Kanye West Demands Apple Pay Jay Z for TIDAL

  /  07.31.2016

Kanye West has had it with streaming wars.

On Saturday (Jul. 30), Yeezus tried to bring music streaming platforms together in his latest Twitter tirade.

“This Tidal Apple beef is fucking up the music game,” he wrote. “I need Tim Cook Jay Z Dez Jimmy Larry me and Drake Scooter on the phone or in a room this week!!!”




After calling for a meeting between those forces in music, technology, and entertainment, ‘Ye added that Spotify CEO Daniel Ek should also be on the phone with them this week.

In another tweet, Pablo seemed to confirm reports that Apple has been in talks to acquire TIDAL.

“Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now,” wrote Mr. West, “and stop trying to act like you Steve.”


Kanye’s latest album The Life of Pablo was released as a TIDAL exclusive earlier this year. That project, along with exclusives like Beyoncé’s LEMONADE and Rihanna’s ANTI, helped the streaming service gain ground on Apple Music and Spotify.

For its part, Apple also has a team of stars on its roster. That list includes Drake, DJ Khaled, Future, and Chance the Rapper, who’ve all released exclusive projects this year.
