Kanye has officially ended his agreement with Tidal, and all of his future music will be available on all platforms.
The deal comes to an end after Tidal reportedly failed to honor it's financial obligations to The Life Of Pablo artist. West claims that he wasn't paid his bonus for the 1.5 million new subscribers he was able to rake in after his TLOP release.
Tidal on the other hand claims Kanye hasn't fulfilled his obligations by producing the number of videos he was supposed to alongside the release. Undoubtedly the talks have been in sessions for some time before the release of Jay-Z's 4:44 but Jay's shots on "Kill Jay-Z" must not have helped the situation.
“You walkin’ around like you invincible, you dropped outta school, you lost your principles/I know people backstab you, I felt bad too/But this ‘fuck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural/ But you ain’t a saint, this ain’t KumbaYe/But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye/You gave him 20 million without blinkin/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?/’Fuck wrong with everybody?’ is what you sayin’/But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane,” he raps in his verse.
There's no word on whether Kanye will team up with another streaming company to release exclusives in the future but at this time it seems he's done with exclusive releases in general.
