Jay-Z has spoken about the animosity between him and Kanye West, saying that the rapper 'crossed a line' when he brought Beyoncé and his kids into it.
Speaking to hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian 'B.Dot' Miller on the Rap Radar podcast, Jay-Z said "You can't bring my kids and my wife into it. We've gotten past bigger issues but you brought my family into it - that's a problem with me, that's a real, real problem."
While on stage at the Golden 1 Centre in Sacramento during his Saint Pablo Tour last November, Kanye said: "Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling' ... sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win.
"Fuck winning, fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh.
"Jay-Z, call me, bruh. You still ain't called me. Jay-Z, I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man."
Kanye left the stage early and was hospitalised in LA following a breakdown just days after the show.
At an earlier show, Kanye seemed upset and ranted about Jay not bringing Blue Ivy around to see him, saying 'our kids never even played together'.
Jay-Z went on to say that Kanye knows he 'crossed the line' by mentioning Jay's family, and that he's aware of the fact that this is the biggest rift the pair have ever had.
He said: "We've never let this much space go between one of our disagreements and we've had many, it's part of who we are, that's what I liked about him, he's this honest person, he'll say things - and he's wrong a lot of times - and we'll confront it."
He also told the hosts that his song Kill Jay Z, wasn't a
Kanye diss-track. Instead saying the song was an 'introspective' view of himself - yeah, sure thing, Jay, we believe you.
