Takeover is more listenable than Ether. IMO Ether is like a one time listen and i think you have to be an extreme Hov hater to listen to Ether frequently. Takeover just sounds alot better to me.

    I listen to Ether quite a bit. Wouldn't be surprised if it was one of my top 100 frequently played songs.

    I'm a big Nas fan but I don't consider myself a Hov hater... I just like hearing him get Ether'd. It's better than Takeover.

    Takeover has the better beat, but "Ether" has the better rhymes.

    Look at it like this: whenever someone gets beaten in a rap battle, what do people say? "He ethered him".

    That's sort of a superficial way to look at it, but it's a case where Nas came stronger lyrically.

    And why is this the only rap battle people ever talk about anymore? What about Ice Cube and Common? LL Cool J and Kool Moe Dee? Roxanne and... every rapper in New York.

    How did that even get started anyway? What was the reason? I remember she made a song in response to U.T.F.O., but they never actually knew her. Could someone help me with that?

    ether is a better diss, but takeover is musically superior

    to me... the beat on ether makes the song boring...
    i think Nas should've made the "🤬 with your soul like ether" and the "i will not lose" a longer chorus.

    takeover is a much better song, and arguably one of the best on blueprint

    ether is the better diss track though

    if i had the option, 9 tuimes out of 10 - i'd be banging takeover
