Kanye West Splits with Tidal


Kanye West leaves Tidal over money dispute...

From TMZ
Sources connected to Tidal tell TMZ, Kanye has been unhappy with the company for a long time. We're told Kanye has complained the company owes him money -- more than $3 million. Our sources say a month ago Kanye's lawyer sent a letter to Tidal, saying the company was in breach and the contract was terminated. Over the next 2 weeks lawyers for both sides tried to resolve the conflict but failed. We're told 2 weeks ago Kanye's lawyer fired off a second letter declaring again the contract was over.
We're told Kanye's beef with Tidal is twofold -- his The Life of Pablo album resulted in 1 1/2 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasn't paid. Kanye also says Tidal reneged on reimbursing him for music videos. 
Our sources say Tidal's position is that Kanye didn't deliver the videos required by the contract. Kanye's response ... I'll deliver the videos when you pay me what I'm owed. We're told Tidal fired off a letter to Kanye, saying as far as the company was concerned it still had an exclusive contract with the rapper and if he tried to go to another streaming service they'd sue him. We're told Kanye's willing to walk away, but if Tidal sues him, he'll sue them right back.

Tidal was a disaster from the outset. We all called it and the stans accused us of being "crabs" like they are in the previous post. Using common sense aint being crabs in a barrel its just using common sense!

Jay Z is claiming he loaned Kanye 20 mil. Could that be the reason Kanye didn't get his 3 mil? Then again they say Jay Z is a crook. Was this the reason for the Wests 'secret' visit to the Carters? *goes to get popcorn*

Kanye wish he had remained loyal to Damon Dash instead.

That pic looks like old Kanye. Cute, healthy, breathing. Not the cut out Malt Licca Kanye the koven wants us to believe is him.

And I guess he only has owes Jay:Z $17 mil. :/

Jay z neved loaned Kanyne 20 Million, think about this...

This is the man that has been caught in tons a lies, Im sure everyone on this blog believed jay when he said he owned the nets and built the staduim.......

THE PERCENTAGE BE OWNED WAS SUPPOSED TO REMAIN PRIVATE IT WAS LEAKED TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, WHO TOLD THE WORLD, HAD THEY NOT, HE WOULD STILL BE CLAIMING IT.

JAY Z DOES NOT HAVE TWENTY MILLION CASH, SITTING AROUND TO GIVE TO ANYONE...ARTIST ON ROC NATION ARE STRUGGLING WITH RECORDING BUDJET AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS...KANYE EVEN SAID IT IN THIS SUIT.

Man, I hate to see this but it's Jay fault.

Laa soul said...

Well at least he was smart enough to leave Tidal, now if he ditch that gypsy of his he can only come out winning, but I digress...

Shit I'd countersue for the $20 million he owed me and 9 times out of 10 Kanye would be required to pay $17 million but hopefully Jigga aint petty!

Seriously I really don't think one thing has to do with the other. Unless they made some type of arrangement like working without pay until the loan is paid off, he owes him.

not surprised to see kanye be the first o defect so publicly. he looked mad and uncomfortable the whole time he was promoting tidal, when he did. i have a feeling a settlement will be reached. kayne has no filter and will tell jay's business.

^^^lol Kanye can't even get Blue and North a play date or a birthday invite but he's privy to personal business? Nayyy! They haven't fucked with each other like that in years.

They have had beef since 2011 Watch the Throne, I remember them saying they were stopping that tour.

Not trying to be funny but I have a feeling Kanye will be dead in 8 years. Maybe less. Someone is going to murder him or he'll commit suicide. I just have a feeling about it. His clock is ticking...

@ 11:00 pm well he was sure telling some good scoops in those rants when he went on tour. i may not know jay's financial business. but he knows about him behind the scenes/being in the industry. and he was friends long enough with jay and bey to give us some gossip lol

Dummy Kanye has known Jay Z for nearly 17 years. You don't think he knows where some bodies are buried? He already outed him and his wife for buying awards.

^^^that works both ways dummy!!

I guarantee the dirt Kanye has on Jay >>>> any dirt Jay could have on Yeezy.

And another thing "dummy" how did he out them buying awards when that's been said for years? Everything he has ever said "woke" people have known.

Too bad Bey couldnt buy that album of the year award!! I think thats the REAL reason she was crying in the audience when Adele gave that speech. She was like "Damn I wrote them that check and they just gon spit in my face like that"

the thing about it kayne tends to be pretty upfront with his stuff. he parades kim around like she's the queen of england despite her just being famous for a homemade porn video, he's been honest about mismanaging his money, he's shared his feelings about thinking he was responsible for his mom's death and we know he wasn't, but he was open about how he felt if he hadn't pushed her into the la lifestyle she may not have thought she needed surgery, all this to say he doesn't necessarily have anything jay can shame him about cuz he's already told us. the only thing that supposed gay relationship, but since kayne hasn't been talking smack about gay folks, i don't think even that would be held against him hell folks probably be relieved to know kim just a beard. ha ha.

kanye licked beyonce's clit for so long "imma let you finish but beyonce single ladies was the greatest video of all times" NIGGGAAAA GIT THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!!! he did the same shit when Beck won. he as about to snatch the mic but reserved his rant for a backstage ET interview. He spent his whole career dick riding Bey and Jay and neither one of them never gave a single fuck about him or his family. This is all just delicious karma. He gonna get enough of knocking other artists down in order to hoist Bey-Z up on their fake ass pedestals. I ain't got no sympathy for na'an one of these hoes.

Let's see Jigga is known for selling drugs, being on the dl, fathering kids, lying, cheating, stealing, murder, being a puppet, lying about his finances, being a shady businessman, a literal stabber and back stabber, satan worshipper. Just what does Kanye know that we dont?

Anonymous said...

He is not known for most of that, only to people who visit sites like Lipstick Alley and Sandra "Gorilla Face" Rose

6:24 Jay Z is promoting an album, every single dollar counts. What you are seeing is people that are paid to protect his image. The negative comments will reply to counter, discredit or make fun of what your saying. They reply so fast because they have a special account with GOOGLE....CALLED GOOGLE ALERTS.....

GOOGLE ALERTS will notify you whenever certain words or comments are mentioned on the Internet
and give a link to where the comments were made.

Its all part of promoting ones brand, protecting the brand.

Chrissy Snow said...

Agree 6:24& 7:51. It's best to not waste energy even engaging with them. They will disappear as soon as the fabricated hype surrounding Jay-Z's Sweet Tea album dies down.
I can't believe the man who I thought was one of the best hip hop artists out there actually recorded an album of gossip for the blogs. Guess it's time for me to check out Kendrick Lamar & J.cole.

You guys are some crabs and it's just what Black people do. On the blog, in the street and in the work force. Trust that other races know we will never stick together and will tear one another down. Aren't you tired of that mentality?

Anonymous said...

9:18 - Since Jay-Z is such a great businessman and we're all sea creatures bent on destroying such a "woke" pillar of the Black community, answer me this:

- Does 1/19th of 1 percent ownership in the Nets basketball team make someone a savvy businessman or an idiot front person?

-Any word on Irv Gotti, Dame Dash, Suge Knight, J. Prince, and the late Chris Lighty allegedly trying to start a fully Black-owned record and distribution company but Jay-Z allegedly ran back and told Lyor Cohen who squashed it? Does that sound like a businessman who cares about other Black folks or the crab you mentioned?

- Is it true that Dolly Lenz in NYC, The Agency, and Hilton & Hyland here in LA won't show them decent properties anymore because they tour the places, leak the info to the press, then when it comes contract time the accountants say they couple seems insolvent?

-These companies are used to LLCs, LLPs, and complicated shell companies the rich use to shield their wealth and look poor on paper, but people in LA real estate are laughing because it looks like the Carters ARE actually poor?

Overheard at a party off N. Doheny & Oriole last weekend: "Where did all the money go? I thought they were billionaires. Freaking Saudis are more transparent than them."

-Is it true that the Malibu rental is allegedly owned by a family member of one of the Live Nation senior staffers and thus "renting" is a super-fancy front for the outright extortion that's happening at the Carter's expense?

***So until you can speak to all of those issues and why Jay-Z allegedly works against his own interests as well as the interests of real Black business people, you can miss me with that "crab in a barrel" BS.

Fuck you 9:18, how do you know every poster on this blog is black.

THANKS AT 11:04....The PR Trolls will learn today.

Dont even try it here on RWS...

@11:31 and Chrissy Snow EXACTLY !!!

The man is a fraud point blank period.

The album is a gimmick.

Kanye out him on blast & risked his career to do so.

Tidal/ JayZ are acting like Warner Bros and they are treating Kanye like Prince IMO.

They know that Kate's next album is/will be more anticipated than that 444 mess.

JayZ's narcissistic true colors are showing

It's all about attention & control.
Just like his wife....

Anonymous said...

What the fvck isnt a gimmick?? I swear you blockhead bitches just like using words you can barely spell. Kanye and Jay are pretty much the same only Jay is SLIGHTLY smarter and much less childish.

Anonymous said...

^^^ @5:29

Oh yeah ???

He wasn't looking to smart in that elevator

Also Kanye's albums don't require gimmicks

Like plenty of other artist.

But when it comes to the gods of stupid people they HAVE to use gimmicks.

Jay does NOT want to let Kanye go because he KNOWS that people are anticipating his next album.

#No Gimmicks Required
