Question 2: What was it like recording "Ether" in the studio?
We won't use this entire list to dwell on the Nas/Jay-Z beef, but "Ether" is widely-regarded as either the first or second greatest diss track of all-time, depending of whether you ask a Jay or Nas fan their opinion. So it's only right that It Ain't Hard To Tell features a further analysis of the track as well as some of the details of the recording process. For instance, did you immediately choose the Ron Browz beat for "Ether," or did you try other beats as well? Was "Ether" the first diss track you recorded, or is there another one sitting on a hard drive somewhere that wasn't up to par? Did the disses come easily to you? How long had you been thinking some of the thoughts that you used in your verses? Is there anything you regret saying in the song? We've literally got a thousand questions to ask you about "Ether," but we'll sum them all up by simply asking: What was it like recording it? Your answer should tell us everything we need to know.
