The use of the beat further highlights how Warren held no punches in her criticism against Bloomberg.

The Nevada Democratic debate took place Wednesday night, and although every presidential candidate directed hits at Mike Bloomberg, there was one in particular whose criticisms of the former New York City mayor were so scathing that someone thought they deserved to be soundtracked by Nas‘ “Ether.”

Elizabeth Warren interjected in the middle of a discussion between Bernie Sanders and Bloomberg over electability, when she offered her takedown of the latter.

“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against — a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians,” Warren said “And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Michael Bloomberg.”

“Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women, and of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop-and-frisk,” she added.

The video of the “Ether” beat accompanying Warren’s remarks seems to have been made by Twitter user @AyoTristan.

The word “ether” has also been trending on Twitter following the clip being posted and going viral, having received 2.7 million views.
