Rap is competitive. Sometimes rappers compete for market share, other times they compete directly on the record. Here are eight of the hardest diss tracks ever recorded:
Kick in the Door, Biggie vs. Nas, Jeru, Ghostface and Raekwon
This track boasts one of the hardest hooks of any diss song ever recorded. “Kick in the door wavin’ the four four, all ya heard was poppa don’t hurt me no more.”
Hit’em Up, Tupac vs. Biggie and Puff Daddy
Few diss tracks have been this aggressive. Some of the disses are a little childish, like Tupac claiming to have slept with Biggie’s girlfriend, but overall, the song comes off strong and fierce.
Have a Nice Day, Roxanne Shante vs. Boogie Down Productions
At 13 or 14 years old, Roxanne Shante from the Roxanne war took on the whole of Boogie Down Productions and came out with one of the hardest tracks of the era.
