    @ Ease

    His debut dropped in 92 but if you’re referring to Resurrection which dropped in 94 then cool. But i still maintain that it’s a diss. You can’t say my man retired I’m take over, the half time niggas breaks over….then the preceding line is talking about the same year half time dropped…i don’t know bro…It ain’t hard to tell.

    Cold

    How is that a reach? How more of clear of a diss can it be without it actually saying Nas’ name?

    would you kindly weigh in here, are these bars not a subliminal diss towards Nas from Common:

    It ain’t 94′ yo we can’t go back
    The game need a makeover
    My man retired, I’ma takeover
    Tell these halftime niggaz break’s over

    I’ve never heard common so much as mention Hovs name in an interview, song or nothing.

    Always heard him shouting Nas out.

    Common and Jay have been cool for years. This is also when Jay shouted out Common on the BP2, which was a year before Be.

    And that’s the thing, he’s def cool with Jay, but he shouts Nas out on the regular. He even wrote the foreward in Born To Use Mics (the Illmatic book).

  17. cOLD Says:

    yea dblock in the context its written in, it can clearly be seen as a diss. But Common has been on record since early saluting Nas. When you think of it like that, you kinda lean to clever word play like Ennals said.

  18. b-ease Says:

    Speaking of Lisa Raye, I saw that Black Men’s issue with her on the cover last week. She might be the baddest 45 year old EVER. Like, I’m not even sure if Halle’s fucking with her.

    Sounds like a diss to me.

    Common Vs. Nas would be tremendous.

  25. b-ease Says:

    Quiet as kept, Black Thought was scared to diss Nas. Esco called them niggas porch monkeys. Granted BT did say, “he always talking about going to Africa, but I was there last week”, which was pretty potent ether, but he aint wanna get in that booth tho.

  26. cOLD Says:

    one of the first posts I did on this site was about that line. I don’t think it was a diss, but it wouldn’t surprise me because who hasn’t aired out that chump Gnozir.

  30. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    (yeah, for your nation…
    For your nation…)
    Verse one:
    A bitch nigga wit an attitude named cube
    Step to com wit a feud
    Now what the fuck I look like dissing a whole coast
    You ain’t made shit dope since amerikkka’s most
    Wanted to cease from the midwest to the east
    On the dick of the east for your 1st release
    Your lease is up at the crib, house niggaz get evicted
    And videos wit white boys talking you get wicked
    Natural born killa, nigga you natural born god
    Look, read listen, got the nerve to say you rob
    Hyprocrite, I’m filling out your death certificate
    Slanging bean pies and st ide’s in the same sentence
    Shoulda repented, on the 16th of october
    Get some beats besides george clinton to rock over
    Rap career is over, better off acting
    What trouble I see, you’re managing wc and wack 10
    You backed in to a four corner hustla
    Lying on your dick, said you was fuckin her
    Use higher learning, don’t take my words out of text
    Went from gangsta to islam to the dick of das efx
    It’ll take the nation of millions to hold me back
    From giving you mouth shots or hit wit the pipe ralph got
    When sucker ain’t around, it’s your friday, it was good
    I wasn’t salty, she was wit the boyz n the hood
    Chorus:
    I see the bitch in you when you don’t speak your mind
    The bitch in you, looking me in my eyes lyin
    I see the bitch in you, simply hard, you find
    The bitch in you but yo it’s coming out
    Verse two:
    Up on this rap shit, cube, I’m calling out
    I break in and smack niggaz that’s in the slaughterhouse
    This ain’t no east coast, west coast, none of the above
    I’m from chi, I went to cali, niggaz gave me love
    There’s a thin line between the fake and the real
    Grafted ass nigga, I see through your glass shield
    Had skills once upon a time on this project, yo
    I’m a have ta wreck a ho’shea
    I heard a ho say you her favorite rapper
    (so what) so I had to slap her, ugn
    And violate you, a muslim drinking brew
    Your nigga ain’t no mack 10, he’s a 22
    I seen you, you ain’t say shit to atl
    Cube, I like that diamond charm, I might cuff it, then sell
    It out, like you sold kam and threat
    A year ago, you wasn’t talking shit about the west
    Guess you knew you’re shit was done plus the one got you cable
    Hoo bangin, you ain’t banging shit but the table
    And the circle madd, ain’t got no choice but to fight
    Ain’t none of y’all muthafukas got a chance on the mic
    Anytime you come out, yo, I’m a talk about you
    Until you let that bitch in you, walk up out you
    Any last words before I hit the switch
    From the immortal words of one, a bitch is a bitch
    Chorus

    LSD- Is this a recent discovery?

    N- It’s a recent discovery after the “Oh No” video. After money had the tight choker on in that video. And we started asking questions, and people from Virginia started telling us that he’s a straight Flagrino. And he takes it up the ass. I cut him off.

    LSD- Even though the beats–

    N- Fuck the beats! [laughter]I can’t fuck with nobody that Mohammed used to throw off the hill. You know, Mohammed used to take all the homo niggas in the village, and he’d take ‘em to the top of the hill and he tricked them. He’d tell ‘em ‘Yo, jump down there’, and when they’d
    jump down there, they killed they self. We don’t fuck with homo. I like lesbians, though. I’ma stand up–I like lesbians and dykes. If you’re lesbian and dyke you’re okay to me, but if you’re a homo, I don’t even like you.

    When did Cube destroy Com? The general consensus is that “The Bitch In Yoo” beat whatever Cube and the Westside Connection had. No one is debating Cube’s status it just is what it is. Though I’d say that a lot of people sleep on Common, Ressurection, One Day It’ll All Make Sense, Like Water For Chocolate, Be, and Finding Forever are all great albums . . .

    um actually he did mention Jay-z…on Like Water for Chocolate on “Payback is a Grandmother” it was not a diss or was it? you never know with Common, he is the king of subtlety.

    Later that day I went to the ‘shop, to see what was up
    Them niggaz probably knew somethin plus I needed a cut
    Walked in they was playin Jigga (jihh-gga..)<—————————–
    Discussin how Da Brat titties done got bigger
    These niggaz next to me, was talkin bout the heist
    Whoever did it even got Jordan for his ice
    Said that it was done so precise the cops ain’t know nut-nin
    Had to use all my might not to ask no questions
    Put down the magazine, went to the pop machine
    Noticin these cats, had the Bling Bling
    They wouldn’t be talkin if they did it; it could be they team
    A week ago neither one of these niggaz had a ring
    This Hype(?) came in, sellin CD’s; said the BD’s
    was braggin bout robbery they had done
    By now, I’m thinkin bout my gun if I see gramps bracelet
    I’ma play racist (and what?) and make niggaz run
    It’s the big payback..
