The JAY-Z and Kanye West feud continues. 

On JAY-Z's latest album 4:44, he slammed his former mate Kanye, claiming that he owes him $20 million. 

New reports emerging from TMZ are claiming that the $20 million that was given to Kanye was not a loan that was to be repayed, but it was 'an advance from Roc Nation to cover expenses for his Saint Pablo Tour.'

This is apparently the norm for artists to get such an advance and is usually part of their deal. 

This comes as Kim was said to be fuming over the lyrics from JAY-Z, and she said that she 'had no advance knowledge' on the information that was dropped on the album track 'Kill JAY-Z'. 

Jay raps 'You dropped outta school, you lost your principles. You gave him 20 million without thinkin'. He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinkin'?' 

Kanye has reportedly 'cut ties' with the streaming service that he helped launch back in 2015 with Jay, Calvin Harris and Rihanna.
