The Top Ten Greatest Hip Hop Beefs

The most recognized, and followed Hip Hop rivalries.

The Top Ten

1 Nas vs Jay-Z

Anyone saying that Nas sucks is clearly stupid. Nas is indefinitely one of the greatest rappers of all time. Jay-Z of course is also and I have much respect for him. Takeover was a great song but honestly Ether just obliterated Jay-Z. He legit put Jay-Z in his place. Jay-Z tried to come back with Supa Ugly but no one really listened or remembered that track because Ether was so hardcore. When the poll was issued asking who won the feud Nas got 52% of the votes while Jay-Z got 48%. Great feud though and boosted both their careers.

classic beef but the winner is obviously nas his lyrics crushed jay-z on ether
takeover just had better production - 2pacisalive09

Nas and Jay-Z was more of a battle and it lasted longer than Pac and Biggie. Ether and Takeover - robertoantonioortuso

Nas won but Jay is a better rapper - venomouskillingmachine

2 Tupac vs The Notorious B.I.G

tupac won with aggressive verses Biggie wanst that agressive and tupac destroyed him with hit em up - torontoraps5

Who shot ya was so much better than hit em up

"Hit 'Em Up" is the most "notorious" rap diss in the history of rap music.

Who won?

4 Kanye West vs 50 Cent

50 is a classic g-unit solder who came up by hisself. Kanye had help by Jay-Z and possibly the devil. I like the old Kanye better.

Yup Kanye was obviously a better rapper and he sound way better than 50 also

Sales don't lie, Kanye West sold more thand 50 and made a much better album.

5 Eminem vs Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Obviously em won and not only did he won but he won with one hell of a song! After Mariah Carey released "obsessed"(about eminem) em released the warning which is just a kick ass song which won him the beeg

Obsessed was such a mediocre diss track compared to The Warning.

6 Eminem vs Insane Clown Posse

Eminem is way better than both those pussies

Just because they white doesn't mean they rivals and Eminem

They kinda tied, both being popular.

7 Rick Ross vs 50 Cent

In this beef 50 cent destroyed rick ross, 50 cent is a monster. 50 had beef with ja, game, buck, jay z and many more. And he had destroyed many of artists careers. Fifty ate rick ross..

50 would have destroyed him... Ross won just because of one mistake by 50. 50 made a fool out of himself and paid for it. If 50 wasn't dumb enough to release that sex tape, he'd be in a completely different situation, and he wouldn't be bankrupt.

New dre 50 em and kendrick

8 T.I. vs Lil Flip

T I obviously. Flip sucks. I hate him.

12 years later and I fucc with both rappers but let's be 100 here Flip murdered T.I.P

9 The Game vs 50 Cent

300 bars and runnin

50 cent sold 10 mill in 2003, game sold 5 mill in 2005, 2006.
Numbers don't really count in my opinion but these 2 were selling millions and has the industry shook

I'll give this one my vote because id say it deserves to be higher. Both were good rappers, but I was cheering for the Game!

His names the game for 1 reason he gots game and keepin it 100 is wats he does

10 Eazy-E vs Dr.Dre

I would not pick a winner for this since Eazy-E died and Dr. Dre forgave him and misses having his friend Eazy-E around so I would out of respect for both not take a side and just say these are both 2 of my favorite rappers and the diss tracks they made too each other were great when considering the feelings they had towards each other at the time and I'm glad they made up shortly before Eazy's death.

These two were in nwa. I have no idea why this beef happened. - JDagger500

Two were once friends but then became enemy's because dre wanted more cash

I don't care if e is dead. I still don't like him. Dre is better

The Contenders

11 50 Cent vs Ja Rule

50 crushed Ja and Ja even admitted he lost to MTV

If these two would have a battle 50 cent hands down Ja rule is an a hole and he can't rap. - JDagger500

I bet if this battle was to happen in present day, 50 Cent wont win. At that time he got a lot of support in bringing down Ja Rule from Dre, Eminem, Busta Rhymes.

12 Frank Ocean vs Chris Brown
13 Tyga vs Drake

Didn't Miley Cyrus diss both Drake AND Tyga, effectively ending their sorry, worthless careers?

Tyga is the best rapper ever!

Who are these two clowns?

Drake - venomouskillingmachine

14 Canibus vs Eminem

Eminem beat Canibus. He verbally shut down his career. He ended any chance Canibus had on blowing up.

That is BS you idiot, Eminem would destroy any rapper today, only tupac would stand a chance against him, but he's dead.

Canibus destroyed Eminem to pieces lyrically

15 Young Jeezy vs Gucci Mane

Jeezy, say no more.

16 N.W.A. vs Ice Cube

Ice Cube KILLED N.W.A. in "no vaseline". and THIS rap was the best dis I have every heard. was better the tupac's "Hit um up"

Ice Cube is absoluetely the winner no doubt No Vaseline was infinity times better than any of N.W.A.'s disses towards him and in my view No Vaseline is the best Hip Hop diss song in the history of Hip Hop!

17 Gillie Da Kidd vs Lil Wayne
18 Eminem vs Benzino

Big credit goes to Eminem. He put a big scar on The Source and brought the whole thing down because of Benzino's "below the belt" moves to attack Em.

Slim crushed and KILLED Ben and Ben lost his job
Don't mess with Eminem EVER

19 Kanye West vs Ray J
20 Eminem vs Tupac

Such a beef did not even happen and if it did it would have been legendary

This never happened you idiots, this is the dumbest website ever invented. Tupac was shot in '96, for anyone out there who is actually smart.

You idiots 2Pac and Eminem would actually make good friends and Eminem likes 2Pac as 2Pac influenced em to rap

The hell? Eminem was an underground wardog while Tupac was a legend around '96. Eminem idolized the legend and admitted to him being far better than him. But if such a beef happened, I think it would be Pac by an inch because disregarding what feel for both of them, it is noticeable that Eminem is a heavily built battle rapper who dominates the art of dissing and has extreme and intriquite rhyme schemes but Pac holds a bigger legacy than Eminem and has significantly smoother flow. He also showed extreme diss stregth when he went toe to toe with Biggie himself. You could also tske account Pac's death at 25. Eminem is currently 44 as of now which means he is now a "veteran" in the game and his experiences had toughen him up overtime. If Pac reached 40, he would be unstoppable but very few can create a match.
This is all an opinion stated through gathered facts. I have a lot of respect for both sides.
