The rivalry between Jay Z and Nas is legendary in the realm of hip hop lore. The two had the biggest rap beef during the time since Biggie vs Tupac when Jay Z dropped “The Takeover”. Nas would later go on to release the famous “Ether” song which has now become the word in hip hop for ending rap battles.
However, the two men resolved their issues and have recorded songs together since that time. They even worked alongside each other on the same music label that Jay Z was a head of in Def Jam.
The rap fans being astute about the history between the two have noticed a trend of Nas and Jay Z releasing music at the same time. Some believe that Jay Z is being petty still over the Nas victory in their rap war by trying to take shine away from the Queensbridge hip hop artist. The question was addressed on a segment with The Breakfast Club.
