JAY-Z opens up about infamous elevator fight, says things "are cool" with Solange Knowles following that lift row at 2014's Met Gala. As part of a Rap Radar podcast, he addresses the incident saying it was just a one-off. "We had one disagreement ever," he says. "Before and after we've been cool." The footage appears to show Solange trying to kick and hit JAY-Z in front of Beyonce before being restrained by security at New York's Standard Hotel. "We always had a great relationship," he says. "I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. “She's like my sister. I will protect her. That's my sister, not my sister-in-law, my sister."
Beyonce referred to it in Flawless and raps: "Of course sometimes [stuff] goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator." And with JAY-Z mentioning it in the opening track of 4:44, Rap Radar asked what he thought of the music it produced. "I think we went into the elevator as great artists. "I've always loved Solange's music and I think B made an incredible album before [Lemonade], she literally has a hundred hits. It's not like she didn't have music before this last album." And when pushed about whether there's an argument to say it's each one's best album, he said: "It would be an argument, but it wouldn't be clear. I kinda like reasonable doubt."
