two of the GOATs and emcees with legendary flow and lyrics, not denying that at all, but honestly, i'd take the Dre/Eazy-E beef over the west/east bullshit anytime of the day
Hit Em Up wasn't overrated, The emotion in that song is what made it so great "Die slow, Die slow mothafucka, my 44 will make sure all y'all children don't grow." That gets realer then some of the stuff in Ether, Don't get me wrong, songs like Ether were great but Hit Em Up was an authentic, true diss track. If you just got shot and you were angry at people who you suspected did it, you're not going to sit there doing some clever lyricism to attack them.
