Jay-Z's beef with Nas
Hip -op history is filled with beefs, but none was as fruitful for fans as the feud between Jay-Z and Queens rapper Nas. After several public snipes back and forth, partially fueled by Mobb Deep MC Prodigy, Jay-Z took Nas to task in the legendary diss track "The Takeover," with Nas firing back on multiple songs on his album "Stillmatic," and beyond. Fortunately, unlike the earlier beef between Biggie and Tupac's rival camps, Jigga and Nas patched things up in 2005, leading to collaborations, a tour together, and even Nas signing to Def Jam while Jay-Z was president. Now that's how you make nice.
