After Jay-Z and Nas squashed their long-standing beef in 2005, the world patiently awaited for their first ever collabo. It was sure to be a monumental, game changing occasion—one that they were certainly going to live up to. Then they dropped “Black Republicans,” which wasn't terrible but wasn't what we expected from two heavyweights.

Fast forward to 2007, Nas and Jay reconnected for redemption on “Success.” Over No I.D.'s blaring organs, Jay-Hova and God's Son waxed poetic about the problems, pitfalls, and headaches that come with success. Nas may have even made a thinly veiled reference to their uneasy alliance claiming, “Worst enemies wanna be my best friends.”

Meanwhile, Jay complained about drinking pricey champagne and eating expensive Chinese food. He even claimed he had more fun when he was piss poor. Hey Jay, if you're happy with your life of luxury, we'd love to switch places.
