Tidal and Universal Fighting Over Prince Catalogue


Last week Universal Music Group Publishing announced their new distribution deal with the estate of the late rocker Prince [click here if you missed that].

So where does that leave Jay Z and Tidal...?

Fighting over the rights to Prince's music apparently.

According to multiple reports Prince only gave Tidal a one year exclusive deal to stream his music.

However, Jay Z and Tidal are threatening to file an injunction if the new Universal deal violates their agreement.

The case is pending.

Prince was one smart little guy. He gave Jay a one year probationary period to pull off the upset win with Tidal. And he failed.

The deal the estate worked out with Universal is a sound one, being that the estate retains ownership.

@ 2:19 - oh and Universal, Columbia, and all them other Jewish owned music companies aren't? MOFOs will never support a Black man, no matter how successful they are. Just ask Barack Obama.
