“Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve,” West tweeted on Saturday morning.

Kanye West went on a Twitter rant Saturday morning about music streaming services Apple Music and Jay Z's Tidal, writing that the “beef” between the two digital companies is “f—ing up the music game.”   

“F— all this dick swinging contest. We all gon be dead in 100 years. Let the kids have the music," the outspoken rapper wrote in a series of tweets. West insisted that Apple executives Tim Cook, Jimmy Iovine and Larry Jackson need to immediately have a meeting with himself, Jay Z, Drake and manager Scooter Braun.  

 

“Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve,” West concluded in the rant.

Earlier this summer, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple is holding early talks about acquiring Tidal.

West's latest album, The Life of Pablo, was released as a Tidal exclusive earlier this year.
