‘You Brought My Family Into It, Now It’s a Problem’, JAY-Z Talks Kanye West Beef
JAY-Z talks Kanye West beef in a new interview, attributing it to West’s penchant for crossing the line whenever he is upset.
According to Billboard, Jay Z dropped the new interview on his Tidal site where he addressed controversial aspects of his 4:44 album, including his feud with the man who used to be his bestie, Kanye.
In case you missed how the beef started; Kanye West had blasted Jay Z and Beyonce during his Saint Pablo tour last November. From the video that surfaced, the Stronger rapper alleged that Beyonce insisted she would only perform at a certain award show if she is declared the winner of the Video of the Year award over him.
And that’s not all. Ye went on to call out Jay Z, daring the Roc Nation boss to ‘call him’ and talk to him like a man, a spin off of his anger that Jay Z didn’t care when his wife, Kim Kardashian, got robbed.
In his new album, Jay Z blasted Kanye in the track Kill Jay Z. He said:
“You walkin’ around like you invincible / You dropped outta school, you lost your principles / I know people backstab you, I feel bad, too / But this ‘fuck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural / But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe / But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye.”
Shortly after 4:44 arrived, reports confirmed that Kanye has left Tidal. Now Jay is addressing their feud.
“It’s not even about Kanye, it really isn’t,” Jay Z said of the track. “His name is there, just because it’s just the truth of what happened. But the whole point is ‘You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage.’ But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem,” he said.
Jay continued, “He knows that he crossed the line. I know him. 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, because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”
Jay Z also addressed his elevator scuffle with Solange, and noted that no matter that embarrassing moment, they all came out with three great albums inspired by that scuffle: Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Jay-Z’s 4:44 and Solange’s A Seat at the Table.
“I think we went into the elevator as great artists,” Jay-Z quipped. “I’ve always loved Solange’s music; I thought she was slept on until this last album… I think B made an incredible album before, a hundred of them.”
Now we wonder if Kanye West will ever speak.
