Additionally, TMZ's report notes that Kanye hasn't been reimbursed for the release of music videos despite TIDAL claiming Kanye didn't hold up his end of the bargain and deliver the agreed number of videos.

Many music enthusiasts mistakenly interpreted Kanye West's beef with Tidal as his furious response to Jay-Z's latest album where he disses Yeezy.

Sources also allege West was supposed to get a bonus after his 2016 album, "The Life of Pablo", brought 1.5 million new subscribers to the service, but he hasn't been paid for that or received reimbursement for music videos.

According to TMZ, West chose to leave the music streaming service after being owed $3.8 million.

At 47-years-old, JAY-Z released 4:44, an album already being trumpeted as one of his best, and certainly a contender for 2017's most discussed. But Tidal is also in the news because fellow rapper Kanye West is reportedly leaving Tidal.

Kanye West and JAY-Z are longtime business partners, collaborators, and friends.

Jay-Z is now a major shareholder in the company, along with Sprint, which purchased 33 percent of Tidal in January 2017.

Sources tell the gossip site that Kanye's lawyer sent a letter to the streaming subscription service a month ago and in the two weeks that followed, both Ye's camp and Tidal reps attempted to "resolve the conflict but failed".

In the track, Kill Jay Z, Beyoncé's husband appears to throw shade at Kanye, referencing North West's father's first album, College Dropout, and repeatedly slipping in, "Ye", which is Kanye's nickname. He added, "Jay-Z - call me, bruh. Please don't send them at my head".

"You walking around like you invincible/ You dropped out of school, you lost your principles/ I know people back stabbed you, I felt bad too/ But this "f**k everybody" attitude ain't natural", JAY-Z raps.

Some of the lyrics include: "You gave him 20 million without blinkin'..."
