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.

    ^ Shame on you for taking the topic so damn seriously. This post isn’t “needlessly causing division in an already divided culture” so much as it is creating fodder for hip-hop history nerds to discuss. Who cares about this possible beef? I do. From a rap history perspective it’s fascinating. Competition is a major part of the foundation of Hip-Hop and “beefing” is a way that this spirit of competition has been executed throughout the course of the artform’s history. A post on HHS in 2011 about the topic, whether there was a dis or not, is not going to cause Nice and PEACE to slap each other with gloves, walk ten paces and duel it out.

    All that said, after listening again, whether or not he’s dissing Greg Nice, PEACE is definitely imitating him there NO QUESTION. Like I said earlier, i don’t hold Nice in high regard as a lyricist, but dude had one of the most distinctive flows and voices out there. That was no accident. Just a matter of whether it was homage or parody.
