JayZ and a Healthy Obsession.........over Nas

We all respecrt JayZ as one of the greatest to ever do it but his obsession with Nas is a little curious...........

1. Reasonable Doubt (1996)..... JayZ sampled Nas on his track "Dead Presidents" "Im out for presidents to represent me"

2. Reasonable Doubt (1996).....JayZ name-drops Nas with the line A thing of beauty, watch me, body crazy
Tits firm like nature, Foxy, Nas and AZ" on the song "Sunshine"

3. In my Lifetime Vol.1 (1997).....JayZ uses the line "Im from where niggas pull your card and argue all day about who's the best emcee's Biggie, JayZ or Nas"......."Where Im From"

4. In my Lifetime Vol.1 (1997)..... samples his voice again for “Rap Game/Crack Game”.

5. The Dynasty Rock-La-Familia (2000)....he shouts out homage with "It's like '93, '94, bout the year
that Big and Mack dropped; and "Illmatic" rocked" on "This cant be Life"

6. Blueprint (2001)...JayZ uses the line "From the womb to the tomb from now till my doom drink armi' from one cup pass it around the room..thats the ritual" which is a reworking of the Nas line "From the womb to the tomb presume the unpredictable gun salute life rapidly thats the ritual" (off "Only built for Cuban Linx "Verbal Intercourse") on "Never Change"

including the infamous name-drop off of "Takeover" "ask Nas he dont want it with Hov"

Then Nas dropped ETHER......

7. Blueprint 2 (2002)...JayZ name-drops Nas on the track "Blueprint2" and admits defeat with the lines "But I will not lose, for even in defeat There's a valuable lesson learned, so it evens it up for me When the grass is cut, the snakes will show I gotta thank the little homie Nas for that though"

8. The Black album ( 2003).... JayZ uses the line "S.dots on my feet back my cypher complete which is a re-working of the Nas line "Suede Tim's on my feet make my cypher complete" (off Illmatics "The World is Yours") on "What more can I say".

Then JayZ retires from the mic but the obsession continues..........

(2005) Jayz brings Nas onstage at the "I Declare War" concert

(2006) JayZ signs Nas to DefJam records

(2007) Jayz does a duet with Nas on "American Gangster" where Nas semds the subliminal jab "Worst enemies wanna be my best friends, Best friends wanna be enemies like thats was in But I don't give a fuck walk inside the lions den
Take everybody’s chips, about to cash them in"....

2009) JayZ unveiled plans to do "Swagga Like Us part-2" feat. Nas, Andre 3000, Jeezy, and Kanye West off his upcoming comeback album Blueprint 3.
