Did Tidal Rip Off Prince?


The Estate of the late rocker Prince accuses Tidal of putting out unauthorized music...

From TMZ
Sources tell TMZ the estate fired off a letter to Jay's team last month, saying it had no interest in signing a deal for "Roc Nation to exploit any of the intellectual property assets of the Estate."
More bad news -- the estate is calling out Tidal for making 15 Prince albums available for streaming a couple months after his death. Those releases were unauthorized according to the estate.
The estate does acknowledge Prince made a deal with Jay for the 2015 release of his final album, "HitNRun Phase One" -- but also says it hasn't found proof of a $750k payment to close that deal.

@10:57pm I believe it's call protecting someone estate since Prince is longer here to protect his music.

Unless there is proof of the 750k payment, then no one one verify if the deal is made

@11:20 and 11:23. Yes it's all about protection. And Jay Z is being greedy. Trying to take everyone's Master's. First biggie, then pac, now Prince and Rhianna

I knew something was wrong with that relationship...and wondered if money had to do with his demise. Why anybody would get in bed with Jay z is beyond me.

Thank you 12:10! It's beyond me why anyone would do business with an unscrupulous figurehead shill for whatever entity Jay-Z works for. Hell, he's also part of the reason Hilary lost (thinking she could trot out he and Beyonce and it would drive Black folks to the polls.)

If Puffy is poison Jay-Z is an anvil around one's neck or a millstone dragging someone down. If he showed up with a "free" Mercedes, I bet some people would take it not thinking of the consequences. Prince should have known better and done his Googles before getting into bed with that huckster/hustler/liar/thief.

It's business, what Live Nation didn't factor in was Prince's Estate lack of counter offer - oh well.

lmao @8:54... You are a PLANT!... More than likely you are a white person that is PAID by non black entities designed to steer black people to HARMS WAY or to their death. BLACK PEOPLE don't listen to this rioting bullsh#t!.. As black people we have endured a lot worse than Trump. We did 8 years of Bush.... Don't let this PROVOCATEUR lead you astray. They want black people to cause civil strife so they can call for MARTIAL LAW!... If you want to FIGHT THE POWER. ... Empower yourself and Empower the community to succeed in the classroom and the boardroom. Fight the Power by being a Success!

Black people protest for what?

Naw y'all, anyway they use the buck dancer however they choose and he's down, for the continued illusion he is better than someone and that could not be further from reality

In reality he is the lowest of the low a greedy pawn who actually is a cheap one
All black people need to do is pray and unite

No dividers or weakeners allowed

What is the problem? They made a deal, execute. No problems here, just finish the deal. Prince would have wanted it that way.
