    Ether = better diss. Takeover = better actual song. [4] Takeover also had a better beat by far.

    Ether = better diss. Takeover = better actual song. [3] I prefer Takeover by default, since it samples Five to One in such a masterful way. Hail Yeezus.

    what facts? All he said was that Nas made a bunch of shit that sucked, and he didnt' even say why. Music's subjective. He said "It Was Written" was "nahhh", which might be true if you like Jay-Z's dick in your mouth.

    Hip hop con actitud rock. Uno de los mejores desafíos en rima por escuchar.

    Fuck the Takeover and Ether debate, I love returning to this song just because Jay-Z destroyed Prodigy. You can't even argue about that one.

    I dont care what anyone say, Takeover>Ether. Ether has some corny lines. feels like a mixtape track w/o much thought.

    Nas was already on the ropes when Ether was created - let's keep that in mind. Nas managed to dent Jay-Z's rep when he was on top. Now some Jay-Z fans like to get into their head that if if weren't for Takeover, Nas would have had no buzz to feed off and his career continued to stagnate. Well damn, regardless of some undeniably fiery lines and quips, if Jay-Z 'helped' Nas by dissing him then that renders Takeover a bit of a failure in hindsight does it not?!

    Either way those "Yea, I sampled your voice, you were using it wrong" lines are pretty great
