Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones aka Nas (American Rapper) b.sept 14, 1973. Had an ongoing beef with fellow New York rapper Jay-Z. Which began from Memphis Bleek (Rapper affiliated with Jay-Z), having references to Nas from his debut album 'Coming of Age'
Nas retaliated in 1999 on his album, Nastradamus.
This carried on and the diss record, Ether, was released on Nas's album 'Stillmatic' in December 2001.
This diss track, is widely recognised as one of the best of it's kind throwing insults at Nas's rival left, right and centre.
This rivalry ended in 2005, where Jay-Z brought Nas onstage and they performed together.
Recently, Nas basically said on Kanye West's "We Major" track, that he's a free artist.
Early in 2006, he signed to Jay-Z's Rocafella music label.
Even though the rivalry ended, without violence, the term is still used. This is because is the raw energy and hatered they had for eachother.
- Most polls state that Nas won most votes
Tyson got ethered!
- Danny Williams knocked out Mike Tyson
Any situation where you think somebody won a battle, where it is open to discussion. But usually is only used when there is a clear cut winner.
