In August of 2013, Control - Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar was the wake-up call to American hip hop scene. On that same month using the beat from Control, Swings began the diss war on the Korean hip hop scene. This was the first time where diss war of this scale was launched in Korea, and the audience welcomed it in excitement. Because it gained so much attention to become headlines of top search engines and SNS, many unpopular rappers joined to take a bite at it. But the main story line was where the real focus was. Swings dissed everyone, meaning literally everyone and told them to "come at me". Then the top mainstream hip hop artists joined in one by one and gave a huge info about the backstage of Korean hip hop. And this battle destroyed Amoeba Culture in the end.
There were 2 parts to the battle. First was Swings vs. Simon Dominic & Ugly Duck. Simon Dominic and E-Sens were hip hop duo in a popular group called "Supreme Team". They joined Amoeba Culture then disbanded, followed shortly with E-Sens leaving the label. Simon Dominic and Swings used to be in the same crew before and they broke up due to unknown reason. In their diss battle, info was given that Simon Dominic cheated on the contract with their friends from the crew. Second part of the battle was E-Sens vs Gaeko (of Dynamic Duo). Gaeko apparently charged E-Sens $1 million because E-Sens brought negative profit to the label for being locked up due to marijuana. Long story short, Gaeko and his label, Amoeba Culture, lost their fans, 2 of their top artists (E-Sens and Simon Dominic), and respect. Swings was credited for bringing such storm to the Korean hip hop scene. Simon Dominic joined AOMG and became co-president with Jay Park. E-Sens is going solo and is doing well. Other rappers, not as important, gained some attention. Important thing to note is that they all replied to each other within a day or two, showing their skills of writing lyrics in response.
