Kanye West Critiques the TIDAL-Apple Music Rivalry for ‘F**king Up the Music Game’

"Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop tying to act like you Steve"

Kanye West is known as a big supporter of Jay Z’s TIDAL music streaming service — he appeared beside Jay at the service’s launch, and he used its live-streaming capabilities to debut his latest album The Life of Pablo, which was a TIDAL exclusive for weeks. In a series of tweets today, West criticized the TIDAL vs. Apple Music rivalry for “f**king up the music game” and called for Apple to buy its competitor.

“Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve,” West wrote, referring to recent rumors that the late Steve Jobs’ company was seeking to acquire TIDAL. West also asked for a conference call involving Jay Z, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Apple Music advisor Jimmy Iovine, Apple Music rep Drake, and others.
