    East and East.
    Then one moved West.
    He said the move made him his lyrical best.

    Two friends they were.
    Then rivals become.
    The cross country battle had now begun.
    Visiting his roots gets him blasted five times.
    He survived to be jailed and discovered his mind.

    He came back to the West.
    He thru down some mean tracks.
    Bumping the beat with a fierce attack.
    Exchanging the word, his lyric exchange.
    He said some things and called those by name.

    Then finally it happened he was shot again.
    He died in a car with a manager, so called friend.
    East struck West.
    Shortly after West struck East.

    Now two major rappers are deceased.
    Biggie and Tupac, both are now gone.

    Was the East coast West coast thing cause of all that went wrong?

    Underneath all the short sightedness, there is a ground swell.
    Of those who silently push manhood, cause Ego’s to swell.
    If it was limited to rappers.
    I wouldn’t be writing this bit.

    It is deeper, carried daily; it’s an east west coast riff.:fight:

    We're supposed to appreciate each other in what we bring to the table, not jealously beat each other down. I like the way you brought it, east coast, west coast style. Great piece Hodee. Welcome back!
