Since Kim Kartrashian is taking a fame-whorebbatical after getting jewel-jacked in Paris, it’s Kanye West’s job to desperately get those headlines and he went for it during the Seattle stop on his Saint Pablo tour last night. Kuntye went after fellow Tidal shareholder (Do they call themselves “seaweeds“?) Jay-Z over dumb political crap between Apple and Tidal, and also over Jay calling him after Kim was robbed instead of dropping by for a personal visit. Things are going to be really awkward for everyone at the next Illuminati sacrificial ritual ceremony when Kanye and Jay keep throwing mad looks at each other.
Both Jay-Z and Kanye did verses on Drake’s song Pop Style, but they were both cut from the version that ended up on the album and it’s all the fault of Hov! Drake’s album Views was exclusively released on Apple Music for five days. Jay-Z thinks that Apple Music is Tidal’s competition (and that’s like a faucet drip thinking it’s as powerful as a tsunami) and so he wouldn’t allow his verse on Views. Kanye’s verse also got the cut. In one of his signature tweet-a-rrhea sessions last June, Kanye begged Apple to buy Tidal so the bullshit between them could end. And last night, before Kanye performed Pop Style, he went off on Jay-Z and said that Watch The Throne #2 will never touch the ears of the public. via The Fader
There will never be a Watch The Throne 2. You know why? Because that’s the reason why I wasn’t on the song. I wasn’t on this song ’cause of Hov. Cause of this Apple/Tidal bullshit. And this shit be getting me tight every time I perform this motherfucker. Y’all didn’t get, what y’all were supposed to get with me and Drake on this song because of some Tidal/Apple bullshit. This shit got me tight, yo! Every time I perform this song I think about this shit. I think about the politics and the bullshit. I think about how hard I go for music, for art, for y’all, for the fans — how hard we go.
Kanye continued to take a machete to his bromance with Jay-Z by saying that their daughters, North West and Blue Ivy Carter, haven’t even had one playdate together. Both North and Blue Ivy were asked to comment and they said:
Blue Ivy Carter: I don’t know her.
North West: I don’t know her either!
And after the “Kim Takes Paris, And Paris Takes Kim’s Jewels” (that’s what the 6-part E! special will be called) drama happened, Jay-Z didn’t even care enough to drop by Kanye’s house with a $10,000 Fabergé egg! (That’s the rich bitch version of a sympathy casserole, right?)

I wonder what this Yeezy vs. Hov thing means for Kanye’s obsession with Beyonce? The next time Beyonce loses an award, we’re going to hear a chorus of crickets as everyone waits for Kanye to jump up and dramatically defend her. When he fails to crash the stage, Beyonce will eventually turn around, glare at Solange many rows behind her and whisper scream, “Girl, get up there!”
And this beef is obviously going to lead to Kanye really calling out Jay-Z in his visual album titled Kanyade.
Here’s the paps taking pictures of The Slow One leaving a restaurant in L.A. last night. They took pictures of the most boring K, because I guess Khlozilla, Pimp Mama Kris, Caitlyn, Rob, Blac Chyna, Kylie, Kendall, North West, Saint West, Penelope, Mason, Reign, Jonathan Cheban and literally every other member of the koven had the night off from the pap stroll.
