“At number five it’s me versus Eminem! Nah, just joking,” Cannon began. Instead, he chose Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “Dre Day.” Cannon added, “They was gettin’ at everybody.” Next came Ice Cube’s “No Vaseline,” a single that some believed should have been higher on the list. At No. 3 came Jay-Z’s Kanye West-produced Nas diss track “Takeover.”
Drake held down the No. 2 spot with “Back to Back,” his Grammy-nominated diss track that was aimed at Meek Mill. Cannon believes the No. 1 diss track of all time belongs to Tupac and The Outlawz for their infamous single “Hit ‘Em Up,” a track that was poised against The Notorious B.I.G., Bad Boy, and any Bad Boy friend or affiliate.
