Musicians are getting into the tech game heavy. Chamillionaire recently visited the TechCrunch Mobile Conference, and Justin Timberlake nabbed a piece of MySpace ... and now, Kanye West and Lady Gaga are the latest to put their money behind technology.
West and Gaga recently joined forces to put their money behind rising NYC start-up, Turntable.fm.
According to Business Insider, the celebrity investors teamed up with Union Square Ventures to give the invite-only social network a $7.5 million cash infusion.
For those not familiar Turntable.fm, it's centered on listening to music with others, giving a "thumbs up" to favorable tracks and earning "DJ points," which win users avatars in the form of colorful animals and weird shapes.
Critics have questioned whether the service is actual legal, but getting backing from music superstars such as Kanye and Lady Gaga should help in that department.
