After being lead to believe that all that all things were good between JAY-Z and Kanye West following the former’s rant at a concert late last year – everything with these two has just went south.
According to TMZ, Jigga Man and Yeezy are now at odds over a money dispute relating to JAY-Z’s streaming service Tidal.
Reportedly Kanye West brought about 1.5 million new subscribers to the online streaming service after the release of his 2016 album, The Life of Pablo. The boost in subscriber numbers was supposed to net ‘Ye a cool $3 million bonus check. 17 months later, Kanye has not received said bonus check so his lawyers sent a letter to Tidal to let them know they are in breach of their contract– thus freeing him to leave the company.
Yeezy’s lawyers also claimed that Tidal was failed to reimburse him for the cost of several music videos as promised.
Now here’s where it gets messier. TMZ sources claim Tidal has replied to Yeezy in a letter stating that he’s still legally tied to his Tidal contract and is at risk of being sued if he tries to go to another streaming service for future distribution of his music.
Of course, this all comes after JAY-Z took shots at Kanye West on his new album 4:44.
On the title track, Hov says:
“I know people backstab you, I feel bad too / But this [expletive] everybody attitude ain’t natural / But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe / But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye / You gave him 20 million without thinkin’ / He gave you 20 minutes on stage [expletive]was he thinkin’? / [expletive] wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’ / But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane."
According to Complex, Kim Kardashian is reportedly upset that JAY-Z dissed her husband and “thinks it was a low blow to diss Kanye and throw around words like ‘insane’ after all he’s been through.”
