Jay Z is apparently feeling nostalgic for the old Kanye West, after hearing his latest rant against him.
West publicly called out Jay Z at a recent concert for not calling or visiting him and Kim Kardashian West after the latter was robbed in Paris. He also brought up the rivalry between Tidal and Apple Music as a reason for West being cut out of Drake's song, "Pop Style".
Now, Jay Z has had conversations with Roc-A-Fella co-founder Kareem "Biggs" Burke about not being a fan of West's changed personality.
"I was shocked to hear what Kanye said onstage," Burke told Page Six this weekend. "There was never anything rumbling . . . so when you hear these things in public, it's a little shocking. ... I'm not sure about the relationship at this point. I spoke to Jay [after Kanye's rant] and we're both just like, 'We miss the old Kanye.'"
All may not be lost between Jay Z and West, ultimately, as Burke suggested that their dispute may end sooner rather than later.
"[Kanye] is usually really honest. So it sounds like something he's going through right now," Burke said. "He may [say] something like that, and then three weeks later he may be back to, 'That's my brother.'"
"Don't call me, after the robbery, and say 'How you feelin'?' You wanna know how I'm feeling? Come by the house," West said during his concert last week in Seattle, of Jay Z. "Bring the kids by the house, like we're brothers."
He continued, "There will never be a 'Watch the Throne 2,'" referring to his 2011 collaboration album with Jay Z, "That's the reason I wasn't on this song, I wasn't on the song 'cause of Hov. 'Cause of some TIDAL/Apple bulls---. And that s--- be getting me tight every time I perform this motherf---er."
