The streaming industry about to be lit
unless you have an actual benefit or reason for them to sign to you

such as birdmans money he can offer to young bummy street niggas
suge wise talking and street muscle
and lyors connections, track record and shadowy hand to shift circumstances in his favor

then really what are u aspiring to be...a character you think you see lol

you’d b better off working for a label and carrying out their dirty work on salary than starting one with the intentions of fucking your artists and you already arent smart or crafty enough to be doing some finesse shit. thats not the type of shit u just wake up one day and decide to be on lol. especially in the music industry where it can take 5-10 years to have one successful act that only has a short run on top of that.

Imagine bitching about this
A shitload of generated money goes back to promo and marketing needs plus you need to pay other people too - engineers etc
Albums dont have tv commercials anymore.

Only certain type of artists have billboards and that costs a couple hundred or thousand per month for the 2-3 months max that it would b up.

Twitter/IG/YT ads are cheap af.

studio time which pays engineers aint that expensive.

where is all this money going. stop letting them finesse your mind.

especially in the context of capitalism and the cog in the machine lifestyle we live that i wanna give him the benefit of the doubt as the overall point he was trying to make
the way he tied it to 'build your own I said how sway' was def intentional . Which is kinda relevant to this thread. It's hard for these artists not to be a cog in the machine abd build their own they just want people to hear their shit and get a career from it first

Some1 going to crack it one day tho imo

Tbh

If you want to make money in the industry here's what you do
A) get a job in the industry and work that job and hustle for all your life is worth and network like mad
B) after a few years once you have a really strong network and experience managing artists find a popping new artist who you think you can get to agree to a management deal. Sign to a management deal with them while they're independent

Then if you actually have the talent you claim to have you turn them either into a big artist and take your direct cut of touring and album revenue

Or you get them signed to a label and take your cut of the deal

We’ve know for a while that artists don’t actually make much money off of the music itself though?
eh.

in the album sales heyday they did bc of CDs.

now they dont because companies and streaming sites just being greedy with the breakdown of monies.

why are people so eager to concede to the artist getting fucked when everyone loves music. sometimes this world is so dumb.
