We all know that the old-school beef-on-record phenomenon has never died. The media blew up the east-west thing until it was all that people could think of to explain the Pac-Big tragedy. I'm not going to call that one beef; it was simply a misunderstanding between friends that could not be resolved before time ran out. Who knows who was really winding the clock? Marley and Shan made \The Bridge,"" and then Chris and BDP made "" The Bridge is Over."" Cool J and Mo Dee, of course, had their storied episodes, and then LL played the punk role and wrote his dis verse after Canibus' was already laid down. The shame is that Can-I-bus' career has been minimal at best (good thing he studied computer science), and as a result garners little credit for his immense gift with words.
