Kanye was clearly very hurt by the fact that Jay Z didn’t attend his wedding. Clearly Jay Z got wind of this and took the opportunity to address this situation in the song “Friends” off his and Beyonce’s collaborative project “Everything is Love” . The lyrics on the song shares the dept of his situation with Beyonce and the extend of which it was a priority to him.
His verse reads “I ain’t goin’ to nobody nothin’ when me and my wife beefin’ / I don’t care if the house on fire, I’m dyin’, n*gga, I ain’t leavin’/” the 48-year-old raps on the sixth track aptly titled “Friends.” “Ty-Ty take care of my kids, after he done grievin’ / If y’all don’t understand that, we ain’t meant to be friends.”
The candid lyrics confirm that JAY-Z chose not to attend because he was dealing with turmoil in his own marriage, which he felt needed to be resolved. On the song, JAY also name-drops a list of people he considers close friends, and Kanye doesn’t make the cut. Take with that what you will. Looks like the feud between these two rap titans is far from over.
