Jay Z and Nas

Jay Z and Nas engaged in arguably the most storied beef in hip hop history, which made their make-up all the more notable. After years of disses on record and in the media, Hov and Esco eventually squashed their issues, with Nas even signing to Def Jam when Jay was president. The two eventually collaborated multiple times, including on "Black Republican" and "Success."
