For artists of Jay Z's (nay, Jaÿ-Z's) stature, a live concert usually contains nothing but the hits so every fan can enjoy the show. For diehards who have seen their favorite act numerous times, the concert experience can start becoming monotonous. Jay Z, who has toured the world and played his extensive catalog of hits in countless arenas, has taken heed to this and is throwing a special concert that will feature nothing but his B-sides and deep cuts. Every song Hov performs will either be one he has never done on stage, or one he has not performed in at least decade.

Just a few days after going on a rare Twitter rant defending Tidal's business model and the service's future plans, Hov has created a very special concert exclusive to Tidal users only. The show, which will be held at an undisclosed New York City location and streamed on www.tidal.com, will be available to Tidal members who create, name and share a Tidal playlist on Twitter using the hashtag #TIDALXJAYZ. The original release date was May 13 but Jay Z pushed back the date of his B-Sides show to May 16, according to Billboard. He’ll also be performing a second B-Sides show on May 17.

Only one submission is allowed and the playlists will be chosen based on the diversity of artists, incorporation of different genres and overall sequence of the playlist. The submission period will be from April 29 at 7:01 AM (EST) until May 8 at 11:59 P.M. (EST). The full set of rules can be found at www.tidal.com/tidalxjayz. In what could be a pure coincidence, the announcement of the concert comes 30 days after the star-studded relaunch of Tidal meaning that users who signed up for the free trial will have to re-up in order to submit a playlist for consideration.

Some of Hov's best deep cuts and B-sides feature Roc-A-Fella artists and let's not forget that he did two album with R. Kelly before their relationship fell apart. Knowing Jay, he is sure to have surprises in store.As for the new spelling of his name on the flyer, a rep from RocNation says it is how his name appeared on the Reasonable Doubt album in 1996 and is being used for promotional purposes.

Tidal prices appeared to have been increased if you attempt to sign up for the service on the mobile app. Instead of the subscription plans of $9.99 (for Tidal Premium) and $19.99 (for Tidal HiFi), viewers see a 30% increase with prices being shown at for Tidal premium at $12.99 per month and Tidal HiFi at $25.99 a month. A Roc Nation rep stated that the price hike for the app is related to the markup in Apple's app store.

A rep has provided further explanation to Fader: "Apple's policy is to charge TIDAL subscribers a 30% fee on your monthly subscription, for the life of your subscription, if you activate your subscription through the TIDAL app on your iPhone that you have just downloaded. You can easily get the $9.99 or $19.99 pricing by first creating your TIDAL account through TIDAL.com, then go to the App Store to download the TIDAL app. Once it's downloaded you simply hit "Login" instead of "Sign Up" and you will be in the correct pricing plan."

So essentially, Tidal didn't raise their prices.
