Kanye West calls for an end to Apple and Tidal rivalry
Rapper Kanye West has slammed bosses at Apple Music for allegedly feuding with Jay Z's streaming service Tidal.
The outspoken Famous hitmaker vented his thoughts about the music industry giants on Twitter Saturday (30Jul16), choosing to reprimand Apple Music executives for their business conduct.
"This Tidal Apple beef is f**king up the music game," he lamented in a tweet.
Decision-makers at the pioneering computer company are reportedly interested in acquiring Jay Z's Tidal, with the Wall Street Journal having reported last month (Jun16) bosses at both corporations have entered sales talks.
But Kanye has no patience for the unfolding business transaction, with the hip hop star urging all parties to seal a deal on the acquisition as soon as possible.
Taking aim at Apple CEO Tim Cook, and other business hotshots, West tweeted: "I need Tim Cook Jay Z Dez Jimmy Larry me and Drake Scooter (sic) on the phone or in a room this week!!!"
Kanye further emphasised his point by stressing an acquisition deal between Tidal and Apple Music would benefit current and future generations exponentially if it came into fruition quickly.
"F**k all this dick swinging contest," he wrote. "We all gon (sic) be dead in 100 Years. Let the kids have the music."
Kanye concluded his request by demanding Apple executives fork over the cash to Jay Z immediately.
"Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve," he tweeted, referring to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Kanye's business proposal takes place just one day after he surprised fans by releasing the music video to his new track Wolves.
