Shortly after Remy Ma's scathing diss track "shETHER" rose to number two on iTunes, Universal Music Publishing immediately took action and had it banned from the airwaves. It appears that Remy Ma's team may not have gone through the correct protocol in order to get the "Ether" beat released, which is owned by Universal. The track is no longer available on SoundCloud or radio, but it is still available on apple music, for now. Sources for TMZ claim that as a result of Remy Ma taking the beat, recording over it and profiting from it, she is prohibited from performing the song live as well. Sources also say Nas has no problem with Remy using the "Ether" beat, he feels like it encourages what rap is all about.
Interestingly enough, Universal Music Group is a parent company to Cash Money Records and Young Money Entertainment, the label that Nicki Minaj is signed to. Nicki Minaj recently dropped the diss track "No Frauds" featuring Drake and Lil Wayne and took to Instagram to address the beef that has the internet on fire. What are your thoughts on the ban? Let us know in the comments.
