem that the “Wear Orange” group textual content went by way of unimpeded. Though coordinated the three could also be, one has to surprise in the event that they’re on the identical web page the place “BARS” are involved.

I is perhaps the one particular person duped into considering there can be a freestyle rap battle, and for that I am sorry.
