Jay Z and Kanye West's feud continues as new reports have surfaced claiming that the two have been beefing over money issues involving Tidal, the music streaming company owned by Jay Z.

West, 40, reportedly wants nothing more to do with Tidal because of $3 million dollars he says the company has yet to pay him, according to Wonderwall.

West claims that the money was supposed to be paid to him as a bonus for bringing the company new subscribers following the release of his latest album, "The Life of Pablo," TMZ reported.

He also claims that the company never reimbursed him for music videos.

This comes about a month after West had his lawyers sent Tidal a letter stating that his contract had been breached and that the famous rapper was walking away from the partnership.

However, Jay Z, the 47-year-old "retired" rapper who just dropped his 13th studio album "4:44," is threatening to sue his former friend if he takes his talents elsewhere.

West was one of the co-owners of Tidal, according to US magazine.

The two rappers have been feuding ever since West addressed Jay Z and Beyoncé while performing on his "The Life of Pablo" Tour— a tour that was short lived after West was checked into the hospital for exhaustion, E News noted.

Kanye called the power couple out during a tour stop in Sacramento in November — a concert that started 90 minutes late and ended after just 30 minutes, Rolling Stone magazine noted.

"Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling,'" West said, at the time.

"Jay Z — call me, bruh. You still ain't called me," he added. "Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man."

Jay Z opens up about his relationship with Kanye in "Kill Jay Z," a song off his new album, which was released exclusively on Tidal on Friday, US magazine noted.

"You dropped outta school, you lost your principles. You gave him 20 million without thinkin'. He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f*** was he thinkin'?" Jay Z rapped.
