beyonce and Jay Z at Shuko SPL

Rap mogul Jay Z responded to the growing criticism over his TIDAL music streaming app. Jay Z teamed up with other big-name artists to promote the music streaming service that he and his silent partners purchased for $54 million.

Within minutes of Jay Z's TIDAL announcement this week, Black Twitter took to social media to express their disapproval of the multimillionaire's plans to charge them $20 to stream hi-definition music.

Many fans have grown wary of deep pocket stars who ignore the larger issues affecting the black community, while the stars live high on the hog.

"What are artist gonna DO to make ME more money?" tweeted @Rebeleflor.

Jay Z responded to the backlash in a Q&A organized by the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music on Wednesday.

Jay Z defended his expensive tastes, comparing his wealth to Apple, Inc's openly gay CEO Tim Cook.

"I guess by having a conversation, and telling people what it is. That opinion came before we even explained what it was — "This thing is horrible! … What is it?" You know? You never hear Tim Cook's net worth whenever he tries to sell you something. Steve Jobs, God bless, he had to have been pretty rich — nobody's ever said, "Oh, the rich getting richer! I won't buy an iPhone!" Yeah, right. It's not about being pretentious; again, this is a thing for all artists."

He also compared the TIDAL app to Spotify which charges users $9.99.

"You pay $9.99 for Spotify, so why not $9.99 for TIDAL. We're not asking for anything else, we're just saying that we'll spread that money to artists more fairly. We're not saying anything other than that, and we're saying that we're in a position to bring light to this issue. We're using our power that way."

The aging rapper reflected on the larger social issues that affect the black community, and the fact that Jay Z is never seen marching for black civil rights.

"And of course there are greater causes, of course. This is not mutually exclusive — there are other problems, real problems going on in the world. We don't miss the problems; we try to take care of them all. Imagine the President: he has to take care of ISIS, gay rights, equal pay for women, discrimination — all at the same time! So, you can't say "You started this site when you should be out in St. Louis!" It's like, okay, J. Cole is out in St. Louis. I wasn't in St. Louis, but I was in the governor's office. Because, we can march all day long but if the laws don't change, then we'll be marching again and it'll just be a different slogan on the shirt, and that's a greater tragedy as well. Everyone has to play their part, everyone has to do different things, and it all has to happen at the same time."

The 45-year-old father of 3 remains silent on recent reports that he agreed to settle out of court with an illegitimate son he sired 21 years ago.

    @DUB
    “The new Executive Order will, among other things, give the government access to all infrastructure components that they deem critical to national security. That means everything from physical power grid components to virtual servers like your web hosting company.

    “As used in this order, the term critical infrastructure means systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.”

    So, basically everything that is connected to a network now falls under the control of the U.S. government. And whatever policy the government says needs to be followed will be followed.

    “The Cybersecurity Framework shall include a set of standards, methodologies, procedures, and processes that align policy, business, and technological approaches to address cyber risks.”

    The E.O. stops short of getting into certain policy specifics, especially regarding what to do in the event a cyber security attack to our critical infrastructure is identified, but given that the President has already reserved the right to shut down the internet using a kill switch as he deems necessary (the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act), we can take a pretty good guess at what would happen, and we’re fairly certain that this will soon be written into policy. Whether those regulations will be made available to the public remains unclear.

    What we do know is that this executive order, combined with a previous action by Obama known as the Executive Doomsday Order, gives the President jurisdiction over not just the internet, but every resource in America, including your very person.

    The signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order grants the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and other agencies complete control of all US resources :eek: , including the ability to seize, confiscate or re-delegate resources, materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense (READ THAT CHIT AND THINK ABOUT IT!)

    The new order provides specific definitions for each of these essential infrastructure elements, indicating that all resources, not just those owned by large farms and businesses, are to be directly controlled by the government. Thus, if you think the investments you made in digging a water well, building a solar array, or stockpiling food were for your own personal use, think again:

Smh it's a good venture but they could've rolled it out better. Why did they choose those artist? I particular Rhisnna who doesn't write any of her music?

    I now you was messing with me. But I'm saying they gave an INTENT of the law... but the actual verbiage is something different.
    See:

    “As used in this order, the term critical infrastructure means systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.”

    So, basically everything that is connected to a network now falls under the control of the U.S. government. And whatever policy the government says needs to be followed will be followed.

    Obama is a crafty mofo. He been working on trying to get this passed since October of last year. When he COULDN'T bypass the constitution, he said phuck it. Ima make it an executive order instead and release on April Fools (and in the midst of the foolish discrimination law) so no one will notice. :yes:

    @Nef this quote got me thinking that's what he was saying...

    "You never hear Tim Cook’s net worth whenever he tries to sell you something. Steve Jobs, God bless, he had to have been pretty rich — nobody’s ever said, “Oh, the rich getting richer! I won’t buy an iPhone!” Yeah, right. It’s not about being pretentious; again, this is a thing for all artists.”

    I am a fan so I wish him luck but me personally I'm not buying it. I already own whatever music I like by those artist. :)

    ^^ If taken out of context LIKE SANDRA is wont to do yes it will read that way.

    Read the Q&A entirely.. what he is saying happens exactly the same way on this very thread. :eek:
