Back in 2016, Kanye West and TIDAL were issued a lawsuit for allegedly deceiving fans into subscribing to the streaming platform by advocating that West’s The Life of Pablo album will only be available on their platform.
In February of 2016, Kanye tweeted that the album “will never never never be on Apple” and that “it will never be for sale” aside from TIDAL. In June 2018, the suit moved forward as a class-action lawsuit.
Today (Jan. 30), The Blast reports that Kanye West and lead plaintiff Justin Baker-Rhet have reached a deal to dismiss the lawsuit. In newly filed documents, Baker-Rhet reportedly states that he and West “hereby stipulate and agree to the dismissal of Plaintiff’s individual claims with prejudice and the putative class’s claims without prejudice, with each party to bear its own attorney fees and costs.”
TIDAL gave the same statement to Pitchfork: “TIDAL, Mr. West and Mr. Baker-Rhett have resolved their differences amicably and the lawsuit has been dismissed.”
