Like the beefing it’s self this list could create some big controversy. From old to new, important to sniping, everything makes my list. Here is the list:
The Bridge is Over- Boogie Down Productions: The original, the start of hip-hop beefs, The Bridge is Over was the major stunner in the first NY beef and the ORIGINAL beef; South Bronx vs. Queensbridge.
2. Ether- Nas: A major song in the second NY beef not just for the beef with Jay-Z, but really made other MCs not want to get at Nas. Jim Jones must have not gotten the message.
3. Takeover- Jay-Z: As much as I don’t like the victims, The Takeover really hurt Nas and Mobb Deep. Really it wasn’t as much against them as it was Jay proclaiming himself “King of New York.”
4. Real Muthaphuckkin’ G’s- Eazy-E: Although the Eazy-E fallout of NWA was sad, Eazy goes hard at Dr. Dre. This song is a classic and classic Eazy-E deserves mention on any list.
5. Who Shot Ya?- The Notorious B.I.G.: Not really a direct diss but really erie and ear-catching. Instead of direct name-calling, Biggie subliminally shoots at Tupac which make it especially good.
6. Hit em’ Up- Tupac: As much as I hate Tupac, hate the song, like Biggie, and love Mobb Deep, Hit em’ Up was probably Tupac’s best shot in the Biggie vs. Tupac feud.
7. Fuck Compton- Tim Dog: Arguably the song that started the whole East Coast, West Coast feud and one of the reasons East Coast comes before West Coast when you say it!!!
8. Destroy and Rebuild- Nas: Nas vs. Queensbridge. Takes shots at Nature, Prodigy, and Cormega plus anyone born there. The most direct feuds I have ever seen started in one song!
9. Thun N Kicko- Cormega and Prodigy: Not as known as the above mentioned but just listen to it. Tons of memorable lines taking shots at Nas and it is not often Nas gets Merked; This song does just that.
10. Supa Ugly- Jay-Z: Another great shot at Nas and really downplays Nas’ credentials to be “King of New York.”
