Hip Hop recording/mogul Jay-Z is rumored to want out of Tidal after realizing that it can not compete with platforms such as Google, Youtube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Music & Etc. Tidal has gone eerily quiet of late, apart from statements of support from Nicki Minaj and Madonna, and the word is that Jay Z is looking to get out. This ambitious undertaking has cost him millions of his own money because he never got the expected funding, he still hasn’t paid the licensing fees to the rights holders and no one is likely to throw him a life-preserver and bail him out, so he has little choice at this point except to stop the bleeding. What will his exit strategy look like? Interesting to note that it’s not Apple, Sony, UMG or WMG that could be putting the final nail in the Tidal coffin, but Cash Money’s Slim and Baby Williams, with their copyright-infringement suit against the service for its recent exclusive with alienated label artist Lil Wayne. This information was leaked right after Birdman the CEO of Cash Money Records made it publicly known that he was suing Tidal for 50 Million dollars for releasing Lil Wayne’s FWA without out their permission.
