Kanye West played some of his greatest hits like ‘Blood On The Leaves’ and ‘Cold’ at the X Games in Austin, Texas on June 7. His performance thrilled Yeezus fans, but something was missing — Jay Z’s name in any of his lyrics! Yep, Kanye changed his songs to completely omit his supposed friend. You gotta watch the performance to believe it!
Is Kanye West, 36, still angry that Jay-Z, 44, skipped his May 24 wedding? It sure seems like it! Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce skipped Kanye and Kim Kardashian‘s wedding because of a major feud with designer Rachel Roy — and it looks like Kanye’s still upset about his friend not attending the big day.
Kanye West’s Jay-Z Diss At Concert: His Shocking Performance In Austin
Kanye’s concert at the X Games was his first return to the stage in months. The rapper debuted an entirely new setlist and stage design for the show, but his lyric changes are what REALLY had fans talking! In Kanye’s song “Cold,” he normally sings: “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” At the X Games, he completely left out Jay-Z’s name — he just skipped over from the word “had” to “drop.” Wow!
While Kanye simply left Jay-Z out of “Cold,” he actually changed the lyrics to “Blood On The Leaves.” Normally, Kanye sings: “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z. He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin lazy.” At the X Games, Kanye sang: “I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to [SILENCE]. He ain’t with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin crazy.”
Hmm. Kanye leaving out his friend and Watch The Throne collaborator’s name out of his songs is definitely suspicious. We know that Kanye and Kim danced to Jay-Z’s music at their wedding reception, so for a while it seemed like there was no bad blood before the two rappers after the wedding snub. Plus, Jay-Z sent a lavish gift to the duo to say “congrats” on their marriage!

Jay-Z gifted Kanye and Kim a bottle of Chianti that was dipped in gold and had a diamond cork, according to Page Six. How amazing! It seemed like all was well right after the wedding, but now it seems like the rappers are in a feud.
