Back in April, The Throne’s JAY-Z updated fans on his relationship toward Kanye.
“That’s my brother, we’re beyond friends. Really, like literally, my little brother is Kanye. And like your little brother, things happen sometimes – I’ve watched Kanye from without an album. The thing that I respect about him is that he’s the same person. Like, he interrupted our studio session, stood on a table and started rapping. And we were like, ‘Could you ‘please’ get down,’ and he was like ‘No, I’m the savior of Chicago!’ He didn’t have a record.” (“My Next Guest Needs No Introduction”)
In early December 2017, JAY publicly saluted Kanye during a live concert performance.
