Jay Z Discusses His Feud With Kanye West
“We would have been resolved our issues, but he know he crossed the line.”
Last year, just moments before cutting his Sacramento show short, Kanye West went on one his infamous rants, where he addressed longtime friend Jay Z and Beyonce, “Beyoncé, I was hurt! ‘Cause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me, and over ‘Hotline Bling.”
“In my opinion — now, don’t go tryin’ to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are — just to win.”
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!”
According to Jay Z, he and Ye used to get into arguments quite frequently, but they would always resolves their issues. But this time around, Hov says the “Ultralight Beam” rapper crossed the line when he brought his family into their feud.
During a new interview on Rap Radar’s podcast, Jay revealed the details behind their falling out. The 444 rapper told hosts Brian “B.Dot” Miller and Elliot Wilson, “Think about how I got to that point. It’s not even about Kanye. It really isn’t. His name is there, but it’s just the truth of what happened, but I’m sayin’ the whole point is you got hurt because this guy was talking about you on a stage, but what really hurt me is you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it.”
He continued, “Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it. Now that’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. He know it’s a problem ’cause me and him would have been talked about it. We would have been resolved our issues, but he know he crossed the line.”
“I know him. he knows. He knows … I know he knows because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements and we’ve had many. That’s part of who we are. That’s what I liked about him. He’s an honest person. He’s open and he’ll just say things, and he’s wrong a lot of times, but we’ll confront it.”
