Never surrender halo Benzinos

Never surrender halo

Benzinos music career took a nosedive, while Eminems rap career flourished. After a nasty breakup, ex-NWA partners Eazy-E and Dr. Dre traded insults non-stop. Just when it looked like Dre had sealed the deal with Dre s Day, Eazy-E fought back with Real Muthaf-kin Gs. Eazy attacked Dre and Snoop, dubbing them studio gangsters who had never really witnessed the harsh realities of the hood. As if that wasnt enough, he devoted plenty of airtime to Dres past as a member of the electro-pop group World Class Wrecking Cru, ridiculing Dres fruity outfit. Damn it s a trip how a n-a can go so quick from wearing lipstick to smoking on chronic at picnics, he rapped. Eazy threw in a pic of Dre dressed in pumps and mascara to boot. Imagine if Eazy-E had Photoshop in 1 Canibus is known for battling himself on wax, but he truly earned his stripes by squaring off against Uncle L in his prime. The odds were heavily stacked against Bis until he unleashed Second Round KO, which featured Mike Tyson. This lyrical uppercut is something like a blueprint for some of todays illest rhyme pugilists. History teaches us that one surefire way to draw the ire of a fellow MC is to publicly indict them for hip-hops demise. It worked for Soulja Boy and Ice T in 2009, just as it worked for Common and Westside Connection in 1 The beef stemmed from Commons lyrics on I Use to Love, which Ice Cube claimed was a subliminal diss to the west coast. Cue Westside Slaughterhouse, a vicious attack on Common, replete with the grimiest rap video ever made. Common locked himself in a studio with Pete Rock and proceeded to hand Westside Connection a lyrical beatdown on The Btch in Yoo. Eazy-E and NWAs management rubbed Ice Cube the wrong way and then had the nerve to dis the groups best lyricist on 100 Miles Runnin. Cube initiated a flame-throwing match with his former allies and came out unscathed. With No Vaseline, Cube single-handedly annihilated an entire group. A rare feat which has never been replicated since then. Prior to his feud with LL Cool J, Kool Moe had dismantled a modest Busy Bee in a freestyle contest. This time, KMDs adversary was Bigger and Deffer. Kool Moe alleged that Cool J stole his style and decided to teach never surrender halo 19-year old MC a lesson via the lyrical whiplash titled How Ya Like Me Now. LL never surrender halo back with the instant classic To Da Breakadawn. Kool Moe Dee wouldnt let LL have the final word, so he struck again with Lets Go. LL hit him even harder with Jack the Ripper, in which he ridiculed Moe Dees trademark Star Trek shades. By the time Moe Dee returned with Death Blow, Cool J had already hung the L on his neck and rocked his bells. As is often the case in hip-hop, this historic beef was mainly an offspring of bragging rights. It pitted one New York borough against another. KRS-One instigated the battle after claiming that MC Shans song The Juice wrongly credited Queensbridge, instead of South Bronx, as hip-hops birthplace. Consequently, BDP took Shan and co to the cleaners with the raw dis South Bronx. Shan struck back with Kill That Noise, thus setting up BDP for the classic The Bridge is Over, which delivered the final blow to Shans rap career. The 2Pac vs Biggie feud was unique in so many ways. Interestingly, Pacs tactic was the antithesis of Bigs approach. Not one to bite his tongue, Pac kept his insults as explicit and aggressive as possible. Who could forget Hit Em Ups opening lines Thats why I f-ked your wife, you fat muthaf-a? Biggie, on the other hand, stung Pac with subliminal disses, often delivered in a poised manner. This was arguably the most influential hip-hop feud ever. It affected entire regions, wrecked relationships, and changed lives forever. Before the Def Jam deal. Before the Power 105 lovefest. Before the colossal collaborations, Nas and Jay-Z were die-hard rivals. There are many theories on why Jay-Z and Nas suddenly found themselves embroiled in one of the most memorable feuds in music history. Was Nas jealous of Jay s commercial exploits? Did Jay dis Nas baby mama on Is That Your Chick? The two New York giants traded insults for years and came short of challenging each other to a lyrical duel on HBO.
