We just got an indication of the depth of the mid-90s Jay Z-DMX rivalry from Irv Gotti, who revealed that Hov didn’t want X on Roc-a-Fella.
During that time period, the two best selling emcees squared off in a legendary pool hall rap battle in The Bronx, NY.
Sauce Money was there when it went down, and he reports to Doggie Diamond TV that things got pretty hairy.
“Niggas pulled out guns while they was rhyming,” said Sauce Money. “Niggas was pulling out hammers because how we did it was, we had to get on top of the pool table on one end and the other end. So we on top of the pool table battling with each other rhyming and pulling out hammers.”As for who won … Sauce, who was known for his collaborations with Hov, believes Jay came out top.
