Then I went and told Jay Brown
Shoulda known that was gonna come back around
Shoulda talked to you like a man, shoulda told you first
But I told somebody else and that's what made shit worse
Kanye regrets not confronting Jay-Z and instead venting his frustrations to others, which only exacerbated the situation
Jay Brown was an A&R with Roc-A-Fella and is the co-founder of Roc Nation. Rather than confronting the President of Roc-A-Fella himself, Jay-Z, Kanye too the easy way out and went to the nicer, but more likely to tell, Brown.
