Do you refuse to be ripped off by Tidal just to get Prince material?

It just seems like a rip to me. What happened to simply selling a product to everyone? And when I saw the makeup of the company that a black man purchased, I took a political stand against it as well.

I don't get it.

Why don't you just go to the Tidal store and buy a download?

Am I missing something?

Yeah that. I never subscribed to their streaming service, that's like paying for radio, something I'm too old to accept.

I did purchased lossless downloads from them of material that didn't get a physical release. You don't have to subscribe to Tidal's serice to purchase downloads from them.

We were HERE, where were you?

4 those that knew the number and didn't call... fk all y'all!

I stopped reading at the bold part rolleyes

It never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be against fellow humans and animals, especially when in the pursuit of money and power.

[when you saw that “a black man purchased. I took a political stand against it as well...” sorry, that sounds more like a racist stand. This is unacceptable conversation - blatant racist nonsense. I would strongly urge you to refrain from starting Other like threads. lock - June7]
