Kanye West took some major shots from his Watch The Throne collaborator JAY-Z on 4:44, and most were wondering if the former friends would continue the war on wax. According to discussions from those close to the Chicago superstar, Yeezy might be prepping a response to Hov’s sharp jabs.
Towards the end of the newest episode of The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal, one of the co-hosts casually mentioned he’d spoken to Kanye in L.A. recently and claimed that “Kanye got a few words in response to what Jay had on 4:44” on his next album.
“Kanye wasn’t smiling,” he said. “He was smiling before that conversation started. He said some funny shit. He said, ‘Yeah man, I was next to Jay for years standing right next to him, why he didn’t give me no jewels he put on the album?’ He was like, ‘Damn he could have schooled me to all of this shit when I was right next to him.’” But Kanye hasn’t taken Jay’z disses lightly. “There’s some malice,” the co-host claimed, suggesting that Kanye will hit back hard.
That snippet of the episode can be caught towards the end of the audio around the 1:33:50 mark.
