Although Kanye West’s latest album “The Life Of Pablo” has helped him earn a number 1 spot on the Billboard 200 last week, the creative album may have gotten him into some legal trouble.

According the TechCrunch, a Yeezus fan named Justin Baker-Rhett has filed a lawsuit against Kanye, Jay Z, and their music streaming company Tidal. Back in February when the album dropped, West promised that “TLOP” will be only featured on the new streaming service. This vow has recently been broken according to Baker-Rhett, when the album recently has been featured on other major music streaming services.

“My album will never-never never be on Apple,” he tweeted at the time. “And it will never be for sale… You can only get it on Tidal.”

Rhett claims that the lie was only announced in order to help TIDAL avoid failure. Stating that Kanye West fans were bamboozled into paying for the company’s rescue because they believed they could only hear the album if they downloaded and purchased the app. Following the release of “TLOP,” the platform saw a $84 million (2 million subscribers) more in growth. The album also doubled the company’s subscribers.

Was Kanye wrong for giving a company he owns first dibs on his new album?
