it's kinda like cheating but i respect them, you could basically call it scouting to an extent
yeah, labels can't afford putting money on someone that will flop with people not buying albums anymore. they gotta make sure they have to get some dough outta them first.

I consider an industry plant someone who is signed by a label and then an artificial bandwagon is created, a la Trinidad James. Or even Meek Mill to a certain extent, because while he was popular, he was not THE Meek Mill until Ross got behind him.

IMO an industry plant is someone who is signed before they start dropping mixtapes.

Ever since Drake (who's come up was legit) and even A$AP Rocky to an extent, artists have been chasing that viral snowball fan effect.

You sign someone > Create their persona through vlogs of them in the studio > Take their best song and record a viral vid that creates their image (think ASAP's Peso. Represents everything the mob is in a nutshell.)  > Release a tape > and fans will be clamoring for you to get signed

It's the new version of the fake thug rags to riches stories they used to have rappers go around telling.

However, you have to be in a certain position for the label to even "plant" you. I'd much rather have a quick come-up like Trinidad or Rocky than be like Big KRIT and give away my best work for free and then have ****ty albums.

i think gaga genuinely likes him as an artist. and i blame him ****ing her in the ass for the reason why she wants to show it off all of a sudden.

Lizzy Grant is real, Lana Del Rey is a label creation.

Same goes for Lady Gaga.

I don't really think Lil B fits the industry plant type.

Although he did have a major reinvention. Mm I like this topic
