Kanye and Jay's rift took another turn a few days after the release of 4:44. West reportedly alleged that the company owes him more than $3 million, and he has reportedly attempted to end his agreement with the music service only to have the company threaten to sue him for breach of contract, according to TMZ.
In a candid interview with Dean Banquet for T, The New York Lifestyle Magazine, Jay revealed that he's back on speaking terms with Kanye. “ Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he's my brother,” the 47-year-old told the magazine in November 2017.
A major celeb like West leaving the Tidal family probably would not be good for business, and if these reports prove true, it's hard to imagine the stars' relationship could remain during a contentious legal battle. Fans have gotten pretty used to great things coming from this duo; their co-produced album Watch The Throne was a hit in 2011.

He even made a song called ‘Big Brother,” the rapper said. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem… You know it’s a problem because me and him would have been talked about it, been resolved our issues.
Kanye West set off a tidal wave of reactions after the rap impresario shared a candid confession about his relationship with Jay-Z, which has wavered over the years. This past Saturday (August 8) marked the nine-year anniversary since Kanye and HOV joined musical forces to unleash their Grammy-winning album, Watch the Throne.
Brian van der Drug Kanye has aired his dirty laundry once again, this time during his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour stop in Seattle. However, the target of his diatribe was a surprise to concert attendees; the man he took aim at was none other than long-time bestie Jazz.
There have long been rumors of animosity between the two streaming services and, apparently, whatever beef there it been strong enough to test the bond of Jay and ‘Ye’s friendship. Because… I wasn’t on this song because of HOV.
Jay thought of a couple lines, I said, ‘Man, just go ahead and throw that on there, would be so surprised he probably wouldn’t expect you to be on there,'” Kanye said. And he was like, ‘Oh sh-t, the Throne is on this sh-t.’ Then Jay thought about it, and out of respect for Meek Mill he didn’t want to be on the track.

That line about the red hat is a reference to Kanye and Donald Trump's relationship and his 'Make America Great Again' hat, right?
