West Refutes Reports Of Jay-z Feud

A representative for KANYE WEST has blasted DAMON DASH's allegations the STRONGER rapper sparked a feud with JAY-Z after the BIG PIMPIN' hitmaker refused to lend him a diamond chain.
Dash maintains the hip-hop stars' alleged rivalry began at a 2003 concert in Chicago, Illinois, where the then-up-and-coming West - who had been signed to Dash and Jay-Z's label Roc-A-Fella Records - reportedly demanded the rap icon "knight" him with a chain.
But according to Dash, Jay-Z's former business partner, the star refused to lend him the jewellery - and West has "hated" his boss and labelmate ever since.
Dash tells the December (08) issue of U.S. magazine Complex, "This n**ger (West) was like, 'Wow, (Jay-Z) ain't going to give me this chain. I had to take off my chain and give it to him, and I was heated. I had the real canary diamonds. That s**t cost $40,000. I told Kanye, 'Yo, you got to give that back when we get off this stage!'"
However, a spokesperson for West, who continues to work closely with Jay-Z, has dismissed Dash's claims, telling the New York Daily News the report is "ridiculous and totally false".
Dash and Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, founded Roc-A-Fella Records with pal Kareem 'Biggs' Burke in 1996, but the trio parted ways in late 2004, with Jay-Z retaining the label name under his deal with Def Jam Records.
