(Radio.com) JAY-Z's latest album is a treasure trove of intrigue: From the truth about his marriage to Beyonce to the friendship gone sour with Kanye West. In one of the more inflammatory moments on "Kill Jay Z," Jay raps about lending Kanye West a hand, professionally and financially, which West repaid with a concert rant.
