Sources say that a month ago Kanyeâs lawyer sent a letter to Tidal, saying the company was in breach and the contract was terminated. Over the next 2 weeks lawyers for both sides tried to resolve the conflict but failed, reportsÂ TMZ.
Weâre told 2 weeks ago Kanyeâs lawyer fired off a second letter declaring again the contract was over. Kanyeâs decision to split from Tidal predates the release of Jay Zâs album in which he trashes Kanye, and weâre told Kanye had no advance knowledge of Jayâs lyrics.
Weâre told Kanyeâs beef with Tidal is twofold â his The Life of Pablo album resulted in 1 1/2 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasnât paid. Kanye also says Tidal reneged on reimbursing him for music videos.
On the other hand, sources also say Tidalâs position is that Kanye didnât deliver the videos required by the contract.
Kanyeâs response â¦ Iâll deliver the videos when you pay me what Iâm owed.
Weâre told Tidal fired off a letter to Kanye, saying as far as the company was concerned it still had an exclusive contract with the rapper and if he tried to go to another streaming service theyâd sue him.
Weâre told Kanyeâs willing to walk away, but if Tidal sues him, heâll sue them right back.
Hmm, something isnât right with this picture. Even though Kanye and Jay-Z arenât on the same page in their personal lives, thereâs no reason why Kanye shouldnât get paid for what he brought to the party.
