Title: B Real “Ice Cube Killa” and “East/West Coast Killa” which came first
Post by: Infinite Trapped in 1996 on March 15, 2019, 09:03:27 AM
I always liked B Real and respected him but never bought any Cypress Hill album.  I was always a big fan of Dre’s “East/West Coast Killaz” and thought it was one of the most historic and underrated songs in rap history.  I was surprised to hear that Cypress Hill’s Ice Cube diss had that same line “Killah(z)” from the hook that Dre made.

So which came out first? 

And I guess Dre was kind of friends with B-Real and Cube in the midst of the beef and by using that hook it’s sort of like siding with B-Real??

Sort of like siding with B-Real? Come on man. "Ice Cube Killa" came out in '96, after "Bow Down" was released.

EDIT: The "Killa" part is not the same sample or anythin'. I just bumped both songs.

Are you sayin' that just 'cause Cypress said "Killa" in their hook, they took it from Dre?

No I wasn’t saying anything I was just asking the question.

Anyway, it’s all a moot point anyway if the diss came out after Bow Down it sounds like the hook from the Dre track preceded anyway... but since B-Real is on the Dre track it would be interesting to know who came up with that hook and wrote it for the Dre track

Btw, Dre was working wit B Real in 96 a lot they did “Puppet Masters” together as well which was another banger.  Sure it means nothing as far as taking sides
