Like I said you can't change what's happening up top unless you get up top you can't change what's happening in the building till you get in the building...... Niggas want Jay to change the world from the block....if apple were to buy Tidal you'd literally have the whole urdan music genre under one roof Jay, Bey, Drake, Dre, Ye, Nicki, Rih, Cole, TI, Wayne etc a change could be made

    I personally don't want him to sell becuz I enjoy tidal as it's own sperate entity but I could also see the bigger benefit in doing it

    Never heard of that "urdan" genre.

    Also jay spit a freestyle dissing big corporations like Spotify and Apple in his B Side show. To sell and then co work with apple music would be hypocritical in principle.

    Really niggas is spell check police in here now smh

    He spit a freestyle about fans not having a problem with them having money but having a problem with him tryna get paid

    " niggas skeptical when it's they own shit, you bought 9 iPhones and Steve Jobs rich, Phil Knight worth trillions you still bought those kids, Spotify 9 million they ain't say shit, Lucy you got sum explaining to do only one they hating on looks the same as you"

    See this what happens when you listen with hate instead of actually hearing what's being said you become misinformed then you misinform others

    If Jay sells Tidal he will win but it's going to also be an L. He's got Prince's music! Y'all niggas ain't seen how much Prince made when he died? Man all the record stores in Charlotte ran the fuck out of his music everytime they got some shit. People were buying the fuck out of some Prince vinyl. Man if Jay(or whoever runs it) sells Tidal, Prince's music is going to be so easy to stream. Prince did not want that. I can see Jay selling shit so he can brag about getting more money lol

    Corny jokes? Jay made a freestyle where he falsely stated someone owning 9 i phones. That is a fact. You were wrong to think apple was getting rid of i tunes when speculative reports only mentioned a possibility that the i tunes store was getting cut that is a fact.

    He gave them the rights to stream his music but only tidal. Most of this was due to how tidal was set up to help the artist. So Jay would literally be selling out Princes music to the company or companies prince never wanted getting it should he sell tidal.

    Mind you Prince ain't even have a will for his money but he left tidal with the rights to his music. So Jay not actually doing a deal would be the only way to preserve the one thing price decided to take care of before he died.

    Alot of niggas was eating because of Tidal. For one, the money and violence niggas.

    Ownership is important. I hope Hov don't sell.

    Nigga so? When did Shawn Carter become obligated to put food in a nigga mouth? The only reason I don't want him to sell is so those cacs can't have Prince music. Anything other than that is selfish bullshit. Let that man be great how he chooses.

    Well for one, U contradicted yourself....

    2. Hov was adamant about supporting blk business

    3. I actually have Tidal. I have vested interest in Tidal with my dollars... Monthly...Therefore I can discuss this.

    In other words Jay brags about his European paintings and cars but he gets mad when people buythe lastest i phones but won't buy into tidal? Sounds hypocritical.

    Tidal is losing money, they about to pay pennies on the dollar for it

    Companies like Apple. Anheuser Busch,etc don't buy companies that's losing money. They buy companies that poses a threat to them.

    not entirely true at all, but you know nothing about business, tidal is still losing money but apple can easily flip it with that portfolio, tidal will never in a million years take down apple or be a real threat. just look at the subscriber counts :(

    I think Jay's goal is to take Tidal public, in doing so he could easily make a billion dollars through an Initial Public Offering. All his partners would make millions in the process.

    I keep telling you fools that Tidal doesn't need to do Apple or Spotify numbers to be successful. Yall seem to think multiple companies can't be successful in the same space. Apple is Walmart, but there is room for Target.

    But you got to admit that it's pretty stupid to have to sign up for a whole streaming service just to listen to one album. You come out better just buying the album in a store and just using your current service. Why I got to pay 8.99 a month for 3 different streaming services just to make sure I get my hands on certain artists albums? That's not good at all.

    When cutler admitting i am right you know yall niggas caping for hov. At the end of the day if jay decides to sell tidal to a larger company he is selling out his alleged motive to make tidal. That being it was a smaller scale streaming service for the fan and the artist.

    If jay doesn't then hey he is sticking by his morals. Now can tidal long term stick around with it's small amount of user base like usmarine says? Only time will tell.

    If Jay signs a deal that gives all his artist a better deal, more exposure and accessibility, is he still not supporting black business?

    If those artist get a worldwide radio show like Dre, Drake, Khaled and QTip...isn't that supporting black business?

    If iPhones are still the most popular in the market and people are taking up the Apple Music and can watch money and violence which is 10m subscribers...isn't that supporting black artists?

    It's whether Jay negotiates a deal that is just good for him or is good for his artists too.
