JAY-Z, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are among the names fans have tossed up amid a debate on social media about the best sneak disses in Hip Hop.
Blogger and podcast personality NerdAtTheCoolTable started the conversation on Thursday (March 16), asking Twitter: “What are the best sneak diss lines in hip hop history?”
A slew of results came back, with everyone from Hov to K.dot to Drizzy as well as Lil Kim, Jack Harlow and more being mentioned.
“Nothing been the same since they dropped control and tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes,” one user said, quoting Kendrick Lamar’s 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards cypher, adding: “Kendrick cooked Drake.”

“I personally prefer this Drake response, since he talked about more relevant stuff than ‘you’re sensitive,'” another person wrote with a clip of Drake’s verse on the “SH!T” remix where he seemingly gets at K.dot.
“Kendrick’s one was pretty direct tho, with saying NWTS, so that’s a point, but all the “high five I’m bullet proof” was kinda corny imo.”

Another metioned Drake’s verse on “Stay Schemin,” where he got at Common amid their feud over Serena Williams.
“This is my fav Rozay and Drake collab but don’t know exactly what Common did too put my man on gangster rap and executed it perfectly,” they wrote. “This Drake sneaky diss is so hard can’t believe people say he’s is pop star.”

JAY-Z’s subtle shots on wax even once caused the beef between Roc-A-Fella and The LOX in the early 2000s, according to Beanie Sigel.
In the latest segment from his conversation with VladTV, Beans offered some insight on the origins of the beef between Roc-A-Fella and The LOX. The tension between the two collectives made their beef one of the most memorable at the time, with all the lyrical jabs and disses that were hurled back in forth.
For years there has been speculation as to what caused the two factions to go to war with no clear story. However, Beanie Sigel has given his side of how things went south between the crews.
According to the State Property co-founder, The LOX were firing subtle shots at the Roc-A-Fella team on a variety of tracks. But it all apparently began after Hov jumped on the remix of R. Kelly’s “Fiesta,” the original of which Jadakiss appeared on.
Jay’s verse on the track had The LOX feeling like he was attacking Jadakiss on the low, and before long, the war began.
“Kiss had that record. He was on that R. Kelly record,” Beans said about the original “Fiesta” track. “He didn’t take a shot at me. Jay took a shot at them. ‘After the party it’s the hotel lobby … and after the original it’s probably this.’ That ‘Fiesta’ joint. Kiss and them was on that joint first.”
He continued: “It was a shot because it was a couple joints that they was on first and Jay jumped on joints and then you hear little stuff. We all know who the best is Big ain’t here so it was a lot of dark storm.”
