While performing in Seattle, Kanye spoke about Kim Kardashian's robbery after ranting about why he and Jay Z weren't on a recent Drake song. He seemed to be taking a dig at Hov, and said, “Don’t call me after the robbery and say, ‘How you feelin’?’ You wanna know how I’m feelin’? Come by the house . . . Bring the kids by the house like we brothers . . . Our kids ain’t never even played together.”

Jay was like, ‘I’m gonna knock this out. We’re going to do a tour to bring in millions of dollars. I can tolerate that,’ ” added the source.
