In a podcast interview with Rap Radar hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller, Jay-Z opened up for the first time about making headlines in 2014 for his post-Met Gala elevator fight with Solange Knowles.
Jay-Z said, “I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space, but it ain’t nothing.”
He went on, “We had one disagreement ever. Before and after we’ve been cool. She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law, my sister.”
During Knowles’ attack, Beyoncé stood by silently, only intervening for a brief moment.
It has long been rumored that the trigger for Solange’s outburst was alleged infidelity on the part of JAY-Z – infidelity was also the inspiration for Beyoncé’s remarkable Lemonade and Jay appears to admit cheating on his new album 4:44.
“And if my children knew / I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same / I would probably die with all the shame,” JAY-Z says in the song’s closing verse.
“‘You did what with who?’ / What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? / ‘You risked that for Blue?'”
He reiterated that everything between the pair is fine now.
“We’ve always had a great relationship,” Jay-Z
