This Video Explains the Fallout Between JAY-Z and Kanye West

From “Big Brother” to “Kill Jay-Z.”

Back in 2011, JAY-Z and Kanye West put out one of the greatest rap albums that still carries a lot of impact today, Watch the Throne. Both superstars in their own right, this pairing skyrocketed the core definition of bromance. But as the saying goes, “What goes up, must come down.”

Over the past few days, JAY-Z and Kanye’s relationship rough patch has been surfacing to light, with recent reports stating JAY owes Kanye more than $3 million USD.
