Kanye West Doesn't Want to Do Any More Exclusive Streaming Deals

Bustle has reached out to representatives for JAY-Z, Kanye West, and Tidal for comment, but did not receive a response.

Kanye accused Tidal of failing to give him a bonus for the Saint Pablo album, which was a huge success and helped Tidal get no less than 1.5 million new subscribers. Citing unnamed sources, the publication said "Kanye has complained the company owes him money-more than $3 million".

But Jay Z fought back, and his lawyers sent a letter stating that they 'still have an exclusive contract with Kanye and if he goes to another streaming service, they will sue him'.

Rapper Kanye West, one of the founding co-owners of Tidal, reportedly has left that music-streaming service in a contract dispute over money.

In addition, the company did not reimburse him for his music videos despite promising to do so. So, we can surely assume at this point that Kanye and Jay-Z have been feuding even before Jay-Z's diss track.

It all started off previous 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.

When Tidal didn't respond by meeting his request, Kanye reportedly had his lawyer send a letter to the company around a month ago, alleging breach of contract and asserting that the relationship had been terminated.

Kanye owes much of his career to Jay-Z, and Kanye produced or featured on some of Jay's biggest hits. "You still ain't called me", he added.

RadarOnline.com revealed recently how Jay-Z had dissed Kanye on his new album 4:44 over a reported $20 million loan.

In new song Kill Jay Z, the star raps: "You walking around like you invincible/You dropped out of school, you lost your principles/I know people backstabbed you, I felt bad too".

After the Paris robbery, the Life of Pablo rapper called out Jay-Z in a rant at a concert. / "Fuck wrong with everybody?" is what you sayin' / But if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane.

He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*ck was he thinkin'?
