Yesterday at his concert in Seattle, Kanye West blasted Tidal and Apple for there not being a Watch the Throne 2. Kanye explained his frustration just before performing his collaboration with Drake, "Pop Style". Both Jay Z and Kanye appeared on the original version of the song, but both of their verses were removed when Views was released as an Apple Music exclusive.
Rolling Stone reports, "While 'Ye said Jay was partially reluctant to appear on "Pop Style" out of respect for Meek Mill (who's feuded with Drake and signed to Roc Nation), West promised to play peacemaker but was ultimately stymied by the streaming wars. "But then it went out of that territory and went into some Tidal, some s***, some political s***, some s*** about percentages on songs," West fumed at the concert. "I can't take this s***, bro!"
West then explained, "There will never be a Watch the Throne 2. You know why? Because that's the reason why I wasn't on the song – I wasn't on the song because of Hov, because of some Tidal/Apple bulls*** ... So y'all didn't get, what y'all was supposed to get with me and Drake on this song because of some Tidal/Apple bulls***."
However, there was no mention on whether the streaming war between Apple and Tidal would hold up the planned Kanye and Drake collaboration album that was teased earlier this year.
