Cage vs Vast Aire Beef

In a day that marks the 1 year anniversary of the passing of the late great, Camu Tao, Cage took to his myspace blog to not only pay homage to his friend, but to air out Vast Aire:

It bothered me very much to see a lot of his enemies claiming this Love they had for him the day after he passed but none when he was dying for a year and a half.Some of you made it right with him before he died.I can understand except one person and in honor of Tero a true shit starter and fire ignitor I would like to out VAST AIRE you are a LIAR and Camu hated you and you know it.You shit on him when you knew he was dying.You disrespected his fiancee weeks after his passing with disrespectful emails.”Camu is in heaven looking down at you laughing at you” said Vast Aire to Camu’s fiance when she asked him to not go on a “hold the floor tour” and profit off of his death.”Camu owed me money from years ago” said Vast Aire(which is a lie)If those emails ever see the light of day you would vomit upon reading. The last you spoke to him was about 05 I believe.What goes around comes around.It was Camu who ousted you from WM when you were stealing from Yak and Tame on The Teen Wolf Tour and it was Camu who named you “SLOB BLOB SWEAT PANTS” If you use this day as a day to remember you should remember how you wronged a dying man with Cancer before AND after his death.

You use my beloved friends passing as a fucking tag line in your interviews and it is Vast Aire who I am talking about in Nothing left to say.

That was for you Mu

Vast Aire didn’t take long to respond via his myspace status & blog:

VAST AIRE-

UPDATE 2 FROM CAGE:

I am deleting this section. I was extremely angry this morning and I lashed out. I shouldn’t have and I know it’s still out there. I know Camu would be laughing at this because this was right up his alley but I was wrong. I guess in doing this I felt closer to Mu. I wasn’t advised by my publicist to write this, I am doing so on my own accordance. This is a day to remember the fallen. It was childish to indulge in this negative act of hatred.

I apologize.

Believe me there is no other reason I am taking this down.I don’t want to promote this sort of thing and it will ultimately bring me back to a negative path.

C.Palko

a message to Theodore Arrington becauseI was blocked on his myspace:

I attacked you unsolicited and I should have let it be.I miss Camu that much.You can keep your threats up if you like and attack me if you are hurt by the blog.This has nothing to do with anyone else you attacked in your blog I acted alone.There is no need for your racist remarks either,thats just pointless.I was wrong to disturb a day of remembering people we lost. If you do smack my hair wait a little while,I just got it cut.

peace

I will NOT approve slander against this dude in comments.

People make mistakes.

and of course, Vast Aire chimed in on the comments section of Cage’s blog (click to zoom):

UPDATE 3: Vast Aire has deleted his myspace blogs about this subject, but not before I captured yet another flaming rant from him:

its this simple, cage was wrong to come out of his face, and now he has dug his own grave. why disrespect camu tao like this? i dont have to prove anything. SA SMASH HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAM!

its sad to know these kids are holding mad shit in their little heads,  all i know is NOBODY can say i stole anything!!! you should get the facts before you run your mouth and make a fool out of yourself, you should be thinking about your transformer “buddy” and not me!

how could i steal form tame? who told you that your girlfriend yak ballz?

all you do is talk shit on a comp, or a 2-way, this is why you dont know shit.

but its cool.

i will see you-

v-

In closing, ef Vast Aire.

    fuck these WM cat’s? I guess he’s talking to everyone including EL. do they write songs with invisible pen’s? what’s fake? I dont hear anyone shooting anyone on any WM affiliated album since they all turned 25 and grew up. does EL-P take credit for beats he didnt create? is Shia a hologram? perhaps Yak’s beard is penciled in, maybe Chaunce is rockin a fat suit OR! maybe Sean Martin lip synched all the backup vocals for Hatebreed…fake indeed.

  • washington

    Cage deleted the rant section already and apologized. Good that he came to his senses, that is some petty shit to bring up. No one’s listening to Vast Aire these days anyways so Cage probably helped him more than he hurt him.

  • http://www.shabooty.com shabooty

    updated!

  • NYHC81

    it’s not petty when your man dies and people pretend to care who didnt like him before he passed. if he didnt write about it that shit could tear you apart inside out. no appologies.

  • namicx

    Big ups to cage for being the better person. Karma is a bitch vast.

  • stinkiepinkie

    long time listener, first time caller. all i have to say is. wow.

  • washington

    NYHC81, I say it’s petty only because look at where Cage is right now and look at where Vast is right now. Cage is looking to blow up big soon, and Vast could have died last week and not many would have noticed. Plus they both come off sounding about 15 years younger than they are (the internet is not a good look for either of them).

  • mdc2077

    I tend to believe cage on this one here…and as far as vast goes…when the beef between the weathermen and demigodz was going down..vast was an embarrassment both as an emcee and as a person…seems like he wanted the most attention at the time….but got toyed and made wm look weak…anyway cage and fam are to talented and have much success to look forward to…forget fatboy

  • nb1

    EEK! omg! this is sad to read! really, it is… glad cage took down his blog, but i probably woulda left it up, to be honest!! not nice on vast aire’s part!!! what a meanie! jeez! :(
    oh and “SLOB BLOB SWEAT PANTS” ha… hell naw!

  • WW(F)

    CAGE/ JUX/WEATHERMEN ARE TELENTED GUYS- BUT HE’S BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE HERE. BY THE LOOKS OF THIS WEBSITE AND ITS MAN CRUSHES ON EL-P AND SHAI LEBUFF- YOU ARE ALL BIASED CAGE FANS- BUT LETS NOT FORGET: THIS IS HIP HOP- ALL THE REAL HEADS THAT EVER GAVE DEF JUX ANY STREEET CRED ARE GHOST- C-RAYZ, MURS, LIF, CANOX..ETC- VAST DOESNT RUN WITH DEFJUX WHITE BOYS ANYMORE- AND I THINK CAGE WILL SEE THAT SOON. THE LXG FAM (KARNEIGE, VAST, GENESIS) ARE NOT ONLY RAW AND REAL HIP HOP (AND WORTH CHECKING OUT) BUT THEY ARE IN THE STREETS- NOT HOLLYWOOD SHOOTING VIDEOS WITH SHAI LEBUF!! NOT TO MENTION ITS PRETTY OBVIOUS CAGE IS DOING THIS AS A PUBLICITY STUNT TO SELL RECORDS. (THE OLD SCHOOL (REAL) JUX CROWD WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT COMING A MILE AWAY- GOES TO SHOW HOW JUX AND ITS FANS HAVE FALLEN OFF..) IS THIS WAS SOME PERSONAL ISH- HE SHOULD HAVE CONTACTED VAST MAN TO MAN- NOT BLOGGED ABOUT IT ON MYSPACE- THATS QUEER.

    • http://www.shabooty.com shabooty

      Did you go to Kanye typing school? cause that’s sorta queer, too!

    • Tha Lord

      “NOT TO MENTION ITS PRETTY OBVIOUS CAGE IS DOING THIS AS A PUBLICITY STUNT TO SELL RECORDS. (THE OLD SCHOOL (REAL) JUX CROWD WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT COMING A MILE AWAY”
      PUBLICITY FROM VAST??? I DIDNT REALISE VAST WAS SUCH A PUBLIC FIGURE??? I THOUGHT HE FELL OFF AFTER ESOTERIC SERVED HIM (THE ONLY WEATHERMAN THAT GOT SERVED)… HE NEEDS TO BE SHOT IN THE FACE TEN TIMES IN THE SAME PLACE.
      ALSO HE STARTED SHIT BEFORE THIS, WHEN HE DISSED THE WEATHERMEN ON THAT WACK COLLAB WIT COPY.

    • luis

      fuck color.

      this is hiphop.

      all of a sudden white people are minority?

      fuck that,

      wake the fuck up.

  • WW(F)

    KANYE TYPING SCHOOL. DONT LISTEN TO KANYE- DONT KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN. MYSPACE GANGSTERS ARE QUEER. SORRY BUD. PLEASE TELL YOUR BUTT BUDDDY CAGE NOT TO CANCEL THOSE SOUTHPAW (BK) TOUR DATES. THATS GONNA BE FUN.

  • John

    I agree with WW(F) COMPLETELY.

  • filthy

    Cage is a str8 up BITCH!! Yo vast make sure u slap fya outta his emo bitch looking ass…how could u go from beign all gangsta nyc looking thug to some str8 faggot looking queer? And his “Loyal” fans still run with him? Im 100% its a buncha faggot ass white ppl who admire his queer ass…FUCK CAGE! L.A ALL DAY BITCH..BIG UPS 2 VAST.

  • C4

    For all of you hating Cage for developing – How many of you are still doing the exact same stuff you did 10 years ago? Hang around the same friends, talk about the same stuff with the same words, listen to the same music?

    I don’t se how it is “real” to pretend you’re be 20 when you’re not.

    And whats the obsession with the guy’s haircut? Are you hairdressers?

    “cage is a liar and a fake. i remeber when cage hated on def jux and wanted to put WEATHERMEN records ONLY on EC. BUT NOW THERE NO EC, HE HAS TO JUMP ON DEF JUX’S DICK.”
    Interesting, but i have to say to vast, everyone knows cage leaving ec was the reason the label went the way it did. It wasnt ever a case of the label going under so he went to jux.
    Im not a fan of caes new shit to much, but vast fell off after cold vein (lyrically anyway), he got lazy… i miss the old vast, and the old cage for that matter… CAgE Wins though.

  • dizzy over this

    VAST IS WILDING. But CAGE is worse. Using Camu’s name to set-off personal beef with Vast was a wack thing to do – Especially since Cage claims that Camu was his friend. . .Next time Cage, use your own name to start all that bull shit.

  • E-Pox

    The only Reason i picked up Can-Ox was cuz El-P produced it, Vast never impressed me as a lyricist, just a bad poet.street or not , he’s lame. If you wnat to argue with me fin, but “peotics’ isn’t an excuse for laziness.

    CC/WM that’s the crew that has my vote

  • abeesting

    Vast Aire is a fat retard with a speech problem. Revengeoftherobots?? “i look to the sky like hey zues… like hey god….”
    really? were you really like that?
    ps your freestyle was trash

  • Beef Eater – Pork Promoter

    NONE OF THESE DUDES ARE GANGSTA!! SO LETS GET THAT STR8!
    Now, On the real there is a thing called “SLANDER” Cage took it upon himsef to “SLANDER” Vast Aire’s name. Vast had nothing but love for Camu. If anyone was using Camu’s name to push there music lets listen – If I’m not mistaken “To Promote The Song NOTHING LEFT TO SAY” Cage pushed it on his page on the memorial of Camu’s death, Second I recall hearing Camu’s name brought up in that same song and it wasn’t for the purpose of respect, it was to supposedly disrespect Vast? CAGE you’re a murderer….. You’re Kiling Camu’s spirit – Now everyone will remember his name being involved with BEEF! WHAT DISRESPECT CAGE! How can you live with that, I thought you cared about Camu’s name?

  • Cage, bring Shia LeBeouf’s security with you

    Cage shouldn’t have said jack shit from the get, son made himself look like a herb and shitted on his man’s memory in one failed power move. If he had something to say to Vast, he should have contacted him and handled it, not use Camu as the reason to dish out some weak azz diss track. Don’t cancel your tour dates in Brooklyn Cage. Hey, isn’t Southpaw in Park Slope where Vast Aire lives?. Oops lol.

    • Disfigured Night

      No doubt cage will have security when he hits Brooklyn, Vast is known for smackin’ niggaz in the mouth that talk reckless. I cant say that I completly hated the new Cage joint but it was a tad bit emo and the shit that vast drops is dope at least 90% of the time(is he considering a WU lcob/killa bee move?). Cage has no doubt changed his style, so if you still like him like you used to you are a very very loyal fan. And he looks like a bitch. No disrespect but he wears girls pants and shit. That shit is mad whack! I notice no mention of ace rizzle, are Aesop and Vast still cool? or is vast seriously shitting on everyone in the weathermen crew? Either way I will still rock both camps but Cage is starting to remind me of a suicide girl a bit. That is all.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/tunepak/2058207 Broken Needle

    LMFAO, Cage got his ass beat so bad, son apologized
    what was u thinking…? drama causing for no reason

    oh and Vast u gotta get on the mic with MF Doom again man

  • http://www.cnn.com Ricky Kasso

    vast who?

  • Lord Linkomass..

    Dear oh dear oh dear..
    Cage wares after time..
    Cann Ox is timeless..
    & Def Jux.. after coming with the heat in the early 21st
    they have gone cold in the later 21st..
    even your blind man stevie can see that..
    the money has made them too comfortable..

  • gem-n-eye

    I like songs by Vast and by Cage, just like biggie and 2pac, so enjoy the music and leave the beef to the burger before we loose any more of our mc’s…and word up to Mr. Lif, Aesop Rock, Slug and the Oldominion crew

  • fiendn4smut27

    cage fell off, anyone that was a real fan of Cage knows this, he’s an emo fag, he didnt “grow up” rocking studded belts and fag haircuts is not growing up, I’m happy Def Fux is done for good riddance El-P ruined everyone, it’s true about how everybody left that shit and now it blew up in El-P’s face, no one that’s been up on cage since before Smut Peddlers even listens to his hot garbage whiny ish anymore, I’m happy I can at least say that I’ve been to a Cage and Mu show and I got to hear Radiohead live and Hold The Floor,

  • R&B

    im mad late on all this ish but vast has issues & he’s racist! all he could bring up alot was racial shit & he dont know nothing about anyones life! he’s the real low life….

  • Sweede

    I hate the fact that Vast got a fucked up brain office. But I guess that’s what makes him a good artist. Just as with Salvador Dalí.

    Don’t get me wrong though. I’m definitely no implying that Vast is as great as Dalí. I _only_ used him as another example of cases when FUCKED UP BRAIN + ART = BRILLIANCE.

    And for some reason it seems to me like Vast himself is writing some of the comments against cage using different aliases. That’s something only MF DOOM could’ve done without me looking down at the deed doer (as a person).

    I also gotta say that this site look’s like it’s run by someone who without hesetation could fake e.g. print screens…so I’m not yet sure what to believe.

    I still dislike Vast’s way of acting. And I ain’t talking cinematics…hehe. Or maybe it’s like cinematics? He’s outta control…Now I’ve had it with my own bad jokes. e.g. The Esoteric-feud (and I consider Esoteric one of the wackest to ever sell a record). I think Vast Aire himself needs to adress people more often like men and maybe not want to make it his temporary goal in life to “smack” everyone who didn’t adress him as a man.

    The Cold Vein will always be on my top 10 favourite albums of all time-list. Nothing can change that.

    I almost forgot. I love Movies for the Blind also. Not on my top ten, but definitely an incredible album. Cage nowadays is incredibly wack tho.

    If this is true, there’s one person that has proven to not deserve being adressed as a man. And I think you all know who that is. VAST IS!…maybe that man.

    PEACE

    (you’ll have to excuse me for writing so strange, but I didn’t want all this text to take too much time to write)

  • Stupid.

    Holy shit. Cage is a straight pussy. Naw’I’Mean?

  • Thisperson22

    Vast Aire made the biggest fool out of himself. Cage was the bigger man in this, he managed to actually present himself in a mature manner in both blogs. That’s all I have to say about that..and why are so many people talking crap about Cage’s style of dress and hair? So what he doesn’t dress gangster. I didn’t know you had to look a certain way to rap. Thought it was about the music not wearing a certain type of clothes. And what’s up with calling Cage fake. Cage has likely been through more shit than anyone on this comment board. How’s that fake?

    • HeyLookMyLifeIsHorribleSoNoOneCanCallMeAFakeNoMatterHowHardIFront :D

      …LMAOOOO I’ve never heard such an illogical conclusion. Just because someone lived a hard life doesn’t give them an excuse to change styles like their shoes. He went from thug to horrorcore to emo. It seems like hes changing with the trends, rather than just being himself. Each time he “evolves”, he is just attempting to be as cutting edge as possible in the music industry. Granted that the person has been through a hard life, but that doesn’t take our rights to criticize his style. If he has always had the same difficult life, then why wasn’t he an emo ra- oh I’m sorry “progressive” rapper to begin with? Why the hardcore front?

      Honestly, from how I see it, this beef was just a business venture for Cage. He fired a shot and just wanted to see the response, and respond in a manner which would benefit him the most. Vast responded to Cage like he was on drugs or something, and so Cage latched on to that and withdrew his previous comments so that he can appear to be the better man.

      And the fact that Cage is now doing music with Kid Cudi just reaffirms my belief that this entire beef was just a business venture (as all beefs are recently in the hip hop world)

      • lame

        As an artist you can do what the fuck you want to do with your music, your not limited to one genre. People change, and if cage feels like he wanted to do different shit that’s his decision.
