Jay-Z and Beyonce dropped a bomb on their fans this weekend: Their surprise album Everything Is Love came out of nowhere and gave fans a lot to think about. One of the major questions is about his friendship with Kanye West.

 

On the song, "Friends" Jay-Z talks about his real friends and alludes to West, specifically why he didn't go to his lo friend's wedding to Kim Kardashian.

 

He raps, "I ain't going to nobody for nothing when me and my wife beefing. I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dying, nigga, I ain't leaving. Ty Ty take care of my kids, after he done grieving. If ya'll don't understand that, we ain't meant to be friends."

I ain't going to nobody for nothing when me and my wife beefing. I don't care if the house on fire, I'm dying, nigga, I ain't leaving.

West recently told Charlamagne tha God that he was upset that Jay wasn't at his wedding, saying, "Respectfully, I have to say I was hurt that they didn't come to the wedding. I understand they were going through some things, but if it's family, you're not gonna miss a wedding."

 

Jay-Z also may have talked about West on the song "Boss" where he raps, "Hundred million crib, three million watch, all facts. No cap, false n---a you not a boss, you got a boss. N---as getting jerk, that shit hurts, I take it personally. N---as rather work for the man than to work with me. Just so they can pretend they on my level, that shit is irkin' to me. Pride always goeth before the fall, almost certainly."

 

The lyrics might be talking about how West still answers to big companies like Adidas, and his decision to leave Tidal. 

 

Jay-Z recently told David Letterman that he still cares about Kanye, saying, "That's my brother, we're beyond friends," he said. "And like your little brother, things happen sometimes."
