Moka Only responds to the Snak The Ripper vs. Madchild beef

Vancouver, BC – Canadian rap vet and former Swollen Members artist Moka Only just released a video statement (filmed by Lloyd from Canada) explaining his position on the Snak The Ripper vs. Madchild rap beef.

Mr. Mellow found himself caught in the middle of the beef when both Madchild and Snak name-dropped him in their diss tracks. On “The Funeral” Madchild insisted that Moka wanted to kick Snak’s head in. But then Snak fired back saying: “That was a lie what you said bout Moka O and Prevail/ How you like the screen shots/ Stomp you till your spleen pops.” And then Snak posted a screenshot from a conversation he had with Moka where Moka claims he didn’t want to kick Snak’s head in.

(Updated Nov. 7 at 12:23 pm: As Madchild has pointed out, Snak The Ripper did initially namedrop Moka Only in “Assisted Suicide” when he said “I feel bad for Moke and Prev/ What the f**k did you do?/ Wake up one day and decide to f**k over your crew).

Moka Only uses this video to claim his role as the ‘Peacekeeper.’ He refuses to pick sides with this beef: “They’re trying to have a good battle. So they use anything that they can in order to use as ammunition. But unfortunatly, I got dragged in the middle of it.”

Long story short – you need to be selfish in order to progress in the game: “I’m try ‘na hop up out the Coupe in ’em Owens/ Focus Michael Jordon/ Focus on the moment/ Serotonin ain’t important/ ‘Til them whips imported/ These bitches/ Imported/ F**k the love the showing dog/ Just know there ain’t limits to this.”

Snak The Ripper fires back at Madchild in less than 24 hours with this video for “Child Abuse”

Vancouver, BC – Yesterday afternoon Madchild finally responded to Snak The Ripper with the release of his diss track titled “The Funeral (Snak The Ripper Diss).” It’s been less than 24 hours and Snak The Ripper has already fired back with a new diss track and video titled “Child Abuse.”

It took Madchild five days to crank out his song, which was nearly six minutes long. Madchild claims he has been sober from cocaine for three years. Then he said Snak’s flow was stolen from ONYX, and that Stealth Bomb Records signee Merkules is ten times better than Snak.

Snak gets back on the offensive with this song by hitting Madchild with some more shots. He gets real personal on this response. Snak claims that Madchild drugs women with GHB when they don’t want to have sex with him. The video also includes a screenshot of a conversation Snak had with Moka Only, which discredits Madchild’s claim that Moka Only dislikes Snak. Then Snak gets REALLY personal and directs some of his bars at Madchild’s main bad bitch, Lola the puppy. Snak insinuates that Mad puts peanut butter on his lady bits for Lola to lick off.

Check out the video and peep the lyrics for this diss after the jump
