'Gin And Juice' was nominated for a Grammy award in 1995 for 'Best Rap Solo Performance' and the single was produced by Dr Dre.
2 Pac- 'Hit Em Up'
'Hit ‘Em Up' can be described as one of the biggest diss tracks in Hip Hop history. West Coast’s very own 2Pac fires shots at his East cost nemesis and rivals Biggie and P Diddy as well as Biggie’s wife Faith Evans and Lil Kim who he reportedly had an affair with. Three months after the release of the track in September 1996 2Pac was killed in a drive-by shooting.
'Hypnotize' was the last song that Biggie released before he was killed just a week later. The song appears on his 'Life After Death' album and went to number one, making him one of the few artists to get a number one posthumously.
Dr Dre ft Snoop Dogg- 'Still D.R.E'
'Still Dre' features Snoop Dogg and it was released in 1999. The track is one of the biggest singles off of Dr. Dre’s album 2001.
Eminem- 'The Real Slim Shady'
'The Real Slim Shady' is a song that really put Eminem on the map as a force to be reckoned with. The single released in 2000 won Eminem-real name Marshall Mathers- a number of awards including a Grammy for 'Best Rap Solo Performance' in 2001.
