Despite multiple reports, Drake’s ‘Back To Back’, a diss record aimed at MMG‘s Meek Mill,is NOT the first ever Grammy nominated diss record. In fact, there have been multiple diss tracks to receive Grammy nominations in the past, and surprisingly most are not rap songs! While some of the disses aren’t as direct as Drake’s ‘Back To Back’, from LL Cool J’s Kool Moe Dee diss to Justin Timberlake’s shots at Britney Spears with ‘Cry Me a River’, we compiled a list of some of our favorite Grammy nominated diss tracks, and some that even took home the trophy!

When comparing rappers Big Sean and LL Cool J, we now know two things. First, Big Sean’s ‘Paradise’ track (one of the best tracks on his newest Dark Sky Paradise album) is substantially better than LL Cool J’s track of the same name. Hell, LL’s hook goes “Paradise is very nice.” But now we also know that Big Sean is much better at pictionary than LL, as the two competed against each other on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
While Big Sean teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and drew a pretty solid tree house, LL Cool J gave a hilariously pathetic attempt at a tattoo drawing for his partner, actress Rose Byrne. Watch the two rappers compete below!
