As his bizarre Twitter tirade continues, Kanye West this evening has shared that his latest album “The Life of Pablo” will never be on Apple Music and will remain an exclusive to Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service. The tweet was posted in the midst of another rant by Kanye, during which he criticized various new outlets and told everyone to “shut up and enjoy the greatness.”
Kanye owns a stake in Tidal and exclusively made the album available on the platform last Friday, while also holding an event at Madison Square Garden that was exclusively live streamed on the streaming service, as well.
On Friday, West tweeted a plea to a variety of tech moguls like Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page, asking for them to invest “$1 billion into Kanye West ideas,” while also claiming he was $53 million in personal debt. “All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists,” he tweeted. Furthermore, the rapper claimed that he is “this generation’s Disney,” while noting that he apparently “doesn’t have the resources to create what I really can.”
West’s slam of Apple Music comes less than a week after he announced a new video game that allows characters to control his dead mother in angel form and guide her through the gates of heaven on a flying white pegasus in the clouds. Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, brought in around $200 million with her game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood on the App Store, so West is looking to ideally share the same success and get himself out of debt(?).
Whether or not Kanye stays true to his word and actually keeps the The Life of Pablo as a Tidal exclusive remains to be seen. Judging by his tweets recently, not even Kanye knows what’s going on inside of Kanye’s head anymore. But for now, you’ll have to sign up for Tidal to stream the album…or explore the internet for other options…
