Diddy Diss to LOX Surfaces on the ‘Net
The track, which you can check out here, was produced by a then relatively unknown producer named Kanye West, with lyrics penned by a pre-incarcerated Shyne, over a publishing beef which has since been extinguished.
Diddy begins with a special dedication, during which he intones “For my next number I’d like to dedicate this to my n—-, the Notorious B.I.G., because if he was here, this is how he would want me to come.” Dids then goes in against Yonkers’ finest, saying ‘Yall motherf—–s don’t want to see me fly/You killed Big, yall n—– see me cry/That aint enough/Yall wanna see me die?”
Although the diss was never officially released, a verse appeared on a Clinton Sparks track, and the beat was later used by Talib Kweli on ‘Guerilla Monsoon Rap,’ which featured Pharoahe Monch and Black Thought.
Hiring a ghost writer for a diss track is highly suspect. Even so, the track is worth hearing for the “F— you Puffy” chorus, which is sung by a group of kids.
