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!

[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]
