Everyone, this is big news. JAY-Z and Kanye West might be ending their forever feud, and we're all freaking out! Just imagine how beautiful the world would be if Kanye and JAY-Z were besties. They could collaborate on all sorts of magical tracks, roam the streets of NYC hand-in-hand, and even go on best friend dates in the hottest restaurants around town! This is a world I want to live in, y'all. So, is it true? Are Kanye West & JAY-Z friends again? Apparently, they're on their way.
Sources close to TMZ revealed that Kanye West's and JAY-Z's lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute in court. Oh, yes. Please settle in court and clear the air! We need this! Although $3.5 million seems like a lot, their feud has nothing to do with the cashola. The TMZ source claimed,
The Generals [Kanye and JAY] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake.
The infamous feud between Yeezy and Hova all began when Kanye joined Tidal, JAY-Z's music streaming business. West was supposedly outraged that the 1.5 million Tidal subscribers he brought in as a result of his album, The Life of Pablo, didn't result in the bonus he was promised. He also didn't receive funds for marketing efforts, including video production. Yikes. Tidal allegedly responded that West did not meet the full requirements of his contract. Soo... that's awkward.
Who really knows what's happening, but why are they fighting over $3.5 million? That's pocket change to these business moguls. This must be something deeper. Remember back in October of 2016, when Kanye vented to fans about JAY-Z during his Seattle tour? Yeah, that was intense.
He went on a rant all about JAY-Z being an absent friend after Kim K's robbery on Oct. 3, 2016, in Paris, saying,
Don't call me after the robbery and say, 'How you feelin'?' You wanna know how I'm feelin'? Come by the house… Bring the kids by the house like we brothers.
That's a big ol' burn! Kanye also mentioned his exclusion from Drake's “Pop Style,” a song originally featuring a verse by Kanye. He said,
I wasn't on the song because of Hova… Y'all didn't get what you were supposed to get on this song because of some Tidal/Apple b***shit.
The rapper blamed the never-ending drama on "some political sh*t." He also yelled, "can't take this sh*t, bro!" Yikes. Things went south pretty quickly.
So could JAY-Z be angry at Kanye over these claims, or is Hova still in deep turmoil with Beyoncé? Remember these lyrics about his marriage from the album 4:44?
And if my children knew, I don't even know what I would do. If they ain't look at me the same, I would prob'ly die with all the shame. 'You did what with who?' What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? 'You risked that for Blue?' I wasn't a superhero in your face. My heart breaks for the day I had to explain my mistakes.
Whoa. I will never forget that. Becky with the good hair, where are you? I will fight you.
Although the friendship between Kanye and JAY-Z seems hopeless, we can all wish and pray for its revival. Hey, maybe they'll even have a reunion tour! Kim K and Beyoncé can dance on stage with all of their babies, and the world can be a better place again. I would pay big money to see something like that. So, let's hope the never-ending lawsuit ends, and JAY-Z and Kanye can finally go on that best friend date. Take pics, you two!
