Jay Z Talks Fighting With Kanye Over New Album
Hov has revealed that Kayne West wanted to include ‘Holy Grail’ and ‘Oceans’ from his latest LP Magna Carta Holy Grail on their collaborative Watch The Throne album.
Via Gigwise reports:
Today and throughout out this week, BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe will air his new interview with Jay-Z.
Hov revealed to Lowe that he had already started working on the Magna Carta Holy Grail tracks ‘Holy Grail’ (featuring Justin Timberlake) and ‘Oceans’ (featuring Frank Ocean) around the time he was working on Watch the Throne with West.
He says that he and Yeezy agreed that after they did the album together, they’d start working on their new solo albums. Jay had made those two tracks and played them for Kanye, which instigated a ‘four-day argumen’t about it they should’ve been on WTT or held for MCHG.
Jay-Z said: “[There were] no lyrics on ‘Holy Grail’ and I recorded ‘Oceans’ and I played those records for Kanye and he was like, ‘no those have to go on Watch the Throne,’ so we spent four days arguing about those records and I was explaining to him why it wasn’t right for this project and I had a whole idea for making this album called Magna Carta… Holy Grail [part of] the name came after.”
The rapper also explained that the arguing was civil, “four days literally arguing… not like fighting. Well, there was some pushing at one point but not between us, just everyone else got a little excited.”

Kanye’s unwarranted ego will cause the demise of this friendship. Get it together Ye!
