jigga always talkin slick like he saying oh takeover was just a better track overall

well, nas brought tears to this grown a.ss man so i guess we could cut him some slack and salvage whatever ego he has left to scrape off his burnt soul

i do agree that ether was more of sh!ttalking but c'me on who drops science and present a foolproof logic based on hard facts on a diss track? it's where you go nutso and just RIDE on your enemies... some reckless talking and spit particles are meant to be a part of a diss and shouldnt take away from its potency. anyone who says otherwise is just picking reasons to hate on the track

takeover, compared to ether, was not as intense. hov's voice didnt help either. it may be viewed as a better produced, wholesome track, but it was too groomed and structured. i guess what im trying to say is takeover didnt feel as an emotionally charged personal attack as ether was. but i do acknowledge the fact that takeover wasnt directed at just one person

a diss track isnt supposed to sound like someone actually took some time out to really think and put together a logical argument against another person. ether sounded like some off the dome type bullying going on like you'd see on the streets

I Think Takeover was better, but since Jay-Z got all the money, at least give Nas some bragging rights and say he won

he's right, its not even close. ether was full of lies and name calling
were there any lies in ether?


nahhhhhh


like i said ether facts come right from jaz-o

thats why that n*gga jay was acting extra salty towards jaz after that

when he be like "when the grass is cut the snakes will show" and all that other s**t, he talking about Jaz spillin all his extra personal business with nas to ether him

also helps explain why Jay leaves that n*gga jaz dusty and broke. . .

Ether was 2001's Hit Em Up.

This man turned Ether into a verb!

No one remembers Takeover except NY hip hop heads and Jay-Z stans.

Real talk I remember i was in the hood at a gas station getting something to roll up with and a argument starts breaking out in the parking lot. I didn't really give a f**k so i went inside and grabbed a blunt, came back outside and these two dudes are squaring up and this dude turns to his car and his boy and is like, "PUT MY SONG ON DOG!" and Ether starts blaring and this guy gets all hyped up i was dying laughing, they ain't even f!ght but i mean no ones gonna be like, "PUT ON MY SONG DOG!" and then hear Takeover...

Jay-Z don't got it in him to get vicious. He's too soft.

I always thought Takeover was better.

Ether is that s**t and it changed the definition of the word but Takeover always seemed more factual and better thought out to me. Then Super Ugly just took the cake as far as humiliating a person with the truth. Nas never came back from Super Ugly.


What you on?

Like a few people have mentioned, Jay just said it was a better overall record, not a better diss track.

I would agree with that.

Real talk. Jay-Z had no idea Nas had it in him.

Jay went into the battle thinking he was gonna toss dirt on Nas' grave and it'd be a walk in the park and then Nas just made that n*gga cry... that's why Nas won... Jay was the big kid in school who goes over to the down and out kid and tries to bully him and then the kid straight knocks out the big kid and everyone is like, "OOOOOooohhh s**t!"

on some real s**t I aint think nas had it in him either


cause before the battle Nas was fresh off some lackluster efforts


n*ggas also love to forget the Stillmatic freestyle, which i mean if you really analyze it is one of the best verses Nas ever put together. . and the eye for an eye freestyle

but when takeover dropped i really thought nas career was done


but Nas = GOAT tho and came back like a champ

He's right...

"The Takeover" = Diss Record that Actually Ended Careers

"Ether" = A bunch of s**t talking nonsense that had no affect on Jay-Z's Career or Paper in the least

Men lie, Women lie... Numbers don't.
Numbers Have nothing to do with lyrical content. There are many platinum artist that can't rap-a lic...(ex: Nelly, Soldier Boy,...)Listen to both songs. Some of ya'll may not know that Jay used to rap all fast (a-la Twister) and was dacning aroung all silly on the "Hawaiian Sofie" video wit the loud shirt on wit his mom's botfriend Jaz-O. Either only sounds dumb when you don't know the history. "Takeover' was no slouch dis-track, but its nowhere near "Either". U and Jay-z sick.

If jay would have just said he hit nas baby momma in takeover instead saying that u know what who did who keep that between me and u (or however he said it ) he could have won but he waited for nas to k!ll him with ether to put that info out and by that time it was to late lmao
