Clouds are dark and brothers are hidin'
Dick-tricklin' at the sunny mutherfucker's are ridin'
Started with five and, yo, one couldn't take it
So now there's four cause the fifth couldn't make it
The number's even - now I'm leavin'
This is a subtle diss to Ice Cube. When he left, N.W.A went from five members to four. Cube, on the other hand, was anything but subtle in his disisng.
N.W.A spent quite a few tracks dissing Cube (Whom they called “Benedict Arnold”, or B.A. for short), but Cube came back with one track “No Vaseline” in 1991. He completely devastated N.W.A lyrically and the end result was Dre leaving over a financial dispute and the dissolution of the group. One of Cube’s lines on “No Vaseline” was a direct response to this particular diss:
“I started off with too much cargo,
Dropped four niggas now I’m makin' all the dough.”
A nice response.
