Jay-Z Gives An Update on His Relationship with Kanye West

By  | 

While many were suspecting that Jay-Z and Kanye West could never be friendly again, Jay-Z is optimistic.

While promoting his latest studio album, “4:44,” Jay- Z confirmed that he was angered about the fact that Kanye dissed Beyonce during one of his tour stops.

And Kanye felt like Jay-Z was wrong not to make sure that their children played together.

Ye also had some issues with Tidal as well.

Despite that, Jay claims that he’s certain they will get back on the right track.

He opened up about their fractured friendship in an interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine.

I [talked to] Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he’s my brother. I love Kanye. It’s a complicated relationship with us.

Kanye came into this business on my label. So I’ve always been like his big brother. And we’re both entertainers. It’s always been like a little underlying competition with your big brother. And we both love and respect each other’s art, too. So it’s like, we both — everyone wants to be the greatest in the world. You know what I’m saying? And then there’s like a lot of other factors that play in it. But … we gonna always be good.

But that happens. In the long relationship, you know, hopefully when we’re 89 we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that.

There’s gonna be complications in the relationship that we have to get through. And the only way to get through that is we sit down and have a dialogue and say, ‘These are the things that I’m uncomfortable with. These are the things that are unacceptable to me. This is what I feel.’ I’m sure he feels that I’ve done things to him as well. … I’m not a perfect human being by no stretch.

    They will get back cool and Ye will do something disrespectful again because that’s his personality.

    Bottom line I don’t care what anybody says Kanye is jealous of Jay especially when it comes to his relationship with Bey. Sorry not sorry.

    Ultimately Kanye wants Kim in Bey’s inner circle. That’s what all this kicking and screaming is about.

    Kanye needs to accept that Kim and Bey will never be friends but that’s ok. It’s not the end of the world. His friendship with Jay has nothing to do with Bey and Kim.

    The clash of the egos…. period. They need to make up and keep making great memories with one another. Life is too short for beef.
