Kanye West and longtime friend Jay-Z may not be collaborating for hit tracks that we love to hear because the rivalry between Apple and Tidal makes it more of a dream that’ll never come to pass.
39-year-old Kanye expressed his anger at a music concert and regrets that the world’s best rappers can no longer make music together due to their business alliances.
The “Gold Digger” rapper spoke at his Seattle concert on Wednesday, expressing concerns that Apple Music and Jay-Z’s Tidal will never permit the rap God and Hov to release a follow-up to their 2011 collaboration “Watch The Throne”.
The ongoing dispute between Apple and Tidal was the reason Kanye removed his verse from Drake’s Views track, “Pop Style.” Or so he claims.
“There will never be a Watch the Throne 2,” Kim Kardashian’s hubby said in the NSFW rant as he stopped over in Washington.
“That’s the reason I wasn’t on this song, I wasn’t on the song ’cause of Hov. ‘Cause of some TIDAL/Apple bulls**t. And that s**t be getting me tight every time I perform this motherf**ker.”

“It went out of that territory and went into some Tidal, some s–t, some political s–t, some s–t about percentages on songs,” Kanye added. “I can’t take this s–t, bro!”
It’s no longer news that Kanye went through troubled weeks following Kim’s horrific robbery attack at a Parisian hotel. Family and friends have shown them support ever since though his wife is yet to get back her social media life.
Meanwhile, the rapper released another Twitter video from his concert in Washington, where he made some comments that the media has interpreted as something for Hov.
“Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say ‘How you feelin’?’ You wanna know how I’m feeling? Come by the house,” Kanye said.
He continues: “Bring the kids by the house, like we’re brothers.”
Rumors have it that the rappers are close but their wives – Queen Bey and Kim Kardashian – seem to have no similar interests, probably a reason their kids never get to play together.
