Perhaps for the first time ever, JAY-Z is opening up in an in-depth interview about his feud with Kanye West. Last fall, Ye went on a rant on stage his Saint Pablo tour calling out Hov and Beyonce. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper called out JAY and Beyonce for not calling him after Kim Kardashian robbery went down in Paris. He even accused the power couple of not letting their daughter Blue Ivy come to their house and play with their kids.
In an interview with Elliot Wilson and B. Dot on Rap Radar podcast, JAY-Z says that he and Kanye West always have issues, but the difference this time is that Ye brought his family into the feud. “What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it,” JAY-Z said (via Billboard). “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.”
JAY-Z added that Kanye West knows that he crossed the line this time and that this has been the longest feud they ever had. “He knows that he crossed the line, I know him,” Hov added. “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.”
Kanye West ended the concert after his impromptu rant and then a few days later he was hospitalized for a nervous breakdown.
