What Was Prodigy Beef with Jay-Z & Nas?

 


American rapper Albert Johnson, better known by his stage name Prodigy, was born on November 2, 1974 in Hempstead, New York. His greatest professional successes were accomplished as one half of the hip hop duo Mobb Deep.


But almost as much as writing great rhymes, Prodigy loved a good rap beef. His career was filled with battles against many of the greatest rappers of all time, and he usually gave as good as he got.

Who's Album Was Better? Jay-Z - The Blueprint or Nas - Stillmatic

 


The Jay-Z vs. Nas beef was a gladiatorial battle between two rap titans. For almost a decade, two of rap's most decorated emcees went at each other's throat.


At one point, they even took a poll about the beef, with 58% of listeners saying they preferred “Ether” to “Supa Ugly”. The consensus seemed to point to Nas as the winner. “Ether” has since become an emblematic diss track, with rappers reinterpreting it for their beef purposes.


Jay Z and Nas' feud was sparked over a Memphis Bleek lyric in 2000's 'My Mind Right', causing the rapper to respond to both Bleek and Jay Z on future mixtape tracks. The feud escalated further when Jay Z called Nas "lame" on 2001's 'The Takeover', prompting Nas to take aim at Jay on 'Ether'. The beef continued in this wild manner until they ended it publicly at the 'I Declare War' concert in Philadelphia in 2005.

Jay-Z vs Nas - What Really Happened


The feud between Nas and JAY-Z was a gladiatorial battle between two rap titans. They started off with subliminal jabs and moved up to body sh*ts. Fans cheered on. Crews got in the mix. Digs got so personal that parents had to step in. Thankfully, the battle didn't end in tragedy like Biggie vs. 2Pac. It ended in triumph. And friendship. JAY-Z and Nas would later shake hands and join forces.

50 Cent And Cam'ron Squash Beef


The beef between 50 Cent and Cam'ron is like water under the bridge for the two rappers who recently caught up in New York. 50 shared a photo of him and Cam sharing a laugh with the caption, "I said Cam I would talk to you like you ain't got money, if I didn't see them big ass knot's in ya pockets."

Back in 2011, Cam'ron spoke on his past beef with 50 Cent, as he told MTV, "I don't have no problem with 50. 50 cool with me. It was good for hip-hop. We had our little hip-hop beef or whatever you wanna call it, but ain't no problem. Jim [Jones] and Juelz [Santana] do stuff with 50 and they camp all the time. I don't have a problem with 50 at all. It is what it is. We had our little discrepancy, and we moved on from it."

Did Nas & Jay-Z Have The Biggest Rap Beef Ever?


For a time, the intracity rivalry between Jay-Z and Nas appeared destined to end. The seeds of dispute were planted in 1996, when Nas failed to appear at a recording session for Jay's legendary debut album, Reasonable Doubt. Nas's sophomore record, released weeks after Jay's debut, included at least one line "inspired" by his rival.

The beef took another step in 1997 when Jay-Z anointed himself New York City's best MC following the death of The Notorious B.I.G. In 1999, Jay-Z associate Memphis Bleek took aim at Nas, and in 2001, Jay ripped into the Queensbridge product on "Takeover," a track from his sixth album The Blueprint.

Understanding The Greatest Beef In R&B History


Not only do the Wrap-Up Magazine feel R. Kelly should be crowned the King of R&B, he also should go down as being part of R&B's greatest beef of all time!

From Down Low through Busted, R Kelly and Ronald Isley made some of the best hit songs together. If you’re a 90’s R&B head like myself, you’ve probably witnessed the longstanding feud between R. Kelly and Mr. Biggs (Ron Isley). Year after year and song after song these two were at each other’s necks.

Irv Gotti Talks Beef Between Jay-Z and 2Pac

 

2Pac was attempting to ignite total warfare against The Notorious B.I.G. This means anyone that stood next to Biggie was liable to be hit with a direct shot. Per Irv Gotti, that was the case when it came to 2Pac's issue with Jay-Z

Irv made a recent appearance on Fat Joe's Instagram Live show, The Fat Joe Show, during which he touched on Jigga's tension with 2Pac. Gotti told Joey Crack that Hov got on 2Pac's bad side by having Biggie featured on "Brooklyn's Finest" from his debut album, Reasonable Doubt. On the track, Big makes a rare allusion to 2Pac by using his name in witty wordplay.

"Gotta go, Coolio mean it's gettin' Too Hot," Biggie raps after making a reference to "Who Shot Ya" earlier in the song. "If Fay' had twins, she'd probably have two Pacs/Get it? Tu... Pac's?" Per Gotti, allowing Biggie to get this off on his record put Hov in 2Pac's crosshairs.

Did Eminem Really Defeat MGK In The Rap Battle?


It's time to put this debate to rest. Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly had one of the best rap battles that took place in 2018. Since September, the Internet has been buzzing over who won the rap battle.

Battle rap is a type of rapping that includes bragging, insults and boasting content. Eminem has even been rated one of the best rap battlers of all time.

When it comes to MGK and MM beef, this is how we measured it.

1. Best lyrics goes to Machine Gun Kelly for the way he ate Eminem in "Rap Devil." Not only did the lyrics go off, the video was way more entertaining than Eminem's response.

Why Nelly And KRS-One Rap Beef Happened


In 2002, Nelly was one of hip-hop's biggest stars. His 2000 breakout debut, Country Grammar, sold nine million records.

Old school boom-bap rap pioneer, KRS-One, who had earned a reputation not just for his community-conscious lyrics but for never shying away from a lyrical showdown, called Nelly out.

KRS— who by that time had already proclaimed himself to be a keeper of classic hip-hop— voiced his discontent with Nelly on the track "Clear Em Out" from the compilation The Difference.


The song was aimed at pop-rap, and given his success as hip-hop's reigning top-seller at the time. Nelly took offense. He'd just dropped the track "#1" from the Training Day soundtrack, where he was defending his right to reign on top of the charts.

"He had to defend himself. He's like, 'My career probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for KRS-One,' that's what Nelly is on. My man got tired of critics and made a song '#1.' He wasn't specifically talking about nobody, but if the shoe fits, wear it."

KRS claimed he even sent an email to Nelly's camp, explaining there was no beef and he wasn't interested in getting into it with the St. Louis star. Nelly didn't get the memo, however, and in response, recorded a verse on the Freeway's "Roc the Mic" remix, on which he called out the veteran rhymer, letter by letter.


KRS responded by calling for an actual boycott of Nelly's album, Nellyville, which was scheduled to drop that June 2002, dramatically declaring himself a "sovereign power" in the process. Nelly challenged a sovereign power.

Needless to say, the whole boycott thing didn't exactly pan out the way KRS had hoped. June 25, 2002, rolled around, Nelly dropped Nellyville, and the entire world danced to the album's monster hit, "Hot in Herre." Nellyville ended up selling over 6 million albums and it stands as the 14th best-selling rap album of all time.

Would You Like To See A Nas And Jay-Z Collaborate Again?

 


The history of Jay-Z and Nas beef will be talked about for years to come. It seems like it was just yesterday when Nas and Jay-Z were involved in the what some may call the greatest Hip-Hop battle of all time.


It seems that Jay-Z and Nas have put all of that behind them. In 2006, Nas was good enough for Jay-Z to sign him to a $3 Million dollar record deal. Even Fat Joe and Jim Jones have a long-standing history with JAY-Z, having beefed with him in the early 2000s.


Until we hear otherwise, let's look at past Jay-Z and Nas collaborations and beef and talk in today's terms. What if they were to collaborate again in the near future. Do you think they would produce there best work yet? Or do you feel it would only end up as it did the first time?
