4. Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J
Prior to his feud with LL Cool J, Kool Moe had dismantled a modest Busy Bee in a freestyle contest. This time, KMD’s adversary was Bigger and Deffer. Kool Moe alleged that Cool J stole his style and decided to teach the 19-year old MC a lesson via the lyrical whiplash titled “How Ya Like Me Now.” LL fired back with the instant classic “To Da Breakadawn.”
Kool Moe Dee wouldn’t let LL have the final word, so he struck again with “Let’s Go.” LL hit him even harder with “Jack the Ripper,” in which he ridiculed Moe Dee’s trademark Star Trek shades. By the time Moe Dee returned with “Death Blow,” Cool J had already hung the “L” on his neck and rocked his bells.
Winner: LL Cool J
