This is not the first time there has been bad blood between egomaniac rappers Kanye West and Jay Z. Their latest beef though might be the one that they cannot overcome. There have been reports of tensions between the two for months but it was the final straw when Jay Z didn't show up to see Kanye get married. On Friday Bossip reported of the growing tension between Jay Z and Kanye West. Will the former best friends ever be the same again?
There have been rumors of tension between Jay Z and Kanye West pretty much since Kanye started dating Kim Kardashian. Jay Z's wife Beyonce didn't care for Kim and never kept quiet about it. Rumor has it that Beyonce called Kim a social climbing media wh*** behind her back. The problem is, once the media reported on it, it's no longer behind her back.
When Jay Z and Beyonce skipped Kim and Kanye's wedding, tension got really fierce. While the world expected Jay Z to be present for the nuptials (he was rumored to be best man after all,) Beyonce posted an Instagram photo of her makeup free face as the couple spent the holiday weekend in the Hamptons instead. Many speculated that the hip hop royalty no-show was due to the Met Gala after party drama with sister Solange and Kim Kardashian pal Rachel Roy just before the wedding date.
There are also rumblings that Jay Z and Beyonce are experiencing marriage trouble. Allegedly the pair are squabbling over Jay Z cheating rumors. So far Rachel Roy and VIP hostess Casey Cohen have been named as "other women" that Jay Z has been inappropriate with. Casey Cohen has vehemently denied any inappropriate relationship with Hova but who knows. In any case, rumors are pretty fierce that Jay Z and Beyonce are headed for divorce court as soon as their "On The Run" tour concludes.
Now the beef between former besties Jay Z and Kanye West seems to be mutual. Kanye is mad at his mentor for missing his wedding. Jay Z is rumored to be upset at Kanye for offering relationship advice after the Solange fight at the Met Gala after party in New York City.
How is Kanye West making sure everyone knows he's upset? Well he's being quiet about it in the most Kanye way possible. Kanye West mentions Jay Z in many of his popular songs. He often refers to Jay as his mentor and friend. Except now he's not mentioning Jay Z at all. During several recent performances, when his song normally referenced Jay Z, Kanye West would say nothing at all like a censor. This has happened during recent live performances of "Cold" and "Blood On The Leaves." So far Jay Z has not commented or retaliated. It will be interesting to see what happens as the rap royalty feud grows.
