2pac- Hit Em Up

Artist: 2pac
Title: Hit Em Up
Album/ B-side: How Do U Want It
Record Label: Death Row
Catalog Number: None
Year Released: 1996

This track became famous for the attacks 2pac made at a majority of the East Coast hip hop artists, many directly by name. The song attacked Notorious BIG directly as Tupac opens the song claiming “That's why I fucked yo' bitch, you fat motherfucker” referring to Biggie’s wife Faith Evans. In the outro of the track Tupac closes with a harsh attack as he states “Well this how we gonna do this Fuck Mobb Deep Fuck Biggie Fuck Bad Boy as a staff record label and as a motherfuckin crew And if you wanna be down with Bad Boy Then fuck you too”. As one would guess, this did not sit well with the artists on the East coast and the feud intensified to a point where the end result would eventually be bloodshed. However 2pac shows no sign of letting up even after his attempted murder in 1994 claiming “Who shot me? But ya punks didn’t finish, Now ya ‘bout to feel the wrath of a menace… Nigga, I hit ‘em up.”
