Making a confession. Snoop Dogg has revealed that he listened to a pirated copy Jay-Z’s critically acclaimed new album, 4:44, because he didn’t have a subscription to streaming music service Tidal. 

“I want to shoot a shout – out to Jay-Z. Just dropped another motherf–king hot album, 4:44, But you know what? I don’t got Tidal, so (a friend) had to bootleg it to me. I’m on iTunes and s–t because I don’t understand that — y’all gotta explain that to me,” Snoop, 45, said in an Instagram video posted Saturday, July 1.
