Hits Daily Double: “Kanye West Is Distancing Himself From TIDAL…To Team Up With Apple”

Published: Saturday 23rd May 2015 by David

HITS Daily Double isn’t backing down.

Yes, after seeing their report that Kanye West was leaving Roc Nation rubbished by the sources close to the table, today has seen them hit back with a new report.

Its claim?

Kanye West is leaving the label/management company…to team up with one of Jay Z‘s rivals.

They report:

Kanye West is making changes, distancing himself from Tidal, firing Roc Nation and managing himself, with an unofficial assist from the JennerKardashian clan. As for Kanye’s long-delayed album, there’s some chatter that the release will be connected to Apple Music’s launch.

West is yet to confirm or deny the news himself but is undoubtedly aware that his alleged departure from Roc will create quite the mess for the label as he had been enlisted to serve as the executive-producer for Rihanna’s brand new LP.

Your thoughts?

    Wish Nicki would do the same. Tidal is just not it.

      Tidal is not the reason any of these artists are not selling… it’s their lack of connection with what listeners want to hear.I love Nicki Minaj but her best years was when she was on mixtapes. Home girl has not created anything impactful. kanye’s fame was on the demise long before Tidal. Yeesus was catastrophic. His relationship with Kim turned everyone off and his bitchy attitude in public didnt help. His music, as of late, is just awful. It lacks depeth and most importantly, inspiration. He’s with a bland, vain woman who doesn’t even understand him. Jay and Bey has remained to stay relevant through it all and that’s because they take time to give the listeners what they want. Sure, the Tidal launch party was pretentious but it has good intentions and I’m sure in the long run it will become a successful app. Tidal is the result of the current climate of the music industry. Record sales are down… Streams are out the roof. You have to move with the times and i think what makes people upset is that a black man was smart enough to do it.

        Thank you!!! I support Tidal. I support black businesses. I

      • Faf May 23, 2015

        Tidal isn’t a black business it’s a money business

        Black business is by the people FOR the people not by a braggart to give him more to brag about

      • Roy May 23, 2015

        Get the f*** out of here with that black s***

      • edna May 24, 2015

        You all are incredibly stupid. We uphold rappers to a standard that requires them to speak from experiences in their life. If they’re caught lying about it, that becomes a strike against them and suddenly they’re look at as fraudulent. (Officer) Rick Ross was one of the first rappers I know who was able to remain relevant after falsifying his “rap sheet.” Even with a #1 hit, Iggy doesn’t get no break for her fake accent. My thing is, when Jay first came out, he rapped about his life… dealings drugs, blowing off money, (excuse my language) f-ing ho3s. That was his world then. Him rapping about being succesful and making investments is his life now. Which is why he “brags” about it in his music. I don’t get it. People rocked with him when he was out “Big Pimpin” but now he’s doing too much because he’s rapping about profits he acquired that didn’t take the use of drug dealing.

    This is SO smart, because the way Tidal is set up right now<<<<but it honestly won't matter if he doesn't get the public to like him again, I don't care how good this next album will be, if it doesn't sell, than distancing yourself won't matter.

    Rihanna needs to do the same, or else she'll end up like some other unmentionable faves ????

    • rosy May 23, 2015

      RIh please run fro m tidal please rih I don’t blame kanye why should he be loyal to tidal Jay did not show up to their wedding and bey mocked kim that day she aint Showed up rih run before it too late

  3. Keri Qween May 23, 2015

    And if the others are smart they will distance themselves too from this flop known as Tidal

  4. Rima May 23, 2015

    Im just glad Gaga isn’t apart of that flop.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 23, 2015

      But she is already a flop tho!!!!!!!!!!!! Does #ARTSHIT sound familiar???

  5. Rima May 23, 2015

    Tidal is killing careers out in these streets lol

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) May 23, 2015

      But GAGGA did not put her music there, and it still flopped like a mothafucker..LOL

      • Rima May 23, 2015

        Is that why ARTPOP sold more than 2 million WW? AP had more hits than Beyonce and R8. Who is the real flop here? Your fav has reduced herself to Nicki minaj level lmao that’s embarrassing.

      • red wine May 23, 2015

        oooh yall are going in

  6. justme May 23, 2015

    Only reason why everyone think it is a flop because everyone is about numbers. TIDAL didn’t tell you how many ppl are watching videos and they have a chart but that doesn’t matter so you guys are like flop. Kanye is good but no one is checking for him. His last album struggled to make gold

  7. Sidney Price May 23, 2015

    Lmao Tidal subscriptions went up by $5

  8. #TeamTinashe Stan “The Future Is Mine” May 23, 2015

    But didn’t he sign the illuminati contract…. ok we know he signed one long time ago but this illuminati contract?

  9. Slay_Hive May 23, 2015

    Kanye is so shady for this but kudos to him. He don’t owe Jay s***!

    • RihNavy May 23, 2015

      It does look kinda shady though sis! Because history tells us that they view each other like brothers, so I wonder how Jay is taking this? Anyway, not certain stans logging into their Nokia flip phones to try and come for Beyoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter, like she doesn’t own all of their faves and hasn’t s****ed on all their careers with just ONE album. Smh, the self-drag remains real.

  10. Goldie May 23, 2015

    Black folks don’t know how to do business. They’re not organized. Don’t do business with black folks!

  11. RealNegro May 23, 2015

    Kanye has lost inspiration and it shows in his latest single. Same old recycled bull crap.

  12. Royalkev May 23, 2015

    Still not sure if I buy any of this, but at the same time I wouldn’t be mad at ‘Ye for stepping out if he felt it’s best for his career. Business is business!

  13. Keri Qween May 23, 2015

    You f*** always holding my comments

    • Career Ender May 23, 2015

    Never make a deal with drug dealers and performing arts drop outs. The Camels are trash, especially that retarded bleached hyena demon.

  15. Arie May 23, 2015

    They need to set him free.

  16. RL8 May 23, 2015

    Wow Kanye is shady as a muths fucka isn’t Jay his best friend? Yet he’s the first to jump ship wow.

  17. Barb-wire May 23, 2015

    Kanye you is messy that’s all, so if he quits roc then what happens to RFlop? Kiii this era will be fun.

  18. Barb-wire May 23, 2015

    And death at him for abandoning roc to get help from the Kartrashians.

  19. Career Ender May 23, 2015

    Since Kanye and Kim happened, there have been less Jigga-Ye-Yonce
    sad if their friendship is dying

  20. Stephy. May 23, 2015

  21. Career Ender May 23, 2015

    mother monsta can’t recover from this one

  22. Centurion May 23, 2015

  23. Career Ender May 23, 2015

    get to work ugly beast!

  24. Lake Erie May 23, 2015

    I hope he do leave. I hope Rihanna go too.

  25. B2B May 23, 2015

    I don’t believe this, but if true, I believe it’s a publicity stunt to make Tidal bigger. Business is business and it’s strictly financial.

    • OMG Logic!!! May 23, 2015

      Tidal bigger? Girl, bye. The only bigger thing Tidal will become is a flop.

  26. Bitchpleaseeeeeeeee! May 23, 2015

    Did you guys caught the Rihanna shade Beyonce threw on her Facebook page??? Sam did you missed that??? Lmfao

  27. milano May 23, 2015

    What if this was plan all along. Kill the competition is it me or did bet once become beasties with nicki right before it seems like nickis demise.ijs if it’s too good to be true it’s too good to be true. I guess they didn’t learn from all the snake s*** s*** Jay and bey did and still do in the industry. Don’t bother with a hateful reply I’m a fan of Jay and bey

  28. Jake May 23, 2015

    Why you all refuse to support that black man that came from nothing? Jay Z is hella smart , Tidal is going to be huge , if he drops the price to 3-5$ a month he will Ether the competition. I’m all for Tidal because they bringed something spotify didn’t . As black artist I get where Bey , Nicki , Rih , J Cole… Are tired of giving huge pourcentage to those white people that be criticizing them in private ( see sony leaked emails , how the talked about Angie Jolie ( who is white , talented , and compassionate ) ) imagine how they would talk about blacks ! I say kudos to Jay Z and other artist for takkng matters in their own hands and stopped being used like monkeys in cages . I support Tidal , I just can’t afford it , that’s the problem of millions of people, they need to lower prices to 5 and 10$ at least! Or get them Taylor Swift , One Direction , Justin Bieber , Fifth Harmony , Nick Jonas on it . Cause them fans be just taking their parents card for everything , Uber , Apple apps , Kim K game … Not having white teenagers as original members was a mistake .

  29. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 24, 2015
