Apple In Talks to Acquire Tidal?


Rumors are swirling that Apple is considering a deal to purchase Jay Z's music streaming service Tidal...

From The Wall Street Journal
Apple Inc. is in talks to acquire Tidal, a streaming-music service run by rap mogul Jay Z, according to people familiar with the matter.
Apple is exploring the idea of bringing on Tidal to bolster its Apple Music service because of Tidal’s strong ties to popular artists such as Kanye West, Madonna and Prince.
The talks are ongoing and may not lead to a deal...

Apple already has "strong ties" to musicians as well.

I don't see any point in this other than just more corporate consolidation of power in an already dying industry.

I know this was posted on Jigga's Twitter page but I hope he wouldn't sell out like that. How the hell would this work for Prince's music if he sold out and sold to them?

they trying to keep black people from rising....I keep telling yall this shit.

WHITE PEOPLE ARE THE DEVIL THAT THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF.

Jay Z had a vision with Tidal, and was recruiting alot of connected black artists like T.I. etc etc

As soon as T.I. gets on with Tidal, now all of a sudden Apple wants to buy them out????

Chess move.

If this deal goes through watch every one try and make this like Jay made a huge deal when in fact it would be a self serving deal and in line with his pass failed business deals. What would happen to all the independent artist he had turn their back on Apple?

If he sells it and makes a profit then people will say he sold out or got screwed in the deal somehow. If he doesn't sell it people will say it's worthless or he ruined the deal and lost money.

Either wayou he will be hated and someone will mention the devil, beyonce, or some hebrew israelite bullshit.

Suck a bag-o-dicks haters.

Remember this TIDAL stream is owned by a Scandinavian Group and Live Nation. Jay is the middle man - many businesses have middlemen.

Its only owned by Scandinavians if the deal goes well. If the deal goes bad then Jay owns 100%.

GET YOUR HATE RIGHT YOU HOURLY LOSER

People are still trying to make this a black/white thing? You all saw the pictures, Tidal only has like 1.5 Black people working for them and Jay is that powerless 1.
Tidal can't be worth much at this point, LiveNation mighht as well sell it.

Where is Lurker with the real tea?

Sooooo.... If it loses money his (as you put it "powerless 1") will remain insignificant but... if it makes money he won't turn a profit because it is worthless????

The hate is strong with you.

Cosign @9:52
When it was staggering people on here and other sites were saying he had lost his $56 million that he spent to buy the company. He spent $56 million on Tidal, trust he's smart enough to sign on to being more than janitorial level in the company.

There is no hate, it's business, plain and simple. If there is a profit Jay (Live Nation) and other investors will make money; if no profit, they all lose money. Easy Peasy

If hater means I'm not a dimwitted boot licker caping for these mildly entertaining white supremacists then I'll be that all day everyday.

Jay-Z is a white supremacist?

Dafuq are you talking about?

Its gotta be really convenient to label any successful person with the sell out/devil worshiper/not black enough moniker. It gives you justification to stay a failure.

Now get off your work computer or stop sneaking posts on your phone and go kill your self-righteous self.

From what I understand, the Carter's have been losing a lot of money, daily. They bit off more than they could chew by trying to hang with the big boys who all happen to possess Billions in their banks at their disposal and can afford to run several billion dollar businesses. We make a big deal about them having lots of money, but it is a lot to most of us because it's more than we could ever imagine having. Yet, in the company that they keep, they are like welfare recipients. Jay has been the face representing the true owners. Jay should just pull out of this deal and save himself a lot of grief, embarrassment and money. I've never seen a black man that gets nickeled and dimed, and is just happy to look the part of being the "man", but when the truth is exposed, we see he really wasn't that big of a deal... just a paid puppet.

Just my 2 cents and it's all I've got!!!
