Kanye West has been all over the media and the Internet lately with his new album release, his fashion line debuting its third season and his endless Twitter rants. During his most recent Twitter ranting, the rapper of The Life of Pablo and husband to Kim Kardashian West admitted to being several millions of dollars in debt. Unfortunately for Kanye, his new album is about to make him go deeper into debt. What do we mean?
Kanye West Financial Problems
During one of Kanye’s most recent Twitter venting sessions, the outspoken rapper revealed that his new album, The Life of Pablo, will “never never never be on Apple. And it will never be on sale. You can only get it on Tidal.” Tidal is a subscription based music service where the subscriber can pay up to $20 per month to have access to music.
The Daily Mail Online reported that, “West’s latest work has been pirated and downloaded so many times since its release that the rapper has lost $10 million in sales.“
Here’s to hoping that Kanye is able to recover some of that money so as to not go into debt any further due to piracy issues.
