Tony Yayo and DJ EFN have engaged in a spirited debate over who’s the better rapper between Ice Cube and The Notorious B.I.G.

During an interview with Drink Champs shared on Saturday (July 8), the G-Unit rapper and the Miami DJ gave their own perspective about both legendary artists. While Yayo went with Biggie, DJ EFN decided to run with Ice Cube as their personal pick of who’s the G.O.A.T.

When DJ EFN declared that Ice Cube was his pick, Tony Yayo was in pure disbelief, asking the Drink Champs co-host if Cube had better verses than Biggie, to which he emphatically said: “Yeah.”

From there, after DJ EFN said, Ice Cube’s 1991 diss record, “No Vaseline” from Death Certificate was better than Biggie’s 1997 track, “N-ggas Bleed,” off of Life After Death, chaos ensued.

“This is why I hate this industry shit,” Tony Yayo said. “So you telling me Ice Cube is a better storyteller than Biggie? You fucking buggin! You lost your fucking mind! Ice Cube is better than Biggie as a storyteller? You fucking buggin n-gga! You lost your fucking mind!”

The two men continued to debate on which artist reigned supreme before the 45-year-old rapper admitted that Cube was “fire.” Tony Yayo kept doubling down on DJ EFN being crazy before both men turned to others in the room to help support their particular choices.

Within the same interview, Tony Yayo revealed that he doesn’t feel that New York, as a whole, has had a lot of luck with its Hip Hop stars as of late — and a lot of its bad luck has to do with the unfortunate murder of one of its hottest up-and-comers at the pinnacle of his career.

Pop Smoke — like, I wish he would have stayed in the hotel over the AirBnB,” he began. “Rest in peace. But, that kinda fucked New York up. New York was coming back, bro. We had Pop Smoke, we had all these drill n-ggas startin’…A Boogie. But Pop was…you know.”

He continued: “Now, New York is worse than Chicago. And California with the drill, because n-ggas is throwing like n-ggas dead friends in there. When we had battle raps with Ja Rule and them, n-ggas was still alive. […] But there’s no remorse with the drill music. N-ggas shooting little kids.”

The “Fake Love” rapper also talked about rappers who are facing RICO charges.

Yayo previously spoke extensively about Young Thug — who, himself, is facing a wide assortment of RICO charges — but he believes that the Atlanta native will beat the charges against him.

“Thug coming home, man,” Yayo said in an interview last month. “The case … it sounds like a clusterfuck, man. Free Young Thug, man. And you know, it’s like, when you look at the shit, it’s like, he’s a high-profile guy. So, it’s a clusterfuck. You know?”

He went on: “Even moving them around, it’s like, he’s high-profile. This is everyday shit, though … It’ll just make the news because you’ll hear ‘YSL.’”
