Jay-Z blames “unacceptable things” for Kanye West beef

Hip-Hop’s most heartbreaking break-up, the fallout between Jay-Z and Kanye West, came as a result of the “underlying competition” between the rap heavyweights….If you let HOV tell it.

While chopping I️t up with T, The New York Times Style Magazine, the 47-year-old eight-time 2018 Grammy nominee spilled guts on his “complicated” relationship with Ye after the “Famous” emcee exposed their personal drama during a tirade at the Saint Pablo tour back in November 2016.

“(I talked to) Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he’s my brother. I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us,” Jigga said, before blaming the complexities of their brotherhood on competitiveness.

“You know—Kanye came into this business on my label. So, I’ve always been like his big brother. And we’re both entertainers,” Jay-Z explained. “It’s always been like a little underlying competition with your big brother. And we both love and respect each other’s art, too. So, it’s like, we both—everyone wants to be the greatest in the world. You know what I’m saying? And then there’s like a lot of other factors that play in it. But it’s gonna—we gonna always be good.”

He continued, “[Kanye is ] a very compassionate person. And a lot of times he gets in trouble trying to help others,” he continued. “So I can identify with it. It’s just that there’s certain things that happened that’s not really acceptable to me.”

Confirming that there’s still tension between him and Kim Kardashian’s Chicago bred hubby—who, during his public rant, shamed Jay-Z and Beyonce for manipulating the entertainment industry in their favor and for failing to check in on his family after Kim’s Paris robbery—the 4:44 mastermind openly fantasized about a moment in the future where they’ll both let bygones be bygones.

pefully when we’re 89 we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that. You know what I’m saying? There’s gonna be complications in the relationship that we have to get through. And the only way to get through that is we sit down and have a dialogue and say, ‘These are the things that I’m uncomfortable with. These are the things that are unacceptable to me. This is what I feel.’ I’m sure he feels that I’ve done things to him as well,” Jay served.

Despite the beef, the Brooklyn born legend acknowledged the “genuine love” between he and Kanye, noting that they just need to talk through their issues.

Elsewhere, HOVA spoke on his and Beyoncé’s confessional albums—4:44 and Lemonade, respectively— saying regardless of the sensitive and painful topics approached on both LPs, he and his wifey viewed their individual creations as therapeutic remedies for their shared heartache.

“…We were using our art almost like a therapy session,” he said, adding the projects made both he and his “Sorry” singing spouse, “… both very, very uncomfortable, but […] the best place in the, you know, hurricane is like in the middle of it.”

He said, “That’s where we were sitting. And it was uncomfortable. And we had a lot of conversations. You know. [I was] really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day we really have a healthy respect for one another’s craft. I think she’s amazing. You know, most people walk away, and like divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves. The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself.”
