    For me I'd have to say Death Row breezed through the battle as summarised:

    "What we do on the West Coast, I sold 5 million in 2 months, Biggie's album been out 2 years and he's barely touching 2 million. This ***** had 50 remixes, 1000 videos, he got everybody in New York in his videos, and still barely touching 2 million- I've been out 2 months, my **** sold 5 million, with 2 videos out, I'm just starting. These ****** cant touch us, they can't, really it's funny"

    But ultimately both parties lost the war, as there was nothing left in the end

    Nas cant support the whole East Coast ffs.

    If we say he is King tier.

    The West had Prime Snoop, Dre, and Pac residing on King tier.

    3 kings vs 1.

    and Illmatic only sold 59,000 in its opening week hehe.

    Man wants to talk about kings. Nas, Rakim, Wu Tang **** on them kings Could add Jay Z in that tier on promotion. Then you got the princes like LL Cool, Big L etc.

    Illmatic is still the GOAT hip hop album. No one fro East or West can touch it.

    I don't really care about the rivalry but depending on how many people you're including, I prefer the albums from East.

    But only just.

    Thinking about it, it seemed to me when I was into all this, that Biggie & co didn't want it with 2Pac & Suge. It all seemed one way to me.

    Would say West won by default.

    Nobody's ever wanted any part of Suge until the late noughties. Genuinely feared mogul. Apparently when 50 cent was shooting the video for In Da Club, he turned up uninvited and half the set ran :rofl:

    You seen Murder Rap wilf?

    The only real return fire from Biggie & co. was Long Kiss Goodnight. Both rappers were dead by the time it came out though.

    It actually disproves some of the the stuff in the Biggie and Tupac one and puts in a more convincing theory. Tell me once you've watched it, I told RK to watch it but he's a ****boy.
