2Pac & Ice Cube Disses & Beef, Bow Down Vs. Hit 'Em Up, Diddy & Keefe D

One of the most unknown issues in the hip-hop world, had been the static 2Pac had with Ice Cube. Pac Felt Ice Cube was biting His Style with West Coast Buzz But Had Miscommunication. There was friction before 2Pac signed to Death Row due to Ice Cube sabotaging 2Pac's song Dear Mama & Pac taking Ice Cube's role for Poetic Justice. After his release from prison, Makaveli left New York and formed a business partnership with Suge Knight and his friends at Death Row. 2Pac was ready to take aim at Common from a lyrical perspective during Ice Cube’s beef with the Chicago rapper in the mid 1990s, according to Outlawz member Napoleon.

“I remember when the East Coast-West Coast thing was heating up, I think Common and Cube was going through their beef, like they were dissing each other,” Napoleon said. “I remember ‘Pac was like, ‘See, if I was cool with Cube right now, I’d be going after Common for him, but now I’m staying out of it.'”

He continued: “‘Pac had a lot of love for Cube. I never heard him say anything negative about him. I think at one particular time they were closer, and maybe they just went their separate ways. But that’s the only thing I heard him say about Cube, but he definitely respected Cube.”

Ice Cube dissed Common on the 1995 Mack 10 track “Westside Slaughterhouse” in response to his classic ode to Hip Hop, “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” which he felt was a slight against West Coast rappers and their growing dominance in the industry.

Out of 2pac’s own words, he felt Ice Cube was clout chasing the west coast aggressive content, with telling out of towners to bow down. This was evident, when it was brought to our attention that he planned to unleash multiple diss tracks at Cube after making peace with Nas and others in the five boroughs. Unfortunately, it may have seemed that way and 2pac was completely correct; but Ice Cube was quietly repping the west lifestyle on the forefront after completing a slew of Hollywood films.

Cube spoke about a list of the “most unforgettable diss tracks in Hip Hop history”, in which Tupac’s “Hit ‘Em Up” took the pole position and his epic “No Vaseline” track aimed at N.W.A. was placed at a modest third.
