Three of the biggest crews in hip hop during the late 1990s were from the Big Apple. Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records, Fat Joe’s Terror Squad, and Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad. Busta maintained good relationships with both crews. But, there was never much love between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad.
For years, there have been rumors of Jay-Z and Big Pun getting into an altercation at a New York club. Rumors suggest Pun ended up hitting Jay-Z over the head with a bottle. While he has never spoken on it directly, rumors also say Jay-Z has subliminally dissed Fat Joe and Terror Squad several times.
In 2008, Jay-Z and Fat Joe officially ended their “beef” with the help of Swizz Beatz. Older and wiser, Busta Rhymes is providing insight to what happeend that night. Busta said he visited Roxy and when he got there, his “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” was playing repeatedly. It surprised Busta on how much love it received, but this surprise ended when a fight nearly broke out between the Roc and TS.
The fight was ended when Kid Kapri decided to play Busta Rhymes’ hit yet another time.
