16. Ether/Takeover– Nas/ Jay-Z
Now we couldn’t put one over the other so they share a spot together. The biggest hip-hop beef between two of the most respected rappers of all-time. It started when Jay-Z through some shots at Nas on ‘Takeover’ and then Nas responded with a whole track aimed at Jay-Z with ‘Ether.’ Who won? Thats a question that many people still have different beliefs on all together.
Dope Lyrics: -“When these streets keep calling, heard it when I was sleep/ That this Gay-Z and Cock-A-Fella Records wanted beef“-Nas -“2 of them shits was due, 1 was nah the other was Illamatic, That’s a one-hot-album-every-10-year average, And that’s so (lame)“- Jay-Z
