Best Rap Beefs


The Top Ten

1 Jay-Z vs. Nas

Jay-Z hands down. " All that thug rapping and gimmicks I will end it."

Nas won

Should I explain why?

Nas won with Ether, but that was still a damn good battle, The Takeover was still pretty good.

2 2Pac vs Notorious B.I.G.

This was a greatest Beef and you know it!

These two dudes died over it.. enough said...Nas JayZ? Nah... Not #1

I don’t know why Jay Z and Nas is over this.

This is what you call a beef

3 Bad Boy Records vs. Tupac

Pac for the win hit me up best diss song ever

Who in the hell said that biggie was “deeper” than Tupac! are you crazy? he may be more lyrical and had fancy wordplay, but as far as depth, passion, and content Tupac ran circles around biggie!

Tupac came at Bad Boy with Bombs First. Then they started coming at each other - xXLennyKingXx

I prefer Tupac because ha had more hits but Biggie won and was just deeper than Tupac, came straight from the heart and his flow was BOMB

4 Eazy-E vs Dr Dre

Dre is one of my favorites but eazy’s real mutherphuckin gs was wack good

Eazy killed that guy who

Seemed dead even to me

Dr. Dee was a coward. Eazy E exposed him and dre got owned. Eazy fo life!

5 50 Cent vs. Ja Rule

This was one of the most realest rap beefs ever, way beyond some Jay Z and Nas thing. 50 ended Ja's Career.

Ja Rule people shot 50 at his back. - xXLennyKingXx

The got shot 9 times and stabbed and he STILL walkin, 50 was way better than Rule and murdered his career cause it wont be long before you're dead, ha

50 pretty much ended Ja Rules career. Nobody hears about Ja Rule anymore. 50 won, enough said.

6 Eminem vs. Benzino

Eminem MURDERED that guy

Benzino thought that will beat Eminem in "Pull Ya Skirt Up," because he works for The Source. But Eminem knows what a good diss track has to go, so listen to two of his greatest tracks: "Nail in the Coffin" and "The Sauce." Benzino tried to gain more support, but happens to get kicked out if every record label there is, gets fired from The Source, and he is now a nobody. Eminem is the champion, and let's don't forget the other disses like "Bully" and "Go to Sleep."

Eminem completely destroyed Benzino, and Benzino never was heard from again. We all know who one this beef.

Em won

7 Ice Cube vs N.W.A

Lol. His dis was harder. As far as burying nwa. Was one of u around at the time? Cause it was a lot of back an forth. Js.

Cube ended the whole crew's existence.

What!... Cube murdered the whole NWA Crew and this is no.7... those idiots know nothing about Hip Hop.

These Idiots know nothing about Hip Hop...Ice Cube absolutely murdered NWA to the point they wanted him dead, but knew they couldn't touch him...this is the best rap beef of all time...because NWA tried to ruin Ice cube for leaving and not being stupid, but if you listen to "No Vaseline! He ruined them...

8 50 Cent vs. Lil Wayne

Louisianimal is a song on 50. - xXLennyKingXx

9 Ludacris vs. T.I.

Ludacris came at him. Then T.I. came with the song Do You Wanna Die - xXLennyKingXx

50 cent and ol slim shady hands down can destroy any one that wants it lamos

Luda was the best but T.I by no means is a bad rapper

10 G-Unit vs. The Game

Game killed it, between whole albums dissing gunit to a hilarious dvd... didn't do much to hurt gunit but it helped his career a lot

G-Unit Was killing it back then. It was a crazy beef.

I think it was kinda even

This was easily one of the best beefs!

The Contenders

11 50 Cent vs. Kanye West

From the College Dropout to 808's & Heartbreak and from Get Rich Or Die Tryin to Before I Self Destruct. Apperentally Kanye won. Thats why 50 ain't making no albums now because of his bet. - xXLennyKingXx

Damn never thought 50 would go ahead with the Yeez King but then it would be the best beef ever

12 LL Cool j vs Kool Moe Dee
13 Beanie Sigel vs. Jadakiss

Broad street bully diss jadakiss an it was over

2 of the best freestylers dissin each other!

14 Foxy Brown vs. Lil Kim

Guns involved

Kim went at Foxy first, and ten years later this beef is still alive.

15 Death Row Records vs. Ruthless Records

Death row 4 life

Ruthless records win because the have eazy

I say ruthless because then tupac would end up dissing snoop and dre. everyone in ruthless was cool with each other they united. Ruthless records family all day

Eazy e can top Dre day any day.

16 Eminem vs. Canibus

Come on now Em murdered

17 Eazy-E vs. Deathrow
18 LL Cool J vs. Canibus

AMAZING! This battle brought out the best.

One of hip hops greatest, since canibus was the new kid in the game and LL was like a 15 year rap veteran and canibus destroys LL street credibility with 2nd round knockout, and just to make it worse he managed to get mike tyson on his song to take down LL, although canibus never hit it big, this surely did hold LL's career back

19 Gucci Mane vs Young Jeezy

Greatest beef of all time, not up for debate.

Gucci killed Jeezy's friend in self defense. He did it because he had to not because he's cold.

Gucci killed Jeezy's friend which makes him a savage.

20 Kendrick Lamar vs Meek Mill

Meek is a good rapper, I'll give him that, but by starting beef with Kendrick and Drake, he basically ended his own career

Meek mill is a joke compare to Kendrick

Meek always had beefs all over but then here he blame Lamar for death of Lil Snuppe guess this one s for a good reason

21 Rick Ross vs. Young Jeezy
22 YMCMB vs. Shady 2.0

This would be great. Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, and Slim against a bunch of idiots.

If this ever happens, this would go as #1. This would be the best match-up ever. Clash of the titans

YMCMB can't even see em dissing them in their own music. Em already won without the battle even occuring. For example: No love & drop the world with Lil Wayne & Over by drake but renamed "Despicable" by Eminem. Eminem is one of the best lyrcist & the best subliminal rapper!

Yall Mad Cause Marshalls Better

23 Boogie Down Production vs Juice Crew
24 Eminem vs Ja Rule

Ja lost the minute he mentioned Hailie, it was down hill from there. He was losing anyway, 50 was spanking him and then he went and got Em involved and whole of D12, Gunit, Obie trice, Em took him to the cleaners

Listen to like toy soldiers by Eminem


25 Ludacris vs. Drake


26 Drake vs. Meek Mill

Should be higher. Impact of this beef is higher than a lot of these

This is top ten, Back to Back blew up just because he was roasting Meek

Why isn't this higher

27 Kendrick Lamar vs Drake

Even though Kendrick is considered as a noob to the game, I think he's way more better and lyrical than Drake.

Kendrick lamar said he was the king of new york om his control verse and drake responded on the song language

Drake Will Commit Suicide After This. - 12cc

Drake is a joke compare to Kendrick

28 Nicki Minaj vs. Lil Kim

Nicki Minaj completely murdered Kim on Romans Revenge, Did it on em, and many more, Kim shouldn't start what she can't finish!

Sicki Garbage wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for Kim breaking down doors for female rappers and birthing her. Poof..she gone!

Niki Manaj copied Lil Kim's style. Lil Kim took all the hate but she kept bouncin'. Lil Kim for life! Lil Kim won!

29 Eminem vs Everlast

Quitter and I remember are the best diss songs after Hit Em Up

30 D12 vs. Ja Rule

38 Dolla vs. 2 Pistols
39 Havoc vs. Prodigy

40 DJ Quik vs. MC Eiht

One of the longest beef in rap music and it's my favorite one. I know a lot of people say quik because of that one line but to me eight destroy him in definitely wish II and other track as well but I will say quik has good diss track as well
