A barrage of responses came from West coast rappers like MC Eiht ("Who's F**king Who"), Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg ("F**k With Dre Day") and others.
The coastal tensions climaxed with the infamous unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur in Sept. of 1996 and Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace in March of 1997.
On Tuesday, new albums from Fat Joe ( Me, Myself and I ) and The Game ( Doctor's Advocate ) hit stores.
The two rappers appeared at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square, where they purchased each others albums.
"It was a great day for unity in Hip-Hop," Fat Joe told AllHipHop.com. "To me its all about the music its not about competition, even with both of us coming out on the same day we showed that you can support each other, Hip-Hop needs more of that."
The Game is showcased on the song "Breathe and Stop," contained on Fat Joe's album Me, Myself and I.
The Game's Doctor's Advocate and Fat Joe's Me, Myself and I are in stores now.
