Kanye West slams Apple Music and Tidal

KANYE West has slammed Apple Music and Tidal for ruining the "music game".

The 'Only One' hitmaker has urged Apple to buy his pal Jay Z's exclusive streaming site before they "f**k up" the whole music industry.

He fumed on Twitter: "This Tidal Apple beef is f***ing up the music game ... I need Tim Cook Jay Z Dez Jimmy Larry me and Drake Scooter on the phone or in a room this week!!! ...

"F**k all this d**k swinging contest. We all gon be dead in 100 Years. Let the kids have the music. Apple give Jay his check for Tidal now and stop trying to act like you Steve. (sic)"

And it is no surprise the 39-year-old rapper has made the suggestion after he previously claimed his ideas can make the human race "better".

When asked if he regrets any of his tweets, he said: "Absolutely not. What's the point of thinking? I should have put [the request to Mark] on Facebook. Now I understand why he didn't hit me back. I understand Mark Zuckerberg doesn't use Twitter, even though I have had dinner with him and his wife and told them about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he'd help me, and blah blah blah.

"That's how it feels though, it's like the pursuit of happiness, it's like you're trying to sell this bone density machine, you know in that movie. I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race's existence within our 100 years better. Period."
