    Remeber what Pap did to Uncle Murder?

    That last verse was ridiculous…like, seriously…

    ^Are you talking on the street level or lyrical/music level?

    Pap destroyed pap on wax.

    But in the streets Pap lost.

    Uncle Murda and goons beat the shit out of Pap’s best friend. Stomped him in the middle of the street.

    and Pap’s man got his face cut. Pap ran away like a bitch.

    on the street level…Uncle Murda defeated Papoose…

    than Pap try to act like he put a hit out on Uncle Murda and got him shot in the head..

    lyrically:
    Pap > uncle murda

    street wise:

    Uncle Murda > Pap

    Uncle Murda won the beef. No contest. Pap is a library kid that went to school to better himself.

    Uncle Murda was on the block, shooting at cops and selling drugs and murdering other people.

    D.O.C has said on numerous occasions that he only coached Snoop he never outright penned for him.

    Snoop didn’t start actually using a pool of writers until about 3 albums ago.

    The Chronic was however a collaborative effort of a lot of people who’re on the album but how that could affect it’s classic status is beyond me. The Chronic changed the game.

    beans couldn’t see banks on his worst day. Banks is more lyrical and better punchlines.

    Rap/Hip-Hop is about being creative and clever…you have to spit the best punchlines and be very lyrical.

    Banks is punchline king and lyrical.
