Kanye West Reportedly Splits From Tidal

Ever since Jay-Z released his 13th studio album, “4:44,” on Friday, in which he sent subtle shots towards his former little brother Kanye West, many have been wondering about what was to come for their relationship. We may now have the answer. According to TMZ, Kanye West has left Tidal, accusing the company of owing him over $3 million and Tidal is threatening to sue.


Last year, Yeezy placed “The Life Of Pablo” on Tidal exclusively, encouraging all of his fans to get the streaming service if they wanted to hear his new music. Reportedly, this move gained Tidal 1 1/2 million new subscribers. Kanye says he hasn’t been paid his commission for that.


A month ago, Kanye’s lawyers sent a letter to Tidal, terminating Ye’s contract and claiming the company was in breach. Lawyers on both sides worked for two weeks to resolve the issues, but nothing came of it. Two weeks ago, Kanye’s lawyers sent a 2nd letter, reiterating that the contract deal is over. Tidal fired back with a letter of their own, informing Kanye that as far as the company was concerned, they are still under an exclusive contract, therefore if he takes his talents to another streaming service, they will sue.


According to Kanye’s lawyers, Tidal also owes the rapper reimbursement for music videos. However, Tidal says Kanye never delivered the videos required by the contract.


Rumors of Jay-Z and Kanye’s friendship ending have been ongoing. Fans assumed something was up when “Watch The Throne 2” never came to fruition, but the rumors were confirmed years later when Kanye took to the stage at a Saint Pablo tour stop in Sacramento and called out Jay and Beyonce.


At the time Ye said, “Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling.'” He also said, “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life, my own success, my own career. Jay-Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay-Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”


According to Kanye, Jay-Z never called to check on him after Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris. He also says their children have never played together.


On Friday, Jay-Z addressed Kanye’s onstage rant. In the song “Kill Jay-Z,” he says:


“I know people backstab you, I felt that too/But this ‘fuck everybody attitude’ ain’t natural/But you ain’t the same, this ain’t Kumba ‘Ye/But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye /You give him $20 million without blinking/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck what was he thinking?/’Fuck wrong with everybody?’ is what you saying/But if everyone is crazy, you’re the one that’s insane.”



It looks like this friendship is going to get messier before it gets better.

  1. People act like Kanye is crazy but he just wears his emotions on his sleeve. Ni99a thought Jay was his real friend and then you diss him and you owe the ni99a money. I’d take Kanye’s discography over Jay’s any day, that 4:44 is trash only song I like is Caught Their Eyes ft Frank Ocean. Ni99as really think Jay dropping knowledge by saying invest your money and buy property, ni99a shut the f#ck up, you fake deep ni99a. Kanye believes in Jesus, is in a interracial relationship, no kids out of wedlock, made a song about his mama before she died, great albums, spoke out against George Bush during Katrina. People always talk about how they want the stars to show their real self but when someone like Kanye does it, you hate it?Jay we not gon’ forget yo’ mama a lesbo too, probably took one of yo’ b!tches you ugly ni99a.

      Terrell Jones you took the words right out of my mouth wen will people open their eyes an see the truth? Jay Z is not what people think he is…I just hope in the end people open they eyes an stop sayinonlg Kanye possessed an all that nonsense…I haven’t listened to the new album nor do I plan to. Kanye is real as they get there is nothing but knowledge to be learned by him. the man is a genius an passionate about his work. people mistake his dedication to his beliefs as crazy but if you really sit down an listen they may learn something. The man is not a clone nor under any influence he just says what everyone else is afraid to. His only mistake is believing that you can actually be friends with someone like Jay Z. You see how he did Dame an Beenie…im just saying!

  2. Have to side with Kanye here. He jumped on stage to defend Beyonce, their families were supposed to be friends. Then why haven’t their children played together? Why didn’t Beyonce call Kim to see if she was okay? Cause they are NOT friends and Beyonce never liked her! She just play nice for the cameras and business. Watch Kanye cause he is the one that is going to keep it realist here. J & B like to play games for sales so I wouldn’t put much past them, ijs. But if Jigga owe him money he need to pay up!
