There’s something else entirely to Ye and Jay’s relationship than meets the eye.
17 years prior, Kanye West joined Roc Nation’s group of in-house makers after a hot dash of generation certifications for hit tunes and, most eminently, making a few beats that Jay Z would use for his celebrated internationally collection The Blueprint. A great deal of pundits are resolute that Kanye spared Jay from a withering vocation – however to state this is to detract from the unimaginable science the two displayed on their common rising to the hip-jump royal position. You can’t have one without the other. Kanye coincidentally was the best at giving Jay a beat to set out his verses on. They built up their sounds together, to such an extent that a sizeable measure of hip-jump audience members could perceive a Kanye West beat years before The College Dropout arrived, and that is to a great extent on account of Hov for putting him on. Presently the world holds both Jay and Kanye up as incredible specialists, a status 17 years really taking shape.
In light of their current spat over TIDAL and the Saint Pablo Tour, we’ve assembled what we accept to be a portion of the best Kanye West-created Jay Z tracks to turn out finished the most recent two decades. Be that as it may, gracious man, what a story it would be if Jay took an old Kanye beat and set out a Kanye-diss over it…At a similar time, we trust that never happens (?!).

There’s more to Ye and Jay’s relationship than meets the eye.
17 years ago, Kanye West joined Roc Nation’s team of in-house producers after a hot streak of production credentials for hit songs and, most notably, creating several beats that Jay Z would use for his famed album The Blueprint. A lot of critics are adamant that Kanye saved Jay from a dying career – though to say this is to take away from the incredible chemistry the two exhibited on their shared ascension to the hip-hop throne. You can’t have one without the other. Kanye just happened to be the best at giving Jay a beat to lay down his verses on. They developed their sounds together, so much so that a sizeable amount of hip-hop listeners could recognize a Kanye West beat years before The College Dropout arrived, and that’s largely thanks to Hov for putting him on. Now the world holds both Jay and Kanye up as legendary artists, a status 17 years in the making.
In light of their recent spat over TIDAL and the Saint Pablo Tour, we’ve compiled what we believe to be some of the best Kanye West-produced Jay Z tracks to come out over the last two decades. But oh man, what a story it would be if Jay took an old Kanye beat and laid down a Kanye-diss over it…At the same time, we hope that never happens (?!).
