Tidal’s release and subsequent reviews were, well, rough. So rough that the streaming service’s owner may’ve forgotten all about it.
In the midst of a trial in which Jay Z and Timbaland are accused of not clearing Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdi’s sample used in “Big Pimpin,’” Hova was asked what he does for a living… And left out music streaming service owner.
"I make music, I'm a rapper, I’ve got a clothing line, I run a label, a media label called Roc Nation, with a sports agency, music publishing and management. Restaurants and nightclubs,” he listed off, according to The Huffington Post. “I think that about covers it."
Jay’s lawyer, who seems to be more invested in Tidal than Mr. Carter is at this point, then followed up and asked whether he also owned a streaming service.
“Yeah, yeah. Forgot about that.”
It’s OK, Jay. We understand.
