Prince Estate Deny Jay Z Music Bid Rumors


Earlier this month it was reported that the Estate of the late rocker Prince was offering unreleased music from his fabled vault to the highest bidder [click here if you missed that].

The estate shoots down rumors that Jay Z placed a bid or that any music is for sale at all...

Earlier this week it was reported that Jay Z met with Prince's sister Tyka and her husband Maurice and offered $40 million for rights to the music.

However, reps from the estate tell Billboard Magazine they have “no knowledge of any discussions in that report,” and emphasized “there is no sale [of Prince’s music assets], and those responsible for the assets are not in discussions with anyone regarding a sale.”

I bet this rumor was started by Jay and his camp to make the big music companies believe he was on the brink of landing a major deal for Tidal.

You and your wife need to call Matthew for some new strategies. You all are predictable at this point

Agreed. Where is Lurker to give us updates on TIDAL. The "charity" concert went down, did Highbridge show interest?

Jay Z is fine. His businesses are booming. Whoever started this rumor obviously rely on ignorant people who lack critical thinking skills to think for themselves as they will believe anything reported... Prince's family will do the right thing by him... nothing to see here.

Jayz publicist put this out to make it seem as if he isn't broke but we all know everything this clown touches goes down in a billowed smoke. Why won't he take a few business courses and stop making a fool of himself, Rihanna is this idiots primary source of income. This lame snatched his unplayed catalogs off streaming services and felt the pinch of poverty, then quietly returned them because he missed those checks. Jayz is a failure due to his inability to conduct a successful business deal. Such a loser... better pay live nation those promised concerts before they kill him to get their money back

@1:05 I don't think so bc real estate sales are usually kept public record BUT I'm sure he will be unloading it soon.
