Jay-Z says he and Kanye West argued for four days over two songs “Holy Grail” and “Oceans.”
The two appeared on Jay-Z’s new album Holy Grail, now in stores.
According to NME, Jay-Z told BBC Radio 1?s Zane Lowe that both singleswere originally recorded for his new album but wanted them for .
“We had this whole plan when me and Kanye did [the]Watch The Throne album that we would go right into our solos after that,” Jay-Z said. “Soon as I thought we had wrapped up Watch The Throne, I made two records. I had ‘Holy Grail’ and ‘Oceans’.”“[Kanye] was like, ‘No those have to go on Watch The Throne, so we spent four days arguing about those records and I was explaining to him why it wasn’t right project and I had a whole idea for making this album called ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’,” Jay-Z continues.
Jay-Z alluded that the four-day argument did not get between himself and Kanye West, but it did between other individuals involved in the projects.
“Four days, four days literally arguing, not like fighting,” Jay-Z said. “Well, there was some pushing at one point but not between us, just everyone else got a little excited.”
