Remy Ma’s fiery Nicki Minaj diss, “ShEther” got pulled from the airwaves not too long after it began selling. Nas say he isn’t responsible for the song getting pulled, but actually Universal Music Publishing.
It all comes down to the publishing and the use of Esco’s “Ether” instrumental.
Sources connected to the rapper tell TMZ … Nas has no beef with Remy using his beat to diss Nicki Minaj in “shETHER” … and it was Universal — which owns the song — that made a stink after Remy jacked the beat, slapped it on her track and sold it without its permission.
Remy’s label may have dropped the ball by not getting the all clear. The track’s since been taken off Sound Cloud and radio. Sources tell us Remy’s been told she can’t even perform the track.
We’re told Universal sprung into action after “shETHER” hit No. 2 on iTunes … though we checked and you can still download the track, but that could quickly change.
Nas sources are adamant the rapper would NEVER step into a blistering showdown. In fact … Nas is a fan of battle raps and appreciates the culture. Nas, of course, had one of the most epic beefs with Jay Z.
As for Nicki Minaj, she finally responded with a track called “No Frauds” and it was definitely no “ShEther.”
