Jay-Z and Kanye West Piss Off Indie Retailers

Jay-Z and Kanye West have signed an exclusive deal with iTunes and Best Buy for the release of their highly anticipated joint album “Watch the Throne”. This is something that has made owners of nearly 2000 indie retailers pissed off. They’ve signed a letter addressed to the two rappers, saying “We know that you are busy, and that you put most of your energies into creating great music, but we are writing to you in the hope that you will hear us and take the time to rectify this matter. As representatives of the independent record store music community, we are asking you to allow record stores and music fans equal access to your new album.” Some of them are so pissed that they said they’d pull current and previous releases by the two hip hop artists from their shelves.
