Watch Old Footage of Nas Hanging A Jay-Z effigy

Taking things to another level Nas had ordered a special effects team to design a Jay-Z effigy and gallows in which he planned to use for his Hot 97 Summer Jam performance, staging a Jay-Z hanging.

This prompted Nas to respond with his 'Stillmatic' freestyle and 'Ether'. Jay-Z followed with 'Supa Ugly'.
