Looks like Jay-Z's Tidal just lost a great amount of their profit, as Kanye West walks away from the service. He claims that the company still owes him $3 million dollars!
According to the Shade Room:
Though the timing looks like the decision to split with Tidal was after the release of Jay Z’s highly anticipated album 4:44 (to which Jay Z touches on disputes with Kanye), according to legal documents the truth is Kanye has been unhappy with the company for a long time and just last month he had his lawyer send a letter to Tidal saying the company was in breach of their contract.
TMZ confirms Tidal has issued a letter to Kanye’s lawyers specifying as far as the company was concerned, they have an exclusive agreement with Ye, and if he tries to go to another streaming service they’d sue him.
