Mack 10 has dispelled a long-standing myth that 2Pac put out while he was still alive, and he’s happy to set the record straight once and for all.


Though the Westside Connection MC initially made the claim nearly a month ago, the video is once again making the social media rounds — mostly because the West Coast vet finally debunked the long-standing myth that “Hit ‘Em Up,” the notorious Biggie diss, inspired “Bow Down.”

“I don’t know, I — nah,” he said to No Jumper. “That’s totally false. We was too into what we was doing to even care about what “Hit ‘Em Up” or any other record sounded like. Nah, that’s false.”

Mack 10 also went on to discuss how he and Ice Cube were “always together,” and enjoyed a close personal relationship. Unfortunately, however, the pair weren’t able to maintain their relationship, as the Terrorist Threats rapper recently revealed that he hadn’t spoken to the NWA vet in more than 20 years.


The West Coast rap veteran was asked about his long-running rift with Cube in an interview with Bootleg Kev, admitting their relationship has remained frosty since they parted ways back in the mid 2000s.

“I fuck with who fuck with me, you dig? That’s where I’m at with it. If you fuck with me, I fuck with you. But if it’s fuck me, it’s fuck you,” Mack said.


“I ain’t seen him or talked to him in damn near 20 years, so there it is.”


  • Their bad blood has even deterred Mack from listening to Cube’s Mount Westmore album with Snoop Dogg, Too $hort and E-40.

“I’ve heard bits and pieces of it, but not really,” he replied when asked if he’s heard the West Coast supergroup’s debut project. “Westside Connection was a movement. It was a little different.”


Mack 10 and Ice Cube joined forces alongside WC in the mid 1990s to form the supergroup Westside Connection, who released their critically acclaimed and commercially successful debut album Bow Down in ’96.


The California trio regrouped in 2003 for their second and final project Terrorist Threats, before Mack quit the group just a few years later after a falling-out with Cube.
