  10. Your point about Takeover vs. Ether is exactly right. Ether was trash all the way around. Takeover was a phenomenal record.

  39. just listened again and K Fox is SO out of place, she brings zero to Juan Ep, let her stick to the flashing light reports and thinkin Kanye is a rebel

    Greg | Nov 16, 2010 | Reply

  40. im glad niggas recognize that prodigy, at 1 point, was one of the illest niggas in the game. listen to shit like “back at you” “street life” and hell on earth and tell me different. i respect jay for acknowledging that.

    and takeover (1 verse at nas)shitted on ether(whole song at jay).

  48. Alright, finally got a chance to check it out.

    A-Mazing. Great questions. Pete, you and Jay sound like old buddies from back in the day.

    Highlights for me were

    Cipha cursing himself for quitting his job with Jay. Hilarious.

    “Can you reword that as ‘Fuck that bitch’?”. Classic.

    Jay acknowledging that Prodigy was ,at one stage, a great rapper.

    I’ll probably get flamed for this but I thought K-Fox was alright. Her resigned/disappointed “Well… good for you” when Jay says he’s never been let down when he’s met his heroes. Soo funny.

    Wow I really nerded out on this comment. Sorry guys.

  50. Jay Z talking about Dilla and saying he liked his beats.
    That made my year!!!!!

    Jay killed Nas Prodigy and Havoc.

  51. Dope interview

    Sorry Rosenberg, but Ether >>>> Takeover

    “you pop shit, apologize nigga, just ask Kiss…”

    ATB | Dec 6, 2010 | Reply

  52. 9th Wonder’s version of Ether >>>>>>>>>>> the Takeover beat >>> the Ether beat

    lyrically, Ether was better.

    and I wished Jay rapped on a Dilla beat and that Big L was still living.

  53. @fuck shotgun suge for dissing proof (rip) @ATB

    Ether was bullshit. The reason why Jay destroyed Nas P ans Havoc so badly is that none of them had no real dirt on Jay

    97% of the time Jay spoke about how their careers FACT or their personal lives FACT

    97% of the time Nas P ans Havoc were on some gun play shit dissing Jay cause they had nothing on him. Their lyrics reminded me of a WWE match FAKE. Example

    “I embrace y’all with napalm Blows up, no guts, left chest, face gone” LIE

    “Burner at the side of your dome, come outta my throne, I got this” BUT JAY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A BIGGER ARTIST THAN NAS

    “My child, I’ve watched you grow up to be famous And now I smile like a proud dad, watching his only son that made it” ???????? THEY WERE NOT FRIENDS BEFORE THE BEEF

    “In ’88 you was getting chased through your building
    Calling my crib and I ain’t even give you my numbers” IF THATS EVEN TRUE, NOBODY CARES. EVERYBODY KNOWS JAY AS THE ARTIST NOT THE BOY HE WAS AT 15 YEARS OLD

    “Put it together, I rock hoes, y’all rock fellas” And since you infatuated with sayin tha gay shit
    Yes u was kissin my dick when u was kissin that bitch

    “Compared to Beans you wack” DONT WANT TO COMMENT ON HOW DUMB THAT IS

    Rubbish. I could go on and on with these lies.

    Now LISTEN to Takeover and Super Ugly properly.
