Rumor has it that Jay-Z, ever the business man, is getting a bit annoyed with his Watch The Throne collabo partner Kanye West about the size and scale of their upcoming tour. You may have heard by now that Jigga Man apparently “slapped” Yeezy in the face over the issue, but Jay has since come out to say that’s just not true.
But there must be SOME sort of truth about the beef, right?
Seriously people, don’t believe anything you read on MTO until it’s corroborated by at least three reliable sources. The last time I was tricked into looking at that site was back in March when they said [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] was pregnant!
Again, not true.
According to today’s New York Post, Jay & Ye are currently NOT on speaking terms over creative differences for their upcoming Watch the Throne tour. Apparently, Kanye wants go H.A.M. on the production of the show and Jay just wants to collect loot so he can fork it back over to Live Nation to pay back an advance they gave him.
The post quotes “an insider” as saying that “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.”
Our friends at PopCrush said it right:
“What kind of story is this? First of all, two millionaires fighting over the biggest tour of the fall season? We don’t believe it. And who says, “stone-cold” nowadays? Are we living in the 60s? Who’s your source NYPost, Cheech and Chong?”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
In all honesty, I can see Kanye being an annoying a$$… it’s his true nature. But a slap fight? Naaah…
Anyway, the boys are set to kick off the tour on September 22nd in Detroit. Fans can pick up pre-sale tix on Tuesday, August 2nd at 10AM Eastern before they become available to the public on August 8th – which just so happens to be the date Watch the Throne will hit iTunes! Physical copies are set to start arriving in stores on August 12th.
