New doc to explore relationship between JAY-Z and Kanye

FALL OUT: Kanye West and JAY-Z

A DOCUMENTARY about JAY-Z and Kanye West's tumultuous relationship will premiere in the U.K. later this month, Music News reports.

The rappers became friends and collaborators after West produced some of the 99 Problems hitmaker's groundbreaking album The Blueprint in 2001 and JAY-Z subsequently signed him to his record label.

However, their friendship has become strained and their feud recently went public after West accused his old pal of abandoning him after his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint last year.

Public Enemies: JAY-Z vs Kanye, which will premiere on in the UK on July 31, will explore their business and personal relationship and feature "unseen footage and exclusive interviews".

A press release reads:

"This (programme) reveals the story behind JAY-Z and Kanye West's spectacular rise, their creative partnership and their colossal falling out."

The rappers' feud hit the headlines last year when outspoken West lashed out at his mentor and his wife Beyonce during a concert in Sacramento, California, just days before he cancelled his Saint Pablo Tour and was hospitalised for a mental evaluation in late November.

JAY-Z also addressed the fall out with his protege on his new song, Kill Jay Z, on the critically-acclaimed album 4:44 which was released last month.

Watch a trailer for the documentary which airs on Channel 4, Monday 31 July at 10pm below:
