Jay-Z vs. Nas and Carmen Bryan
When Jay-Z first took shots at Nas on “Takeover,” he coyly alluded to sleeping with Carmen Bryan, the mother of Nas’ daughter Destiny. “You know who, did you know what with you know who, let’s keep that between me and you,” he muttered. But after Nas dropped the atomic bomb that was “Ether,” Hov showed out while he was against the ropes. He released “Super Ugly,” a track that dragged Bryan’s name through the mud, accusing her of sleeping with Jay and all-star baller Allen Iverson. “I came in your Bentley back seat, skeeted in your Jeep, left condoms on your baby seat,” Jay snapped.
After Jay-Z’s mother heard the song, she made her son publicly apologize for the lyrics.
