In the early-1990s, the Wu-Tang Clan revitalized the New York hip hop scene by pioneering an East coast hardcore rap equivalent to what was being produced on the West Coast
RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard.
In 1992, Dr. Dre released his solo debut, The Chronic; this marked the birth of the G-funk sound that became a hallmark of the West Coast sound in the 1990s
East Coast–West Coast
-Shortly after the 2Pac shooting, “Who Shot Ya?,” was released.
-Although Combs and Wallace denied having anything to do with the shooting and stated that “Who Shot Ya?” had been recorded before the shooting, 2Pac and the majority of the rap community interpreted it as B.I.G.’s way of taunting him.
- After that, 2Pac appeared on numerous tracks aiming threatening and/or antagonistic slants at Biggie, Bad Boy as a label, and anyone affiliated with them from late 1995 to 1996. For example, the songs "Against All Odds", "Bomb First (My Second Reply)" and "Hit em up".
-By this time the media became heavily involved and dubbed the rivalry a coastal rap war, reporting on it continually. This caused fans from both scenes to take sides.
-On September 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur died after being shot multiple times six days earlier in Las Vegas, Nevada.
- Six months later, on March 9, 1997, The Notorious B.I.G. was also shot to death by an unknown assailant in Los Angeles, California.
