Kanye West ‘Hates’ Jay Z
Damon Dash claims that the two rappers have a long running feud
Kanye West has hated mentor Jay Z since they fell out over a diamond chain in 2003- according to former Roc-a-fella records boss Damon Dash.
He claims that Jigga refused to knight West with his own necklace while on stage at a concert in Chicago and that ever since the Love Lockdown star has held a grudge.
Dash told Complex Magazine: "This n- [Kanye ] was like, 'Wow. [Jay-Z] ain't going to give me the chain. I had to take off my chain and give it to him, and I was heated. I had the real canary diamonds. That s- cost $40,000! I told Kanye, 'Yo, you got to give that back when we get off this stage!'"
Kanye's representatives have already rubbished Damon Dash's story calling it ridiculous. Other sources say the mogul is simply trying to drum up interest in his artist Jim Jones.
Jay Z fell out with Dash as they sold their record label Roc-a-fella to Def Jam in 2004.
Damon previously said of Jay: "My best friend did some shit to me that I never thought in a million years he would do."
Ironically Jay Z hit back at his former business partner on a remix of Kanye West's track Diamonds Are Forever.
