Every year on March 9th the line from the LL Cool J Dis Track by Can-I-Bus "Second Round Knock Out" always rings loud
"It’s about who strikes the hardest not who strikes first
That’s why I laugh when I hear that wack ass verse
That shit was the worst ... rhyme I ever heard in my life
Cause for me the greatest rapper of all time died on march 9th
God bless his soul rest in peace kid
It’s because of him now at least I know what beef is"
