    Nas got f---ing murdered... I may prefer it over Takeover.. after this, how can anyone say Nas won?

    [Verse 2]
    Can't y'all see that he's fake, the rap version of T.D. Jakes
    Prophesizing on your CDs and tapes

    Won't break you a crumb of the little bit that he makes
    And this is with whom you want to place your faith

    I put dollars on mine, ask Columbine
    When the Twin Towers dropped, I was the first in line
    Donating proceeds off every ticket sold
    When I was out on the road, that's how you judge Hov, no?

    Ain't I supposed to be absorbed in myself?
    Every time there's a tragedy, I'm the first one to help

    They call me this misogynist, but they don't call me the dude
    To take his dollars to give gifts at the projects

    These dudes is all politics, depositing checks
    They put in they pocket, all you get in return is a lot of lip

    And y'all buy the s---, caught up in the hype
    Cause the n----- wear a kufi, it don't mean that he bright
    Cause you don't understand him, it don't mean that he nice
    It just means you don't understand all the bs that he write

    Is it "Oochie Wally Wally" or is it "One Mic"?
    Is it "Black Girl Lost" or shorty owe you for ice?

    I've been real all my life, they confuse it with conceit
    Since I will not lose, they try to help him cheat

    But I will not lose, for even in defeat
    There's a valuable lesson learned, so it evens up for me

    When the grass is cut, the snakes will show
    I gotta thank the little homie Nas for that though
    Saving me the hassle of speaking to half of these assholes

    And I'mma let karma catch up to Jaz-O, whoa
    I'm back before you had a chance to miss me
    My mama can't save you this time, n----s is history

    Who you know flow vicious as me?
    Yet so religiously, that's why they call me Hov

    I get the spoils cause the victor is me (me, n-----)
    You're an actor, you're not who you're depicted to be

    You street dreaming, all y'all n----s living through me
    I gave you life when n----s was forgetting you emcee

    I'm a legend, you should take a picture with me
    You should be happy to be in my presence, I should charge you a fee

    I'm Big Dog, Glenn Rob, listen God you a flea
    And the little homey Jungle is a garden to me
    What's the problem B? You not as hard as me
    n----- hard as we,n----- R O C, n-----

    That's why they follow me, they feel my pain and my agony, n-----
    I won't rest till you on one knee
    You want war then this war's gon' be, n-----
    Until you on one knee,you want war then this war's gon' be, n-----

    This was released about a year after the beef finished. Nas had already won at that point. This was Jay's attempt at trying to make sense of what happened while still harboring some salty feelings about it. Nas did his own recap with "Last Real n----- Alive", which I thought was a better song, plus he was speaking from the position of the victor and not the sore loser.

    Rap fans may have done of Nas the winner, but if we are realistic, Jay Z had the better disses with Takeover and Supa Ugly.

    "Takeover" was a good song but some of Jay's best lines weren't even true, ie when he broke down Nas' discography and not only botched the ratings but even the timeline. By the time "Supa Ugly" dropped, the damage was done and Nas had the momentum. As far as Jay's mother stepping in because of what he said in "Supa Ugly", I'd say it evens out when you consider how f----- up it is to go at someone when his mind is preoccupied with his dying mother.
