Uzi is definitely impressed by the rap mogul's recent money moves. Jay-Z took to Twitter on Thursday, March 4, to reveal that Square Inc, owned by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, has acquired a majority stake in his TIDAL at a reported value of $297 million.
Reacting to the news, Lil Uzi Vert took to the micro-blogging app and tweeted:
"D*mn near 300 million on a weekday and Hov still said it was a weak day. Insane."
Jay-Z, who is married to Beyoncé, said the new partnership will be a game-changer for many artists.
"I said from the beginning that TIDAL was about more than just streaming music, and six years later, it has remained a platform that supports artists at every point in their careers. Artists deserve better tools to assist them in their creative journey," he tweeted.
Tweeps have also shared their reactions to Hov's tweet. Check out some of the comments below:
"300 mil a weak day?"
"Jay-Z remains one of my biggest inspirations. Born in the projects, built his own dynasty, self made billionaire, & did it all the right way. When I was down, broken, & alone his music was the only thing that kept me together. Every artist today owes Hov their LIVES."
"Thank You J for this platform. I truly hope it will showcase and eventually incorporate a place for us aspiring artists to post covers :) I can’t wait one day to be signed in your label, and be the 2nd Cameroonian to get a Grammy for our country."
"Congratulations! Thanks for everything you do! We appreciate it! A legend in the game of hip hop and you don't stop. You want to see artists reach the top and help them get the album to drop!"
