Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks on Jay-Z issues with Spotify & YouTube (Video)

There has been a lot of talk recently about music streaming and artists getting what they deserve regarding royalties.  One of the main discussions has been over Jay-Z and his new company Tidal that is marketed as a platform created by the artists for the artists.  There has been some push back from people stating that Tidal is a corporation out here to get rich just like all of the others.  When it comes to Jay-Z recently he has implied that people have no problem supporting the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs but not supporting him because he is black.  Dr. Boyce Watkins speaks on this and questions some of the things Jay-Z speaks on while opening up the discussion on true Black independence.

“Jay-Z can state he has 99 problems but the struggles of the Black Community is not one”Dr Boyce Watkins
