Jay-Z and Nas’ beef has been well-documented in hip-hop history. Some of their best diss tracks, such as Jay-Z’s “Takeover” and Nas’ “Ether” brought an energy that can’t be matched on other records. But things almost got even more heated during Hot 97’s Summer Jam in 2002.
A couple of days ago a video surfaced of a robotics team making a Jay-Z figure that Nas originally intended to hang at Summer Jam 2002.
The shocking video shows a look-a-like Jay-Z puppet being prepared, along with a gallows, which Nas planned to use during his Hot 97 Summer Jam performance 10 years ago. Nas had commissioned a special-effects specialist to create the dummy which would be hung in his show, but the radio station stopped him from doing it.
