Jay Z has enlisted Beyoncé, Prince, Nicki Minaj, Damien Marley, Usher, Lil Wayne and T.I. to perform on October 20 in Brooklyn at an event titled, “TIDAL X: 1020”.
The Roc Nation mogul announced earlier this week that one million people have signed up to use his celebrity owned streaming service and the concert will commemorate that achievement. Just for reference, Spotify has over 40 million subscribers, 10 million of which pay for their music streaming … but who’s counting? “TIDAL X: 1020” will also raise money for the New World Foundation charity so there’s that.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 2, at 12 p.m. ET for the general public and will be live-streamed on TIDAL.
Jigga has dealt with a fair share of public backlash over his handling of the streaming service. That criticism was birthed after the rapper appeared at a press conference with a dozen other wealthy musicians who complained in unison about their pockets being hurt by streaming services such as Pandora or Spotify. Their suggestion was for fans to pay double the price of the competitions’ subscriptions services to ensure musicians were making even more money off of their music.
While many understood the sentiment, Jay’s approach left many feeling like he and his rich friends were out of touch with their fan base.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
