Ye is responding to the class action lawsuit, claiming that he released the original version of the album to the streaming service, while other platforms have alternate versions. According to TMZ, new documents show that Yeezy is insisting that the original version of Life of Pablo is only available to Tidal users, and that other streaming platforms have the project after changes were made to it. The fans filing the lawsuit claim that Kanye misled them into signing up for Tidal and broke his promise, as they believed the project would only be available to them on the platform.
Kanye is also pointing to an old tweet where he said the album is a “living breathing changing creative expression” to bolster his argument, as he has made multiple changes to the project following its official Tidal release. Those changes can be heard on Apple Music and Spotify releases, while the original version is still on Tidal. TMZ reports Kanye wants the lawsuit dismissed, but we’ll have to see what happens moving forward.
