Just when things between Kanye West and Jay-Z looked frostier than the Night King’s panties on Game of Thrones, it appears the rappers are ready to let bygones be bygones and get back to their favorite activity: making a shitload of cash.
A source, who presumably went by the name of Tris Brenner, told TMZ that Kanye has reached out to Jay-Z to settle their shit. Yeezy ditched Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service because he claimed the company owed him more than $3 million. That, and he was probably weirded out by Madonna’s antics when they reenacted the signing of the Declaration of Independence at its launch. Benjamin Franklin did NOT throw his leg up on the table like that, so why did Madge think she could?!
Jay has previously said he was willing to play the “I don’t know her” card while Kanye went on tirades about him, but when he took to the stage to go off on Beyonce and Blue Ivy, that was when the shit began to stink.
While Beyonce probably did her normal shocked-but-secretly-loving-the-press look (maybe she does steal from Taylor Swift after all?), Jay went HAM and some thought he was shooting daggers at Kanye in the song “Kill Jay Z.” Kanye’s people think Jay should cut him some slack, as he clearly wasn’t in his right mind last fall. I mean, along with the vent, he was also showing up to Trump Tower to meet with the then-president-elect. And are we forgetting that he is still married to a Kardashian?!
Sources added that the Tidal shit is getting hashed out, but money isn’t the issue (“Yeah, okay,” said the ATM). What’s important is mending fences, which appears to be happening. Considering the years spent where Kanye was the only accessory in the Carter-Knowles house valued more than the diva fan and team of 15 professional Photoshoppers, it seems like the Prodigal Son will more than be allowed to return. Even if he does demand just as much time in front of the diva fan as Queen B!
