The two rappers collaborated on the 2011 album Watch The Throne, and were tight friends.
However, Jay and Ye have fallen out massively in the past few years, and now it’s been revealed why.
Speaking on the Rap Radar podcast, Jay, real name Shawn Carter, explained that Kanye angered him by bringing up Beyonce and Blue Ivy in one of his infamous on-stage rants.
The 47-year-old – who recently welcomed twins Sir and Rumi with wife Beyonce – said: ‘What really hurt me is, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother, he’s talked about me a hundred times, he made a song called Big Brother.
‘We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, and that’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. He knows it’s a problem, he knows that he crossed the line.’
Jay added: ‘We’ve never let this amount of space between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many. It’s part of who we are. That’s what I like about him, he’s an honest person, he’s open.’
During a concert last year, Kanye discussed his row with Jay, and claimed Beyonce was acting like a diva.
The 40-year-old said: ‘Beyonce, I was hurt because I heard you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video Of The Year over me and over Hotline Bling.
‘Jay Z, call me bro, you still ain’t call me. I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Talk to me like a man.
‘I can’t take this shit, bro! Our kids have never even played together.’
And apparently, it’s not just Jay and Ye that have fallen out – it’s Bey and Kim Kardashian too.
