Kareem “Biggs” Burke is a co-founder of Roc-a-fella with Jay Z and Damon Dash, so he’s witnessed the ups, downs, and petty beefs first hand. So Biggs’ is an opinion that matters when it comes to the current friction between Hova and Kanye West. 

To bring you up to speed, Yeezy aired out Jay Z via on onstage rant, noting that the their kids have never played together and feeling a ways that all he got was a phone call, not a visit, after Kim Kardashian got juxed in Paris.

Speaking to Page Six at the recent Reasonable Doubt pop up shop in SoHo, Biggs relayed that he actually spoke to Jay Z about Yeezy’s infamous rant. Needless to say, Biggs kept it 100.

“The last I saw [West], he spoke really highly of Jay. I’m not sure about the relationship at this point. I spoke to Jay [after Kanye’s rant] and we’re both just like, ‘We miss the old Kanye,’ Biggs told Page Six.

He added, “From what I know of Kanye, he’s usually really honest. So it sounds like something he’s going through right now. He may [say] something like that, and then three weeks later he may be back to, ‘That’s my brother.’ But at this point, with everybody’s career, we’re a little too old for rap beef.”

Kanye West is 39. Jay Z is 46.

As for putting personal business out in the streets, Jay Z has never been part of that reality TV lifestyle that Kanye West is floats in (see: The Kardashians). So we wouldn’t bet on Jigga dismissing this as another little brother acting up, let him slide type moment.

Get on the phone, fellas.
