“You know when I work I ain’t ya slave, right / You know I ain’t shucking and jiving, and hi-fiving / You know this ain’t back in the days, right?” Jay rapped. “Well, I can’t tell by the way they killed Freddie Gray, right? / Shot down Mike Brown, how they did Tray, right?”

    Loser

    really classy to promote your failing music service by namedropping tragedies like they relate to Tidal’s flop.

  • duh!

    Idk why people still buy music….if I’m in my car listening to the radio n a song I like comes on…I’m not going to Spotify or tidal to purchase the song…I’ll go on YouTube n listen to it for FREE

    Jay-Z is so overrated, never understood why so many people like his music. I think hes a terrible lyricist. He’s said that he doesn’t actually write down his lyrics, I think maybe he should start. Some people can freestyle and some people can’t…

    He’s desperate! Just shows that he knows Tidal is a huge flop! Loser!

    I already use Youtube. Now I’ll make sure to use Spotify too. The entitled, greedy pig has nothing to worry about on my part though. I’ll be sure to never listen to anything of his or his wife’s. The same goes for the other entitled, greedy pig Kanye West. I prefer listening to people that actually sound good.

    These comments are sad as hell. But he’s still making money though!
