JAY-Z finally opens up about infamous Met Gala fight with Solange


Jim Dyson/Getty ImagesJAY-Z is opening up about that now infamous fight with Solange at a 2014 Met Gala party.

Instead of addressing the incident directly, the rapper said the two had a rare disagreement and haven’t fought since.

“We’ve always had a great relationship,” he said during a lengthy interview with Rap Radar hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian Miller, posted to JAY-Z’s streaming service, Tidal.

“We’ve had one disagreement. Before and after, we’ve been cool,” the 47-year-old said. “That’s my sister. Not my sister-in-law, no, my sister. Period.”

Solange was seen in a video posted to TMZ apparently punching and kicking JAY-Z in an elevator at the 2014 party, while a bodyguard tries to restrain her. Beyonce, who is also seen in the 58-second clip, eventually steps between the two.

“I think we went into the elevator as great artists,” JAY-Z quipped in the Rap Radar interview. “I’ve always loved Solange’s music; I thought she was slept on until this last album. I think Bey made an incredible album before, a hundred of them.”

Beyonce, addressed the incident three months afterward in a song — the remix to “Flawless.”

“Of course, sometimes s*** go down when there’s $1 billion on an elevator,” she sang.
