Snoop Dogg pirated JAY-Z’s ‘4:44’ since he doesn’t have Tidal

Even Snoop Dogg doesn’t have Tidal — but that didn’t stop him from falling his teeth into JAY-Z’s new album.

The rapper admits he listened to a bootlegged duplicate of “4:44” after the critically acclaimed record expelled exclusively on Tidal — a streaming service that Snoop, like many other JAY-Z fans, does not have a subscription to.

“I wish to fire a scream out to JAY-Z. Just forsaken another motherf–king prohibited album, ‘4:44,'” Snoop began in a profanity-laced Instagram video. “But you know what? we don’t got Tidal, so (a friend) had to illicit it to me. I’m on iTunes and s–t since we don’t know that — y’all gotta explain that to me.”

“I went to iTunes looking for his manuscript and we couldn’t find it,” the “Young, Wild Free” rapper, 45, continued. “But my homie sent it to me, you know me?”

JAY-Z’s $20M present to Kanye was actually a customary business understanding


JAY-Z’s manuscript forsaken on Jun 30 and stays accessible only to Tidal subscribers. JAY-Z, who owns Tidal, has had several major albums premiere exclusively on the streaming service in new years, including his wife Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and Kanye West’s “The Life of Pablo,” both in 2016.

Tidal offers a free 30-day trial, but some fans had already used theirs before JAY-Z’s first manuscript in 4 years came out last Friday. Naturally, those reluctant to compensate for the website’s $9.99 per month subscription price have been left incompetent to listen to “4:44” until it becomes accessible elsewhere.

Despite the Tidal confusion, Snoop had zero but good things to contend about the manuscript itself.
