Is Kanye West eating his words? West quietly deleted a series of tweets praising the company started by his friend and mentor Jay Z. Tidal is a music streaming website designed to put even more money into the big names of music. Users can stream unlimited music at a hefty price, and the public is generally not too happy about this. “Together we can turn the tide and make music history. Start by turning your profile picture blue. #TIDALforALL” said a deleted tweet. Tidal has not been holding up well to the general public, with downloads now dropping below the top 700 most downloaded apps in iTunes. In response to the deleted tweets, and to show he is still on his big brother’s (and probably more importantly, Beyonce’s) good side, he posted a new tweet: “The love of music is louder than words” with a link to the website.
A court date is set for Bobby Shmurda and 12 other members of the GS9 , who were arrested over 4 months ago and charged with over 100 crimes, including drug possession. The crew has been in Riker’s prison for the time being, with bail set at 2 million dollars apiece, and will stand trial in June 25th. “We know what we’re up against”, says Kenneth Montgomery, a lawyer for Schmurda. “We’re up against the rule of the law.”
