If you were a hip-hop fan in the 1990s, then you probably remember the beef between Cypress Hill and Ice Cube, which ignited after the N.W.A. rapper stole their record.

During a recent sit-down with VladTV, Cypress Hill frontman B-Real told the story of their beef's origin, explaining that he missed out on playing a role in Cube's Friday movie and offered him a song for its soundtrack instead. However, when Cube came to the studio to hear it, he got an advanced listen to Cypress Hill's "Throw Your Set in the Air" single... and would eventually steal the concept.

The beef would snowball, and after fights taking place in the streets and diss records, years later, the beef was squashed.
