The world was beyond shook after that infamous elevator footage from the 2014 MET Gala leaked of Solange Knowles coming for Jay-Z. And more importantly, the footage that showed Beyonce doing no-thing about it. It caused SO many questions to pop up in our mind, but most importantly - what caused Solange to snap and why wasn't Beyonce trying to cool her sister down?
In an interview with Rap Radar, Jay-Z finally opened up about the whole ordeal after he touched on it lightly in 'Kill Jay-Z' off his 13th studio album, 4:44. The line reads: "You egged Solange on, knowing all along, all you had to do was say you was wrong."
Shortly after the incident, Solange, Jay-Z and Beyonce released a statement saying they "moved forward as a united family" after the "unfortunate incident." Though it wasn't officially stated by any party, Beyonce's Lemonade and lyrics on Jay-Z's latest release definitely suggest some foul play on the rapper's behalf. Who knows exactly how many Becky's there were over the course of their marriage?
Jay-Z went on record in saying that he and Solange are undeniably family. "We had one disagreement ever. Before and after we've been cool. I will protect her. That's my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period."
Though the elevator fight was definitely more than just a 'family scrap', Jay-Z insists that it hasn't changed his relationship with Solange at all. "We've always had a great relationship. I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space. But it ain't nothing."
Jay even went on to say that the scrap inspired some of their best music to date, alluding to Solange's A Seat At The Table. "We went into the elevator as great artists but I've always loved Solange's music. I think she was slept on until this last album.'
We're all wide awake now, Hov, no doubt about that.
