Kanye West paused his Wednesday Saint Pablo show in Seattle to speak out against Apple, Tidal, and, surprisingly, Jay-Z, explaining that “there will never be Watch the Throne 2,” referring to their 2011 collaborative album.
“You know why?” he asked the crowd, before explaining that he and Jay Z were supposed to be featured on Drake’s “Pop Style,” but their verse was dropped when the album was sold to Apple. “Because that’s the reason I wasn’t on the song. I wasn’t on this song because of Hov. This is Tidal, Apple bulls–t. Y’all didn’t get what y’all are supposed to get when me and Drake on this song cause of some Tidal-Apple bulls–t.” According to the rapper things got “political,” citing “some s–t about percentages on songs. I can’t take this s–t, bro.”
Back in April, Drake told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that Jay Z and West’s verse didn’t appear on the studio version of “Pop Style” because “It didn’t play out how I wanted it to go. Sometimes [Jay Z and I] just fall on opposite sides of the spectrum.”
West continued to talk about Jay Z and told the crowd that he and his wife Kim Kardashian West didn’t hear from him after she was robbed in Paris this month.
“Don’t call me after the robbery,” West said, “and say, ‘How you feelin’? You want to know how I’m feelin’? Come by the house, bring the kids like we brothers. Let’s sit down.”
