Jay-Z was offered “Ether” beat, says producer Ron Browz [Video]

Producer and artist Ron Browz aka The Ether Boy sat down with ThisIs50 and dropped a surprise gem, saying that Jay-Z could have had the beat that Nas used against him in one of the most memorable hip hop beefs of our time. Ron explained that he shopped the track that would eventually become “Ether” to various rappers, including Jay-Z.

Some history on the beef is that Jay-Z fired the initial shot with“Takeover” in 2001 to which Nas responded in full after some radio freestyles using the now infamous “Ether.” Check the interview below
