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.
In a text message exchange that Kanye shared to Twitter, the “Famous” rapper also offered a new dig at Taylor Swift. Just one day later, Kanye doubled down on his assertions with a graphic tweet on September 16.
This one featured Ye literally peeing on his prized Grammy Award, as he continued to voice his desire to be released from his recording contracts with his publisher, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and his label, Universal Music Group. By December 2019, the two were seen at Sean ‘Daddy’ Combs 50th birthday party together, enjoying their time like old confidants.
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.
While discussing his new religion, Kanye would detail that he has found God’s sense of humor, and it led him to hopefully get a phone call from Drake. The hope is to put the beef centered on Dizzy and Pusha T but also brought in West, to bed.
With Kanye West promising that two new albums are on the horizon (one solo project potentially named Gandhi and Good A** Job with Chance The Rapper), it's only natural for him to make headlines elsewhere as dedicated and skeptical fans alike await the music. First, Ye started off the day with a video rant that targeted Drake and whoever else had things to say about his wife, Kim Kardashian- West.
However, time heals all wounds, so we're glad to see the power friendship is still in good standing. “I ain’t gone front in times of feeling super as artist, receiving little to no real push from the ‘machine,’ constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked, I mean the list on and on lol,” she wrote on Friday (Dec. 4).
She put the Grammys on blast last month for snubbing female R&B singers, and previously spoke out about the mishandling of the rollout of her debut album, K.T.S.E. After catching backlash for tweeting a YouTube video questioning the ingredients of a COVID-19 vaccine, Letitia Wright went back to social media on Friday (Dec. 4) to explain her reasoning.
Some distrust dates stems from the 1932 Tuskegee Experiment where hundreds of Black men were unknowingly infected with syphilis. The “Legendary Ladies Night” will be streamed on IG Live and Apple Music.
She was also featured on Lloyd’s debut single “Southside,” “Into You” by Fabulous, and “Body on Me” with Nelly. The Oakland native boasts a slew of classic R&B singles like “(I Just Want It) To Be Over,” “I Should Have Cheated,” “Let It Go,” “I Remember,” “Heaven Sent,” “Love,” and “Trust.” As a featured artist, Cole appeared on Sean Paul’s “(When You Gonna) Give It Up to Me,” Young Jeezy’s “Dreaming,” and Daddy’s 2006 single “Last Night,” to name a few.
