Way back in the day, Kaye a West and Jay-Z were thick as thieves. Musically, they were on the same page and their rapport and combined talent helped spur on Kanye West’s career and renewed interest in Jay-Z. Together, they even launched superstar Rihanna’s career. More like brothers than friends, it should be no surprise that there appears to be a family feud brewing.
It started last November when West’s wife was robbed while staying in Paris. When news of the break-in and theft reached West while he was in the middle of a show, he abruptly left the stage citing personal issues and went to be with his wife. Unfortunately, I guess Jay-Z didn’t feel the news was that big a deal because he allegedly didn’t pick up a phone to call and see how the Mrs. West was doing. The rap mogul didn’t even send send a fruit basket.
But the ill feelings are now passing into their Tidal streaming music venture. West is said to be disassociating himself from his friends label over money. TMZ is reporting that West says the company owes him $3,000,000. He had his legal representative send a letter stating if he’s not paid, Tidal is in breech of contract. The notice basically said if you don’t pay, I won’t play.
Both sides agreed to sit down and sort through things to get it straightened out. But neither artists’ side could reach a mutual agreement, with Kanye’s people issuing notice that he is no longer under contract to Tidal. But Tidal came back that West is under exclusive contract with them and they’ll see him in court if he appears anywhere else. TMZ says that Kanye’s willing to forget the money and just walk away, but if Tidal sues, he’ll sue right back.
