of all there is and never was a "Eastcoast - westcoast
beef". It all started of with the friendship 2Pac
and the notorious BIG begun in 1994, Tupac suported
BIG, they made some tracks (Pac & BIG - runnin'...)
and met pretty often. The picture on the left shows
Tupac, who is born in Brooklyn, NY - eastcoast &
The notorious BIG, Bad Boy member - eastcoast havin'
dinner at Pacs house.
Tupac helped BIG, introduced him into Thuglive and even
bought Biggies first rolex.
These two started out a beef at the end of '94, which
was the base for the later so called "Eastcoast
- westcoast beef". BIG begun to copy Pacs style
and dressed like Pac, In "Makaveli - Hit em up"
Tupac says Now its all about versace / You copied my
style, he calls BIG "a pac style taker, B writer".
In the 1994 shooting in NY, tupac accused Bad Boy &
Biggie to have set him up or did not warn him bout the
set up, later Junior Mafia (Biggies crew) becomes convicted
of setting up pac. Pac started up an lyrical beef with
Bad Boy, he disssed Bad Boy, Biggie dissed Tupac...
Then Chino XL said Tupac was raped in jail and things
like this, The beef between Death Row and some East
coast artists was born. Snoop, Pac and the whole Death
row and some more Westcoast rappers dissed Bad Boy and
the East, they lived the Cali way. Strech Walker, long
time friend to Pac (who was with 2Pac when he was shot
but didn't help Pac, he pissed of) changed sides and
became Biggies Sideman. Pac accused Puffy of making
Mainstream MTv HipHop, and the East coast artists replyed
by saiing Pac did just Gangsta shit. One year after
the NY shooting, Strech walker was shot, after Pac was
released from jail, everybody said it was revange for
Pacs shooting in 1994, cause Strech didn't help Pac.
September 13 '96 2Pac was shot, 6 month later, 03-09-1997,
Biggie was shot in an nearly identical way Pac was in
So the east-westcoast beef had an end
and I think its time for stopin' talking about "East
