The Top Ten

Possibly the biggest and hardest diss track to ever shock the Hip-Hop world but even more so shocked N.W.A. This was Ice Cube's 1991 diss track towards the group after he was the first to leave a couple years prior. "I never have dinner with the president!"

2 Ether - Nas Ether - Nas Cover Art

One of the biggest diss tracks in history, Nas gave unleashed all his energy into his diss towards Jay-Z. This was the response to Jay's 'Takeover' towards Nas, (and Mobb Deep).
He and Jay may have collabed five or so times together but the beef will always part of their history. This is known as one of the hardest hitting disses in Hip-Hop history.

3 Second Round K.O. - Canibus Second Round K.O. - Canibus Cover Art

Can-I-Bus's beastly iconic diss that officially kicked off his beef with LL Cool J. The song was so hard that even Mike Tyson made a cameo!

4 Takeover - JAY-Z Takeover - JAY-Z Cover Art

Hov's unforgettable raw 2001 attack on Nas and Mobb Deep. The diss that started the one of, if not the biggest and most relevant beef in the genre's history.

5 Lost Ones - Lauryn Hill Lost Ones - Lauryn Hill Cover Art

From Hill's legendary first and only solo album, 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill', comes her unorthodox diss towards her former partner and 'Fugees' group mate, Wyclef Jean.

The West Coast giants, N.W.A.'s hit to their recently departed member, Ice Cube, who left the group to experiment with his solo career. The song is amazing and contains one of MC Ren's most impressive performances in terms of flow and delivery. The song had two verses by Ren and both of the remaining rappers, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, each had two verses and also killed it. Cube responded the following year with 'No Vaseline'.
