Is the Kanye West and Jay Z bromance over?

According to The Guardian, while West performed at the X Games in Austin on June 7, attendees have noticed that he’s been altering some of the lyrics in his songs. Not because they contain profane lyrics, but rather, because they no longer mention his ‘Watch the Throne’ partner Jay Z.

Rumblings began when according to Consequence of Sound, a user on the message board KanyeToThe wrote about West’s X Games gig:  ”First time he [skipped Jay Z's name], I [thought], ‘Ehh that’s odd, maybe he’s just letting the crowd finish it whatever,’” the fan wrote. “Then [Kanye] skipped his name again … Definitely obvious and intentional.”

Another example cited was when West sang the lyrics for ‘Cold,’ he changed ”Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team” to ”Lucky I ain’t had (silence) drop him from the team.”

In the song ‘Blood on the Leaves,’ he also altered ”I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay Z / He ain’t with you, he with Beyoncé, you need to stop actin’ lazy” by dropping Jay Z’s name and rapping the second line,  ”You need to stop actin’ crazy!”

On May 25, fans were confused when it was reported that Jay Z did not attend Kanye West’s wedding to Kim Kardashian and instead, opted to spend Memorial Day weekend at the Hamptons. Rumors suggested that Jay Z and Beyonce were avoiding fashion designer Rachel Roy, who some say was the reason why Solange got in a fight with Jay Z.

Could Kanye still be upset over that?
