*Prince’s estate wants nothing to do with Jay Z’s plan to buy up any of the late singer’s music catalog and help carry on his legacy by selling his recording on TIDAL. In case you missed it, Jigga had offered around $40 million to take control of Prince’s unreleased tracks.
Sources involved in the deal tell TMZ the estate fired off a letter to Jay’s team last month, saying it had no interest in signing a deal for “Roc Nation to exploit any of the intellectual property assets of the Estate.”
The estate also called out Tidal for making 15 UNAUTHORIZED Prince albums available for streaming a couple months after his death.
Sounds like Jay Z is gonna owe the estate some dough soon.
The estate does acknowledge Prince made a deal with Jay for the 2015 release of his final album, “HitNRun Phase One” — but that deal is on hold until there’s proof that a $750k payment was made to close that deal.

The house boasts 6 bed, 5 bath 5,695 sq. ft., marble floors, gourmet kitchen, arcade room, 2 recording studios, huge pool, jacuzzi and putting green. It will be the second Florida property Ross has sold. His unloaded his Fort Lauderdale pad for over $6M earlier this year.
The rapper, who bought Evander Holyfield’s Georgia mansion in 2014 for $5.8M, gets candid in his latest interview with Rolling Stone. Ross shares his opinion about any given trending topic, including 50 Cent, DJ Khaled’s latest Jet Ski nightmare, his love for Adele and Darth Vader, and thoughts on Donald Trump,
“I would never advocate violence on Trump or anyone. It’s lyrical assassination,” Ross explains. “That’s me being a poet, putting words together in my art form, with no violence in my heart at all. Clarify that. Matter of fact, my cameraman was Trump’s caddy at his golf course for five years, and he says Trump is cool as f*ck.”
