Jay Z takes on Spotify, YouTube, deaths of Freddie Gray, Mike Brown & Trayvon in #TIDALXJAYZ freestyle Tidal Concert. Back in the day, Jay Z went after other emcees in verse. Now that he’s a mogul, he goes after multi-billion dollar corporations. During his TIDAL ‘B-Side” concert tonight, HOV defended his fledgling streaming service by going in on YouTube and Spotify.
“YouTube is the biggest culprit,” he said in a freestyle, much to the crowd’s delight. “You know niggas die for equal pay, right. You know when I work I ain’t your slave, right?”
