JAY-Z made his feud with Kanye West official when he mentioned it in his 4:44 track 'Kill JAY-Z.'
You walking around like you invincible / You dropped outta school, you lost your principles / I know people back-stab you, I felt bad too / But this fuck everybody attitude ain’t natural / But you ain’t a saint, this ain’t kumbaye / But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye / You gave him $20 million without blinking / He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinking?” Jay spits on the track ‘Kill JAY-Z’.In an interview after the track dropped, Hov confirmed that the source of his anger with Kanye was West's notorious November 19th rant in Sacramento during which ‘Ye bizarrely called out Jay, Beyonce, and their “killers”. (And was sent to a mental facility soon after.)
“What really hurt me was, you can’t bring my wife and my kids into it,” Jay told Rap Radar. “Like, Kanye is my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times, he even made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem."Now it looks like they are going to get past this issue, too.

According to TMZ, Kanye has asked for a face-to-face with Hov to hash out their beef, and their sources believe the two will be back to being pals soon.
Sources also tell the gossip site that Hov and 'Ye's financial dispute over Tidal -- Kanye believes JAY-Z’s streaming service owes him $3 million and Tidal believes ‘Ye is in breach of contract -- is not the source of conflict between the two. It's strictly personal, and thus should be able to be fixed.
