you dont see anyone running around typing you got super uglied, or “its a blueprint2 war”
^Ether sounds better than saying “that was a takeover” like joke. The ether beat was better, the jokes seemed more easier to understand than in the takeover, c’mon, how many people knew about the shit on the tour bus with the large professor? It was the truth, but the average fan didn’t know WTF he was talking bout. I still think takeover was better, but like billz said ether was more epic. So it really boils down to what you look for in a diss song, jokes or reality.
That’s why I think Joe budden “blood on the wall” might be the best album diss song of all times. It’s funny & it got hella facts in it
Let’s not forget takeover was one verse, ether was 3, & it’s still imo a 50/50 battle
so I guess you wasnt tuning int to hot 97 when they took the calls for who the winner is huh. Jay’s own man clark kent had to go with ether. Funk flex (after seeing the tide change) hopped of jays sack. It was unanimous eskay.
FUN FACT: Nas stop performing Ether because he felt bad for Jay. Hes the type that doesnt want harm done to his rivals, BUT if you fuck with him long enough…
IMO, Budden/Ransom was a better battle than Jay/Nas. And I aint sayin’ that just because Budden tore his ass up with facts AND jokes, and didn’t stop rappin’ when the beat off. It was just a lot more even.
The ether beat was better than takeover. The beginning when pac came on you just knew some shit was about to go down. I remember when I first heard it (around a bunch of nas fans that wasn’t nas fans 5 minutes ago) when I heard the “fuck jay-z” part, I started smiling (n/h) thinking to myself like “this is gonna be ugly”. Ether is the perfect diss songs for occasional listeners, for the real deep hip hop fan takeover is better. Only niggas I hear on the street saying ether was better don’t even own illmatic, or know 20% of the shit I know about rap, ether is a diss song for the same people that liked nelly at the time.
On the real, there wasn’t one fact in ether besides the lips diss, & that’s kinda gay
To me you just a trick who like to judge men lips – oshino
Ether was a thin skeleton of a beat with no forward motion. The song is propelled soley by Nas’ voice and delivery (which is a testament to Nas as an MC). Have you ever heard it without the vocals? It kind of sucks. I could listen to Takeover without the rhymes. Kanye killed that shit.

>>I don’t think them shits afterwards (after Ether) won the battle either. They were good, but the frustration was evident. That nigga was on Angie’s show about to go through a whole box of Kleenex.
you’d be frustrated too if the public was trying to hand you an L over a medicre diss.
^Oh boo frickin’ hoo. So now public opinion in hip hop don’t matter? I always knew you were a dictator.
Man Nas crushed Jay man! The take over was hot though and you have to give dude some props for that, but the battle was with Nas not Carmen. Jay has been wanting to be Nas for a minute. Ether was crazy and super ugly was plain wack! I got your voice in my songs and I’m going to try and bone all your chicks and when I think I’m big enough I’m going to try you. I lost when I tried you, so I’m going to sign you and not have to worry about you banging me out again. Man when Big and Wu and Nas was poppin’ Jay was rhyming on tapes with Big l gettin’ embarrassed sounding terrible! Rapping all fast and wack! Nas’ problem was when big unfornutately went down he didn’t step up and take over the industry. Jay had the album with Foxy and went from there. This is still the same Nas that made illmatic that was 5 mics on the first time and didn’t have to beg to get that either and didn’t make another album for a minute and everybody wanted him on their album and he sounded better than the host! I thought Shady was way better than jay on renegade and jay got off on that too! Go figure when you really put in work a better rhymer out duels you. We should have a song with 2 verses each of the top 10 rhymers and see how would out shine who after that long song! I’m sure not many will say Jay sounded better than Esco! Man down Jay, you get it in, but Nas is just a little bit better!
And Jay was crying like a chick at hot 97 when nobody liked that was super ugly! super wacky! lol!!! Yo my dude Jay is crazy! That Joe beef was tight too, but a lot of people are talking about facts I never heard anyone validate any of jay’s claims of showing hm a tech on tour. I must have just missed that. Real talk when 50 gets at someone I believe all shit stuff because we’ve heard young buck cry and no one ever disputes what he claims. He stays with proof. That dude is in the hood offering a couple of dollars and get those birds singing! I’m with him!
