50 Cent bares it all on some of the issues that are affecting the relationship between JAY-Z and Kanye West in the recent times in his new book titled ”Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter,
The two biggest forces in hip hop industry Jay Z and Kanye West have been a great ally since 2000s leading to 2010s when they had great projects together at Roc-A-Fella Records where the “Empire State of Mind” rapper hired the young Chicagoan to produce tracks. The two became like brothers, recording an album together and even heading on tour
The relationship hit the brick wall when Kanye West got married to Kim Kardashian in May 2014, and JAY-Z did not appear with his wife, Beyoncé.
This triggered a lot of frictions in their relationship, which became a huge issue after Kim got robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016, and the “Closed On Sunday” Ye called out his former friend for apparently not reaching out.
There are sources had it that JAY Z do not regard Kanye as anything and had called out his craziness on his track “Kill Jay Z” on his last album. Kanye left the New Yorker’s TIDAL Music in July 2017, but things have settled between the two and their families since.
In his new book, Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter, 50 Cent elaborated on what he thinks went wrong between the pair — and shockingly or not, he considers that he is at the core of it all. When Kanye was pitted against Fifty as his musical rival, the “I Get Money” rapper claims that Jay Z backed Yeezy to come out the victor as he wasn’t too thrilled with Fifty becoming known as the “it” rapper in their hometown.
“Jay had been extremely uncomfortable with my run in NYC for years. So he did everything under the sun to make sure he could beat me through Kanye,” Fifty wrote. “Jay took a lot of pride in Kanye’s victory. I think that’s one of the reasons he’s so disappointed in Kanye today.”
