    I lost respect for Nas' rap game ever since he signed to def jam. How can u make a diss like 'ether' then turn around and shake hands with the same dude who you adamantly referred to as a homosexual. And nobody, including Nas or Jay themselves, can convince me that the beef was nothing more than just a casual hiphop feud where 2 rappers were merely sizing eachother up for the sake of hiphop. Dude said he had sex with his wife and left condoms in his kid's baby seat. Both of them got on some real personal shit. But it wasn't even like they both compromised on equal terms by squashing beef. Jay was def jam's CEO at the time. Jay signed Nas. Nas got shelved. Its like I'm the only one who sees the bigger picture

    Jay-Z = uncontrollable hustler's ambition, networth of 450 million, 14 Grammys, 11 number 1 albums, beautiful wife and family, countless historical verses and performances, huge influence. Nas = horrible flow, uneven discography, several failed sellout-attempts, wifed two whores, broke, pays child support for a daughter whose embarrassing him on twitter, works with Young Money after accusing them of destroying Hip Hop, stops working with his weedcarriers because he's in fear of getting destroyed on a track, goes from the africa-loving social empowerer to the violent, drug-dealing, crime-glorifying don, signed to his arch enemy to be left 4 commerical dead.

    First off, most of you dudes allow Jay's success to cloud your judgement. You guys have some crazy way of thought where you think that the more successful artist can't be the more gifted rapper. I'll tell anybody with a straight face that Jay's lyrical abilities go far beyond the ones of Nas. Nas did never spit something on the level of Jay, this nigga said some things that Nas couldn't come up with in his wildest dreams. Nas is easy to understand, Jay is all into metaphors to make a statement, which is why he's flying over so many people's heads. He didn't write DECODED for nothing. Jay's probably the most misunderstood artist of all time. You really think Nas could SPIT (and I'm only talking about pure rapping ability here) something like The Dynasty Intro, 22 Twos, 44 Fours, Grammy Family Freestyle, Breathe Easy, Imaginary Player, Shiny Suit Theory, Hovi Baby, Pray, Fallin', Where I'm From, Devil's, Can I Live or No Church In The Wild? That's just ridiculous. And don't hit me with the myth about Nas' storytelling, Jay can EASILY do the same as we've all heard on Meet The Parents. No need to mention the unfair differences in their flows

    oh please. pick a verse from any illmatic track and it will be not, only better, but it will be actual poetry. why are we actually arguing when we all know that jay is a nas fan. the reason takeover was full of so many "facts" was, because dude been studying nas. he himself said nas one of the best and if you go check on youtube, everytime nas performs one of his illmatic tracks and jay is on stage, he knows every line.

    i love how people keep bringing up i am and nastradamus as nas' fail, but those same people keep talking about numbers don't lie. yet those two albums were some of nas' best selling albums. so what is it ? cause if i look at the numbers of these two albums, it obviously wasn't a failure. why i don't like nastradamus is because of the quality of the music. nas had one misstep (which everyone keeps bringing up ) but other than that he has been very consistent. all his other albums have been classics or near classics according to critics. go check it out. why i say he is one of the GOATs is because he most probably more than any other rapper(except pac)has had a bigger influence on the artform that is hip hop. how many up and comming rappers have mentioned illmatic and it was written. HE IS BEING STUDIED AT SOME UNIVERSITY FOR FUCKS SAKE. yet when they mention jay, they talk about his business accumen or how they wanna be like jay, rarely his work. i read an article a feww years back about jay and nas, to summarise it: NAS IS HIP HOP, JAY-Z IS THE HIP HOP BUSINESS. i like both these rappers. have both their catalogues from front to back. nas has always been my favorite. just saying! and since we are talking about numbers. five number one albums, 7 platinum, two gold, over 25 million sold worldwide and when they VOTED which diss song was better: ETHER WON. not bad numbers. LIVING LEGEND!!

    There are different sets of fans here. Nas & Jay-Z stans. I'll admit to being a Nas stan. But I don't look to see whose made more money or buy into any of that shit to be honest, as I can't relate to it. Most people who love Jay-Z are the ones who like to listen to visions of grandeur, which is great. But how much can you actually listen to? I like Hip Hop for it's music, not it's news stories. For lyrical ability and content how can you even say with a straight face that Jay-Z is better? For commercial success and millions in the bank, yes of course Jay-Z wins. Do I care, or do most people who've listened to Nas all these years care? Congrats to Jay-Z, he truly is the most successful rapper of all time. Congrats to Nas for being the most gifted lyricist of all time (well better than Jay-Z anyway) And for the reason I came here in the first place - what a great song and video.

    still on the takeover vs ether debate. it was voted and nas won. end of story. if takeover was better, superior and won, according to you jay stans, why did jay ( after he heard ether)feel the need to respond with super ugly? nas hit a nerve and jay looked at ether and takeover and thought "damn gotta step it up" did not happen though. for those saying takeover stated facts and ether didn't go and listen to the classic track again. i always looked at ether as the complete diss track, because it hit jay from all angles: facts, humor,some of that good ol' street shit. takeover sounded like an essay and not a good one at that. as far as nas' money. we have no idea how much nas has. we always hear that "gs move in silence", but nas is the only one who is a g i guess. cannot say a thing about nas' artistry, so attack him on other things.

      You talking a lot of bullshit in here, too biased. Why kept Jay going if Ether hit him so hard? It had virtually no affect on Jay's career. He might've been shocked in the first moments, but he calmed down to realize that he's the far superior of the two. Jay destroyed Nas with nothing but FACTS. Nas is a guy with absolutely no integrity. See how he handled that situation with Cormega and decided to sign to Def Jam AFTER he called Jay a phony, describing him as greedy sellout and shit. Let's be real here, going from Illmatic to IWW is the DEFINITION of sellingout. He traded Hip Hop mastermind for successful hitmakers. It can't go any further than that. Nas tried to be an artist that he clearly isn't made to. He betrayed his principles, fans and everybody else with IWW. Takeover had the waaaaay bigger impact. Why did it force Nas to change his WHOLE style and to go back to his true self? He KNEW Jay was right with all the things he said about him. EVERYBODY gave up on Nas after the double-headed disaster known as I Am... and Nastradamus. He lowered the expectation even further after IWW, which had people calling Nas a sellout and a huge disappointment and all that leaded to the outrageous overvaluation of Ether and Stillmatic as a whole. Jay said openly what everybody, including Nas hardest fans, already thought about him. I don't need to mention that Takeover was the much better piece of music. Ether was straight trash as a record. Point being, you can say what you want about Jay, he always stayed true to himself, made historical moves and outclassed his whole competition. You might say sales don't matter, well, that may be true to an extent, but the huge difference between Nas and Jay's accomplishments speak another language. You CAN'T talk ELEVEN Number #1 albums and 14 Grammys away, to even think that people won't use that as a an argument is ridiculous in itself. Nas stans are the first to support an opinion if it suits their agenda, but but let a Jay fan even try to use some numbers to compare it, they damn it. Jay is the GOAT, Nas is in a line of many other greats, but FAR from being an ATG. An album with 9 tracks, which even had one weak track (One Time 4 Your Mind) and was stacked with the best producers of that time doesn't give you that status. A GOAT has to prove himself time after time, Nas' inconsistency disqualifies from such a discussion for now and forever. Jay managed to master the hardcore fans and the casuals, that is the quality that elevates Jay to the level of the undisputed KING.

    How could anyone be mad that Jayz kept making music? How can anyone think that nas won? The winner is the one who goes on and continues to make relevant music. And nas didn't. so he lost. Just as any rap beef goes. busy b and kool moe dee, krs one and mc shan/marly marl, mc lyte and antionette, ll and cannibus.

  • TRUTH

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday (Im currently on my Kendrick wave). You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS

      "R.O.C. we runnin this rap shit." Jay and Nas are 2 of my favorite rappers and dopest to come outta New York after Big and Big L but forreal Takeover takes the cake over Ether why? well "R.O.C. we runnin this rap shit." Jayz proved this statement by squashing beef with Nas and took over his career by signing him to Def Jam. On Ether Nas went on tangent calling Jay a fan, a phony, a fake, a pussy, a stan, yet he signs to Def Jam with Jayz runnning things there? Yet he calls Jayz a saviour of hip hop? All these things ruin the WHOLE point of Ether. So in a way Jayz won this beef because Nas just couldnt live by his words on Ether, Jayz proved his point on Takeover and made Nas surrender his career rights to Def Jam while Jay was boss there.

PERIOD! name another rapper that has lasted as long as him and still selling records... everybody looks at jay and says he sold out because he doesnt talk about the same stuff he did back in the reasonable doubt era or even the blueprint era. hes passed that, hes 40 years old and surrounded by money, yet he still recognizes that his words have an impact, you think watch the throne was all about money? did you even listen to murder to excellence? did you even listen to new day?

    Nas is borderline garbage now and released nothing but laughable trash since Stillmatic. People always talk about his gimmicks, never about his actual music. To say Nas is the best ever shows your huge lack of knowledge about Hip Hop. There's 100 rappers out that would tear him down with ease. You dudes are beyond retarded. There's a reason Jay z shitted on that walking fail several times.

    Great song from Esco.

    I lost respect for Nas' rap game ever since he signed to def jam. How can u make a diss like 'ether' then turn around and shake hands with the same dude who you adamantly referred to as a homosexual. And nobody, including Nas or Jay themselves, can convince me that the beef was nothing more than just a casual hiphop feud where 2 rappers were merely sizing eachother up for the sake of hiphop. Dude said he had sex with his wife and left condoms in his kid's baby seat. Both of them got on some real personal shit. But it wasn't even like they both compromised on equal terms by squashing beef. Jay was def jam's CEO at the time. Jay signed Nas. Nas got shelved. Its like I'm the only one who sees the bigger picture

      Rex^^^ really???? U repeat the same shit over and over is Hovito paying u? Oh and for ur info once Jayz bought his baby moms not his wife cause he's only been married once he lost !!

    Nas fans are delusional. They've been waiting for Nas to follow up Illmatic with another classic but it will never happen. So they call Stillmatic a classic becuase it was moving on from Illmatic. But it really wasn't. The beats sound dated as fuck. Listen to The Blueprint. The beats were ahead of there time. Jay Z continues to set the standard in hip hop today while Nas continues to play catch up.

    Em is 10x better than nas jay is 1000x better than nas Nas=horrible flow, no witty lines, no punchlines, no complex rhymes, poor wordsmith...Just simple lyrics and overrate him as hell. And for those calling illmatic GOAT, u are very stupid. How does a 9 track album translate to GOAT ? when rappers like 2pac and biggie release double cd's as 1 album. Em constantly release 17-20 tracks classic. which great song is on illmatic ? Stan is cultural milestone(even nas uses the word stan). 99 problems was a milestone as well. which memorable song is on illmatic?

      The World is Yours One Love N.Y State of Mind You are an ignorant SOB. Open your mind kid. You obviously don't listen to Nas or are in tune with the real essence of Hip Hop.

  • 2Pac's ghost

    Lol its funny how the single is number 1 on this site and hasnt even ranked on the billboard charts. My point proven, nas is overrated by the hiphopdx readers, get your head out of the 90's and realize that people dont like this old ass motherfucker anymore. anything you say will be disregarded, this site is officially a joke, nas is dead, real hip hop is alive.

  • Snookie

    fuck nas his old ass never had a hit. this shit is dumpster music

    MAN NAS IS THE GREATEST OFF ALL TIME!

    • $$$$

      Jay Z- Net worth over 500 milli Nas- Net worth in debt -6 milli with the IRS Don't get it twisted nothing Nas has done, affected Jay Z, you can ask Nas Himself that. If anything thats the only thing that keeps Nas relevant, "Ether & illmatic" LMFAO you cant count up how many Jay Classics he has.

    Man this real ill, Nas is the greatest rapper alive, 2nd greatest of all time, after Pac. 5/5 LIFEISGOOD GONNA BE CLASSIC SON!! BUY THAT MOTHERFUKN ALBUM

    • anon

      Nas would erase Illmatic off his catalouge to work with any of those legends, he gotta stick with Young Money. Just another testament to Jay being the GOAT.

    • Billy Bucks

      Nas' daughter is older and has experienced more (done some dirt). Jay-Z's daughter is still a baby. Jay will have plenty of shit to say once she's 14. Jay is only a dad...he's not a FATHER yet....there's a difference.

      How is Nas shitting on his Daughter? When she put that pic of box Condems on the Net the haters were saying Nas lost. Now he does a song about the situation and now u say he's doing his daughter Dirty and may I add Destiny is the video.. Com'on^^^^ son knock it off u insecure fuck I kno it hurts u that Nas is truly better than Jayz and that Daughters--------- Glory! Atleast we kno Destiny is Nas biological daughter no one kno's for sure if Blu Ivy came out of Beyonce body and not some sperm donor type shit..... Nas = Goat. Jayz= Camel!

  • wolfman

    This video single-handedly graduated hip-hop from strictly being about the depths of harsh livin and ghettos to maturing as an adult and children. People can say what they want about Nas as long as you never discount the man's creative talent to pave his own way. 9 stars.

      It would be interesting to find out what you consider a good song or you just like certain types of songs. Nas is one of few rappers who does what he wants, not what is always commercial successful if you anything about his music.
