Snoop Dogg just gave a Jay-Z's new album a rave review, but unfortunately also admitted that he had to get a mate to download it illegally because he can't work out Tidal.

The rapper was in the middle of giving Jay-Z a "shout-out" for his new record 4:44 on YouTube, before he went on to reveal that a fruitless search on iTunes ended with him getting a friend to "bootleg" him a copy instead.

"I wanna shoot a shout-out to Jay-Z: just dropped another motherfucking hot album, 4:44," Snoop announced in the short clip. "But you know what? I don't got Tidal, so a n—a had to bootleg it to me. I'm on iTunes and shit, 'cuz, I don't understand that shit - y'all gotta explain that to me.

"I went on iTunes looking for his album and I couldn't find it, and my homie sent it to me, you understand me?"

4:44 was briefly available for download on Tidal for free and without a subscription on Sunday, but the album is now only available to Tidal subscribers.

It was recently reported that Jay-Z ran every track on the album past Beyoncé, with producer No I.D telling the New York Times: "I always call Bey our de facto A&R. Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet.

"Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes. She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records. Of course she's genius-level with that. "

Meanwhile, even though Snoop confessed to owning a pirate copy, he went on to stress the importance of supporting other artists.

"Shout out to Jay Z, he did it again," he went on. "I ain't no hater, I love the game for what it's worth. Practice that. Practice showing love. Practice supporting other motherf***kers other than yourself.

"Yeah. Do that."
