Cash App Records?! – The Joe Budden Podcast’s reaction to Jay Z’s $297m deal with Square.

Posted

When Square, the leader in mobile payments co-founder by Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, announced their acquisition of Tidal, it became the discussion for many tech and music fans.

On episode 421 of The Joe Budden Podcast, they cover some of the main topics of conversation surrounding the deal.

The reported sale price for Tidal was a tidy $297m, a stellar profit from the reported $56m it was bought for some 5 years ago.

In the tweet above posted by Jack Dorsey, he announces that this deal will put Jay Z on the board at Square and this was celebrated by Mal. Listen below.
