Are Jay-z and Kanye Beefing?
In more ridiculous news than the two calling themselves ‘The Throne’, The NY Post is reporting that Jay-
According to sources, the root of the issues between Janye are stemming from production costs. Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a ‘Flashy’ and elaborate set that could cost over $400,000 a show, however, Jay-z wanted to be more cost effective since he has a very large advance from his long-term obligation with Live Nation to pay back.
“Jay-z can’t deal with Kanye. Jay is a stone-cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn’t care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows.”
Janye both appeared at the Highline Ballroom for Young Jeezy’s show last Monday, but surprised many when they appeared separately instead of performing a track from the album together.
“We were expecting them to come out together to perform a track from the album,” a source said. “They didn’t even go out together after the show.”
This sounds like a little squabble that will be over before Jay-z’s next barber visit. (Even though it’s quick to note, Jay-z sent R. Kelly home packing after they beefed during the 2004 ‘Best of Both Worlds’ Tour. He finished out the dates as ‘Jay-z and Special Guests’).
