Kanye West Accused Of Tricking Fans To Use Tidal; Responds To Lawsuit

By Daryl Nelson

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Kanye West by some of his fans who claim he misled them by saying his album The Life of Pablo would only be on Tidal.

The plaintiffs said they only paid for Tidal because 'Ye Tweeted that it was the only place they could hear the album -- and when it popped up in other platforms they felt duped.

So what was the rapper's response?

According to TMZ, he argues that The Life of Pablo underwent several changes since it was first released in February of 2016 and that since the original version was exclusively on Tidal he didn't trick anybody.

To counter the "You can only get it on Tidal" tweet, Ye's lawyers are referencing another tweet from a month later:

Who do you think is right in all of this? Ye or the people suing him?
