Jay-Z has reportedly buried the hatchet with his sister-in-law Solange Knowles following their very-publicised fight back in 2014. In a Rap Radar podcast interview on Saturday (19 August), the 47-year-old opened up about the spat, claiming that it was the first and the last time the two had locked horns.
"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," he said, without delving into the reason behind the bad blood.
"We had one disagreement ever. 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."
According to reports at the time, Solange was angry with her brother-in-law after it became known that he had allegedly cheated on Beyonce. A video made available by TMZ showed the Cranes In The Sky songstress kicking and punching Jay-Z in the elevator of the Standard Hotel in New York City after the 2014 Met Gala.
The clip showed a bodyguard attempting to restrain Solange while Beyonce looked on before intervening.
"I think we went into the elevator as great artists," the rapper added. "I've always loved Solange's music; I thought she was slept on until this last album [A Seat at the Table]."
Since the incident three years ago, none of the three artistes have come forward to explain what exactly happened but the subject has been mentioned in their songs. "Of course, sometimes s**t go down when there's $1 billion on an elevator," Beyonce sang in her 2014 Flawless remix.
Most recently, her husband released his new track Kill Jay Z in which he admonishes himself for the way he handled the situation. "You egged Solange on/Knowin' all along, all you had to say you was wrong/You almost went Eric Benet/Let the baddest girl in the world get away," he sings.
Solange, along with Beyonce and Jay-Z, released a joint statement after the fight and the Losing You singer later told Lucky magazine that they had managed to work through it. "We all feel at peace with that," she said in the interview.
