JAY-Z sat down with TIDAL's 'Rap Radar' podcast for an interview that addressed some of the spicier lyrics on his excellent new album 4:44. Namely, his allusions to that elevator fight with Solange (yes, that one) and bars that have widely been read as a diss toward Kanye West in the track "Kill Jay Z." Watch him discuss in the clip below.

Regarding Solange, JAY didn't give away too much information, but he does say that the two are completely "cool." "We’ve had one disagreement ever," he says, “Before and after, we’ve been cool. She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister. Not my sister-in-law. My sister.”

As for the supposed Kanye diss on the track, JAY reveals that he is actually referring to himself in an open dialogue. "It’s not even about a Kanye diss. It’s not a diss, I’m talking to myself the whole time.” Even so, he admits during the podcast that he was less than amused by Kanye's now-infamous rant during the bizarre closing of his 'Saint Pablo' Tour. "But what really hurt me, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me,” he said.
