Kanye West made headlines this week when he made a triumphant return to the stage with Kid Cudi, but it seems that far, far bigger things are in the works. Reports have emerged that Kanye has filed trademark for something called “Yeezy Sound,” indicating moves toward a possible streaming service.
Filed on November 2, 2017, the the trademark stipulates that Kanye will be able to use Yeezy Sound on all “streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content over the internet.” Few other details are known, and as of press time, Kanye’s team has yet to comment. However, many believe that this may be his attempt to create a rival streaming service to JAY-Z’s TIDAL, particularly after claims that JAY has yet to pay all the royalties he is owed.
