JAY-Z Reportedly In Talks To Buy Harvey Weinstein's Interest In The Weinstein Company {F}

In new docu series, Jay Z remembers Kalief Browder as ‘prophet’ {VIDEO} {F}

JAY-Z is reportedly looking to add another significant piece to his business portfolio.

TMZ reports that the 47-year old Roc Nation CEO, along with a famous producer and billionaire are in talks to buy Harvey Weinstein's 23% stake in The Weinstein Company

Jay already has an ongoing working relationship with TWC and wants to expand it.

Harvey was a producer on the documentary, "The Kalief Browder Story." TWC is also working with Jay on a six-part docu-series on Trayvon Martin, as part of a first-look deal he signed with the studio last September.

The opportunity for Jay to make the acquisition came about after Harvey was fired by TWC's board of representatives earlier this month, amid allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Jay Z To Become The 1st Rapper Inducted Into The Songwriters Hall Of Fame & Set 2 Launch His Own Venture-Capital Firm

In new docu series, Jay Z remembers Kalief Browder as prophet entertainment 1x1.trans

In his executive-produced documentary on Kalief Browder, Jay Z recalled his encounter with the 22-year-old who, at 16, spent three years in prison without a conviction.

“Kalief moved so many people. I just felt compelled to meet with him,” the hip-hop mogul said of his decision to reach out to Browder after his story made national headlines.

“I believe our prophets come in many shapes or forms. Sometimes our prophets come in the form of young undeveloped energy that will teach all us grownups how to love better and have more compassion.

“Kalief Browder was a prophet.”

Jay Z appears alongside multiple subjects in TIME’s six-part docu series The Kalief Browder Story, which premiered Wednesday night. The project details Browder’s prison tale, which begins in 2010 when the then teen was arrested while walking home and charged with second degree robbery, after being accused of stealing a backpack.
Kalief, who refused to take a plea deal for a crime he said he did not commit, was unable to post his $3,000 bail and subsequently spent the next three years at New York City’s notoriously violent and gang-infested Rikers Island jail. While behind bars, Kalief allegedly endured beatings by prison guards and other inmates, and was held in solitary confinement for most of his holding.
Browder’s case was largely referenced by former President Barack Obama in an op-ed announcing his banning of solitary confinement for juveniles in federal prisons.
Though his case was eventually dismissed in 2013, Browder’s mental condition began to deteriorate and he later committed suicide by hanging himself in 2015.

Prince Estate Sues Jay Z’s TIDAL and Roc Nation For Copyright

In March of 2015, Jay Z acquired Tidal’s Oslo-based parent companyAspiro, for $56 million. Tidal quickly inked many A-list artists to deals for it's music streaming service.

Usher, Beyonce, Kanye West, Chris Martin, deadmau5, Jason Aldean, J. Cole, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Daft Punk all release new music exclusively through Tidal.

Right out of the gate the company joined a crowded field that includedSpotify, Google Play, Amazon Prime and Pandora. The competition for customers became even more fierce when Apple Music was launched in June of 2015.

In September of 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported that Aspiro lost over $28 million in 2015 alone.

Rumors have circulated that Jay wants to sell the company. Apple and Samsung have been mentioned as possible suitors, but nothing has come to fruition.

Apple executive, Jimmy Iovine, told Buzzfeed that the rumors regarding his company were false.

“We’re really running our own race,” he said. “We’re not looking to acquire any streaming services.”

Today, Business Insider reports via Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv, that Tidal is being accused of inflating it's user numbers.

The report alleges that Jay's September 2015 tweet that his company had reach one million subscribers was greatly exaggerated.

Internal reports indicate Tidal had 830,000 subscribers at the time. Dagens Næringsliv claims that even that number was inflated, pointing out that payments made to record labels put Tidal's subscribers closer to 350,000.

In a May 29, 2016 press release Tidal claimed it had "amassed three million members across 46 countries worldwide." Dagens Næringsliv disputes those numbers, citing internal reports that showed only 1.2 million subscribers. Payments to record labels indicated that it had850,000 subscribers at the time.

Prince Estate Rejects Jay Z $40 Million Deal For Unrelease Music Catalog

Prince Estate fired off a lawsuit against Jay Z‘s companies TIDAL and Roc Nation for copyright infringement claiming that the music streaming service is illegally streaming just about every single hit song from the late pop icon.

Prince’s label NPG Records claimed in their lawsuit that ROc Nation overstepped its bounds when the company decided to go beyond an agreement signed with Prince before his death and start streaming his music on TIDAL, TMZ reported.


Prior to his death back in April, Prince signed a deal with Roc Nation to stream his last album “Hit N Run: Phase 1” on TIDAL. But according to legal docs from his estate, that was as far as that deal goes. NPG is now claiming that TIDAL went ahead and started streaming nearly all of the singer’s catalog without the necessary permission.


NPG is now suing Roc Nation and TIDAL for copyright infringement. In a three-page list of songs the company named huge hits from Prince including “Little Red Corvette,” “Purple Rain,” “Pop Life,” “1999,” “I Wanna Be Your Lover” just to name a few.

Jay Z's Tidal Music Streaming Service Lost $28 Million In 2015 

Prince Estate told Jay Z no deal for his unreleased music catalog and by the way we will also reviewed his TIDAL deal.
Last month, Jay Z made a $40 million offer to Prince’s estate for his massive catalog of unreleased music but the management of his estate declined the offer saying that they want nothing to do with such a deal.


After getting news of the deal, the estate fired off a letter to Jay Z and company last month telling them that there is zero interest in signing a deal for “Roc Nation to exploit any of the intellectual property assets of the Estate,” TMZ reported.


The estate isn’t stopping there because before his death, Prince signed a deal with TIDAL to stream his last album “HitNRun Phase One.” But now his estate is claiming that since his death TIDAL has been streaming 15 of the pop icon’s albums. With that said, they are expecting a big check or a lawsuit could be coming TIDAL’s way.


Prince died on April 21, 2016 at his home at Paisley Park. His autopsy report suggest that he died from an overdose on Opioid. He battle an addiction to Opioid for years and was trying to get help moments before his death.

Apple To Acquire Struggling TIDAL Music From Jay Z

Tidal is still trying to find it's footing in the ultra-competitive music streaming business.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Jay Z's firm Aspiro AB, the Swedish holding company for Tidal, booked a net loss of 239.5 million Swedish crowns ($28.23 million) in 2015.

The list of artists on the company's roster is impressive.

Kanye West, T.I., Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Beyonce, Jay Z, Usher, Madonna, Alicia Keys, Prince, J. Cole, Chris Martin, Calvin Harris, Prince, Daft Punk, Jack White, Arcade Fire, Jason Aldean and deadmau5 all release exclusive content through Tidal.

However, the competition from rivals Apple Music and Spotify is proving to be very stiff.

Couple that with the ease in which fans can get music for free and you can start to see what Tidal is up against.

According to the Wall Street Journal, "A person familiar with the matter said the financial statement doesn’t paint a complete picture of the situation at Tidal because it doesn’t reflect all U.S. revenue and financing."

Jay Z bought Aspiro in January of 2015 for $56 million.

Jay Z Sues Tidal's Previous Owners For 15Million. Claims They Exaggerated Streaming Subscriber Numbers

Apple is looking to bolster its music streaming service by buying TIDAL Music. 

Multiple reports surfaced on Thursday claiming that Apple is in talks with the owners of TIDAL music. The music streaming service is mostly owned by artists including Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Kanye West and more.

The Wall Street Journey claimed that the talks are still in the early stages but it would make perfect sense for Apple to acquire TIDAL if it hopes to compete with Spotify. 

While TIDAL has the lowest number of subscription of the three major music streaming apps, it still has an edge in terms of big name artists exclusivity. Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kanye West all released their last album excluisvely on TIDAL first and Apple Music and Spotify subscribers have to wait weeks, sometimes months before getting these music.


Music has become a big part of the mobile world and Apple sees this as a way to entice consumers into buying more of its flagship product the iPhone. Getting the type of exclusivity that TIDAL has with artists could give Apple the edge it needs to wrestle the streaming market away from Spotify.

If the Apple/TIDAL deal does go through it could be good for consumers to gain access to an even bigger music catalog on a Apple device. But it could be bad for some consumers because there would be less choices in the music streaming market which could result in less competition and high subscription fees.

Spotify now has 30 million paying subscribers while Apple has half that number. TIDAL numbers are still sketchy but its believed to be in the 3 million ballpark. TIDAL has also been struggling with leadership issues over the past year after changing at least three CEOs and a bunch of other top execs at the company.

Perhaps the deal could be good for both Apple and TIDAL.

Jay Z’s TIDAL Sued By Artists For 5Million Over Royalty

When Jay Z bought Swedish music streaming firm, Aspiro, for $56 million in March 2015, their subscriber base was figured into the purchase price.

The business mogul, who later renamed the company Tidal, is now seeking to recoup $15 million from the seller, claiming the subscription numbers were inflated.

“It became clear after taking control of Tidal and conducting our own audit that the total number of subscribers was actually well below the 540,000 reported to us by the prior owners,” Tidal said in an e-mailed statement to Bloomberg. “As a result, we have now served legal notice to parties involved in the sale.”

Despite having exclusive content from artists including Beyonce, Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, Jack White and others, Tidal with it's 3 million subscribers still trails it's biggest competitors by a wide margin.

In contrast, Spotify currently has 30 million paid subscribers and Apple Music has more than 11 million.

Jay Z “The Black Gangster” Previously Recorded Unreleased Song

Jay Z’s TIDAL music streaming service was hit with a $5 million lawsuit for withholding royalties from artists and copyright infringement.

John Emanuele of Yesh Music LLC hit the company with the lawsuit claiming that they have not paid Indie artists royalties, as well as, infringing on their copyright.
According to Fortune, John Emanuele is suing S. Carter Enterprises, TIDAL, and two other companies behind the music streaming service. But TIDAL is denying the allegations claiming that they are up to date with royalty payments.
“TIDAL is up to date on all royalties for the rights to the music stated in Yesh Music, LLC and John Emanuele’s claim and they are misinformed as to who, if anyone, owes royalty payments to them,” TIDAL said in the statement. “As Yesh Music, LLC admits in their claim, TIDAL has the rights to the Master Recordings through its distributor Tunecore and have paid Tunecore in full for such exploitations. Their dispute appears to be over the mechanical licenses, which we are also up to date on payments via Harry Fox Agency our administrator of mechanical royalties.”
As news of the lawsuit spreads, TIDAL has also announced that they have fired their CFO and COO. That move could be as a result of the lawsuit.
TIDAL also noted in their statement that Jay Z’s company S Carter Enterprises, LLC has nothing to do with the music streaming service.
“They especially should not be naming S Carter Enterprises, LLC, which has nothing to do with Tidal,” the statement reads. “This claim serves as nothing other than a perfect example of why America needs Tort reform.”
TIDAL is owned by mostly artists including Jay Z, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Kanye West and more.

Jay Z appeared on the witness stand this week for his ongoing “Big Pimpin” trial. The multimillion dollar trial is currently underway in a Los Angeles federal court regarding a copyright infringement on the popular single.

Jay Z claims there is a 'smear campaign' against Tidal app

  • Report claims that app is being affected by delays from Apple, which is launching its own music service this summer
  • Jay Z claims that Tidal already has more than 700,000 subscribers
  • App purchasing data shows that it has fallen out of top 750 downloads 

Jay Z launched a stream of tweets defending his premium music streaming app Tidal after the service, launched last month, was described as a flop.

His social media diatribe comes as reports claim that Tidal is being sabotaged by rivals as it attempts to take business away from more-established music outlets such as Spotify and Apple.

'We may not be perfect - but we are determined,' he said while claiming that there are 'many big companies that are spending millions on a smear campaign'. 

'We are here for the long haul,' the rapper and businessman tweeted in a string of 'stream of consciousness' messages.

Feeling the need to vent: Jay Z decided to take to social media on Sunday in an aggressive push after what he saw as a 'smear campaign' from big companies against Tidal

Jay Z, who paid $56 million for TIDAL's technology in January and relaunched it in March, went on the offensive against the supposed smear campaign.

Tidal has potential rivals including popular streaming service Spotify and tech giant Apple, though Jay Z did not post any details about the alleged campaign.

After Tidal was criticized because of the wealth of its founders, the rapper said that other big tech companies also have huge amounts of money.

'Rich getting richer? Equity values... YouTube $390 billion. Apple $760 billion. Spotify $8 billion. Tidal $60 million,' he said. 

On Sunday Page Six claimed that there's also a 'war' looming between Tidal and Apple.

Citing industry sources, the New York Post's gossip site alleged that tech giant Apple is trying to impede Tidal ahead of the scheduled relaunch in June of its own Beats Music by taking a long time to approve iOS updates for the Tidal app.

'Tidal had a new app on Android on April 15, but still hasn’t received approval for Apple’s iOS app store,' a source said. 

The site claimed that after Rihanna's song American Oxygen debuted on Tidal, there were technical problems with her music on iTunes.

Apple told Page Six that the allegations that Rihanna's songs were deliberately scrambled are not true.

The spokesperson declined to comment on the other claims made in the article, according to Page Six.

War looming: A report from Page Six on Sunday said that Apple, which is launching its own music service, is trying to stop any growth by Tidal by delaying availability of updates for its app

In the same article, Page Six also alleged that Robert Kondrk, vice president of iTunes Content, has said any artists who put out exclusive music on Tidal won't be featured artists on iTunes.  

The article also reported that Sony Music will not grant Tidal a license to stream from Sony artists, one of whom is, of course, Jay Z's wife Beyonce.

A representative for Sony Music declined to comment to Page Six.   

A month ago, some of the biggest names in music joined Jay Z for the launch of Tidal but the $19.99 a month subscription service is floundering in the app downloads charts.  

According to Billboard.com on Sunday, Tidal, which launched on March 30, has fallen out of Apple's top 750 apps, after a peak at No. 83 on April 7.

The rapper's Twitter rant and news of tensions with other tech companies come after a week of bad press for TIDAL. 

The company's CEO Andy Chen also recently left the company amid a 'streamlining' of staff.

Even those close to Jay-Z were seen as moving away from the potential failure.

Co-founder Kanye West changed his Twitter avatar away from a logo for the service and deleted all mention of it from his account earlier this week.

He later reaffirmed his support for the service in a tweet saying 'The love of music is louder than words'.

Despite reports of its stuttering start, Jay-Z insisted on Twitter that Tidal is doing just fine.

'We have over 770,000 subs. We have been in business less than one month,' he tweeted, and included the hashtag #TidalFacts.

Tidal is co-owned by Jay Z, Kanye West, Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, Jack White, Alicia Keys and others.

In his Sunday stream of tweets, Jay Z stressed that the service pays a 75 percent royalty rate to all artists and not just the high profile founders who appeared on stage at the launch.

Other info he shared under the hashtag #TidalFacts included that 'iTunes Store wasn't built in a day' and 'It took Spotify 9 years to be successful.' 

TIDAL has attempted to differentiate away from its competitors by billing itself as having higher quality audio and being focused on rewarding those making music.

Jay-Z referenced Tidal X which 'supports artists by giving them a platform to connect with their most loyal fans. Tidal is for all.'

Canadian producer and performer Deadmaus5, who joined Jay Z on stage for the Tidal  launch in New York, jumped on the bandwagon Sunday.

He tweeting his followers:  'despite whatever dumbs**t preconceptions you may or may not have about tidal, im still behind it. Im in it for industry growth, not PR. (sic).'

Several artists have publicly criticized the roll-out, saying that Jay Z made it seem as if some of the world's biggest musicians wanted more money.

'When they say it's artist-owned, it's owned by those rich, wealthy artists,' Marcus Mumford, the frontman of Mumford & Sons, said in a recent and widely-disseminated interview with The Daily Beast website.

Show us the money! Jay-Z, Kanye and Beyonce unite music's biggest stars to launch new Tidal streaming service to kill off Spotify and get a bigger cut for themselves (for $20-a-month) (VIDEO)

As reports start to trickle in about Jay Z's Tidal streaming services flopping, one of it's biggest backers appears to be distancing himself from the fledgling company.

The NY Daily News reports that Kanye West has scrubbed his Twitter of all mentions of Tidal. He even removed the company's logo as his avatar and replaced it with a picture of his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy artwork.

It's a strange move from someone who was an initial big backer of the company and a good friend of it's CEO.

A host of the biggest names in the music industry have joined forces to launch Tidal, a streaming service being billed as the first artist-owned platform for music and video.

Rihanna, Madonna, Beyonce, Usher, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire, Jack White and Kanye West joined a host of other stars as they were revealed as co-owners of the subscription service, which is the brainchild of Jay Z. 

Unlike rivals Spotify, the service will not have a free tier - meaning the musicians stand to make more money from it.

WHAT IT WILL COST

The membership-based service - similar to subscription service Spotify - will provide music and exclusive video content that users can stream on computers, tablets and smartphones or listen to offline. 

Unlike Spotify there isn't a free service. 

It is being offered to U.S. users at two price points: about $9.95 for standard sound quality and $19.99 for 'lossless high fidelity sound quality.'

Tidal streams at 1,411 kilobytes per second - well above the 320 for premium subscribers of Spotify, which offers lower levels for free users.

Alicia Keys said the artists hope Tidal will 'forever change the course of music history' and ensure the viability of the industry at Monday's launch event in New York City.

The celebrities - which also included Nicki Minaj, Jason Aldean, Usher, Arcade Fire and deadmau5 - stood in a line, and in solidarity by mostly wearing black onstage as Keys spoke to the audience at Skylight at Moynihan Station in Manhattan. 

Keys called the event 'a graduation.'

'So we come together before you on this day, March 30th, 2015, with one voice in unity in the hopes that today will be another one of those moments in time, a moment that will forever change the course of music history. 

'For today we announce of Tidal, the first ever artist-owned, global music and entertainment platform,' Keys said.

However, details about the streaming service were vague.

Earlier claims were made that Tidal offers artists double the streaming rates of its rival. 

However, the firm has confirmed if this is still the case.

The difference means that Tidal offers higher sound quality for audiophiles with advanced sound systems - but that casual listeners using simple laptops or smartphones may face slower connections.

The venue for the event was transformed to display a walkway paying tribute to the different decades in music, starting with the 1950s.

HOW THE STREAMING SERVICES COMPETE
Service  Cost 
Tidal $9.95 for standard sound quality and $19.99 for 'lossless high fidelity sound quality' 
Spotify   Free Premium level with ads, Premium $10 per month service
Beats Music   $9.99 per month or $99 per year

Coldplay's Chris Martin and Calvin Harris, who both appeared via video, are also co-owners.

'Our mission goes beyond commerce, it goes beyond technology. 

'Our intent is to preserve music's importance in our lives,' Keys said. 

'Music is the language of love, of laughter, of heartbreak, of mystery. It's the world's true, true, without question, universal language.'

Each of the owners signed documents at the event as the audience screamed when they walked to a table in the center of the stage.

Offering curated playlists and 'editorial', Tidal already has deals in place with all the major record labels. It will also work when offline, with users able to 'listen on the subway'.

The artists hope the service can compete with platforms including Spotify and Apple's soon-to-be revamped music service involving Beats Music.

Streaming - which allows users to play unlimited on-demand music online - has quickly shaken up the industry, narrowly edging out CD sales in revenues last year in the United States.

Industry leader Spotify says it has 60 million users with 15 million of them paying - generally $10 a month.

Spotify already has a range of rivals including US-based Rhapsody and Google Play.

Paris-based Deezer is the second larger service with 6 million customers. It is strong in Europe and last year entered the United States as a high-end-only service.

The most recent numbers for Tidal are at 540,000, according to the company.

Like Tidal, Deezer's elite service uses FLAC files which are larger than MP3s, which are most common for music.

Apple - which pioneered digital music through iTunes in 2001 - is reportedly also looking to launch a new streaming service as the market shifts away from permanent downloads.

Apple earlier made a bid for streaming customers by buying Beats Electronics, run by another rap mogul, Dr. Dre.

Along with the United States, Tidal runs in major markets including Britain and France and plans to launch later this year in Australia and Germany.

Alicia asked the crowd to: 'think about how many times music has personally picked you up and reminded you that you can do it again.'

'Music speaks to all of us,' she said. 'Music brings us together, it connects us all. 

'Music is so powerful - that is what Tidal will be. A place for connection between artists and fans.

'The place to discover the music that will become the soundtrack for the rest of our lives.'

The launch came after a huge social media push, in which the stars devoted their Twitter and Facebook pages to promoting Tidal.  

The mastermind behind the new system, Jay Z purchased Swedish tech company Aspiro for $56 million earlier this year to take control of Tidal.

Before the purchase in February he reportedly hosted a meeting of the music world's biggest stars at which he lamented 'crass commercialization'.

Daft Punk's two members were key figures in deciding on a strategy during the meeting days before the Grammy Awards at The Fig House event space in a remote part of Pasadena, Los Angeles. 

And it appears Jay Z's business mind convinced them to open their pockets, and sign on as 'co-owners'.

Norwegian business daily Dagens Naeringsliv reported in January that Jay Z's company was particularly interested in Wimp's high-fidelity Tidal streaming service which is being launched on the U.S. market.

'The Wimp/Tidal service has the potential for greatness, given that it has high-end audio capabilities,' music specialist Simon Dyson at corporate analytics firm Ovum told AFP in an email, adding that the $56-million price tag was 'not excessive'. 

Jay-Z is one of the world's best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 100 million records. Forbes estimated last year that his net worth was $520 million. 

Spotify was a pioneer in the streaming music business. The unlisted company boasted 15 million paying subscribers in mid-January and is available in 58 countries.

Comment by mr1stroke on January 23, 2017 at 5:03pm

why do these negros keep selling what they built, thats why they are no black companies that is why there is no wealth in the community or from the community, that is why negros are always looking for jobs, if you are going to sell why not sell among each other at least we know it still black own, that money you have call liquid cash we know how fast that can dissappear, assets is what those wealthy people sit on why you think donald trump always filing bankrupcy and turn it into cash, come stop standing for just a dollar bill

Comment by Dave on July 3, 2016 at 3:27pm
Sometimes people create startups and sell off the company. Believe it or not sometimes that's the gold. I don't know if that's the case here but there's is a lot a money to be made on creativity.
Comment by mr1stroke on July 1, 2016 at 3:17pm

lol its sad niggas never own nothing, soon their build something they let it go for a few dollars, but never ask their selves why would someone give you all that money for what you build, well lets see for the idiots who are impress by the liquid money, that is why niggas always go broke, there will come a time the money will worth nothing the only way to stay rich is to have assets, why do you think big corporations merging and taking over small corporation, every time we turn around there is a white company dated since 1700 or 1800 but niggas have nothing, money is all you will always have and i understand when you are born with nothing you become impressed by what you see, like the nice things that money can buy so in your mind money is everything, but you dont have the mentality to invest, i have own several names for website i pay the hosting and make sure i won all names since AOl came out i knew they would be valuable, now i get to license them which means i still own them, but getting pay every time someone else make money, in other words for idiots who are impress by the dollar bills i get pay while someone else do the work, which allows me time to work on something else, not too bad for a dude who came from the streets and can tell corporate america to kiss his ass at everything, seriously jay z everything is not for sale learn how to keep one and pass it from generation to generation this is the only way you can build wealth other wise all you have is riches big different

This is hilarious. Hmmm let's me see. This is a white man system and game. He should of started his own to watch it grow. Instead of buying a failing system. He just got suckered. Lol
Comment by Life_Is_Good on April 1, 2016 at 1:54pm

He needs to sue his business advisers. Any schmuck down the street would have inquired about SOLID FACTS about the current number of bonafide PAYING customers. I don't understand why someone would pay for streaming music or pay to listen radio stations, such as, Sirius. To me that is like paying for oxygen to breathe. I have listened to FREE radio all my life, and will continue to do so FOREVER. Why pay for TIDAL services, when you can listen/view the equivalent for FREE elsewhere.

Comment by Layla on March 3, 2016 at 5:48am
I don't know why so many black people make bad business men/women, is it because they don't understand the difference between being rich and wealthy? Wealth is something that is build over a generation. So when in business, black employers have to pay their employees their agreed salary, treat their workers with respect and just get rid of the street hustler mentality if you are build a business that can generate wealth for many generations. As for Jay Z, he is known for not paying his employees fairly and was also sued for that practice.

That's why we will never rise as a people to many of these lowlife bastards are out for self, but when dumbass black people continue supporting them why the hell wouldn't they keep doing it.

I never liked his dumbass, the very definition of a sellout N****!!!!!!!! Jay as well.
