Drake and Meek Mill engaged in social media’s biggest Hip Hop beef in 2015. Meek was on the losing end of that battle after Drizzy released songs “Charged Up” and “Back To Back.”
But is Drake and Meek Mill’s rap beef on the same level as Jay Z and Nas’s historical battle? Rick Ross doesn’t think so.
Rick Ross denied any comparison after XXL Mag staff posed this question to him during their recent interview:
“You said Jay Z and Nas? Jay and Nas? An event in hip-hop? We might be from two different eras or something. We lost B.I.G. in that era. We lost 2Pac in that era. So to say, Jay and Nas when you discussing Drake and Meek, I think is disrespectful. That was an entirely different type of energy. That’s what I believe, unless I’m seeing something… I must be just, f-----’, I don’t know. But by the time I heard of the Meek and the Drake situation, um, you know they told me that Meek hadn’t dropped nothing real and Drake had let two records go. They told me, it was cool and I was like, that’s it. Moved on.”
Jay Z and Nas engaged in one of Hip Hop’s most epic rap battles known to man. Hov infamously took aim at Nas at Hot 97 FM’s 2001 Summer Jam when teasing his “Takeover” bars.
“Ask Nas, he don’t want it with Hov (No!!!!!)” he said to a stunned crowd.
Nas wasted no time getting Jay after releasing his “H To The OMO” record, which was a freestyle over Eric B & Rakim’s “Paid In Full” beat.
Jay went onto release the full Kanye West-produced “Takeover” joint.
Jay questioned Nas’s street credibility, rapping, “N***a, you ain’t lived it/You witnessed it from your folks’ pad/You scribbled it in your notepad and created your life/I showed you your first Tec, on tour with Large Professor/Then I heard your album about your Tec on the dresser.”
Nas then dropped the monstrous record “Ether.” The Queens Bridge rapper hit Jay with comical rhymes, rapping, “You a fan, a phony, a fake, a p***y, a Stan/I still whip your a--, you 36 in a karate class?/You Tae-Bo h*e, tryna work it out, you tryna get brolic.”
Jay then dropped the underrated “Supa Ugly” track where spoke on smashing Nas’s baby mother Carmen.
He raps, “Me and the boy AI got more in common than just balling and rhyming/Get it? More in Carmen/I came in your Bentley backseat, skeeted in your Jeep/Left condoms on your baby seat.”
God bless Hip Hop.
