Kanye West has cut ties with the streaming service Tidal over a $20 million dispute with Jay-Z, TMZ reports. On top of that, the "Famous" rapper says the company owes him for music videos, which Tidal says West never delivered. That allegedly was the moment when Kanye's lawyers made a decision to send another letter to Tidal saying that the contract was over.

The Heartless rapper, 40, is said to be unhappy with his pal after reportedly being targeted in Jay-Z's new album, 4:44.

The dispute has another prong, as well: The release of West's Saint Pablo resulted in 1.5 million new Tidal subscribers, for which West was supposed to get a bonus but hasn't.

He also says Tidal didn't keep up its word on reimbursing him for music videos, whereas on Tidal's end, West didn't deliver the videos required by the contract. Music CEO left JAY-Z's streaming service because the company breach their contract.

The fued between Kanye West and Jay-Z has reached a new level due to a reported lawsuit filed by Kanye West. / "Fuck wrong with everybody?' is what you sayin' / But if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane, ' raps Jay".

Along with the wind, multiple downed power lines caused other ignition points in the Gatlinburg area, complicating the case. They said crews had worked tirelessly along with members of the ATF and National Parks Service to investigate the case.


Hollywoodlife.com reports that Kanye is getting ready to clap back at Jay-Z with his own revenge track. On Nov. 19 of a year ago during a concert in Sacramento, Kanye stopped the show to rant about his relationship with the music mogul.

West's gripe with Tidal is in two parts. "Please don't send them at my head". Prior to this, Kanye had engaged in a few public rants about Jay Z (among many other subjects) on stage.

In an interview coinciding with the album's release, JAY-Z said "Kill JAY-Z" is "really about the ego".

Apparently, problems between Kanye and Jay-Z started some time ago.
