Kanye West revealed during the Seattle stop of his Saint Pablo tour last night that he and Jay Z are at odds right now — and it apparently started over some Tidal/Apple drama.
At one point, Ye told the crowd “Our kids have never even played together” — referring to North West and Blue Ivy.
According to Kanye, the rumored joint album between him and Drake didn’t happen because of his involvement with Jay’s Tidal.
“Y’all ain’t get what y’all was suppose to get with me and Drake because of some Tidal/Apple [Music] bulls–t,” West said. “This s–t got me tight, yo! Every time I perform [‘N—– in Paris’], I think about this s–t. I think about the politics and the bulls–t. I think about how hard I go for music, for art, for y’all, the fans. How hard we go.”
The Tidal/Apple issue is also the reason Jay Z didn’t want his verse included on Drake’s “Pop Style.” Jay didn’t want to upset Meek Mill — the boyfriend of Tidal-affiliated Nicki Minaj.
“It went into some Tidal/Apple political s–t about percentage on songs,” West said. “I can’t take this s–t, bro! Our kids have never even played together.”
Kanye also revealed that Jay called him after Kim Kardashian West’s Paris robbery, but felt Jay should have visited him in person “like brothers,” rather than call on the phone.
