Last week everyone’s favourite rapper announced via his favourite bullhorn (i.e. Twitter) that his new album Pablo will “never never never be on Apple” and will “never be for sale.” Obviously that ruled out a vinyl release.

For the moment a Tidal exclusive, The Life of Pablo has been pirated at least 500,000 times, according to Torrent Freak.
