After almost a year of feuding are Kanye West and Jay-Z ready to bury the hatchet and call a truce?
TMZ is reporting that West recently reached out to his one-time pal and asked for a face-to-face sit down. Apparently, the Fade singer wants to hash things out with his mentor, even though he is the one that started the feud last fall.
West decided to throw shade at Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and little Blue Ivy during one of his concerts. He basically bashed the entire Carter family, but especially Jay-Z for not contacting him after his wife Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
For his part the 4:44 rapper did not respond to West’s rant, he simply used music to express his thoughts. When his album was released, he called out his protégé in the song Kill Jay Z. However, no one from the Carter camp has even publicly acknowledged the rift between the one-time friends.
Along with their personal feud, the two men are also embroiled in a business dispute. Earlier this summer West decided to part ways with Tidal, Jay-Z’s streaming service. It is being reported that this financial dispute could be worth millions of dollars to both parties.
However, TMZ reports that it is not the money or the business dealings that have kept Kanye West and Jay-Z feuding for all these months. It is the personal attacks. Sources close to both men believe that West was not in a right state of mind when he went on his rant about the Carter family. After all, it happened right before the singer had his public breakdown and was hospitalized. That doesn’t make West’s actions OK, but could help explain his mindset at the time.
As for whether or not there is going to be a face-to-face sit-down, that remains to be seen. These two had a friendship and business relationship for years, and it has not always been a love fest. In fact, it is rumored they have had a love hate relationship since day one.
