Boogie Down Productions — Super Ho
‘Sucker MCs’ again. Here’s a Wu-Tang cover version
(And, hey, why not, here’s battle cat Iron Solomon’s ‘Sucker MCs’)
Boogie Down Productions — The Bridge Is Over
One of the great early dis songs, this was a response to MC Shan’s ‘The Bridge.’ Since then, these lines have been quoted in about a million rap songs:
Manhattan keeps on makin' it,
Brooklyn keeps on takin' it,
Bronx keeps creatin' it
and Queens keeps on fakin' it
The first part of this line (“Too late baby bye”) is from “Too Late” by Junior.
Buju Banton — Boom Bye Bye
Dancehall artist Buju’s ‘Boom Bye Bye’ is about shooting gay men. Rap Genius prefers ‘Driver A,’ which was used to great effect in Grand Theft Auto 4
Flush with fame from his costarring role in Coming to America, Arsenio Hall hosted The Arsenio Hall Show from 1989 to 1994. It featured guests like Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Michael Jackson, Bill Clinton and Louis Farrakhan
KRS One’s fifth time on Arsenio was to perform this very song (along with Sound of da Police). In the interview he expanded on the theme of Hip Hop vs Rap.
One of those ten videos is the one for 1995’s ‘MCs Act Like They Don’t Know’
Mind You the song “Mc’s Act Like They Don’t Know” was released 2 years after “Hip Hop Vs Rap”. From my industry knowledge this line and lines after are a subliminal diss towards Souls Of Mischief who were new label mates of Krs One.
