when he prefaced that line with a “I got love for you all” it immediately lost some of the impact it coulda had.
^ So, when Nas said “What’s sad is I love you ’cause you’re my brother” in “Ether”, you thought that made the song “lose some of the impact it coulda had”?
The difference is, Drake & Kendrick were cool at a point.
By the time Nas released “Ether” there was no love between the two, which makes the “I love you, you’re my brother” line that much more potent.
By calling Jay his brother, it makes Nas look good, like the only reason he was going at Jay was because his hand was forced & at the end of the day, he still had love for him. It makes him look like the bigger man by admitting the petty nature of their “beef”.
