Kanye want you to get Watch The Throne 2 but seems it will never happen unless some powerful folks in the music business work out their differences. Ye was performing on his “Saint Pablo Tour” in Seattle on Wednesday night when he went into one of his usual rants about working with Jay Z on Throne followup.
“There will never be a Watch The Throne 2,” the G.O.O.D. Music emcee said. “I wasn’t on the song because of Hov. Cause of some TIDAL-Apple bulls**t. This sh*t be getting me tight every time I perform this motherfu**er. Y’all didn’t get what y’all was supposed to get with me and Drake on this song [Pop Style] because of some TIDAL/Apple bulls**t.”

The song that Kanye West is talking about is the album version of Drake‘s “Pop Style.” You can recalled that Jay Z and Kanye West (The Throne) were on the original version of the song but then when the album came out none of them was on it. Drake got a lot of heat from some of his fans for that but turns out that it wasn’t his fault.
Kanye West made it clear last night that the TIDAL and Apple Music rivalry or so called beef is the reason behind a lot of recording issues among rappers who are aligned to both companies. Drake, as well as, a few other artists have exclusive deals with Apple Music. But then there are around a dozen other artists that are shareholders in TIDAL Music including Kanye West himself and Jay Z who is the face of the company.
This is not the first time that Kanye West is ranting about TIDAL and Apple getting in the way of getting music to his fans. Over the summer he went on a Twitter rant that Apple should just buy TIDAL.
“Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve,” Ye tweeted.
Kanye West also shared some other issues he had with Jay Z and him not being on speaking terms but he got a call from Hov recently when his wife Kim Kardashian got robbed. “Our kids ain’t never even played together,” Ye said. “You wanna know how I’m feeling? Come by the house. Bring the kids by the house like we brothers. Let’s sit down.”
