Kanye Wests falls out with Tidal, could go legal

Jay-Kim-Kanye-West-1499091144

The two rappers have been feuding ever since West addressed Jay Z and Beyoncé while performing on his "The Life of Pablo" Tour- a tour that was short lived after West was checked into the hospital for exhaustion, E News noted. "We get why he [Jay] was upset, but give Kanye a break". Through lawyers, West has terminated his contract with the company although Tidal refuses to recognize West's exit.

According to TMZ's sources, Kanye doesn't want to enter any new exclusive album release contracts with streaming services for any of his upcoming albums.

West is now mired in a dispute with Tidal - which is owned by his longtime collaborator JAY-Z - after he left the streaming service due to disagreements over what is owed to him, according to TMZ. "The Life of Pablo" was exclusively on Tidal for about six weeks before it could be streamed on other services like Apple Music.

Kanye West and Jay-Z's bromance may finally be over.

Kanye West has been in the news quite a bit this past weekend, mostly due to his participation, or lackthereof, on TIDAL and platforms of the same ilk. West is also alleging that Tidal has failed to reimburse him for music videos.

Last week, Jay-Z treated Tidal users to his long-awaited new album 4:44.

As reported by TMZ,West claims Jay Z owes him $3 million from Tidal but he actually never received it. Ye said he's no longer interested in releasing music through exclusive streaming deals and his next album, which he's now working on, will be available everywhere.

"Top o" the morning", he says in the self-shot video, "I wanna shoot a shout-out to Jay-Z - just dropped another motherf***ing hot album, "4:44'".

TMZ later said, citing anonymous sources "with knowledge of the conflict between Kanye and Tidal", that West is no longer interested in being exclusive to any one streaming service.

Neither West, who has closed his Twitter and Instagram accounts, nor Tidal have commented publicly.
