Kanye West Marks ‘Watch The Throne’ Anniversary, Says He Misses Jay-Z

Kanye West took a trip down memory lane that made him miss his friend, Jay-Z. On Monday (Aug. 10), West marked the ninth anniversary of Watch the Throne Yeezy by tweeting a screenshot of a performance of him and Jay from the 2011 MTV VMAs with the caption, “Miss my bro...real talk.”

Hov and ‘Ye haven’t been as close in recent years, namely after West’s onstage rant against the Brooklyn native during his St. Pablo Tour in 2016. West ended up cutting the tour short, and was hospitalized for a reported mental breakdown. In the years since, Jay and West have basically been estranged. They posed for a photo at Diddy’s 50th birthday party last December, but it doesn’t seem like they’ll be fully rekindling the brotherhood any time soon.

Watch the Throne, which dropped on Aug. 11, 2011, was the first and last collaborative album from Jay and West. The Roc Nation mogul spoke on the tension in a 2017 Rap Radar interview clarifying that his “Kill Jay Z” lyrics weren’t about West, even though he was named on the song. The father of three explained that the friendship fell apart because West crossed the line when he brought up Hov’s family in a public forum.

“What really hurt me was, you cant bring my kids and my wife into it,” Jay shared. “Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.

“He knows that he crossed the line,” continued Jay. “I know him. He knows. I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many, because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”

The dilapidated home, located in South Carolina, was built on a former slave planation which later became her grandmother’s farm. Although Davis was born in the home, her family moved to +Rhode Island when she was two months old.

The youngest of six children, Davis has never been shy to speak about growing up in poverty and going hungry most nights. As a child, Davis came up with different ways to get food, which included joining summer programs for free lunch, and rummaging through trash cans. “I was always so hungry and ashamed,” she told Glamour magazine in 2018. “I couldn’t tap into my potential. I couldn’t get at the business of being me.”

The Oscar-winning actress found her footing in the theater and earned a scholarship to Rhode Island College, before attending the Juilliard School in New York City. She made her silver screen debut in the 1996 film, The Substance of Fire. Davis earned a Tony Award in 2001 for her performance in Broadway's King Hedley II, and booked small roles in films like Out of Sight, Ocean's Eleven, and Traffic. Davis landed her first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for her riveting performance in 2008's Doubt.

Amber Guyger Appeals Murder Conviction In Botham Jean Case

Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger has appealed her murder conviction this week in an effort to receive a shorter sentence, the Star-Telegram reported on Friday (Aug. 7). Guyger is currently serving a 10-year-sentence for fatally shooting Botham Jean inside his apartment in 2018.

Attorneys for Guyger claim that there was insufficient evidence to warrant a conviction. The legal documents reportedly want the murder conviction tossed, or changed to criminally negligent homicide.

“I feel like she received a slap on the wrist for taking my brother’s life,” Botham Jean’s sister Allis Findley. “This tells me that she feels like she didn’t do anything wrong. She did not step on my brother’s toe. She took his life.”

Guyger was found guilty on Oct. 1. She maintains that she entered Jean’s apartment believing that it was her own. Guyger testified that she shot Jean believing that he was an intruder.

“She should have received life, so she should take her 10 years in prison and shut up,” added Findley. “If the court was to do this it would prove that, yes, there is systematic racism and white privilege does prevail over Black life. I’m hoping this appeal gets thrown out and her conviction holds. I’m hoping they overturn the 10 years and give her life instead.”
