Kareem “Biggs” Burke Says Jay Z Misses the Old Kanye West
Whether you love or hate Kanye West, you have to agree there was a point where he started acting different. He's always been a self-proclaimed ass-hole, but at one point in time, he started talking different, he started spazzing at a way more frequent rate and his overall behavior became unpredictable. Jay Z has noticed the change too, and apparently he misses the old Kanye just as much as the people Yeezy rapped about on the song off his latest album. That's according to Roc-A-Fella co-founder Kareem "Biggs" Burke.
Hov and Yeezus' relationship has been strained recently with West calling out the Brooklyn rap mogul for not showing enough support when his wife Kim Kardashian was recently robbed in Paris. "Don’t call me after the robbery and say, ‘How you feelin’?’ You wanna know how I’m feelin’? Come by the house … Bring the kids by the house like we brothers … Our kids ain’t never even played together,” West said.
Some sources say Jay Z doesn't really like West and his over-the-top antics that much, while others say Jigga is understanding.
Biggs recently touched on the topic during an interview with Page 6 at his Reasonable Doubt pop up shop, and according to him, Jay was more of a fan of West before he started illing on a regular basis. "The last I saw [West], he spoke really highly of Jay," Burke started. "I’m not sure about the relationship at this point. I spoke to Jay [after Kanye’s rant] and we’re both just like, ‘We miss the old Kanye.’ From what I know of Kanye, he’s usually really honest. So it sounds like something he’s going through right now. He may [say] something like that, and then three weeks later he may be back to, ‘That’s my brother.’ But at this point, with everybody’s career, we’re a little too old for rap beef.”
While they get this whole friendship thing figured out, Watch The Throne 2 remains in limbo.
