Album: The Blueprint
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
On “Ether”—one of the most vicious diss songs of all time—Nas took plenty shots at Jay-Z’s sexuality and street credibility, but the line that burned extra slow was, “Eminem murdered you on your own shit.”
Most of Jay-Z’s album The Blueprint was built on soul but for some reason he opted to rhyme over one of Eminem’s trademark haunted house tracks alongside Marshall himself. Maybe Jigga wanted to prove that he was the Best Rapper Alive by rocking with The Next Best Rapper In Line? Either way, Jay held his own but Marshall spazzed, spitting one of the best verses of his career and owned Hov on Hov’s best album.
Snoop Dogg also said that Eminem killed Jay so much that he doesn’t want to feature Em on his album EVER. You can listen to this legendary song below:
