Well, the late Prince estate want no parts of Jay Z’s deal where he offered to snatch up any of the late singer’s music catalog.
The estate fired off a letter to Jay’s team last month, saying it had no interest in signing a deal for “Roc Nation to exploit any of the intellectual property assets of the Estate.” Per TMZ
Now they’re calling out TIDAL for making 15 Prince albums available for streaming a couple months after his death. Those releases were unauthorized according to the estate. The estate does acknowledge Prince made a deal with Jay for the 2015 release of his final album, “HitNRun Phase One” — but also says it hasn’t found proof of a $750k payment to close that deal.
Is Jay going broke ? What is going on ? Sounds like a mess on both sides.
