Hey, Roommates! So, #KanyeWest has been showing out on social media for the past week only to have secretly filmed an hour and 45-minute-long interview with #CharlamagneThaGod. During the sit-down, West opened up about his relationship with #JayZ and #Beyoncé following his #StPabloTour rant—and how he felt about their absence from his wedding with wife #KimKardashian.
So, let’s just dive right into this Beyoncé and Jay-Z tea. First, Kanye addressed Jay-Z’s #KillJayZ lyric when he said, “You gave him 20 million without blinkin’/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*ck was he thinkin’?” Kanye tells Charlamagne that Jay did not gave him $20 million. Rather, Roc Nation gave him $20 million for a touring deal and Jay co-signed for him since he was in debt.
“The fact that it was worded that it came from him… I’m a very loyal, emotional artist… person,” Kanye said. “That made me feel like I owed more than just the money itself. You know, it just put me under a bit more of a kind of controlled situation.” Kanye added, “I’m only acting out of love. I don’t need to be controlled I just need to be inspired and informed.”
Kanye later focused in on the time Jay mentioned that he didn’t appreciate Kanye speaking about his family during the infamous St. Pablo Tour rant. Kanye and Jay have always referred to each other as brothers and said, “If we’re family… If we’re brothers and we’re family, then it’s my family. If we’re business associates then it’s too far.”
Y’all, can take what you want from that, but then Kanye goes on to express how hurt he was about his big brother and his wife not being present for his wedding. If we knew then what we know now, it appears as though this was the time Beyoncé and Jay were going through their Lemonade era 👀. Kanye mentions that he understood that they were “going through some things,” but says, “If it’s family you’re not gonna miss a wedding.”
Regardless, Kanye says that he and Jay are on great terms and that they text often although they haven’t physically seen each other in some time. When Charlamagne asked whether or not he had asked him why they didn’t attend, the rapper said he doesn’t think he ever asked him directly, rather through associates. Charlamagne suggested that he ask, because it was something Kanye clearly wants to know. Kanye replied, “I don’t think the answer fixes it.”
Y’all, that was literally the top of the iceberg. Ye spilled all sorts of tea about him feeling some type of way about #PresidentObama calling him a jackass in an interview, why he met with #DonaldTrump, the reason why he doesn’t eff with #Nike anymore, plus whether or not he felt some type of way about Virgil Abloh becoming the head of menswear at Louis Vuitton.
