Kanye West & Jay-Z

Fans of hip hop squabbles will be pleased to know that Kanye West is planning on responding to Jay-Z’s little digs on his new album ‘4:44’ via the long proven dispute-resolving medium of rap. Or at least that’s according to The Joe Budden Podcast.

As previously reported, Jay-Z’s lyrical disses of West came along just as reports circulated of legal letters being sent back and forth between the latter’s attorney and legal rep’s for the former’s Tidal business, seemingly in a dispute over monies West reckons he is owed for providing the streaming firm with an exclusive on the ‘Life Of Pablo’ album.

Discussing the beef, Joe Budden Podcast co-host Mal said: “I had a cool little conversation with Kanye in LA. He said he’s got a few words in response to what Jay had on ‘4:44’ when his next record comes out”.

Continuing, the podcast host added of his chit chat with West: “There’s some malice. He wasn’t smiling. He was smiling before that conversation started”.

So there you have it. The podcast is here:
