You’re Killin’ Me: Subliminal Disses

December 30, 2011 · Posted in beef, you're killin me · 25 Comments 

What was the worst thing about Hip-Hop in 2011? All of the lame subliminal disses. Without a doubt! For an industry of full of hard, mean, shoot your body up rappers we had a ton of lame subliminal diss tracks. Even Common jumped on the bandwagon towards the end of the year. If you’re going to diss someone, diss them! Say their name on the track. Jump in the ring, don’t dance around it. Hit ‘em with that bada boom boii. You’re killin’ me.

I guess it’s what we get when we teach children to run away from bullies instead of confronting their fears. You can’t run to a teacher or principal in real life sonny boy. People are going to try to bully you. You’re going to have to stand up for yourself. We’re raising wimps. Anyways, that’s a topic for another day, and another place. The point is that Hip-Hop is full of wimps. Probably because of the school system which taught them. I’m not asking for rappers or people in general to act like gangsters, and be bad asses either. I just want for rappers to not be wimps about calling someone out, and stop doing lame “diss” tracks with a bunch of subliminal jabs. If you’re not going to say anybodies name, don’t even bother. Holla at Game for some lessons. The dude is a master at calling people out on tracks.

Then you guys go blaming bloggers for starting beefs? What are people supposed to think when a rapper says “boii” in a Big Sean accent, after lines such as, “get it while you’re here boii, ’cause all that hype don’t feel the same next year, boii”. Am I on one or something? That was just one example too. We had at least one of those every month this year. Lame subliminal disses, you’re killin’ me.

Once again I’m not calling for rappers to be violent, and start beefs. Just that if you’re going to start a beef, start it, don’t half cook it. Stop it with these lines with double meanings. You rappers know exactly what you’re doing; it’s no accident. If you mention The Throne of course we’re going to think of Jay and Kanye. Don’t be stupid. Mention peoples name on tracks. You’re killin’ me.

    I feel you I mean beefs are apart of hip hop back in the day as u said when someone had a problem they took it to the mic and said what needed to be said i myself miss a really good beef back to back just to see who would win nothing violent but to great rappers going at it..

    I was thinking the same thing lol. i was expecting you to name a few of them though, i might add


  3. jae on December 30th, 2011 6:33 am

    honestly, these posts become lamer(sic) by the day..

    I feel as tho a artist may not be directing the line to anyone, but bloggers help blow it outta proportion. Saying the name is the only true way we know for sure it is a diss. For instance… did anyone ever think Jay was talking about everybody money being small compared to his when he said “baby money”. No, they didn’t. Now everybody waiting for him to respond to something he didn’t even want… smh.

    They’re so worry about their $, whips, bottles, & bitches that no one hardly does rap for the love of the music no more.

    Sissy Reasons why rappers won’t name drop (the voice is read as a rapper whining.)

    1. I don’t want to lose my twitter and facebook followers if I lose the rap battle.

    2. I might still want to do a song with him and get this paper.

    3. I want him to be my friend undercover and I’m subliminally dissin him just to get his attention.

    4. His city has my favorite club and strip club and I can’t take the looks and boos!

    5. The bitches, $, & bottle service in the club won’t be the same again.

  7. Oh My God on December 30th, 2011 7:20 am

    Pussy ass rappers these days. Quez on point again.


  8. E on December 30th, 2011 7:33 am

    agree. if ur gonna diss, diss with saying their names, make it obvious


  9. bankssk on December 30th, 2011 8:09 am

    thats why I rock with 50!! never subliminal he airs it out


  10. quisy1212 on December 30th, 2011 9:35 am

    agreed.we need them to drop names in these songs because we need to get back to real music. weve gotten some of he best music when there is beef going on between 2 rappers.when there is beef and when they rap bout real life problems.thats where i give props to my boy j cole.real life problems.dont rap bout u shootin somebody and reppin ur hood when ur prolly on a beach somewhere

    All the beef is stupid. I don’t even know why people call each other out.
    I used to not listen to a certain rapper if they were fake or whatever, but if the music is good then the music is good. I fuck with the beats the flows and the rhymes. ]Doesnt matter what hood u came from or what set u rep or even if u havent even been from the hood. Drake didnt ever call out big sean with “bois”…neither copied each other flows…drakes got many of flows and has best lines in the game and big sean has one of the best flows. They both came up around the same time, and there both killin it. give credit where credits due. They got there own thing going on individually, they dont need to copy anyone else.

    eminem never pulls punches either


  13. Sampz on December 30th, 2011 12:47 pm

    I think the worse part of subliminal diss is the fact that legends e.g jay z, 50 cent, common, ludacris, lil kim feel they need to diss the new era of music e.g wayne drake and nicki. That shit is killin me.


  14. WhiteBoyyB on December 30th, 2011 2:53 pm

    Certain people be scared to do it ,, because along with music changing so have the way people defend themselves . You used to be able to do jus straigh rap battles dissin each other ,, but now a days you say somethin wrong bout someone and you could end up at the cemetery ,, look at Proof and Slim Dunkin [[ may they RIP ]] or the Gucci and Jeezy beef .

    First off…”subliminal” shots are apart of the art form. If you can speak about someone/something with literature (metaphors, similies, double/triple entendres etc.) I mean, you “say” you want “clean” beef, well, there is no such thing when the “name-calling” began. Most rappers come from areas where you HAVE to defend or back-up what you say. Once the “name-calling” began, then it goes to “fuck you, yo momma, you son/daughter, and any other type of haneous thing a person can say to get up under someone’s skin. In return, this WILL come outside of the studio (depending who’s invovled). I see oyu mentioned Game, well…his friend was SHOT. Tupac- DEAD. Biggie- DEAD. Jam Master J – DEAD (although he didn’t die over his own beef). 50 SHOT…I mean, the list goes on and on.

    I mean, as fans, its easy to hear someone call someone’s name and say, “fuck you”. However, can you saavy your disses and STILL connect to the fans to let everyone know who you’re talking about withOUT actually, sying their name? Yes. For instance, Baby was going around talking how Jay “shouldn’t be #1″ bc he felt Wayne was getting more publicity and more money…and of course, Jay easily deaded the talk with the “‘Baby Money'” line and EVERYone knew who it was for…there was no secret, but a great skin-deep cut (because its true) and the one who get offended responded with his wit…though, its not a deep of a cut, bc its just a “line”. Wayne isn’t kidnapping ANYbody..especially not Beyonce (he has Jay-Z’s lyrics tattooed on his leg…he’s a fan).

    So, let’s keep it subliminal…apparantly the people responding on this website are totally unfamiliar with these type of areas and mind-set most rappers come from….anyway, hope you can understand the perspective.

    I feel you on your point that it is an art form but everyone who put subliminals in a verse this yr denied it was about anyone.. with the exception of Wayne on jay z@H-town Genius,


    H-town Genius Reply:

    @illadelph_meek mill,

    Yeah, and that’s different. But whether you say a name or not….make it creative is all I ask (if its gonna stay in the relm of rapping). But, being ‘tough’ is different. And alot of times them “denying” is simply bc they aren’t “dissing” a person, but prob dissing something they do (such as singing or saving hoze) and one blog site say “so-in-so” is dissing “so-in-so” and everybody agree because (say Drake) is singing about saving hoze <–Example. Now, this person is on a promo and is getting asked questions, solely, based off the elements involved and its "looked at as so-in-so is dissing so-in so "sublimily". These things have been going on for years and this is how a lot of beefs are "created". however, its still a conversational piece, either way…"its only entertainment".

    if you really want a diss, listen to royce da 5’9 song malcom x. he is dissing d12 and actually calling them and saying names. thats a real diss


    H-town Genius Reply:


    ……..and he’s now signed to D12’boss. A “real” diss?? lol.

  18. ichyowie on December 30th, 2011 6:15 pm

    nahh i usually go with quez on the ykms but not this one. subliminal disses result in you actually having to think about the lines instead of being able to skip a line and not miss anything. ill take jay’s entendres over wayne’s simple ass punchlines any day..even though that samuel l jackson line on c4 went hard


  19. JACK on December 30th, 2011 6:43 pm

    “wow Mariah didnt expect ya to go balls out, bitch shut the f*ck ‘fore I put all those phone calls out”… now THAT’S a diss song :)


  20. curt on December 30th, 2011 7:58 pm

    just another reason why eminem is the best rapper of all time. mariah who? Seriously what happened to her after that song?


  21. ROss on December 30th, 2011 8:41 pm

    I think they’re all playing around thinking that if the other guy thinks this part in this song is about him he’s gonna call me out.. and in the end no one ended up calling the other person out. They’re all trying to start beefs and none of them knew how to start shitt


  22. carter on December 30th, 2011 8:46 pm

    lmao, holla @ game for some lessons.
