access to the tools and resources needed to succeed, including internet
access and mobile devices,” said TIDAL artist-owner, Nicki Minaj. “I’m
so proud to work with Sprint and TIDAL, who are prioritizing programs
like the 1Million Project in order to ensure that a student’s zip code
and family financial situation aren’t roadblocks to a successful future.”
