"We've had one disagreement ever."

Now, in true Knowles-Carter fashion, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have remained fairly silent on the incident over the years.

They released a brief statement after it happened, and they haven't really talked about it since.

But in a recent (and rare) interview on Tidal's Rap Radar podcast, Jay-Z finally opened up about the past drama with his sister-in-law — and it was honestly really sweet.

happy friday! today on the #RapRadarPodcast it's #JAYZ

“We’ve always had a great relationship,” the rapper said. “I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space, but it ain’t nothing."


The rapper was also asked about the theory that all three people involved in that elevator fight — Beyoncé, Solange, and Jay-Z himself — went on to have successful albums because of it.

But Jay-Z was quick to defend Solange's raw talent, and her latest album, A Seat at the Table:

I think we went into that elevator great artists. That don’t surprise me. I’ve always loved Solange’s music. I think she was slept on before this album. I thought the album before this one was amazing too. Incredible artist.
