Amid coming off the high that was On The Run II, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken a few moments to thank "the hardest working crew in show business," the scholarship recipients and Bey even penned a loving sentiment to her "Clyde," whom she vowed to be his "hype man any day."
However, according to sources close to the Carters, they also had a few words about Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian. Prior to Ye deleting himself off of social media, the Chi-town emcee announced to all fans that the highly anticipated follow-up to him and Jay’s classic Watch The Throne was “coming soon.”
Ye ranted about Bey, allegedly not performing at a particular award show if she didn’t win “Video of the Year,” during the Sacramento stop on his Life of Pablo tour in 2016 and asked Jay to “talk to him like a man.” However, this wasn't the first or last time Ye would bring Jay up in a public forum.
The Brooklyn mogul addressed Yeezy's tirades on 4:44, particularly on the track "Kill Jay-Z." In a fiery verse, he mentions fronting Mr. West with $20 million to keep him on Tidal, Jay's co-owned streaming service, and alluding to Ye needing to take responsibility for his outlandish rants.
"But you ain't a saint, this ain't kumbaye/But you got hurt because you did cool by 'Ye/You gave him 20 million without blinkin'/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinkin'?/"F**k wrong with everybody?" is what you sayin'/But if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane..."
Yet now it seems that Bey and Jay are "sick" of Ye's political agenda, labeling it "bullsh*t." According to an anonymous source, "they're outraged over his political rants." Also, the Carters "think Kanye is a disgrace and is only doing this for attention." Despite the Wests openly discussing their future in politics, the Lemonade soulstress and her billionaire hubby "cannot associate themselves with them from this point forward."
