Kanye West Is Reportedly Done With Exclusive Streaming Releases for His Music

The situation between former Crown bros JAY-Z and Kanye West isn't good.

"You dropped outta school, you lost your principles / You gave him 20 million without thinking/ He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinking?" the verse goes. West's attorney reached out to the outfit a month ago to talk about the company's breach of contract, and that attempts to effectively come to a resolution lasted for two fruitless weeks.

The rapper and fashion designer is reportedly splitting with Jay's Tidal streaming service and insists that they him owe $3 million.

The split reportedly stems from West's Life of Pablo album, which brought 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal.

A part of Tidal's strategy has been to tie up artists to exclusive releases of their projects on the music platform.

Xi departs Hong Kong after speech, inauguration
Earlier, China's President Xi presided over a swearing-in ceremony for Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's fifth chief executive since 1997. Minor scuffles broke out under a blue sky as pro-democracy activists, some with banners bearing the words "Democracy".

Despite all that shade, Kanye's suit predates the release of the album, even though that would've added some honey to the tea.

Apparently Kanye says that Tidal was supposed to reimburse him for music videos that he put out. West's actions were a response to Jay-Z's lyrics, but this legal dispute seems to have dragged on for at least a month previous. "I don't got Tidal, so a n***a had to bootleg it to me", he says, "I'm on iTunes and s**t cuz, I don't understand that s**t - y'all gotta explain that to me".

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.

Back in November, Kanye publicly singled out JAY-Z during a live show. Beyonce's husband recently released his new album 4:44 and is allegedly targeting West in one of his tracks, which concerns the socialite big time.

West was one of the co-owners of Tidal, according to U.S. magazine.
