Jay Z is finally speaking out about his feud with his former best friend, Kanye West. The rapper slammed Kanye for not only ranting about him during his concerts, but for also bringing in his wife Beyone and their daughter Blue Ivy into their mess, too.
Jay Z and Kanye’s beef began when the Empire State of Mind rapper stopped picking up his best friend’s phone calls. That’s because Kanye blasted Beyonce for agreeing to perform at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards only if she won a Video of the Year award. There were also reports that indicated Beyonce is no fan of Kim Kardashian.
She had no interest in associating with a reality television star like Kim or her family. That’s why she supposedly urged Jay Z to keep their distance from Kanye and his wife. To make matters worse, Kanye also blasted Jay Z and Beyonce for refusing to organize a play date for their daughter Blue Ivy and his daughter, North West.
Jay Z has finally responded to Kanye’s rant by telling his side of the story in the lyrics to his new song, ‘Kill Jay Z. After all, he can only stay quiet for so long. Jay Z also explained that he is not dissing Kanye, but just talking to himself in his song. He raps, “I know people backstab you, I feel bad too/ But this ‘f— everybody’ attitude ain’t natural/ But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe.”
But what hurts him the most is that Kanye had to drag Beyonce and Blue Ivy into their feud.
He told Rap Radar in an interview, “But what really hurt me, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. … We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me.”
So far Kanye West has not responded to Jay Z’s comments. As a matter of fact Kanye has been keeping a low profile altogether. But knowing how deeply hurt he is over their strained friendship, there’s a good chance that Kanye will have something to say about this sooner or later. He might even take the same route as Jay Z and incorporate his feelings into his lyrics.
