In most cultures, weed can be a great unifier. Something about passing the kush just makes people come together. So months after news of a slight beef between Waka Flocka and Wiz Khalifa first hit the web, its surprising to learn that it all got started over the Mary Jane.

The "Round of Applause" rapper hit up MTV and gave the real deal behind the story. According to Flocka, after a puff puff pass session, a few of his jokes toward Wiz were taken personally, "sparking" a lightweight rivalry.

Tonight's season finale episode of MTV's "Hip Hop POV" (airs midnight ET) is filled with reveals and insider gossip. Waka Flocka Flame opens up about his beef with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa. Despite appearing on the same episode of Hip Hop POV a few weeks ago, the buzzy rappers have not been the best of friends. In a sit-down with Def Jam's Bu Thiam, Flocka says that it was weed of all things, that sparked the feud, as the two were smoking and Wiz couldn't hang. Wiz then took to Twitter and threw shots at Waka but the "Round of Applause" rapper has "no problem" now with Wiz. Wiz echoed this sentiment in an interview with "RapFix Live" last month, saying, "I don't have problems with people, because if I do, I address it. If I feel someone disrespected me or if I feel like somebody was mentioning me in an indirect way I'ma find out how to talk to that person and then we'll squash it from there.".(MTV)

Waka added that not only does he consider the feud trivial, he even passed on a CD of tracks to Wiz on the strength.

As Waka tells it, he met Wiz at a show and, after passing around some "mosquito" joints, he joked that Wiz "can't hang." This allegedly lead Wiz to take to Twitter, declaring "[D]on't be fooled. Waka Flocka knows nothing about weed." The video interview is brief, but it's clear that Waka doesn't take the whole feud too seriously, claiming repeatedly that the whole thing was meant to be "a joke." Waka also claims to have given Wiz "a whole CD of Lex Luger beats," saying, "That's how he got that sound."(PrefixMag)
