    This makes ZERO sense. I was a foster kid and now am an offical member of a family.. And Kid Rock has never made songs with Run-DMC…. Red has made mad songs with WU members so he’s a member offically or not.. We’re not saying Fredro Star is a Wu member cause he did one or two songs but Red who has done mad tracks

    and that’s cool that red did songs with whoever. He can be featured, he can be down with the crew, but you can’t be a member of the clan son.

    Foster kids is a bit different, and also not at all what I said. I meant more along the lines of , there is a kid who lives across the street that’s always at my house bc he’s my sons friend. He’s literally ALWAYS at my crib, but WTF ima look like saying ” you should be in my family”

    ^^

    As constructed, Takeover is SONICALLY a better song, from the sample used to the flow and cadence.

    From a rap perspective, Ether was just more potent. While CamelGOAT was focused on exposing the Lil Homie both streetwise, business-wise, and musically, Nasir focused on Sean Carter, not Jay-Z. But revealing the various things people always would say, and uncovered Sean the person, not the rapper, while at the same time talking down on all the people who doubted him:

    “First Biggies ya man, then you got the nerve to say that you better than big. dick sucking lips, won’t you let the late great veteran live?”

    “How many of biggies rhymes gonna come out ya fat lips”

    “You traded ya soul for riches”

    You seem to be only concerned with dissing women/ were you abused as a child scared to smile they called you ugly?/ Well life is harsh hug me don’t reject me/ or make records to disprespect me, blatent or indirectly”

    You a fan, a phony a fake a pussy a stan..

    I mean, the truth in this is harsh as fuck if you followed their careers…

    Thats why Ether makes your soul burn slow, but takeover is the better song.

    JihaD
