Jay Z is once again the proud owner of some historic music

Jay Z is once again the proud owner of some historic music. Jay has been in an epic battle with a guy who was holding the masters to The Life and Times of S. Carter and The Dynasty albums hostage. There were 41 tracks, 31 with Jay and 10 with Beanie Sigel. Chauncey Mahan, a sound engineer on the albums, claimed ownership and stashed boxes of tracks in a San Fernando Valley storage facility. Cops eventually seized the masters, but Mahan didn’t back down. He sued Jay and Roc Nation in July, trying to get a piece of the action. A judge just shut him down, ruling he waited way too long to sue. So Jay Z owns his stuff outright. BTW … ‘Life and Times’ went triple platinum and contains songs like “Big Pimpin’ and “Jigga my N****.

Aspiro, the company Jay Z bought in March for $56 million to launch his new TIDAL streaming company is doing some in-house cleaning. The biggest domino to fall is former Aspiro CEO, Andy Chen.

Chen’s departure was announced by TIDAL.

TIDAL’s new interim CEO is Peter Tonstad – a former CEO of parent company Aspiro Group. He has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo. He’s streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience. We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our company-wide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies. TIDAL’s offices globally will remain and grow: we are already hiring for several new positions now. We’re excited about our future and what’s in-store for fans who want the best listening experience.

25 other employees have left the company due to “streamlining” and “redundancies,” according to Business Insider.

Meanwhile, Jay Z is calling subscribers personally to thank them for signing up for TIDAL.

“He called some of his fans and one of them made the funniest comment. He said ‘This is the best customer service call I’ve ever received!,'” Tidal executive Vania Schlogel told Business Insider.

New CEO Peter Tonstad gave this statement to Breakit:

I believe in TIDAL and what the team is doing to affect the change the music industry needs. We’re streamlining the company and refocusing our resources to ensure the platform continues to grow, and listeners can make a connection to their favorite artists. No one else is doing this.

Kylie Jenner is the cover girl for the May issue of Teen Vogue and the E! reality star opens up about wanting to start a family (not now, you guys!), struggling with self-esteem issues, and what she plans on doing the day she turns 18.

“Having sisters is the best. I have a different relationship with each of them. I go to Kim [Kardashian] for fashion advice, Khloé [Kardashian] is always boy and family advice, and Kourtney [Kardashian] is like another mother to me,” she told the mag.

“When I look to the far future and decide to have kids, I need to have a million girls. Ten years from now—in 2025—I hope I have a kid.”

Kylie also dished that it’s not always easy living her life in the spotlight and being criticized by the public, saying, “I feel like I’ve heard the worst anyone can say about me over and over every day. So it’s like my self-esteem definitely wasn’t good at a point, I guess? But especially having the most beautiful sisters in the world…I just try to find what makes me feel good and be as confident as possible.”

And when pressed on what her big plans are for her 18th birthday—which is coming up on Aug. 10—she shared what she has up her sleeve.

“I’m moving out when I turn 18. I’m ready to live on my own. It’s a really big step, but I’m ready. I wanted a house near my family in a quiet neighborhood with a front yard and a backyard that my dog will like. Also, I have so many shoes, and none of them fit in my old closet.”

E! News previously reported that Kylie bought a $2.7 million dollar mansion near her sisters in Calabasas, Calif. earlier this year.

The social media darling remained mum about her beau Tyga, but she did hint at what she’s really thinking when scrolling through Instagram and stumbling on one of his pics.

“I can’t say who I’m obsessed with [laughs]…I’m not really obsessed with anyone except for the people that I like romantically. I get excited when they post. Sometimes I like to stalk my exes.”

Well, then! To see the rest of the interview check out Teen Vogue on newsstands April 28.

A few months after being hit with a bombshell that the singer may be the daddy of a 9-month-old daughter Royalty, the singer has finally broken his silence on the matter in the form of two adorable photographs.

Taking to Instagram, Breezy indirectly confirmed that he is the father to a beautiful baby girl by sharing this precious picture of himself smiling at his precious little lady, who was matching Brown in a red outfit and showing off the biggest smile.

“God has blessed me with my twin #ROYALTY,” he captioned the snapshot, and followed with another close-up of her gorgeous face as she looks down and flaunts her cheeks, long lashes and cute curls.

Brown seemed to address the matter in a cryptic but motivational post on Instagram just a few days ago. Along with a selfie of Breezy on the basketball court, he wrote, “Every step I take will only be to greatness. Learning myself everyday and striving to make a difference. Thriving not surviving. I can’t make anyone love me or like me but for the people who do, you are highly appreciated and valued. I wanna grow into a great man and take care of my family. In order for me to change the world I have to change my mentality.

TMZ reported that Brown is the father of a 9-month-old baby girl last month. The report stated that the child’s mother is a former model named Nia, whom the 25-year-old rapper has known for several years.

At the time, E! News contacted Brown’s rep, who opted not to comment on the reports, and the recording artist chose not to speak out on the paternity claims.

However, Brown’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran took to Twitter the following morning, and seemed to confirm the reports. “Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me,” she wrote.

Kanye West Lands On Cover Of TIME’s ‘100 Most Influential People’ Issue

Kanye West nabs one of the covers of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People issue. You can pre-order a copy now http://backissues.time.com/storefront/cBackissuesTD2015-p1.html

Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t. Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity—he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut—got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose. In his debut album, over a decade ago, Kanye issued what amounted to a social critique and a call to arms (with a beat): “We rappers is role models: we rap, we don’t think.” But Kanye does think. Constantly. About everything. And he wants everybody else to do the same: to engage, question, push boundaries. Now that he’s a pop-culture juggernaut, he has the platform to achieve just that. He’s not afraid of being judged or ridiculed in the process. Kanye’s been playing the long game all along, and we’re only just beginning to see why.
