Some speculated about this a long time ago, but it seems as the source of the beef between Kanye and Jay-Z starts with Kim and ends with Beyonce. It’s no secret that it always seemed as though Beyonce and Jay-Z were faking the acceptance of Kim into the crew, but now that Jay-Z released 4:44, we’re getting the full story according to Complex.
According to Page Six, Jay’s animosity comes from a series of rants that Kanye went on during his Saint Pablo Tour last year when Kanye spoke ill of Jay and his family. From his floating stage during an Inglewood, California show last October, Kanye told the sold-out audience: “Beyoncé, I was hurt. I went down seven years on behalf of your fake s - - t” and “Jay-Z. Call me bro, you still ain’t call me. I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head.”
In another rant, this time at a concert in Seattle, Kanye explained he wasn’t on “Pop Style” because “of Hov. Because of some Tidal/Apple bullshit,” and also claimed “there will never be a Watch the Throne 2.” Kanye ended the rant by adding that “our kids ain’t never even played together.”
Kim and Beyonce never seemed to hit it off either. Kanye didn’t appreciate that. Jay-Z and Beyonce chose not to even attend Kim and Kanye’s wedding, which would be another source of contention. Either way, it looks like there won’t be any holiday picnic pics of the two couples anytime soon.
