Take it out on the mic
It’s no secret that in the rap game sometimes things can get heated. These rap artists can have disagreements, and they take it to heart which can end in a battle of bars in the form of a diss track aimed at whoever they were upset with.
In recent memory, Drake and Meek Mill had a duel on the mic when Meek came out saying that Drake didn’t even write his own songs. By rappers dropping diss tracks it ends up being a way to avoid violence and it’s also something that the fans will enjoy. In no order, here are 15 of the best diss tracks ever released.
“Hit Em Up” by Tupac
Tupac was known to go at multiple rappers in his diss tracks. In “Hit em Up” he targets Mobb Deep, Puffy, Junior M.A.F.I.A., Lil Kim, The Notorious B.I.G. and Chino XL. In the track he even goes as far to say “That’s why I f***ed your b***h, you fat motherf****r”, taking serious shots at Biggie.
“The B**ch in Yoo” by Common
Common didn’t take lightly when Ice Cube took shots at him, so he responded with a diss track aimed just at Ice Cube. Common got pretty bold with it saying “Hypocrite, I’m filling out your death certificate.”
“Takeover” by Jay Z
Taking shots at rappers Nas and Prodigy, Jay Z took to the recording room taking shots both the rappers. Nas and Jay had a well known rivalry for years, and Jay Z definitely expresses how he feels towards him in this track.
