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??

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

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
