Remember when Jay challenged Nas to a PPV Battle?
 

 
I mentioned this to a friend and he thought I was lying, most donít remember this...



For two consecutive days this week, Jay-Z guested on Angie Martinez's afternoon show, speaking out on rumors of civil unrest within the Roc-A-Fella camp ó which he scoffed at, insisting, "How could I leave the Roc? I am the Roc" ó as well as his falling-out with former mentor Jaz-O (see "Jaz-O Reminds World Where Jay-Z Got His Blueprint"). More significant, though, was Jay-Z's reaction to the ongoing beef with rapper Nas. Echoing a challenge that he made in the current issue of The Source magazine, Jigga suggested that the two rivals settle their differences with a pay-per-view rhyme battle. He added that each party could pony up $1 million for the wager, with all event proceeds going to a charity of the winner's choice.

By day two of Jay's marathon interview, he reported that boxing promoter Don King had already faxed in a proposal to organize the event. Don't call up your local cable-providers just yet, though ó as of press time, Nas had not accepted, nor even responded to, Jay-Z's three-rhyme challenge.

In hindsight I canít believe this actually even happened - Jay-Z challenging another rapper to a PPV battle pre- URLTV Smack DVD.

I mean..of course jay did

His ego was hurt

Its like when your cracking jokes with a kid and your boddyyiinnggg him, if his ego is fragile you know eventually he'll say "u cant beat me though"

Jay was the kid basically saying i can beat you up

And i was a big jay stan but even i know he was hurt

it's because the perception at that moment was nas hurt him bad with ether so jigga had to up the ante and appear strong and ready to throw down at a moments notice even tho that wasn't jigga's style or game. people forget nas was like a declining power going into that beef and his next album. his lead single was literately titled, "hate me now" before all of this and it was with puffy. he was the baby goat out the gate and people thought he was a disappointment or he fell off.

jay was on his meteoric rise like all of def jam/roc/ruff ryders post pac/biggie death and he thought he could slay the baby goat and supplant his status as the king of new york (even tho dmx was doing better numbers at the time but that's besides the point.) he went at mobb deep for that reason on the same song and the summerjam sh*t for the same reason. it was an attempt to claim the crown because jigga understood the politics/legacy sh*t unlike someone like dmx who was just pure artist.

problem was people didn't expect nas to come back like that. they thought he was too pacified. he was in full on faux mafioso "get fat and retire in miami" status at that point. but brother came out going at everything, because the jigga sh*t was clearly personal even went at his looks and notice ever since that dissin women scared they called you ugly line jigga has done nothing but been more mature and bigging up women thread just got posted that re-upped that article about him disowning "big pimpin" and being embarrassed about writing it that line clearly hit home. changed the entire perspective of jay's raps from there on out. made him self reflect. 36 in a karate class? ever since those lines jigga was the "mature" rapper.

that's why nas won that battle. not to take anything away from jigga's legacy he's still one of the best to do it. his abilities are legendary. one of the goats i love so much of his music and it brings back memories. but keep it a buck we can argue the better diss and better song in that beef but one diss woke up a monster who's career got resuscitated after and the other hurt the other guy so bad he changed his entire approach to music. that's why nas won that battle. it wasn't just best diss or anything, that changed the mans behavior that's wild.

I remember reading something about that online...

Nas casually said "Pay Per View for Wrestlers and Boxers" and basically challenged Jay to a album battle.

In retrospect, God's Son was a better album than Blueprint 2.

If Jay had trimmed that down to 1 disc, maybe it would have been better.

On the title track, Jay accepted his loss to Nas like Seto Kaiba did with Yugi Moto at the semifinals of Battle City and moved on. I remember that episode well. It was a 6 part episode which I was thought was a good analogy.

Nas= Yugi

Jay-Z= Kaiba

Prodigy= Joey Wheeler

I go back and listen to Nostradamus and it wasn't even that bad. it has some of my favorite nas songs ever like; come get me, life we chose and family. I do remember a lot of people saying that nas fell off but I didn't see it

Yea son was hurt lol
Ether was such a momentum swing, you'll never understand if you weren't there.
Jay had n*ggas on the ropes with takeover.
The whole blueprint was an Instant classic for real, everybody was bumping that. Especially the n*ggas that be in here hating on him everyday, they loved this n*gga back then lmao.
I honestly thought nas and p was done and both of them was my n*ggas lol
Then like 6 months later ether dropped and had the rap world shook tf up. Radios everywhere were running it 5 times in an hour and sh*t lmao

Also it was good Nas ain't accept
He ain't a battle rapper for one(and hov knew that)
And two, he now had the ups. Ether was the hottest thing in the world. sh*t became slang to this day
Nas pulled a rabbit out a hat
