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.
