It looks like the rappers’ beef is in the past now! On Friday, Jay Z opened up about his friendship with Kanye West during his appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.
‘Let me talk about one of your peers, Kanye West. Are we friends or are we not friends?’ the host asked the star.
‘That is my brother, we are beyond friends. Really, my little brother is Kanye. And like, [with] your little brother, things happen sometimes,’ Jay explained, noting that things sometimes happen even between super tight people.
‘It’s still your sibling forever, it is my brother. We do not come from the same mom and dad, but I watched Kanye from without an album. The thing that I respect about him is that he is the same person. He interrupted our studio session and stood on the table and started rapping, and we were like, ‘Could you please get down?’ And he was like, ‘No! I’m the savior of Chicago!’ He did not have a record,’ the rapper added.
As fans may remember, the feud between Kanye and Jay Z started back in 2016 when Yeezy slammed Jay and his superstar wife Beyonce during one of his concerts.
In 2017, he also left Tidal over a reported money dispute.
Jay Z has talked about his complicated friendship with Kanye before.
‘In the long relationship, you know, hopefully when we are 89 we look at this 6 months or whatever time, and we laugh at that. There is gonna be some complications in the relationship we have to get through. And the only way to get through that is to sit down and have a dialogue and say, ‘These are the things that I am uncomfortable with. These are the things unacceptable to me. This is what I feel.’ I am sure he feels that I have done things to him as well. I am not a perfect human being by no stretch.’ Jay stated during an interview last year.
