Prince Vega – The countdown is on for the thriving black owned tech business that has captured the eyes of some of the most powerful tech companies in the world. Although most conscious people already see Jay-Z as a sell out, many hardcore fans are becoming worried that all the hype behind TIDAL was just for Jay-Z to flip it to make profit rather than revolutionizing the tech game with a music streaming company that pays the highest royalty percentage to record labels for individual artist with 75% of their subscription fees.

Many people are unaware that Samsung has a long happy relationship with Jay-Z. According to the New York Post, Samsung ponied up some $28 million to sponsor Rihanna’s latest album and tour.

Do you think Jay-Z should sell TIDAL or keep it?
