Jay Z is taking about that infamous elevator brawl he had with Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, following the 2014 Met Gala.
Surveillance cameras caught the throw down and an employee of The Standard Hotel in New York City had sold it to TMZ.
He also addresses it briefly on his new album 4:44. Oddly, the bar where the two were partying beforehand at the hotel is located at 444 West 13th St.
Jay says of his sis-in-law, “She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period.”
And family fights, he adds.
“I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life,” Jay says. “It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space. But it ain’t nothing.”
Everything is fine now, Jay adds.
“We’ve always had a great relationship,” the rapper said.
As for his falling out with Kanye West, he says his song, “Kill JAY Z," is mostly about himself, but that some of the song’s lyrics do reference Kanye.
“His name is there, just because it's just the truth of what happened. But the whole point is 'You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage.’ But what really hurt me was, you can't bring my kids and my wife into it,” Jay says. “Kanye's my little brother. He's talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We've gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it. Now it's a problem with me. That's a real, real problem. And he knows it's a problem.
“Because me and him woulda been resolved our issues. He knows that he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. I know he knows, because we've never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we've had many, because that's who we are. That's what I like about him. He's an honest person, we'll say things, and he's wrong a lot of times, and we'll confront it.”
