Are Jay-z and Kanye Beefing?


In more ridiculous news than the two calling themselves ‘The Throne’, The NY Post is reporting that Jay-z and Kanye West are getting frustrated with each other while ironing out details of their upcoming tour. “Jay-Z is fed up with West’s antics, he doesn’t even want to be around him.”

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’).
