"Fuck Compton" is a diss track aimed at the West Coast hip hop scene in general by East Coast hip hop artist, Tim Dog.

Background

Tim Dog, frustrated at being overlooked because of the popularity of the West Coast at the time and at the apparent lack of interest in East Coast artists from record companies, released the song on his debut album Penicillin on Wax. "Fuck Compton" attacked the city's style of dress and musical output and made threatening gestures to several Compton rappers including Eazy-E, MC Ren, Dr. Dre and Michel'le. Tim Dog made clear that he was not including West Coast rapper Ice-T in the diss with the line "I crush Ice Cube, I'm cool with Ice-T/But N.W.A ain't shit to me."

The single, produced by Ced Gee of Ultramagnetic MCs, was released by Ruffhouse Records and became a worldwide underground hit in the clubs and hip hop circles. Two versions of a music video were released, an original version and a censored edit.

Responses

Compton's Most Wanted released a scratched version of this song called "Who's Fucking Who?", with the background sample of "Fuck Compton", putting Tim Dog's voice together and make a line as "Fuck Tim Dog," from their album, Music to Driveby.

Tim Dog's dissing of Compton on this song prompted Snoop Doggy Dogg (his name at the time) to respond "I'm talkin bout you and Me, Toe to Toe, Tim M-U-T; your bark was loud but your bite wasn't vicious, and them rhymes you were kickin were quite Bootylicious"

Responses by Dr. Dre include Fuck wit Dre Day, The $20 Sack Pyramid, and Puffin' Blunts and Tanqueray.

Tweedy Bird Loc and other rappers from Dangerous Records, dissed Tim Dog with "Fucc the South Bronx" and "What's Really Goin' On."
