Kanye West might be launching a rival to Jay-Z’s Tidal and Spotify

Is Kanye West going to start his own streaming service? Is this all just to spite Jay-Z after their spat?

Kanye West can’t get into the news for something that isn’t controversial it seems. New documents show that Kanye’s reps have filed trademarks for something called “Yeezy Sound” suggesting he might be starting a music streaming service – could this relate to his feud with old partner Jay-Z?

The documents relating to “Yeezy Sound” suggest that the copyright will include uses for: “Streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content.” So yeah it’s going to be a streaming service of some sort, and Kanye West is a musician so… yeah. However, beyond this possible venture people seem more concerned for what this means between Kanye and old buddy Jay-Z.

It might seem presumptuous but not every artist starts a music streaming service, especially artists who’s best friend and business partner already has one that you supported closely. Especially when their friend supposedly also owes them £3.5 million for using their music on their friend’s service.

That’s what is supposedly going on between the Watch the Throne duo, after Kanye released his album ‘The Life of Pablo’ on Tidal under exclusive terms. Kanye now claims that Jay-Z owes Kanye $3.5 million in unpaid advances and bonuses for his album.

So no-one really knows whats going on except that Kanye West might be starting a streaming service in which case, good luck with that.
