Is Kanye West getting ready to be the next rival streaming service?
Kanye West has made it incredibly clear over the course of time that he plans on pursuing much more than music in his lifetime. The rapper has already created a wildly successful clothing brand with Yeezy and has stated plans to run for presidency, although it's unsure how serious the latter is. However, one thing that's been rumored in the past is that he has intentions of launching a streaming service called, Yeezy Sound. The rumor simply stems from the fact that he reportedly trademarked "Yeezy Sound" for purposes that include “streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content over the internet.” However, Mike Dean latest tweet seems to imply that 'Ye's moving forward with it.
Mike Dean took to Twitter to reveal a brief but telling update on "Yeezy Sound." He wrote, "GLAD TO BE A PART OF YEEZY SOUND." While the short tweet could mean anything, due to previous speculations, it seems as if Kanye's working towards launching the streaming service. In addition, this could all be part of his plan for the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music releases. He's previously announced four projects from the camp including his solo album and collaborative effort with Kid Cudi alongside Teyana Taylor and Pusha-T's album. In addition, he also revealed Nas' album, although Escobar isn't part of the camp.
At this point, it's simply speculation but maybe we'll end up seeing Kanye West actually launch his own streaming service in the future. We'll keep you updated.
