Channel 4 To Air Documentary On Growing Feud Between Former BFFs Jay-Z And Kanye West

Cast your mind back to last November, when Kaye West took to the stage in Sacramento during his Saint Pablo tour and ranted about Beyoncé and Jay-Z's lack of friendship with the rapper.

After dissing the new parents, suggesting they're too focussed on 'winning' and 'looking cool', the 40-year-old called out the Jay-Z to say: 'Call me, brah, you still ain't call me. Jay Z, I know you got killas, please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.'

In the months that followers, the former BFFs and co-workers called off their friendship, with Jay-Z album 4:44's opening track 'Kill Jay-Z' addressing the pair's broken friendship to say:

"You walkin' around like you invincible/ You dropped outta school, you lost your principles/I know people backstab you, I felt bad too/But this 'f*ck 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 blinkin'/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*ck was he thinkin'?"

Is it any wonder Kanye West is reportedly leaving his and Jay-Z's music streaming service, Tidal?

As a result, Channel 4 has decided to dive head-frst into Kanye and Jay-Z's friendship, by airing a documentary entitled Public Enemies: Jay-Z vs Kanye, out on 31 July.

The trailer, which first aired on HotNewHipHop, promises to show never-been-seen footage and interviews with people who have worked with and know the pair best, detailing the pair's work, money troubles, the father-son-inspired relationship, and powerful cultural influence.
