Jay-z has been real low key lately recently announcing plans to executive produce a story about Emmett Till and now plans to acquire Prince’s unreleased material.

 “The Watch The Throne” rapper reportedly met with the late singer’s sister Tyka Nelson and her Husband to offer $40 million dollars to obtain Prince’s unreleased material.

While it may sound tempting, but seeing as though legally Tyka is Prince’s only sister, she has to get the okay from the remainder of all their brothers and sisters as well as the okay from trust who also manages the estate.

As Mr. Carter is in the running to get the rights for streaming it will be very expensive as there some serious bids from highers up in the music game.  

Prince’s Guitar Gently Weeps As Madonna’s Tribute Has Mixed Reviews

The late and great Prince cried purple tears as Madonna showcasedher tribute performance at Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. While the stage was dressed beautifully to set the tone to honor the music sensation’s life, the performance didn’t match in comparison. There were some who thought the performance was okay:

 

But most of Twitter blew up with disappointment:

 

Quest Love came to Madonna’s rescue over twitter that night saying, “So I know there is gonna be A LOT of 'feel a certain ways' about who you want to see do his music justice – but you gotta put that aside y'all," he continued. "Every Prince rendition will not be a life changing orgasmic xperience. Just to SING his work is brave enough...But the point is let's not get ugly with playing the 'Prince would and wouldn't approve' game."

Many can pay tribute to the music icon, but one thing is for certain – there will only be one Prince and he set the bar pretty high.
