Going in on MC Eiht here.
At least I think.
All I see is a blue screen here at work where the evil YouTube is not authorized, but I’m assuming this is DJ Quik.
GOOD NITE! THANK YOU SLAM! This cut if off tha 1995 release Safe & Sound CD….We was bumpin this from begining to end back then…”Diggin U Out”, “Somethin 4 tha Mood”, “Summer Breeze” and check out Quik’s Groove III and ya’ll can really hear the musical talents of Mr. David Blake. Stand up TREE TOP!
it was also on the MURDER WAS THE CASE soundtrack..and that song has the best diss ever:
“Tell me why you act so scary
Givin your set a bad name wit your misspelled name
E-I-H-T, now should I continue
Yeah you left out the G cause the G ain’t in you”
OUCH!! Quik is a musical genius..great beats
lets have Jadakiss, Lupe, or Bad meets Evil.
@GP23 – oh man, I been bumpin’ Bad Meets Evil’s “Fast Lane” almost everyday for like the last month.
LOL I can’t help myself, they both go off on that track, especially Royce.
“My whole goal as a poet’s to be relaxed in orbit
At war with a bottle, this Captain Morgan attacks my organs
My slow flow is euphoric, it’s like I rap endorphins
I made a pact with the Devil that says ‘I’ll let you take me
You let me take this shovel, dig up the corpse, Jack Kevorkian’
Go ‘back and forth in more beef that you can pack a fork in…”
quik was going at everyone on this whole album – classic
@Enigmatic I’m living in the ATL an that track gets no respect on the radio. They can’t play enough Wayne or Drake or wack a** Future or 2 Chains, but the won’t play Fast Lane.
Radio plays what most people wanna hear.
And most people prefer to hear Drake singing and Wayne doing whatever the hell he does over some dope lyrical rapping.
Makes no sense to me.
@Enigmatic… word! Royce is solid on the mic, and his freestyle on that cypher the other day was ill. Him and Em go together like eggs and bacon… just real nice. And the radio thing.. yeah I know, people these days prefer a catchy beat over quality lyrics. Smh.
@Enig and GP23 everyone knows that the radio is a popularity contest these days. I don’t even listen to it I just get my favorite artists albums or mixtapes because now it’s all commercial. The cyphers that were on the other day was hip hop at it’s finest.
I love how Em clowned Nicki Minaj, and to an extent other new rappers, for overusing that whole line/dramatic pause/punch-line style that just sounds lazy to me.
“Wait no, stop me before I get on a roll…Danish!”
Too bad the rest of the Bad Meets Evil album dissapointed, in my opinion.
I was listening to this as a teenager when it first came out, but now as an adult, I dunno if my taste in music changed, or if I just “grew-up”, but, well frankly, kinda sounds like crap to me now (along with Spice1, C-bo, etc. etc.) Still keep the likes of Wu, Redman, the Roots, tha Liks, Outkast, etc. etc. on my Ipod.
We all know 2pac’s- Hit em’ up, was (is) great.. But another good rivalry track is Westside Connection’s- King of the hill.. @ Cypress Hill.. “Comin’ with a voice high pitched/ the B in B-Real must stand for B!t(h!! haha..
“E-I-H-T now should I continue? Yeah you left out the G, cause the G aint in you”
I thought B Real smoked both Cube and Mack 10.
Really the only beef Cube ever won was against NWA, the other times he got worked.
The ILLEST track off of Murder was a Case iz 21 Jump Street by Snoop and Tray Dee. “Hi my name is Todd and uhh I live by the Eastside but not really in the Eastside.”
I liked the Nate Dogg song the most out of that album.
“One More Day”
What? Westside Connection destroyed Cypress Hill. Enigmatic you smoking that ooh-wee
@Kevin No, Cypress Hill beat Mack and Cube. The guy they got on Ice Cube Killa that sounded like Cube was funny. And Real smoked Mack 10 on that song in particular.
Yeah, I still say B-Real (and I say B-Real cause Sen Dog wasn’t around at the time, and Muggs ain’t a rapper) destroyed Mack and Cube.
I mean, B-Real was aight on “No Rest for the Wicked”.
Cube did his thing on “King of the Hill” (Mack 10 was wack, I thought), but B-Real ethered them both on “Ice Cube Killa”.
Plus, Cypress Hill won the beef in the streets by far.
A member of Cypress Hill’s crew whooped Cube’s a** and took his Westside Connection chain.
Then Sen Dog ran into Cube at a party and since he wasn’t around when the beef was cooking he went at Cube, who wanted no part of Sen Dog that night.
