The spat with West is not the first Tidal artist relationship to result in legal dispute.

But Tidal streamed Kanye West's The Life of Pablo for way too long, and the rapper was none too pleased.

Jay Z's streaming music service Tidal has been in the news recently because of its partnership with Sprint.

About one month ago, West's lawyers sent Jay-Z a letter stating that Tidal owed the rapper $3 million and was in breach of contract.

During a concert, Kanye, who was on the brink of a breakdown ranted that Jay Z hasn't been calling him to ask how he and his family were doing and even begged the producer not to have him killed.

According to TMZ, West's decision to split from his frequent collaborator's company predates the release of Jay Z's new album, 4:44, in which he trashed the husband of Kim Kardashian.

Musician Kanye West has reportedly terminated his contract with Tidal, the streaming service started by Jay-Z, West's former friend and mentor.


"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star #Kim Kardashian is reportedly anxious about her husband #Kanye West's emotional and #mental health over his feud with Jay Z.

"We're told Kanye's beef with TIDAL is twofold", TMZ writes.

West's latest album The Life Of Pablo reportedly brought 1.5 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposedly meant to receive a bonus that the company hasn't paid.

He also claims that the company never reimbursed him for music videos.

Tidal is understood to have had an exclusive agreement with West and could sue if he joins another service.

"But this "f**k everybody" attitude ain't natural/But you ain't the same, this ain't KumbaYe (sic)/But you got hurt because you think KumbaYe/You gave him 20 million without thinking/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinking?"
