In December of 2001, Nas released what is arguably the most popular diss record of all-time, Ether. While everyone applauded the Queens emcee for his lyrical slaughtering of his then arch-rival, Jay-Z, another man benefited even more from the record’s impact. That man is Harlem native Ron Browz. Eternally riding high off the song’s success, Browz has gone to great lengths to make sure nobody forgets who helmed its production. While still producing for other artists, he is currently focusing on his work as a solo artist, gearing up for the release a new mixtape project entitled Etherboy (we told you so). Having previously worked with 50 Cent, Ludacris, and the late Big L, Browz is no stranger to A-list talent; on a remixed version of his current single, Pop Champagne, he recruits fellows New Yorkers Jim Jones and Juelz Santana for a few non-autotuned guest verses.
