In an interview with Rap Rader, Jay-Z gives more details about his current riff with Kanye West . “We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me.” he said in the interview. Jay-Z said in the past Kanye’s honesty has helped them get pass their disagreements, but this time Kanye crossed the line. “He knows he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. And I know he knows, ’cause we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many.” Jay-Z admitted. Problems were highlighted between the two during Kanye’s last tour when he went on a rant talking about Jay Z, Beyonce and other things. Jay-Z addressed the issue on his album 4:44 on a song called ‘Kill Jay-Z.’ when he said (“But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye/You gave him 20 million without blinkin’/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?.”

They continued by saying   “Without that context, we understand the optics could be portrayed as offensive, and we apologize.”
