While the two competitors have moved on to record tracks together like this year’s “BBC,” the classic verbal competition is still one of the most debated topics in the history of the culture.

One of the voices of the new generation has offered his opinion about the outcome of the battle. Speaking with VladTV, TDE’s Schoolboy Q reveals his belief that Jigga came out on top.

“Honestly, I think Jay Z won,” said Schoolboy. “I mean Nas is my favorite rapper, but Jay Z, he was pretty scandalous.”

The Black Hippy member goes on to give his explanation for why Nas’ “Ether” is viewed as the winning blow in the bout by a lot of other observers.

“Jay is the best rapper and everybody don’t wanna believe that Jay – even though Nas is my favorite – Jay is like LeBron, Kobe, Jordan, people just wanna say no or hate,” offers Q. “He’s so good you got to hate him.”
