Kanye West has explained how his feud with Jay-Z began in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God on iHeartRadio’s The Breakfast Club.
The Stronger rapper said that the feud with Jay-Z started when he and Beyonce did not attend his wedding to Kim Kardashian in 2014.
“I was hurt about them not coming to the wedding,” he revealed.
He did, however, address that Jay-Z and Beyonce were in the middle of a turbulent period in the relationship.
“I understand they were going through some things, but if it’s family, you’re not going to miss a wedding.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z have both respectively confirmed that Jay-Z had an affair, and it most likely occurred in 2014 around the time of Kim & Ye’s big wedding. That was the year that Solange Knowles was seen on CCTV attacking Jay Z in an elevator altercation after the Met Gala.
Despite being absent from the nuptials, Beyonce took to Instagram to share her congratulations and well wishes for the newlyweds writing: “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
The wedding was the first of many issues between Jay-Z and Kanye that caused the collaborators and tour mates to lose contact for a time.
On Jay-Z’s Album 4:44 he included a song called Kill Jay-Z in which he dragged Kanye for owing him $20 million.
Kanye hit back saying: “That concept that he gave me the money, that’s what frustrated me because actually the money he got it from Live Nation. It was a touring deal.”
Since the wedding and dis-track was released, the pair have allegedly made amends. Kanye told the radio show that although they haven’t seen each other, they text and have made up.
Jay-Z also confirmed that the two had made up saying: “That’s my brother. We’re beyond friends. Really, like, literally my little brother is Kanye. And like your little brother, things happen sometimes.”
Kanye has been all over headlines lately as his return to Twitter has not been without controversy. He has claimed that he was addicted to opioids and had liposuction in addition to claiming he believes that slavery was “a choice.”
