Also: my pal/coworker Kalon was talking to me today about how he thinks 'Hit Em Up
' is a really good dis song. I, however, think Tupac is the most overrated figure in the history of rap music. So here are a few dis songs that I think are better (YouTube and SendSpace links, I dunno how long they'll last):Canibus - 2nd Round Knockout
(amateur YouTube slideshow video)Common - The Bitch In You
(amateur YouTube slideshow video)Jay-Z - Takeover
(mix from Jay/Nas beef mixtape, with extended live intro and cutting between live (MTV Unplugged, w/the Roots) and vinyl versions)Nas - Ether
(great amateur YouTube video)Everlast - Whitey's Revenge
(mp3 link)Evidence - Search 4 Bobby Fisher
(mp3 link--yeah, they're both Eminem disses, and no, I don't think Em's dis songs are that great--not even close to his best work)
This is, of course, the tip of the iceberg. I've left out Shan/KRS, UTFO/Shante, LL/Moe Dee, Cube/NWA, Dre/Eazy, El-P/Sole and quite a few others (though a lot of the others didn't produce any good songs).
