Like, he interrupted our studio session, stood on a table and started rapping. Prior to this, Jay had spoken about his relationship with West on the Rap Radar Podcast.
“What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my wife and my kids into it… Like, Kanye is my little brother. He even made a song called ‘Big Brother,” the rapper said.
He raps: “Only thing I want to know is why I get looked over /I guess I'll understand when I get older /Big brother saw me at the bottom of the totem /Now I'm on the top and everybody on the scrotum.” Jay opened up about the backstory behind Kanye's “Big Brother” lyrics during an interview, clarifying that he had already given Kanye four tickets before the Chicago native asked for two more.
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.

Jay recently released his favorite songs of 2019 playlist on his streaming service Tidal, and Kanye's tune Follow God from his latest album, Jesus Is King, made the cut at number 23.

After years of being friends, the two rappers first started feuding publicly in 2016 when Kanye ranted on stage about Jay and Beyoncé's behavior, which included him famously calling out the couple for skipping his and Kim Kardashian’s wedding.

But sources close to both stars maintain the two sides reached an agreement on the Tidal dispute earlier this year, according to TMZ. Some other artists to make the list included: Money On The Grave by Drake and Rick Ross, Highest In The Room by Travis Scott, sister-in-law Orange's songs Alameda and Bin, as well as his wife Beyoncé's tune, Already, she did with Shasta Wale and Major Lazer.
