Jay-Z defends Tidal, while ripping Apple, Google, Spotify in freestyle

Jay-Z promotes Tidal while throwing jabs at the competition

During a concert featuring rare songs, Jay-Z also took the time to rip into Tidal competitors, with jabs thrown at Apple, Spotify and Google. Tidal, which features a $20 per month subscription that is double the cost of most of its rivals, has drawn extreme criticism - and music fans aren't ready to spend the extra money.




Even though Jay-Z says Tidal is "just fine" right now, he took the time to speak his mind about a few competitors:


"You bought nine iPhones and Steve Jobs is rich...

Phil Knight is worth millions, you still bought them kicks

Spotify is nine million, they ain't s**t"


"Jimmy Iovine offered a safety net

Google dangle 'round a crazy check

I feel like YouTube is the biggest culprit
