Gucci a coward?
You mean like Drop A Gem on Em?
And while we're at it. Let's also pretend that "Drop A Gem On Em" is just as blatant as "The Truth"
But it's not obvious tho. That's the truth and that's what we've been trying to say
I don't know nothing about that dude
The most ratchet bytch I ever met in my life tried to put me on to him
and I just totally blacked him out after that
I hear ya.
Biggie and Mobb both did a lot of dissing without saying names. Biggie had Long Kiss Goodnight, and Kick in the Door.
Mobb had an ton of Jay Z disses and didn't say his name.
People already mentioned some of LL disses
Sometimes subliminal dissing can be hot. But to compare records like "Drop A Gem On Em" to "Ether" is absurd.
They're cool little footnotes on tracks if you're really interested in that particular Artists/Group if you're doing some digging. but to put Subliminal Records that are hardly noticeable up there in the discussion of Classic Hip Hop Battle Records isn't where it's at
I'll give Biggie "Long Kiss Goodnight" as a known diss song as it was kind of understandable that it was about 'Pac.
But with "Kick In The Door", I didn't know it was about Nas until years later, I always thought it was about 'Pac.
See, thats the problem; it leaves it up to the person's interpretation, its too ambiguous.
No one can confuse Kurupt dissing DMX, Nas, etc on "Calling Out Names" (named EXACTLY as a rapper should do if there is beef).
That's a fundamental difference between "Drop A Gem..." and "Hit 'Em Up", "No Vaseline", "Dollaz & Sense", etc; the rapper getting dissed HAS to come back with something just as vicious or they lose.
And 'Pac rode on them HARD and they didn't have the heart to say his name.
In 96 it was very obvious.
He made a diss record about Jeezy, but didn't say his name in the record. You'd agree that's cowardly right?
Would you agree this applies to the Truth?
This was a great diss track on a CLASSIC album.
Mobb Deep talked about fukkin up Pac. Gucci made a video giving out factual AND public details about the situation.
Two different approaches if you wanna be technical or do da Strawman
I don't see how that matters. Anyone that would care knew exactly who it was about especially Pac.
