Who is the best rapper of all time?
Back to question

Nas defeated Jay Z with diss track “Ether”

After years of feuding between Nas and Jay Z, the former released his diss track, "Ether." The public subsequently crowned him the winner of their battle.

The Argument

Nas' ability to win a feud against one of the most successful rappers of all time demonstrates his remarkable skill. Both Jay Z and Nas released diss tracks about each other. In a poll from the Hot 97 radio station, 58% of listeners said they preferred Nas' track, "Ether," over Jay Z's "Supa Ugly."[1] Jay Z may be a business mogul, but any crown he may have held for the best rapper of all time now belongs to Nas.

Counter arguments

Nas' ability to defeat Jay Z with "Ether" demonstrates only that Nas is better than Jay Z, not that Nas is the best rapper of all time.
