Nas Still Texts Jay-Z About Diss Track “Takeover”
On his new song “Thun” from King’s Disease III, Nas revealed that he and Jay-Z still joke about their past beef over text messages. The third entry in his King’s Disease series of albums, which are produced by Hit-Boy, sees Nas reflect on his feud with Hov throughout the ‘90s up to 2005, when they officially squashed their issues.
"No beef or rivals, they playing ‘Ether’ on TIDAL/Brothers can do anything when they decide to,” he raps on the track. “In a Range Rover, dissecting bars from ‘Takeover’/Sometimes I text Hova like, ‘N***a, this ain’t over,’ laughing."
The legendary emcees clashed both on and off record for years, which eventually led up classic diss tracks “Takeover” and “Ether.” The two squashed the beef they had when they performed together at a surprise concert.
