Was watching KRS on Drink Champs and Kurupt’s line “oh you got the juice I squeeze the juice” that Kurupt was probably speaking on the Juice Crew... not really a diss or anything but just kind of like a jab or a reference of East Coast counterparts and their claim to dominance as Emcee’s

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"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."

It's "Oh you got the juice? I squeeze you juiceless".

Yes thanks for the clarification...

The word follow Juice-less was “it’s” so I don’t know it kind of ran together in my head

Oh, good point. Never thought about it that way.
You're probably right. And not everything is meant as a straight up diss.
Sometimes it's just friendly competition.
It's battle rap, MC shit, that's what the whole song is all about.
Unfortunately it was misinterpreted and lead to a whole bunch of crazy beef.

I figured it was a reference to having power, the same way it's used in the film Juice.

Yeah, I feel that's a reach. Kurupt has always talked about the song being a head nod to the East Coast. It wouldn't make sense to send shots. That is, until the video haha

I mean yeah, a lot of it is just hiphop and if he was thinking of the Juice Crew then yeah that was probably nothing more than in the spirit of competition. 


There is a side of me though that feels like there is some revisionist history going on whenever rappers act like the East/West thing was only a media invention...the lines were a bit blurred... but I digress
