Cash App Records?! – The Joe Budden Podcast’s reaction to Jay Z’s $297m deal with Square.


When Square, the leader in mobile payments co-founder by Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, announced their acquisition of Tidal, it became the discussion for many tech and music fans.

On episode 421 of The Joe Budden Podcast, they cover some of the main topics of conversation surrounding the deal.

In the tweet above posted by Jack Dorsey, he announces that this deal will put Jay Z on the board at Square and this was celebrated by Mal. Listen below.
