His surprising response?
“That’s my brother, we’re beyond friends,” the rapper responded.
Jay then clarified their relationship further.
“Really, my little brother is Kanye.
“And like, [with] your little brother, things happen sometimes,” he candidly revealed.
“It’s still your sibling forever, it’s my brother.
“We don’t come from the same mom and dad but I watched Kanye from without an album,” Jay explained.
Jay then stated that despite his fortune and superstar marriage to Kim Kardashian West, Kanye has remained the same person he knew before he became a household name.
The rapper and husband of Beyonce then shared a story with Letterman about Kanye’s boldness even before hitting it big in both the rap and business worlds.
“The thing I respect about him is that he’s the same person.
“He interrupted our studio session and stood on the table and started rapping, and we were like, ‘Could you please get down?’ And he was like, ‘No! I am the savior of Chicago!’ He didn’t have a record.”
Kanye ranted about his relationship with Jay during an October 2016 performance and then, begged his former friend to call him.
Jay then responded to Kanye’s antics and the duo’s alleged feud on the Rap Radar podcast on the rapper’s streaming service TIDAL.
“You get hurt because this guy was talking about you on a stage,” Jay-Z said on the podcast.
“But what really hurt me; you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. Like, Kanye is my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times. He even made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem,” he said at the time.
