    Jay-Z went on a local New York radio station yesterday to shoot down rumors that he and Kanye West are beefing over their Watch the Throne project. The rapper chalked it up to haters talking smack since they jealous of how hot the collaboration is.

    "Kanye's my brother, if there's ever a problem with us… Yes, we get on each other's nerves but that's part of pushing each other… So of course there are times when we're in the studio, we're yelling, but that's about it… I would never disrespect (West). I have too much respect to put my hands on him."

    Jay-Z continued, "We have a healthy respect for one another… It's always about the art, it's never about him and me; it's always about the art."

    It's about the art.

    Are you going to check out the art that is Watch the Throne?
