Are Jay Z and Kanye West really all that close? Sources, keep this in mind, are claiming that Hova and Yeezy really aren’t that tight and that the “Friend or Foe” rapper only tolerates the 39-year-old tantrum haver. 

As you already know, West aired out Jay Z during one of his recent concert. Besides Watch The Throne 2 being stuck in oblivion, West feels a ways that Jigga only called him and didn’t actually come over to check in with his little brother, or have a playdate with their kids.

Many theories have abounded every since, with the one that Beyonce doesn’t like Kim Kardashian always creeping up.

However, besides the writing on the wall, Jigga’s supposed indifference is possibly due to his just not being that into Kanye West.

Reports Page Six:

A music insider told us that the rappers’ friendship was never what it seemed. “Jay can’t stand him,” said the source. “He looks at him as this crazy, eccentric motherf - - ker he can tolerate in small doses. Kanye is a nut job. Everyone knows that.”

The source said of the tour for the duo’s blockbuster 2011 album “Watch the Throne” that Jay Z “tolerated” West because “there was so much money to be made. Jay was like, ‘I’m gonna knock this out. We’re going to do a tour to bring in millions of dollars. I can tolerate that.’ ”

Mind you, Page Six is the same outlet that all but guaranteed that Jay Z and Bey were heading to divorce, so there’s that.

In more important news, Jay Z is the first rapper to be nominated to the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
