When the camera is on a celebrity 24/7, it's hard not to have every moment of their day captured on someone's smartphone or a paparazzi camera. That's why celebrities spend so much money and effort securing their privacy. When it comes to hip-hop, the ability to have a private life is all but thrown away as a rapper. Cameras follow their every move and, in some cases, an overzealous fan can make a moment awkward for everyone.

Recently, there has been more rappers than not getting into very public incidents and it's all been caught on camera. Jim Jones was recently filmed going off on deli clerks because they didn't want to give him change for a $100 bill. Drake was spotted yelling backstage after a show in Phoenix, Ariz. because someone broke into his tour bus and stole his entourage's jewelry -- a reported loss of $2 million. These are just a few incidents that happened in the last week.

Hip-hop is like no other genre of music. It's braggadocios, its edgy and breeds confrontation. As a rap star, it's expected that personal space will be violated and there could very well be a target put on their back, which leads to moments like what you'll see below. XXL dug around the web to collect stories of rappers going off in public. Whether it was about money or disrespect, here are rappers who were caught giving someone a piece of their mind.

    Jones didn't stop there. “How 'bout that? Work for yours, like I work for mines” and “It’s not a crime. I got money.” At the end of the conversation, he has a good laugh about it all, telling the camera, “Today was entertaining. I had a blast.”
