Shots Fired: Kurupt's Top 5 Diss Songs That Made Him Say "Damn!"

With Game and Shyne (and Meek Mill and Cassidy) taking shots at each other on wax lately, it’s clear that Hip-Hop is once again returning to its tried and true tradition of the diss record. When AllHipHop.com spoke with the West Coast OG Kurupt recently, he revealed the disses from Hip-Hop history that made him cringe – but in a good way.

And that’s really saying something, considering he’s spit on some noteworthy battle records of his own, such as his own “Callin’ Out Names”, where he took shots at many including DMX (“Only X I know is Xzibit or RBX”)”, and Tha Dogg Pound’s “New York, New York”.

The latter and its video were so effective that Jay-Z even commented on its impact years later on “Money, Cash, H**s” (“It’s like New York’s been soft ever since Snoop came through and crushed the buildings”).

Oh, yes. Hip-Hop shots have been fired. Here is Kurupt’s Top 5 Diss Songs That Made Him Say “Damn!”

5. There’s so many good records. “No Vaseline” was one of them that made history [by] Ice Cube.

4. and 3. You’ve got “Ether” [by] Nas. You’ve got the record Jay-Z made (“Takeover”). Both of those.

2. I’ve got to say “The Bridge is Over” [by Boogie Down Productions]. That song was so good. I didn’t even realize it was a diss record. That motherf*cker was so bangin’.  Then when they broke down what it meant, I was like, “Damn!” It sounds so good…you don’t even hear the disrespect.

1.What else is there? “To Da Break of Dawn” [by] LL. That was pretty vicious. I was like, “I hope Ice-T don’t catch him.” Ice-T’s a real one. You hear these records, and some things just make you say, “Damn!” And “To Da Break of Dawn” was definitely one of those records.

    “Hit em up” was the best diss song of all time. “you claim to be a playa, but i f’d yo wife”…. Tupac went straight for the jugular in that song!

  • CaliTransplant

    Best diss song ever for me was DJ Quik’s Dollas & Sense. Hands down. If you followed the West Coast back in the day, you knew him and MC Eiht had beef. Quik was considered like a party MC and Eiht was set-trippin hard. But Quik clowned, Ja Ruling him with one song. It was a wrap! Best diss EVER…Then No Vaseline, then Hit Em Up…

    • HipHopStalker

      Dollas and sense was vicious. Quik killed it just with one line. E.i.h.t now should I countiue,nigga you left out the G cause the G ain’t in you.

      • StackzScrilla

        1234567910, Eight you can’t win. That’s that Shyt yo!

      • CaliTransplant

        It was a WRAP… Turn off the lights the party’s over…lol hardest shit ever

    • Stack309

      Good call on Dollas & Sense but I think No Vaseline is the best because it broke up the whole group, would’ve destroyed Ruthless if not for Bone Thugs & Harmony

      • CaliTransplant

        Thanks, yo. No Vaseline was HARD! I remember how hard it was cause Cube had stayed quiet about the all the shots they took at him for so long. And I must’ve played it 1000 times. But, the only reason I have Quik over Cube was because that one song literally destroyed Eiht’s career. Even 50, as hard as he went at JA, took a barrage of songs. And JA still had Clapback, PAC at Big, TI at Flip, KRS at Juice Crew, Nas at Jay & Rocafella. It took a gang of songs to clown. Nobody got done like Eiht did by Quik! Peace.

  • J-SMOOTH

    think Kurupts own Callin out Names is classic as well.
