Like Doug E. Fresh said "I tell you now, you ain't nuthin"

Long before Ice Cube set the stage for modern diss tracks with “No Vaseline”, KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions laid the foundation for a diss track released on an actual album. Taking their beef with MC Shan and the Juice Crew further than dissing them live on stage or in a freestyle battle, BDP littered their initial offering and rap music classic “Criminal Minded” with swipes at the Juice Crew. They took it a step further with “The Bridge is Over”. Perhaps my all time favorite rap song and my favorite beat, KRS-One carves up MC Shan, Marly Marl and the rest of the Juice Crew with lyrical precision. Sure there were other battles going on in rap music like Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J, but there tracks back and forth while powerful in their own right just went on and on. KRS came out in no more than 3 minutes and some seconds and dropped the hammer on the Juice Crew. 2 quick verses and one big ass beatdown. I might be partial to KRS-One, but this is how it should be done.

Di-di di-da, di di-di, dida di-day, aiy!
All you sucka MC, won't you please come out to play, cause
Here's an example of KRS-One, bo!
Here's an example of KRS-One
They wish to battle BDP, but they cannot
They must be on the dick of who? DJ Scott LaRock
Cause, we don't complain nor do we play the game of favors
Boogie Down Productions comes in three different flavors
Pick any dick for the flavor that you savor
Mr. Magic might wish to come and try to save ya
But instead of helpin ya out he wants the same thing I gave ya
I finally figured it out, Magic mouth is used for suckin
Roxanne Shante is only good for steady fuckin
MC Shan and Marley Marl is really only bluffin
Like Doug E. Fresh said "I tell you now, you ain't nuthin"
Compared to Red Alert on KISS and Boogie Down Productions
So easy now man, I me say easy now mon
To KRS-One you know dem can't understand
Me movin over there and then me movin over here
This name of this routine is called Live At Union Square
Square, square, square, ooooooooooooooooooooooo
What's the matter with your MC, Marley Marl?
Don't know you know that he's out of touch
What's the matter with your DJ, MC Shan?
On the wheels of steel Marlon sucks
You'd better change what comes out your speaker
You're better off talkin bout your wack Puma sneaker
Cause Bronx created hip-hop, Queens will only get dropped
You're still tellin lies to me
Everybody's talkin bout the Juice Crew funny
But you're still tellin lies to me

Post some new shit Don.

There's a lot of good rap lyrics out there.
Sorry Todd. My bad homie. Don't get Froggy. Been working overtime and shit. I usually do a lot of my stuff at work where I get P-A-I-D to do it but I've been busy. Yo, no reefer no pizza.
