    Now I love Nas, hes in my top 5 no issue. But this song is overrated as f---, I never understood the hype. Takeover is wayy better and it does it all in one verse. This is just a bunch of middle school insults and the worst thing it accuses is of jay using biggie rhymes.

    What do you ni:capitalb::capitalb:as think?

    Yes. I mean it’s good but like.... it’s hardly as scathing as people make it out to be. It got that reputation simply because Nas was the underdog & no one expected him to come back like that after Takeover.

    I liked it a lot years ago, but yeah nowadays I think it's kinda overrated and nothing special other than a few lines really.

    “Left condoms on your baby seat” singlehandedly won the battle.

    But in a weird way, the Ether beat makes it a legendary diss track even though I ageee, the lyrics aren’t as scathing as you would think.

    Ether is really just Nas calling him
    gay for the most part, he doesn’t really hit Jay with anything of substance until the final verse. It’s not a bad diss, but it’s definitely not as good as Takeover.

    I dont dislike the song, btw. The beat is a classic, just think it isnt very hard hitting.

    I think if Jay didnt admit to losing then it wouldnt be as one sided in popular opinion.

    Does anyone really rate Back to Back that highly? Meek’s loss was more to do with the fact he botched his reply than anything Drake said about him.

    I feel like only kids rate it that high or people that havent been following hip hop that long.
