Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame looks like he’s ready for the barbershop debate of a lifetime. The hip-hop star has social media buzzing after declaring Kanye West the greatest rapper alive.

This past weekend, Waka went to Instagram to declare Ye’s greatness.

Early Monday (July 3), Kanye linked up with Atlanta rap veteran 2 Chainz.

Recent reports claim Kanye has backed out of releasing music exclusively on streaming giants.

Sources with knowledge of the conflict between Kanye and Tidal tell us Kanye does not want to enter into any more exclusive album releases or contracts with streaming services to host any upcoming projects of his, because he wants to avoid what happened on Tidal … too limited access for far too long. We’re told when Kanye does drop new material, he plans to make it available on as many music platforms as possible … so more people can listen as soon as it’s released. (TMZ)

Yesterday, reports surfaced about Kanye parting ways with JAY-Z‘s streaming giant TIDAL.

We’re told Kanye’s beef with Tidal is twofold — his Saint Pablo album resulted in 1 1/2 million new subscribers to Tidal, for which he was supposed to get a bonus but the company hasn’t paid. Kanye also says Tidal reneged on reimbursing him for music videos. Our sources say Tidal’s position is that Kanye didn’t deliver the videos required by the contract. Kanye’s response … I’ll deliver the videos when you pay me what I’m owed. (TMZ)
