TIDAL & Meek Mill Using “Free Streams”
[P Diddy Said Jay z album is Like Bible]-Meek is yet to tell everything coming around Tyler new album,since it surfaced that Meek Mill and Tidal are using free stream to multiply numbers it never seem that easy as Tyler accused Meek and co.a lot of controversial has been the internet comment lamenting with Tyler New Album were Meek and TIDAL involved engaging themselves in the album.   
Last month, despite going “platinum in a week”, JAY-Z’s new album 4:44 did not feature on the immediate Billboard 200 chart after its release. The absence was due to TIDAL not reporting its streaming numbers to Nielsen Music. That week, DJ Khaled posted 70k units for his new album Grateful, a number that many critics believed was inflated due to Roc Nation’s direct relationship with TIDAL. Now it looks like Jay-Z’s company has found itself in hot water again.

Tyler, The Creator, who is fighting with Meek Mill and Lana Del Rey for the number 1 spot on the Billboard 200 this week with his new album Flower Boy, has accused Hov’s streaming service for manipulating the rules in order to take Meek’s Wins & Losses to the finish line. All three albums are expected to move between 80-90k copies in the first week based on early projections. Tyler, The Creator said on Wednesday that the placement of Meek Mill’s Wins & Losses in front of the TIDAL paywall may affect the chart results. On July 25, Meek and TIDAL decided to offer the album for free stream to everyone, whether with or without a subscription. This increases the possibility of inflating the numbers with help of bots etc.
“DAMN TIDAL GOT ALBUMS PLAYING BEFORE A PAYWALL WHICH MAKES ME THINK N*GGAS CAN HAVE BOTS SPIKING UP PLAYS FOR BILLBOARD ON FRIDAY HMM,” Tyler wrote on Twitter, accusing TIDAL/Meek of manipulating numbers. “IM PETTY I WANT THAT TOP SPOT.” Earlier in the day, industry experts HitsDailyDouble also criticized the move, calling it the “most naked example of chart manipulation in recent memory.”
