Kanye West putting his rift with Jay Z out on front street at his Saint Pablo Seattle show is probably why the frenic producer no longer finds himself in Jay Z’s inner circle. During 2010-2012, “Big Brother” Hov and “little brother” ‘Ye were unstoppable as The Throne, dropping the wildly successful Watch The Throne and following it up with a high-grossing world tour. It was a dream come true for Kanye, who always had a sort of weird admiration for Jay that teetered between idolizing and Single White Female.
But what if Jay Z and Kanye West’s bromance was really just all in Kanye’s head? What if Jay Z was nothing more than a close work friend despite Kanye’s devotion to The Carters?
