Are Jay Z and Kanye Beefing?

June 12, 2014 By:

Jay Z and Kanye West are legendary hip-hop brethren. Kanye respects Jay like a big brother, and even dedicated a song to him called (you guessed it) "Big Brother" on his 2007 album Graduation.

The two have recorded an album together, gone on tour together...they're basically BFF. So when Jay Z decided to skip his bro's blowout wedding with Kim K this year, we knew something was up.

Jay Z and Beyoncé apparently missed the wedding because of all the media surrounding it—including cameras for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." Rumor has it, Jay and Bey might have missed the wedding for an even more shocking reason: speculation of Jay Z cheating on Beyoncé with designer Rachel Roy (aka the reason behind the Solange elevator attack).

Although Jay Z sent Kimye a super expensive gold-dipped, diamond-corked bottle of Chianti as a wedding gift, it looks like Kanye is still furious that his supposed-to-be best man missed his special day. Ye performed at the X Games in Austin this past weekend, and made it loud and clear that he's not cool with Jay. 

In Kanye's "Blood on the Leaves," there is a lyric in which Ye raps "I don't give a damn if you used to talk to Jay Z. He ain't with you, he with Beyoncé, you need to stop actin' lazy." 

During his performance, he omitted Jay Z's name from the verse and in the line "stop actin' lazy," he replaced "lazy" with "crazy." Check out the video below, and skip to 3:02 to see the diss.


Whoa. It's not looking good for our hip-hop BFFs.
