Battle On Wax: Dr Dre vs Eazy E

One of my all time favourite battles on wax would have to be Dre, Snoop, Kurrupt, Daz and Nate Dogg vs Eazy, Kokane, B.G. Knocc Out and Dre'sta. The funniest thing about it was that Dre lost it before it even started, like Eazy said "Dre day only makes Eazy's payday" meaning that when Dre was still getting pimped at Ruthless, Eazy made him sign a contract stating that he will be an exclusive Ruthless Records producer. So when he produced all that shit on Death Row Records (including the tracks dissing Eazy) Eazy was getting paid and it even promoted Eazy and got people hanging for his next release. The only person at Death Row who was winning anything was Suge Knight who used this battle to promote the label. Below is a article out of my beloved "Ego Trips Book Of Rap Lists" book doing the play by play on the way it went down, however they missed out on "Don't Bite The Funk" off of Kokane's second Ruthless Records release "Once Upon A Rhyme" and "Wut Would You Do?" reply track on Eazy's "Str8 Off Tha Streetz Of Muthaphukkin Compton" album. Both tracks are def. Also there's the inside cover of Eazy's "It's On" E.P. of Dr Dre from the World Class Wrecking Crew days dressed like a bitch. There is also some footage on the movie "Beef" of B.G. Knocc Out and his brother Dre'sta bumrushing a Nate Dogg video shoot, Nate swung at Dre'sta and missed and then started running for his life as Dre'sta and B.G. gave chase with Nates security guards aiming guns at the Compton brothers, In a post interview Nate's acting all hard like he won the battle but just the look on his face when he was runnin' was enough victory for B.G. and Dre'sta.
