  1. Jay Z Taking on Spotify

    Hova doesn’t want to miss a beat. Through his company Project Panther, the relentless entrepreneur and rapper is making a bid to buy Swedish music streaming company Aspiro for $56 million, giving him a platform to compete against the likes of Spotify, Beats, Rhapsody and YouTube. Panther plans to “upscale” and expand Aspiro’s services, WiMP and Tidal, focusing on high-fidelity audio that is much better than what Spotify currently offers. Expect Jay Z to make some big noise in this space.
