The rivalry that was occurring in the mid 90’s was due to the general feeling of disrespect so
Ice Cube, MC, and Mac 10 released this track directed at their fellow coastal rivals from New York. The failure to acknowledge the presence of West Coast Hip Hop frustrated Ice Cube and as a result responded harshly demanding respect stating “ Just because we made it real niggas got to deal, I hope blood ain't got to spill, I kill”. By this time many artists became sick and tired of hearing that their music was phony and commercially mainstream.
