West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle is letting the cat out of the bat. The hip-hop artist has come forward to speak out on how much everyone’s favorite streaming giants shorten musicians’ pockets.
Nipsey went to Twitter last night (January 15) to suggest TIDAL ultimately helps artists earn a living compared to its competition like Apple Music and Spotify.
1 Million Streams on YouTube = $690
1 Million Streams on Spotify = $4,370
1 Million Streams on Apple Music = $7,350
1 Million Streams on @Tidal = $12,500
1 Million Streams on Amazon Music = $4,020
Don’t shoot the messenger.

Earlier this month, New York rapper Joey Bada$$ announced he had a new show coming to TIDAL.
I have a podcast called “47 Minutes” coming to @TIDAL real soon. RT if you’ll tune in to hear me talk about shit from hip hop, politics, spirituality and whatever the fuck else I want.

In December, Atlanta rapper T.I. gave fans a big push to join the TIDAL movement.
Back in 2015, Young Hov and other top-tier entertainers pushed TIDAL as a service to help fellow musicians.
Jay Z and other top names in music – including Madonna, Daft Punk and Coldplay’s Chris Martin – in March 2015 unveiled Tidal, promising to give artists greater control in the fast-growing industry of streaming, which allows unlimited, on-demand listening. The streaming service has sought to win customers by providing original content and early releases from Tidal’s superstar artists including Jay Z, Beyonce, and rapper Kanye West. (Daily Mail UK)
