According to TMZ Kanye West and Jay-Z have a meeting planned to squash their beef. The two plan on sitting down face to face and settling the issues that have plagued their relationship for the last few years. The two plan to clear the air on everything including their multi-million dollar dispute about royalties from Jay’s streaming music service Tidal.
Sources close to Yeezy and Hova with direct knowledge of the situation tell us, their lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute Kanye has with Tidal. As we reported, Kanye had fired off a letter to Tidal stating his contract with them was over because Tidal didn’t live up to his end of the bargain. Specifically, Kanye says he didn’t get advances and bonuses that totaled $3.5 mil.
TMZ goes on to explain:
We’re told Kanye and Jay have not agreed to settle, and the reason became apparent to everyone. The impasse had nothing to do with their business dispute — $3.5 mil is peanuts to both of them. They couldn’t settle because they each harbor animosity toward the other.
Jay was enraged when Kanye attacked Beyonce and Blue Ivy at his concert last October. Kanye felt Jay should have cut him a break because that was the time he was melting down and just a few weeks after the concert, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.
As one source put it, “The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake.
The meeting should happen soon, and hopefully these two can squash the beef and get back to making great music together.
