Kanye and Jay-Z beefing?? (Business vs. Art)

While people are purchasing expensive concert tickets and waiting patiently for the release of Watch the Throne, Jay-Z and Kanye West are barely on speaking terms.

An article in the NY Post reads,

“The sources say West wants flashy concerts with “next-level production,” which would cost more than $400,000 per show. Jay-Z is said to be meticulous about costs and already has a larger, long-term advance from Live Nation that he has to pay back.

“Jay-Z can’t deal with Kanye,” an insider told Page Six. “Jay is a stone-cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn’t care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows.”

Last Monday during a show, the two wouldn’t even share the same stage, and performed separately with Young Jeezy.  However, the two are expected to perform together tonight at a listening party.

According to another source, “Jay-Z is fed up with West’s antics, and doesn’t even want to be around him.”

West is expected to agree to the conditions of the tour next week, but if he fails to do so….will there be no Watch the Throne tour??
