Music mogul Jay Z‘s new Tidal streaming service is reportedly going to look out for its loyal subscribers by giving them first dibs on tickets for the upcoming annual Made in America Philadelphia festival.
While details are scarce, reports claim subscribers will have the chance to get tickets ahead of non-Tidal heads.

Last weekend, Jay treated Tidal-only subscribers to a free concert where he reunited with ex-Roc-A-Fella Records artist Beanie Sigel.

While running through classic Roc-A-Fella records, it was only fitting that Jigga brought out his familia including Memphis Bleek, Young Gunz, Freeway, and Beanie Sigel. (VIBE)
Despite not being big on the music streaming game, Roc Nation’s Memphis Bleek recently said he had to support his longtime mentor’s new service.
“I really don’t know too much about the Internet world. I’m brand new to it myself. I don’t have Pandora and I don’t have Spotify, but you know that I’ve got Tidal because I’m riding for my crew. I think, because Jay Z’s behind it, the expectations are high. When you’re associated with greatness, people expect everything that you do to happen overnight. Sometimes greatness takes time, even when you’re Jay Z.” (Complex)
Young Hov resorted to his Twitter page last month to assure Tidal subscribers of the service’s promising future.
