What Is Houston Rap's Best Diss Song Ever?

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn't a national holiday, Rocks Off will have some of them hear discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Bun B, Fat Tony, Renzo, Kyle Hubbard, Brad Gilmore

Not Invited: Lil Troy

This Week's Prompt: Last week, Jay-Z told Peter Rosenberg he thought that, looking back on it, that his "Takeover" diss record was better than Nas' "Ether," which people have generally come to accept as one of the best diss songs of all time.

So, question: What is the best diss record from a Houston rapper ever? Is it Pimp C's attack on Lil Troy? Cham's Mixtape Messiah massacre of Mike Jones? One of the bombs that K-Rino or Trae lobbed at The Box?

Bun B: Probably the Chamillionaire mixtape dedicated to dissing Mike Jones.
