WHAT BEEF?: Jay-Z Clears Up The Rumors And Hosts Private “Watch The Throne” Listening Party With Kanye
This is why as a blogger I feel it’s never good to post EVERYTHING you hear, especially when you can decipher what’s BS for yourself. You end up having to counter it with posts like this one when it can be avoided altogether, but that’s just me. Anyway, for the past few days, the internet was buzzing that BFFs Jay-Z and Kanye West were at odds over “Watch The Throne“ tour costs. Reportedly, ‘Ye wanted a flashy set that would cost $400,000 per show and the two were “barely speaking.” Well, that was until Jay stopped by The Angie Martinez Show on HOT 97 yesterday and pretty much laughed off the rumors. No surprise there! Check out what he had to say about the alleged feud below.
Then later that night, Shawn hit up The Hayden Planetarium in NYC to host a private listening party with Yeezy. Peep the pics after the jump:

Watch The Throne drops digitally August 8 and hits stores August 12.
