The fact that Jay-Z and Kanye West have been feuding is no longer a secret for anyone. It all started with a song released by Jay-Z, which dissed Kanye and said that the famous rapper was actually insane. As imagined, Kanye was not happy with this. Related or not, the rapper decided to sue Tidal, Jay’s company, seeking some money he is allegedly owed.
But what caused this feud between Kanye and Jay-Z, who were always known to have been friends? Well, it seems that it all started with the public rant that Kanye had last year in the middle of a concert. It seems that Jay-Z did not forget or forgive Kanye for that, and he might think that the rapper’s medical condition was not an excuse for the comments Kanye made about him and his wife Beyonce.
TMZ reported that Jay-Z was extremely furious with Kanye when he made certain claims about Beyonce on stage and then about himself. The event happened on November 19th in Sacramento. Kanye basically called out Jay-Z for shutting him out of his life. Jay-Z made no comments after that and it seems that now, more than half a year later, he decided to diss Kanye in his new single Kill Jay Z.
In his song, Jay Z claims that “I know people backstab you I felt bad too. But this f*** everybody attitude ain’t natural. But you ain’t a saint, this ain’t kumbaye. But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye. You gave him $20 million without blinkin’. He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*** was he thinking’? f*** wrong with everybody is what you sayin’. But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.”
An insider allegedly close to Kanye said that the famous rapper understands that Jay-Z might be upset. “Kanye was days away from going to a psych ward with some really serious mental issues. We get why he [Jay] was upset, but give Kanye a break,” the source said. There is no official comment for the moment from the two, so it is yet to see how far things will go.
