Jay Z came out fighting Sunday launching a stream of tweets defending his premium music streaming service Tidal. His social media diatribe comes as reports claim Tidal is a flop and rumors swirl that it's being sabotaged by rivals. 'Our actions will speak louder than words,' the rapper and businessman tweeted. 'We may not be perfect - but we are determined.'
