There is more trouble in paradise between Jay-Z and Kanye West to report. Last week Jay dropped his new album 4:44 tat included a few jabs at his lil bro Kanye. Today it has been revealed that Ye has left TIDAL which is the music streaming service that is owned by Jay-Z.
TIDAL received a letter from Kanye’s lawyer last month claiming that the rapper was owed $3 million and since he had not received payment for his ownership stake in the company his contract was null and void.
According to the documents, West’s last album “The Life Of Pablo” was responsible for 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal last year and he was supposed to receive a bonus and never did.
Ye also claims that a portion of the money owed is from videos that he was supposed to be reimbursed for.
Both sides had been trying to resolve the issue, but were unable to come to an agreement. After weeks of negotiations Kanye’s lawyers sent another letter to TIDAL insisting that the rapper’s contract be terminated.
TIDAL is saying that Kanye is still legally obligated to the contract, and if he goes to any other streaming service he will be sued.
