The 10 Best Diss Tracks Of The 2010s
Of the many things that old heads will insist "were better back in the day," diss tracks are among the few that most younger rap fans can also agree upon. Even if you didn't live through them, the 2Pac / Biggie, Eazy-E / Dr. Dre and Jay Z / Nas beefs all produced shot-firing tracks that still loom large today-- Notorious' "Who Shot Ya" is still referenced by rappers all of the time, and Nas' "Ether" is now so baked into the foundation of rap that its title is now synonymous with a devastating diss.

Who Had The Better Verse: Chris Brown Vs. Tyga ("Fan Of A Fan 2" Edition)
It’s always a joyous occasion when Chris Brown and Tyga link up.
