Jay Z Lowkey Is Taking Back What’s His

His 2001 masterpiece has been pulled from rival streaming sites.

Published March 15, 2016

Jay Z’s streaming service, Tidal, has been making all sorts of headlines lately.

From reportedly doubling its users since Kanye West dropped The Life of Pablo to partnering with T.I. to rumors the company was going to be sold to Samsung, it’s been an interesting ride for the underdog streaming service in 2016.

Most recently comes the not-so-surprising news that Hov has removed his 2001 classic LP, The Blueprint, from other competitive sites, such as Spotify and Apple Music. It is also no longer available on iTunes

While several of Jay’s other albums are still available outside of Tidal, we can all safely assume he’s working on changing that, making these strategic moves in silence.
