The rapper was asked about the lyrics of his new song "Kill Jay Z" which writes:
I know people backstab you, I feel bad too / But this ‘F--k 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 / You gave him 20 million without blinkin’ / He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f--k was he thinkin’? / ‘F--k wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’ / But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.
In reply, the rapper said it was not for insulting Kanye and was nothing about disrespecting. Instead, he said that it was about himself and how he felt.
He further said that some of the words spoken by the "Fade" rapper were very hurtful. Kanye West made comments about Jay Z, his wife Beyonce and also their kids during the concert. He said:
The whole point is, ‘You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage,” Jay Z said. “But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kid or 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.
Jay Z, however, referred Kanye as an honest man though said that he has crossed the line as he dragged his wife and children into the dispute.
Earlier this year, Kanye West left Tidal, the music streaming service due to the financial dispute with its founder Jay Z.
