West's camp apparently sent a letter to Tidal last month, claiming that the streaming service owed Kanye money.

In addition, it says West believes he hasn't been reimbursed for the release of music videos. But Tidal is also in the news because fellow rapper Kanye West is reportedly leaving Tidal.

Lawyers on both sides have tried to reach an agreement over the last few weeks, but to no avail.

TMZ reports that Tidal's lawyers responded to West's legal threats by maintaining they have an exclusive contract with the rapper and will sue him if he should attempt to go to another music streaming service.

Kanye West has cut ties with the streaming service Tidal over a $20 million dispute with Jay-Z, TMZ reports. When it did appear on other services in late March, a consumer filed a lawsuit alleging deceptive marketing for the goal of "fraudulently inducing customers to subscribe to Tidal". On the other hand Tidal is saying that Kanye didn't put out the work that was described per the contract. TMZ reports that Tidal has threatened to sue West who is said to have been unhappy with the company for some time because he was owed $3 million. Thus, it's entirely possible JAY-Z is simply doling out some tough brotherly love to his one-time protege.

The rift between the pair reportedly started a year ago when Jay-Z failed to contact West following his wife Kim Kardashian's robbery at gunpoint in Paris. He added, "Jay-Z - call me, bruh".

Kim and Kayne attended Blue Ivy's birthday this year, and they sent their congratulations when Beyonce gave birth to the twins. "Just call me. Talk to me like a man". The music platform will reportedly sue Jay-Z for breach of contract if the United States rapper jumps ship to another streaming platform.

"You dropped outta school, you lost your principles / You gave him 20 million without thinking/ He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f**k was he thinking?" the verse goes.
