Here is Nas diss track Ether
Fuck Jay Z!
Ayo, I know you ain’t talkin’ about me, dog
Fuck Jay z!
You been on my dick, nigga
You love my style, nigga
Fuck with your soul like ether
Will Teach you – the king- you know you
Not God’s Son across the belly
Lose, I prove you lost already
Brace yourself for the main event, y’all impatiently waitin’
It’s like an AIDS test, what’s the results? Not positive
Who’s the best: Pac, Nas and B.I.G? Ain’t no best
East, West, North, South, flossed out, greedy
I embrace y’all with napalm
Blows up, no guts left, chest/face gone
How could Nas be garbage” Semi – autos at your cartilage
Burner at the side of your done, come out of my throne!
I got this locked since 9-1, I am the truest
Name a rapper that I ain’t influenced
Gave y’all chapters, but now I keep my eyes on the Judas
With Hawaiian Sophie fame, kept my name in his music
Nas really went in on Jay Z!
