Jay Z has hit back at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren on his new track with Pusha T titled ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’.

He and Timbaland are both being sued by the estate of Egyptian singer Baligh Hamdi, who made the 1957 hit song ‘Khosara Khosara’, the melodic flute flourish of which is accused of being unlawfully used as the catchy hook from ‘Big Pimpin’.

The rivalry between the two streaming services might have just become more intense.
Tidal users who were tuning in to the livestream of Lil Wayne’s gig at his Lil Weezyana Festival in New Orleans were left missing out when Drake stopped by to deliver a brief three-song cameo. When Drake hit the stage the livestream stopped, reportedly due to the fact that the Canadian rapper is Apple Music’s main man, while Wayne is a co-owner of Jay-Z’s Tidal.
Drake’s performance with Lil Wayne was cut from Tidal’s livestream.
The Tidal twitter account told users, ”Apple is interfering with artistry and will not allow this artist to stream. Sorry for Big Brother’s inconvenience” as Drake took the stage, adding ”We'll be back after the performance.”
He'll accept the prestigious trophy at Sunday night's televised ceremony.
According to a statement from MTV, ‘Ye is being honoured with the award on account of his “career-spanning groundbreaking videos, legendary VMA performances and continued impact on music, art, fashion and culture.”

The study found there had been three music revolutions since the 1950s.
A study by the University of London and Imperial College has concluded that the emergence of hip hop has had the biggest impact on the charts of any genre since the 1950s. The study also found that the importance of The Beatles may have been overstated, suggesting that the fab five did not spark a musical revolution.
The Beatles may not have been that revolutionary
The study found there were three musical revolutions on the charts, the first being in 1964 with the rise of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles. The second was in the mid 80s with the use of synthesisers and drum machines, while the third came in 1991 when rap and hip-hop infiltrated the mainstream charts.

‘Tidal X: Jay Z B-Sides’ will hit on May 13th.
If you ask most people how they think Jay-Z’s Tidal service is doing, the response will probably be something along the lines of 'not great'.

The rap megastar at the centre of the Tidal streaming re-launch has removed his debut album from Spotify.

Rihanna backed Jay Z and her LGBT fans in Indiana.

The 'Happy' star spoke to GQ Style magazine about his recent success.
With pretty much the whole world at his feet having had the biggest selling single of the last few years, you could perhaps excuse Pharrell Williams for being immodest. But in a new interview he was very humble when comparing himself to one of his musical idols Jay-Z.
Speaking with Germany’s GQ Style magazine, the 41 year old said he would “sound braggy” if he were to rap like Jay-Z and use the same lyrics that he does. He believes that all artists should find their own style and that imitating someone else is unlikely to pay off.
