Hip Hop's Greatest Diss Tracks (Crooklyns Classic Mix Vol.1 & 2)

LL Cool J vs. Kool Moe Dee - Kool Moe Dee claimed that LL Cool J stole his style, starting a long-running feud between them. Moe Dee approached LL and talked to him, and LL either brushed him off, or went back to his old ways after the talk. There also arose rumors that Moe Dee felt that LL was imitating his rhyme style. Kool Moe Dee took the first shots with "How Ya Like Me Now," ...LL responded with the energetic "Jack the Ripper." In the song LL playfully taunts Kool Moe Dee by repeatedly asking the rhetorical question "How you like me now?" He then precedes to call Kool Moe Dee a "washed up rapper" and an "old school sucker punk."

Boogie Down Productions vs. The Juice Crew - The feud began with Marley Marl & MC Shan's track "The Bridge" in late 1985, in which they sung the praises of hip hop's early years in Queensbridge. The dispute was over MC Shan's line "You love to hear the story again and again of how it all got started way back then". South Bronx-based KRS-One believed that MC Shan was implying that Queensbridge was where hip hop "all got started". Although proved later to not be the case, KRS-One (BDP) would misinterpret the line and go on to record the and release the track "South Bronx" starting the rivalry. It was effectively identical in terms of content to Shan and Marl's track except singing the praises of South Bronx rather than Queensbridge, and made the argument for it being the true home and birthplace of hip hop. The Juice Crew soon responded with the track "Kill The Noise" which took various shots at KRS-One and mocked his taking offense in the first place: "Yo Shan, I didn't hear you say hip hop started in the Bridge on your record." "I didn't. They wanted to get on the bandwagon." KRS's main response was the Jamaican-influenced "The Bridge Is Over"

LL Cool J vs. Canibus - The battle began when LL brought in Canibus, Method Man, DMX and Redman for the Phenomenon song "4,3,2,1" in 1997. Canibus contributed a verse, which included the line "L, is that a mic on your arm? Let me borrow that" (referring to the tattoo of a microphone LL did indeed have on his arm). LL wrote a response into his own verse, claiming he felt disrespected: "The symbol on my arm is off limits to challengers...You don't wanna borrow that, you wanna idolize", creating a small battle within the song. Before the song was released, Cool J asked Canibus to change the line. Canibus claims that LL also promised to remove his lines as well. LL denies this, claiming that he told Canibus that no one would know who he was talking about if Canibus' verse was changed.

Nas vs. Jay-Z - Simply started because Jay was hittin skins with Nas's baby's momma!!

Westside Connection vs. Cypress Hill - The feud started when B Real invited Ice Cube for a look at a hook for their new album. Soon after Cube recorded the song Friday which had the hook Throw Your Neighbourhood In The Air which was similar to Cypress Hills Throw Your Set In The Air. Feeling dissed they recorded the track No Rest For The Wicked. In response Cube responded with Cross Em Out And Put A K and King Of The Hill.

DMX vs. Kurupt - This feud stems from DMX sleeping with Kurupt's then girlfriend Foxy Brown

DMX vs. Ja Rule - DMX claimed his one-time ally Ja Rule had copied his rap style, and had gotten rich as a result. Ja Rule responded by bringing up DMX's drug abuse and questioning his sexuality. DMX jumped on a bandwagon when Shady Records artist were feuding with Ja Rule, releasing a few diss tracks on Cradle 2 The Grave Soundtrack. One track Go To Sleep features Shady Records artists Eminem and Obie Trice. The beef ended with Irv Gotti speaking with both artists.

I have to agree with the post that questioned why "Nail In The Coffin" and "The Sauce" aren't here, but "Go To Sleep" is. Oh well.
Anyway, great mix you got here, especially the early stuff; gotta let people know that hip hop beef isn't a recent trend.
Looking for feedback for my hip hop blog,
