No último sábado, durante show em Nova York, Jay Z não poupou criticas ao gigantes da indústria do streaming.
O rapper e criador do concorrente Tidal fez um freestyle onde deixou bem claro a sua ”insatisfação” com o Spotify, Google, Apple, entre outros.
Sobrou até para o falecido Steve Jobs. Assista logo abaixo.
I’m never gonna go with the flow
I’m never gonna let nobody take over our music
I see sh-t you may not see
Everybody in here gets it today
The people outside will get it tomorrow
This TIDAL thing is all about the music
We gonna preserve the music
We ain’t gonna let anybody take our music
We ain’t gonna let nobody offer our music up
Do what the f–k they want to do
I don’t take no checks I take my respect
Pharrell even told me go with the safest bet
Jimmy Iovine offered a safety net
Google dangled around a crazy check
I feel like YouTube was the biggest culprit
Them n**gas pay you a tenth of what you supposed to get
You know n**gas died for equal pay, right?
You know when I work I ain’t your slave, right?
+Distribute Your Music While Keeping 100% Of Your Royalties With No Annual Fees (sponsored)
You know I’m ain’t shucking and jivin’ and high five-in’
You know this ain’t back in the days, right?
Well I can’t tell how the way they killed Freddy Gray, right?
Shot down Mike Brown how they did Trey, right?
Let ‘em continue choking n**gas
We gonna turn style I ain’t ya token n**ga
You know I came in this game independent, right?
TIDAL, my own label, same difference
Oh n**gas is skeptical when it’s they own shit
You bought nine iPhones and Steve Jobs is rich
Phil Knight is worth trillions, you still bought those kicks
Spotify’s nine billion, they ain’t say shit
Lucy you got some splaynin’ to do!
The only one they hatin’ on look the same as you
That’s cool I know they tryin’ to bamboozle you
Spendin’ millions on media tryin’ to confuse you
I had to talk to myself, ‘Hov you used to it’
It’s politics as usual
You know how we do!
