Penicillin on Wax is the debut studio album by American New York-based rapper Tim Dog. This album contained the infamous underground hit "Fuck Compton" which disses the West Coast hip hop.


  • The intro used the same beat as N.W.A's "efil4zaggin" album intro. Tim taunted "I stole your beat and made it better, to show the whole world that you ain't nothing but a bunch of pussies" before a number of disparaging answering machine messages supported Tim's position. Tim rapped: "Wearing all that black, driving them cars, but you still look wack!"
  • A skit called "DJ Quik Beat Down" was a forty-second audio snippet of Tim Dog physically assaulting DJ Quik.
  • The track "Step To Me" taunted Compton rappers and included the line "DJ Quik he can suck my dick".
  • "Michel'le Conversation" was a skit where a Michel'le soundalike called Tim Dog to complain about Tim's Compton diss, but then ended up admitting she was "tired of him (Dre) beating down on me" and for Tim to "Call me when you're in town".
  • The track "Goin Wild in the Penile" included an intro whereby Tim had recently been released from prison for shooting a "Compton kid".

The lyrical insults were arguably the opening salvo in what would later become the East Coast versus West Coast hip hop conflict which would ultimately lead to the "beef" between Bad Boy Records and Death Row Records.
