"You wanna bumble with the Bee, huh?"
J.J. Fad – “Now Really” (1988)
Of course, the trio wasn’t going to let the duo tear them down.
“On the back of your glossy, I’ll leave my signature / ’Cause just face it / Nobody wants a picture of you hanging anywhere that they may go / ‘Cause I seen a better picture on a can of Alpo.”
Not dog food!
Antoinette – “Lights Out, Party” (1989)
MC Lyte held her own as Brooklyn’s heavy-spitter, but Antoinette, the round-the-way girl from the Bronx, wasn’t scared to challenge Lyte. She sent the first shot with her cocky 1987 track “I Got An Attitude.” Lyte bit back with “10% Diss.” That’s when Antoinette came hard with a verbal assassination on her 1989’s “Lights Out, Party.”
“I stretch my arm like elastic and finally reach the h*e / Antoinette’s dope, and now I’m a teach you, so / Ain’t nobody chillin, your whole clan’s wack / And damn, you cram to understand that…you may be Lyte, but you ain’t lovely.”
MC Lyte – “Shut the Eff Up! (H*e)” (1989)
Shortly after, MC Lyte rose to the occasion and showed Antoinette who the real hot spitter was.
“You ain’t really down, you wig wearing clown / Borrowing money to buy an outfit / Not even good enough for a Sunday picnic / I ask you: do you know who you’re f**kin’ with?”
Apparently not! Whew!
