Friction between Jay Z and Kanye West?


The rumor mill is spinning overtime with speculation that there is a riff happening with Jay Z and Kanye West.

There are three very key things that lead observers to believe that things aren’t currently kosher between Hov and Yeezy. At this point, it’s lots of speculation, but when you look at the following “issues” supposedly happening between the two, the possibility of it all isn’t far fetched.

First of all, almost everyone believes that Kanye still feels a way about Jay and Bey not attending his recent wedding to Kim Kardashian. It’s common knowledge that Kanye feels very deeply, so for his “big brother” to have missed such an important day in his life, well…it’s very plausible that there could be tension there.

Secondly, Kanye recently performed at the  X Music festival in Austin. During his set Kanye performed three different songs that name drops Jay, but all three times Yeezy failed to say his name. Take his performance of “Blood On The Leaves” from the Yeezus album. In the song, ‘Ye raps “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay Z. He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin’ lazy”. But during the Austin performance he raps “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to … . He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin crazy”.

And the final piece of the puzzle is that Jay is irritated with Kanye for trying to give him marriage advice after the Met Gala incident with Solange. According to a source close to the matter:

“Jay thought it was laughable that Kanye was trying to give him tips when he’s only been hitched two minutes. His jaw dropped to the ground when he got the call. Kanye said he thinks Jay needs to stay focused on his marriage, ignore the negativity surrounding them right now and told him to ‘take care of business’. Despite the fact Jay agreed with the sentiment, he thought it was ridiculous that Kanye was trying to act like he knew it all.”

Let’s just hope this is all a crazy rumor that is spinning out of control and that The Throne is indeed intact and will put these notions to bed soon.

    Lets not suck the dude dry with a lot of negativity…He seems happy now and iam happy for him, beautiful new unit he has and it takes a lot of humility for a man to publicly express gratitude for what that fam has added to his situation. Something i can learn from. Thank you.

    Ahhh close sources. The key in all the bullshit that media creates. Truth is we probably will never know what happened in that elevator. Only thing I dislike is that it is hilarious how jay is still the bad guy. He didnt hit her not once. He Most definitely could have if he wanted to but he did not. He let her be angry he got off and without touching her he is still the bad guy. lets reverse it. Lets say beyonce talked to another guy even kissed the fella. They got in the elevator solange says something and jay z does to her what she did to him. no more memes. jay z becomes a monster. he becomes a target for media and his empire is destroyed. Now he didnt hit the girl back hes a coward. for not hitting a women back half his size. for enduring that we call him a punk make memes and insult him. Even worse now hes a womanizer! hes cheating with various women and solange the attacker is the hero. Every week there are “sources close” that the media makes up to further discredit the man for not hitting a woman. Its the hardest thing in the world to be a woman and double standards for you guys suck but this is just wrong. This could have been an opportunity for wpmen to unite and congratulate him for his behavor maybe ask others to respond the same but every website made him look corny for not being aggressive. I think the world is just confused
