This whole Tidal shit is funny as fuck to me, especially with stupid ass niggas. 6 months ago these same mfs were claiming Jay-z was Illuminati and in cahoots with them. Now these same mfs are celebrating with the struggles of Tidal. Which is it? He sold his sold to these crackas or not, because he wouldn't be getting opposition if he did.
It seems to me that it's a obvious smear campaign on some deliberate shit. All these companies (Apple, Spotify, Pitchfork, Tech companies,etc) have working relationships with each other. They are protecting investments and being bias with their criticism.
actually the reverse could be asked of jay. does he want to play with the big boys or does he wanna bitch about his race and say the games not fair. Fact of the matter is part of getting to a billion is he has to face rivals like spotify/apple/google in a flooded marketplace. Just how Jays rocafella empire bodied allot of competing rappers trying to be moguls spotify is doing the same shit to tidal. Jay either needs to fight fair and stop whinning about racism or sell the company and step away from the big boys.
While his race and his original line of career (rapper) are a very small part of why people are going in on him the majority of the spotify warfare has nothing to with his race. Its because they are a killing machine trying to kill competition. Granted Jays launch and lack of freemium service has killed himself really.
