Today, Roc Nation’s distribution company Equity Distribution made its CEO’s debut album available to many other streaming services. The 1996 debut studio album was available exclusively on TIDAL for years. Now, it is accessible to fans globally. Hey, you can’t knock the hustle, so don’t try.
Equity’s President Krystian Santini told Variety:
We want to help create a viable path to sustained growth for every independent artist we work with, so they can remain in control of their careers. EQ empowers artists and labels, by providing a home for them to grow and a team to support them, without taking their masters or limiting their freedom of movement.
