So, we all know that things between Jay Z and Kanye haven't been good for a while now, but it seems Kanye wants to take it to the next level.

It all started off last year when Kanye publically stated he was disappointed in Jay Z and Beyonce for not checking in on his wife Kim after she was robbed in Paris.

But now, the Saint Pablo rapper is suing Jay Z's company Tidal.

In Jay's new album, he makes reference to his friendship with Kanye, and seems to have no regrets about how things turned out with his former BFF.

The lyrics include:

“You walkin’ around like you invincible
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles
I know people backstab you, I felt bad too
But this ‘f*ck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural
But you ain’t a Saint, this ain’t KumbaYe
But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye
You gave him 20 million without blinkin’
He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*ck was he thinkin’?
“F*ck wrong with everybody?” is what you sayin’
But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane”

After fans figured out the lyrics in Kill Jay Z, Kanye was swift to leave the company he founded with Jay and is now bringing a lawsuit upon him.

Kanye is stating that he's "owed $3 million" from Tidal, and has apparently sent a letter to the company telling them they were "in breach and the contact was terminated."

The Saint Pablo album brought in more than one million subscribers to the music streaming service, and TMZ states that Kanye was meant to receive a bonus – which he never got.

It gets complicated though, because Tidal say that Kanye "didn't deliver the videos required by contract," and furthermore, are threatening to counter sue him if he uses another streaming service, since they have an "exclusive contract."

Can't we all just go back to 2012 and Watch The Throne?!


At last week's TidalX1020 concert, the night was filled with megastars doing what they do best; but the most memorable performance of them all was Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj. 

But of course they didn't just show up and perform; no, these ladies went through gruelling rehearsals so everything went down perfectly. 

Considering how flawless their performance was, you know they put in a lot of work backstage. And at the beginning of the week we got a tiny glimpse of some of those intense preparations – which includes a staring contest.

Beyoncé can fix her own dress, thank you very much.

The singer appeared at an event for Tidal Music in New York last night, and was keen to get as much camera time on the red carpet as possible.

So keen, in fact, that she shushed her personal assistant away rather than stand there and have her dress adjusted.

Beyoncé's assistant Sam Greenberg is usually pretty adept at fading into the background, but she made headlines all over the world last night when she was spotted looking totally flustered after Beyoncé coldly told her to go away – in front of the cameras.

The video has already gone viral since being posted to Twitter last night:

Sam had stepped in to adjust Beyoncé's plum-coloured Phillip Plein dress and fur stole, but the singer only endured her for a second or two before saying "stop it" under her breath, while still smiling broadly for the gathered photographers.

Poor Sam is seen darting away, no doubt fearing for her job after the rebuff.

Having been Bey's PA for almost three years now though, we reckon Sam's career is still safe.

Plus, we're sure she's suffered worse at the hands of her famous boss before now.



Three months ago, the star studded launch of ‘Tidal’ was held in New York City. Tidal is the online music streaming service which Jay-Z bought into a few months ago.

Tidal differs to other music streaming websites as it promises to give high royalty fees to artists and provide high quality music.

But things are not going so well for the music service. The Tidal CEO Peter Tonstad has quit the job already, a mere three months after the launch of the music site.

Despite its high-profile re-launch, Tidal has been struggling to find a customer base to make it a success.

The website has had a very difficult time since the spring as it has just 800,000 paying subscribers compared to the 20 million currently subscribed to Spotify.  

Jay-Z bought the music system in March for a huge sum of €50million, but it doesn’t seem to be giving him the best return.

When the brand re-launched after Jay-Z got involved, the social media coverage it received was very negative.

Since joining the company, this is the second CEO Jay-Z has to say goodbye to, with Andy Chen leaving shortly after Jay-Z signed up.

Tidal is about to encounter even more competition now that Apple has revealed plans to launch a streaming service of its own, Apple Music. Maybe it's time for Jay-Z to cut his losses…
