“We had one disagreement ever. Before and after we’ve been cool,” Jay (né Shawn Carter) said in an August interview with Rap Radar hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller when speaking about the incident for the first time after three years. “She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period. …We’ve always had a great relationship.”
Jay-Z’s recent album, 4:44, sparked fan theories that the project title alluded to the chaotic moment. The address of Le Bain, the hotel’s rooftop bar, is 444 West 13th Street.
The father of three has previously dismissed rumors that the elevator feud resulted in each sister releasing their albums Lemonade and A Seat At The Table. “I think we went into that elevator great artists. That doesn’t surprise me,” he said in his Rap Radar interview.
Jay-Z earned three Grammy nominations in three of the awards’ four major categories for 4:44, raking in a total of eight nods.
