(TIML MUSIC) Ok so the Jay Z-Nas beef is arguably the greatest in rap history. It escalated with Hov calling out Nas in ‘Takeover’, then Nas came full force with ‘Ether’. Jay responded with ‘Super Ugly’, a freestyle over ‘Got Ur Self A…’ and “Bad Intentions.’
However, Hov’s Roc-A-Fella partner Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke wanted Jay’s freestyle to be over the beat of the classic diss song ‘The Bridge Is Over’.
That would make a lot of sense, since on the original ‘The Bridge Is Over’ KRS-One was coming for rappers from the Queensbridge project –– where Nas also famously hails.
Biggs explained why it didn’t happen in an interview with Vlad TV. “I [told Jay Z]‘Yo, ‘The Bridge Is Over.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, that’s it.’ But when we called down to the studio, ‘Super Ugly’already went to Hot 97. So, they already started playing it so it was already, you know, too late.”
According to Biggs, Jay would never even lay a verse over ‘The Bridge Is Over”s beat.
Do you think the Nas/Hov beef would be viewed differently if Jay had jumped on ‘The Bridge Is Over’? Sound off below!!!
