Two weeks after the release of Remy Ma’s Nicki Minaj diss track, “shETHER,” the song could no longer be found on Soundcloud or heard on the radio. Rumors began to spread that the song — which uses the beat from Nas’ famous diss “Ether” — had been banned by the rapper himself.

Although there is some truth to the rumor, it’s actually not Nas’ fault. According to TMZ, the “One Mic” performer had no problem with Remy Ma using his beat, it was his record label, Universal Music Publishing, that was upset.

The website reports that Remy Ma’s label may not have gotten clearance to use the song, which led Universal to remove the song from Soundcloud and radio stations. TMZ’s sources say the “All the Way Up” rapper isn’t even allowed to perform the song live anymore.

As for Nas, insiders close to the artist are “adamant” that he would not step in to put an end to the beef seeing as he is a huge fan of hip-hop feuds. And while Remy may no longer be able to perform the song, that may not be a problem for her.

During a recent appearance on the Buzzfeed podcast, Another Round, Remy Ma revealed she wasn’t proud of her diss. “It just bothers me that this record that I put out where it’s literally picking apart a female went so viral, and every media outlet wants to talk about it and pick it up,” the hip-hop artist said, revealing she rather would have rather worked together with Nicki. “I feel like we could’ve done the same thing working together.”

The rapper also said she didn’t “condone or recommend the tearing down of another female” but felt the diss song was necessary. “However, in the event that you piss me off and we become arch enemies, run for cover,” she added.
