Jay-Z flew Prince’s sister Tyka, and her husband Maurice to NYC to discuss potentially buying all the unreleased Prince music that was revealed at Paisley Park after Prince’s death.
Reports say that Jay offered around $40 million, but this figure hasn’t been confirmed. If Jay-Z wants to own the music, he has to get approval from Tyka and Prince’s six living half-brothers and sisters. Prince has always supported Tidal. He removed all of his music from Spotify and Apple music and gave Tidal exclusive rights to stream his catalog, so it would seem likely that his family would grant him the rights to everything else.
