The rapper also talked about a possible ‘Watch the Throne’ album follow-up
Kanye West went on a rant against Jay Z on stage in Seattle this week.
The 39-year-old rapper – who had previously worked with Jay Z on the album Watch the Throne and toured together – revealed there will not be a follow-up album due to conflicts with Apple. The company has a close relationship with the likes of Drake and Jay Z’s own streaming service, Tidal.
He told fans: “Let me tell y’all something. There will never be a ‘Watch The Throne 2‘. That’s the reason I wasn’t on this song.
I wasn’t on the song cause of Hov. ‘Cause of some Tidal/Apple bulls**t. And that s**t be getting me tight every time I perform this motherf***er.
“I start freestylin’ to it. Jay thought of a couple lines, I said, ‘Man, just go ahead and throw that on there, [Drake] would be so surprised he probably wouldn’t expect you to be on there. And we sent it back to him. And he was like, ‘Oh s**t, the Throne is on this s**t.’
Then Jay thought about it, and out of respect for Meek Mill he didn’t want to be on the track. And I said, ‘Look, I’ll call Drake, I’ll call Meek, I’ll call y’all, we gotta squash this s**t, we gotta let people have this song.’ But then it went into some political s**t, some s**t about percentages on songs.”
And the rapper is also bothered because the 99 Problems hitmaker didn’t visit Kim after she was robbed at gunpoint earlier this month. Furthermore, West claimed that his own three children have never had the chance to meet Jay’s little girl and play together.
He continued by adding: “Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say, ‘How you feelin?’ You wanna know how I’m feelin? Come by the house.
Bring the kids by the house like we’re brothers. Let’s sit down. I can’t take this s**t bro. Our kids have never even played together.”
