Jay Z took to his long-neglected Twitter account today to defend TIDAL from a wave of bad press this past week examining it’s poor launch strategy and numbers.

I screencapped the stream of consciousness for ya below. A couple things I found interesting: Hov saying that companies are buying up bad press to attack TIDAL and that he revealed the number of subs (which actually seems pretty high for just 1 month. Maybe we shouldn’t be quick to judge whether or not TIDAL is a flop?

And oh yeah, pictured above is Jay Z with the cousin he apparently did send to Nigeria (via Complex)

Of course though, Twitter has a field day when any celeb gets defensive. Here’s my favorite one.
