TIDAL hasn't exactly gotten off to a blazing start.

Barter 6. Cherry Bomb. OMEEKA. This week was filled with activity in the hip hop world, and as usual, a lot of it spilled onto Twitter. We saw a little bit of non-confrontational beef, some trolling and some self-congratulatory behavior-- so it was a pretty standard week, all in in all.
