Battle On Wax: Pooh Man vs The Dangerous Crew

Here's a little focus on the beef between former Dangerous Crew member turned convicted Bank robber Pooh Man and Too Short, Ant Banks and Spice 1. I'm not sure how this all started (although I think Pooh was unhappy with his contract) and I'm a little unsure who dissed who first. Pooh's Scarface Records "Judgement Day" album has a handful of Dangerous diss tracks on it including the track "Bring It 2 'Em" where Pooh samples Cube's 'God damn, I'm glad ya'll set it off' and some of his lyrics leave you to believe that Ant Banks dissed first? On Banks '93 "Sittin' On Somethin' Phat" album there is a track dissin' someone, I'm not sure who because he doesn't mention any names although Pooh features on the album so I'm 50/50 on it.

Regardless of that the first tracks up for download are Pooh Man's 'Ant Banks Dis' which is a skit dissing Banks (the man responsible for the MC Ant production and most of the early Dangerous stuff) for not writing his own lyrics (I read a Banks interview where he admits that Bad N' Fluenz wrote half his 'Big Thangs' album). Next up is the 'Bring It 2 'Em' track where Pooh disses Banks and Too Short pretty fuckin' hard. 'Studio Gangsta' is Pooh's diss to Spice 1 and 'Backstabbaz' is Pooh going at Mhisani (aka Goldy) and then Ant Banks. His "Judgement Day" album was released around the same time as the gangsta flick "Menace II Society" that Pooh Man has a role in and kind of reminds me of Eazy E's "It's On" E.P. with multiple diss tracks on it.

Next up is Too Short's "Get In Where You Fit In" featuring Rappin' Ron (R.I.P.) and Ant Diddley Dog. This is a dope track that goes for over 8 funky minutes off his '93 masterpiece. Spice 1 gets his reprisal on his '94 album "Amerikkka's Nightmare" on the last track "You Done Fucked Up". This about the time that addicted heroin addict, Pooh got arested robbing a Walgreens drug store in Oakland and sent to San Quentin prison to serve 36 months of a 5 year sentence. While locked up Pooh Man's "Ain't No Love" album got released on 'In-A-Minute' with the title track being a verbal onslaught on his former crew.

After Pooh Man got released he squashed the beef with Ant Banks and Spice who in a Murder Dog magazine interview said the following.......

Have you ever settled the beef between you and Pooh Man?

Me and Pooh squashed the shit. He got out the pen and I ran into him. We started choppin it up and smoked a few blunts and shit. Two weeks later this nigga comes smashin passed my house with hella cop cars chasing him and a helicopter.

What the hell did he do?

That nigga robbed a bank. He's probably gonna be in there for a minute. That was my nigga. We had a few disagreements and guns was pulled. Tempers flared but we squashed all that shit.

So he wasn’t no studio gangster?

Pooh ain’t no studio gangsta. I knew from the beginning that he wasn’t no studio gangsta. I was prepared to get down with the nigga. We was gonna shoot it out and everything my nigga.

Did you and him ever get into any shoot outs with each other?

No, I had drove up and approached him one time and I had like three or four niggaz in the car with uzi's and I had a glock and shit. He had some of his boys posted up in the house with some pistols and uzi's. Me and dude had a few words but no triggers was pulled

I read an interview with Banks where he said similar things to Spice but at this point have not heard if Pooh and Short have sorted out their shit? Pooh Man is still serving time for Modesto jewellery store robberies and a bank robbery that was being watched by the F.B.I. and led to a huge man hunt. Unfortunately we don't have Ant Banks '94 album "The Big Badass" so I can't chuck on "Fuckin' Wit Banks".

Good shit homie. I'm from new Orleans but I remember this shit well. Brought back some good memories. Respect.

Pooh Man is the greatest rapper of all time and easily won the battle against the Dangerous Crew.

Too $hort said...

Much love to Pooh Man. He dissed me by calling me a "cavity creep" and it inspired me to get my teeth fixed. I also heard he inspired Spice 1 to get shot by calling him a studio gangster. Getting shot in the chest to prove you're not a studio gangster seems pretty extreme to me, but never undersetimate how bad a diss from Pooh Man hurts.

Good story thanks for the info! Pooh didn't stand a chance but it is a classic beef in history of hip hop

I just picked up Pooh Man's new album Kaos Theory from Walgreens and it's dope.

Chauncey said...

It's kind of sad that Pooh Man spent many years in jail just because he was dropped by Jive Records and Dangerous Music. He went from eating pussy on one record to a hardcore gangster on the next. After becoming a studio gangster didn't help him achieve the success he previously had he resorted to robbing banks and Walgreens to prove how hardcore he had become to his former label mates. I don't know if this is true, but I heard a rumor that he was so bad at robberies that he accidentally robbed a sperm bank! Anyway, Pooh was always a dope rapper, but it's sad that he wasted half his life in prison just because of peer pressure.

Big Deuce said...

I was in a Walgreens in the East O recently and a guy that looked like Pooh was working the cash register. I guess the pensions for aging rap stars aren't that great these days.

Rappin' 4Taint said...

Anyone know if Pooh got his poo pushed in while in prison?

Question: What did Pooh Man say to his cellmate?

Answer: Tell me what that deuce look like.

When I was a young man about 7, Pooh man made me suck his little penis and he came in my mouth and said it was tapioca. Then we saw an Adina Howard video on soul beat and he raped my tight little virgin ass hole. He then contacted the dangerous crew and they came bye and all of the group members ran a train on me and came in my mouth and ass. Too $hort then took me to kwick way and stuck a corn dog up my ass and stuck the stick in my pee hole. He then pissed all over me and kicked me out of his Cadillac. A good Samaritan took me to highland hospital and that saved my life. I was later diagnosed with aids. So fuck poo man and the dangerous crew. If you want to talk to me about my rape and my aids call me at 510-730-6075 my name is james

Hello Anonymous who made the comments about a child being raped, Too Short, The Dangerous Crew, etc. BITCH,you must be retarded due to the fact that you've always lived with your aunts or grandmother. You sleep on a children's bed and live at your grandmother's house. You have no ambitions in life accept for chasing after these recycled bitches. You constantly talk shit about the next man because you aren't shit and will never be shit, but a fuckin bum ass loser who gets joy out of this type of shit. Have you gotten a job yet? I doubt it and if you did, let's see how long it takes you to fuck it up over some bitch. You are of as much value as camel shit. You're 34 and still not shit in life and will die not shit. In your mind you once were a famous battle rapper but all you are is a discomplected after birth of a Chinese gangbang. Also if this is a chick, your pussy smells like the Richmond garbage dump. You are mad because you have no power over shit and it makes you bitter. You probably look like Gary Busey and I hope ya mama die right off. Take care.

Mhisani said...

All of Pooh Man's songs are rinky dinky, just a fat ass nigger who had one too many Twinkies.

Mhisani said...

The only thing slappin' is Pooh Man's ball sack on your chin.

Ebony916 said...

James you are a little bitch who is still mad I snatched your baby mama. She told me yo dick game is hella week, hella small and that's why she like bitches now.

I also heard you was gay and there is a video of you sucking dick on the internet. I remember picking yo broke ass up at Bart and making you ride in the back seat like a bitch.And if my pussy smell like the Richmond dump, yo baby mamma show like eating it ������. P.S.

Pooh Man is America's nightmare. Old, fat and just doesn't give a fuck.

Twocock Shakur said...

Pooh Man's performance in Menace 2 Society should have been nominated for an Academy Award. The best supporting actor in a black expoitation film produced by kike's would have been the appropriate category.

The Truth said...

It's Truly sad Ebony that you took time out of your pitiful, accidental presence on this planet to post a fictitious story about me as a child and before hand create a ficticious number and play on my phone, try to manipulate me for your enjoyment. Also, you will have to legally answer for all of it as well as this, along with the tax money you used my child to illegally recieve. You went as far as to use some dude's picture to cause an issue in my relationship. Well that didnt work. You must think about me a lot because I dont think nor really speak about your fat,disgusting, no man will ever touch ass because you look what the devil's shit must look like. You're upset because your heart is broken and you see me as an outlet. The issues with me and you stemmed from your need to be controlling, your disrespect, from the beginning. Not because of an alternative relationship, not because you feel almost 10 years later that I'm bitter because you "snatched" someone away from me. My life continues to get better while you continue to become uglier and live in a sad reality that I actually care about your opinion or this childish ass shit you're foing by phone or by internet. You dont know who I know and you just keep digging a bigger and bigger hole for yourself slandering me and those I know. I know this ficticious add you posted about a cougar looking to solicit herself is also your Cujo lookin ass. People are seeing who you are or have grown tired of your shit and therefore have grown a distaste for you. You're bored, lonely, looking to start an issue ehen your waste of sperm ass wasnt nor has never been a significant factor in my life, yet has only brought unwanted problems to it. You went as far as to have someone from a 530 number contact me, if not yourself, to tell me about this page,I never knew existed. I wasnt even gonna waste my time responding to this shit and couldnt pinpoint exactly who it was until you exposed yourself which was very smart on your part. You love spending my money? Thats funny as you have no access to it and if so that also will look great on the pile of bullshit I have stacked against you. You got choppas on deck? I find that interesting, as you love to talk shit but then want to hide behind real men when you realize that I'm not this bitch that you've developed this fake concept that I am. Move on. Maybe if you search for one of the ugliest inhabitants on this planet such as yourself long enough, you can be happy. Personally I dont give a fuck about you or that. To make it clear to your whiffle helmet wearin ass, the issue stemmed from you from the jump thinking you had something to prove to me or your pride in feeling you took someone from me, which you actually didnt. Things and people change and my week or two of heartbreak due to that initial change was almost ten years ago. Also you have a strange obsession with my dick. Is it because you never have nor will have dick? You must find me attractive.I'm not sure. I've never had a problem getting women. I'm attractive. You are on the far end spectrum of that, the true essence of ugliness. Its sad that again I even had to waste my time on this shit. You need to focus on becoming an adult and end your obsession with me. You havent won shit and no longer affect my life.You obese, bathwaterless, former or current tweak, dog face gremlin lookin ass BITCH

MC Lawrence the Fake Gangster said...

To the dumbass who keeps writing the long winded responses that have nothing to do with Pooh Man, please shut the fuck up.

Bitchass Nigga said...

Pooh Man claimed to have beaten up Goldy, Rappin Ron and Ant Diddley Dog in his DubCNN interview. I'm sure he also pounded the shit out of his cellmate's asshole, but that's another story.

True east Oakland said...

This message is fo anybody who got something to say about my nigga pooh. Fuck you. Everybody know that us east Oakland niggas love smoking weed, pimpin bitches and sucking big black dicks. But we draw the line with swallowing cum cuz that's gay. I been successful sucking dick since I went to castlemont. I love the feeling of a hard dick in my mouth and sometimes my booty. You ain't no real east Oakland nigga if you ain't ever sucked dick on E14. Me and my nigga pooh used to suck each other off every day to put in work for the turf.

BigBlackCock said...

Well, that gives a whole new meaning to 69 Mob. I always figured it referred to a gang or criminal enterprise, but I guess it was really about Pooh Man 69ing other niggas.

Deuce Nigalow said...

Was Pooh Man into scat and associated fetishes with poop? He was always rapping about "the deuce" and even had a song called "What the deuce look like." As huge as Pooh Man has become, I bet his average deuce is a massive pile of crap.

Angry WHITE man said...

I hate all niggers. You fuckin black jiggaboo's are what's wrong with my country. You people make me and my family sick. You are responsible for crime, aids, rape, more aids, babies out of wedlock with aids, poverty, and everything else bad with my America. I wish the purge was really real so I can kill niggers without punishment. Second thought, I can kill niggers and get away with it and just make it look like nigger on nigger crime. I used to rape little nigger bitches in Hayward but then I realized that these black nigger bitches weren't worth my huge white dick. Thank you Donald Trump for having the courage to tell it like it is about these niggers, Muslim terrorists and no good wetbacks. And if any of you jiggaboo's, Muslim terrorists or wetbacks have a problem with what I'm saying come holla at me. I live at 4368 Lincoln ave Oakland California and I'll shoot you in your black or Brown head.

Lil Ol Nigga said...

Pooh Man ain't no studio gangster. He's gotten so fat that he can't even fit through the door at the studio. He needs to go to Walgreens and get some diet pills, and if he wants to stay out of prison, he should pay cash for them.
