There is still bad blood between JAY-Z and Kanye West.

JAY-Z and West shared a brotherly bond for years, but it looks like their current rift is too big to mend. The “Numb/Encore” singer admitted that though they have had a number disagreements in the past, West has “crossed the line” when he went on a tirade about JAY-Z and his wife, Beyoncé, dissing them during his concert last year.

“The whole point is, ‘You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage,” JAY-Z explained on the Rap Radar podcast (via Us Weekly). “But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.”

JAY-Z, 47, added that he believes West is aware of the mess he made. The “Gold Digger” rapper “knows that he crossed the line,” Beyoncé’s husband said. “I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it,” he explained.

Meanwhile, JAY-Z was recently asked by Rap Radar podcast host Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller about his single titled “Kill JAY Z.” Many assumed that the track takes a jab at West as the lyrics seem to allude to their feud. It mentioned backstabbing, $20 million and 20 minutes on stage.

West had a contract with JAY-Z’s company Tidal, but opted to end their ties following their beef. Their falling out resulted in a financial dispute, with West threatening the company with a multi-million lawsuit. The backstabbing and 20 minutes on stage allude to West’s rant during his November 2016 concert, where he criticized Beyoncé and JAY-Z. However, JAY-Z explained that the track was more about himself than his former friend. “It’s not even about a Kanye diss,” JAY-Z explained. “It’s not a diss, I’m talking to myself the whole time.”

In related news, earlier this month, JAY-Z released the music video for his single “Moonlight,” which appears to be a tribute to NBC’s hit sitcom “Friends.” It was the perfect reboot for fans who wanted to revisit the TV series. The song touches on the 2017 Oscars controversy in which “La La Land” had been mistakenly announced as the winner for the best picture instead of the real winner, “Moonlight.”
