Kanye West

Many accused Kanye West of disloyalty when he reached out to Nas, who was then arch rival to his boss and big bro, Jay-Z, to appear on his 2005 classic, "We Major." In reality, the song may have been an olive branch of sorts, as Nas and Hov reconciled later that year at Hov's "I Declare War" comeback concert in New Jersey.
