Kanye West has designed a new clothing line supporting ‘Blexit’, a movement that encourages black voters who vote democrat to leave the party. Veuer’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
Jay-Z and Kanye West have always had a tenuous relationship – which may have just become more complicated with the release of Meek Mill’s new song, “What’s Free.”
The “Story of OJ” rapper contributes a guest verse to the track off Mill’s new album (out now on Spotify) in which he seemingly refers to West and the Make America Great Again hat he has been known to wear thanks to his relationship with President Trump.
“No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye, They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA, I ain’t one of those house (expletives) you bought, My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours,” he raps.
Shortly after the mention starting making waves, Jay-Z tweeted to clarify he wasn’t trying to go after West.
“The line clearly meant don’t pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat)…” he wrote.
Still, the two have had a rocky friendship.
Back in 2016, West ranted about Jay-Z in an onstage tirade shortly before canceling his Saint Pablo tour, in which he dissed the rapper for not allegedly “calling him.”
“It’s a complicated relationship with us,” Jay-Z told the New York Times in 2017. “Cause, you know – Kanye came into this business on my label. So I’ve always been like his big brother. And we’re both entertainers. It’s always been like a little underlying competition with your big brother. And we both love and respect each other’s art, too. So it’s like, we both – everyone wants to be the greatest in the world … And then there’s like a lot of other factors that play in it. But we gonna always be good.”
