The 50 Best Hip-Hop Diss Songs

IT GOT PHYSICALFIRST STRIKE

Best Line: "This little nigga named Nas think he live like me/Talkin' 'bout he left the hospital, took 5 like me."

If "Bomb First" was the crazed, manic introduction to Pac's Makaveli persona, "Against All Odds" is the mature, collected farewell. The final song on Pac's The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album, featured Pac attacking the usual suspects: Biggie, Mobb Deep, Puffy, Nas, and randomly De La Soul. But this was the first time Pac addressed his former NYC associates Stretch (Randy Walker), King Tut (Walter Johnson), Haitian Jack (Jacques Agnant), and music industry vet Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond.

Unknown to the general public, Pac labeled the latter two as snitches, accusing them of setting him up during his sexual assault trial, and leaving him to take the fall alone. This added a whole new street element to the 2Pac saga, which ended tragically for just weeks later. If any of this was correlated to Pac's demise, the world may never know.
