Since there was no internet in the 80′s and 90′s, there was no discussion about subliminal rap disses of that era. We’re here to uncover them all, as we did recently in the case of Del vs. De La Soul.

One that’s always bugged us was on Freestyle Fellowship’s “Bullies Of The Block”, as seen above. P.E.A.C.E. starts the song off, and in the middle of his verse, he (seemingly) imitates Greg Nice of Nice & Smooth with the line “Wicky Wicky Wicky Wack MC / There’ll be no tricky tricky tricking me!” before reverting back to his own style with “Shut up! Sit back and enjoy the beatdown, sucka!”

The rest of the verse doesn’t seem to apply to Greg Nice, but the competition in general. Anyone out there that can shed some light on this? Discuss.

    It could be just a homage type of thing–that’s how I always looked at it.

    It’s always a matter of context, and sometimes hard to tell by the verse (like Cage in Good Morning, wasn’t sure if he was dissing Slug, but apparently not, since he played at Soundset a few years later). In this case it certainly sounds to me like a dis. Then again, we all know that Greg Nice said a bunch of nonsense (don’t get me wrong, I loved Nice and Smooth); maybe he was truly paying tribute by also saying nothing.

    You know you can make a whole section of this on the subliminal disses the WU put out and still does.

    Let’s be honest with ourselves here, Nice & Smooth made some very fun records, ones I still listen to happily still….but Greg Nice was not a very good MC. So I could see this definitely being a diss, but who knows….without knowing the backstory between the two groups I can’t call it. But I love this type of stuff.

    Speaking of, as a big fan of both groups I’ll be embarrassed if it’s a very obvious answer, but does anyone know what beat the Lords of the Underground allegedly stole from Showbiz & A.G. to spark the line “Fake lords they get strangled with mic cords/taking beats from my LP for sure ain’t healthy”? It’s something that’s bothered me for many, many years.

  • I wouldnt be surprised if it was, PEACE has always been the enforcer of FF. Even though lyrically I think Acey & Myka could go bar for bar with anyone, PEACE always took it upon himself to check fools. Example: I was associated with an up and coming act called the Resident Ailen Squad and one of the members (Messiah) was a Rasta cat and during shows he would have someone on stage waiving around the Lion of Judah flag. Well the Resident Ailen Squad started bubbling a tiny bit and was opening up for FF, Visionaries, Emonon etc.During one of the shows PEACE goes up on stage and starts going in on Messiah saying that he was biting his style cause he’s the one that originated the waving of Lion of Judah flag in the LA underground scene. They went back in fourth for a little while until they got to know each other then it was squashed but that was the most random reason to go in on someone. So it wouldnt surprise me if he did diss Greg Nice for no apparent reason.
