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.

Carmen Bryan opened up to VladTV in an exclusive interview about being at the center of Jay Z and Nas' legendary beef. She explained that after breaking up with and moving away from Nas, she started dating Jay Z after first becoming friends.

During the conversation, Carmen shut down rumors that Memphis Bleek started the beef, as she said she feels bad for Bleek and blames Jay Z for ending his career. Carmen also revealed that she confronted both Jay Z and Nas about the beef.

Is Nas The Next Billionaire?

 


We now know that Nas is a smart guy. We always knew he was gonna do, but traditional standards suggested maybe he isn’t the smartest guy, because he didn’t finish traditional school institutions. We also know about “they” schools. We have been able to ascertain that NAS is about to be the next billionaire!


It’s been made public for quite some time now that Nas is an investor in many tech companies and has a vast portfolio. That portfolio has resulted in numerous deals, which have lined the rapper’s pockets. So, Nas will invest in a company and the company gets sold, kind of like Tidal or Verzuz, and then those that helped that company get a higher valuation get paid in full.

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.

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.

Lil Nas X Sued For $25 Million


The mission for the entertainment business was to stop Lil Nas X from entering into the Country music category, but this just takes the cake away from the young artist.

Lil Nas X is being sued over a song he released five months before he hit it big with "Old Town Road" and the company going after him is $25 million in damages.

The company then claims that in June of 2019, Sony acquired the rights to all of Lil Nas X's songs, including "Carry On." The Music Force claims that Sony "knew or should have known ... to make sure all elements of 'Carry On' had been cleared."

The Music Force is suing for copyright infringement and they are also asking for the court to rule that Lil Nas X's song is "a joint work" owned by The Music Force and the defendants. They are seeking $10 million in damages and then an additional $15 million in punitive damages.

Should Lil Nas X Be Enlisted As A Country Artist?


Why is Lil Nas X finding it hard to gain acceptance in the world of mainstream country mirrors? Influential black artists found it difficult to get airplay on country radio.

Lil Nas X's viral country rap hit "Old Town Road" soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Nas X now has the ultimate revenge story as his song, "Old Town Road" which was pulled from Billboards country charts for not being country enough, is now the no.1 single in the country.

In a world where everything is racist, this goes to show how even the music industry has discrimination. Lil Nas X has introduced African Americans to a new sound of Country music which they have come to love.

Who am I to tell Billboard that "Old Town Road" is Country and deserves it's spot. Many blacks of today's generation didn't even know who Billy Ray Cirus was unless you talk about Miley Cirus.

We can now say that all cultures from hip-hop to country can now swing to a new tempo. Times are changing and I do believe that this may be the correct way to go. This vote this song even higher. Let it be known that more will come for its spot in country music billboards.
