Didn't he have a line where he said he "flew over the debt"? Can't remember the song name right now

It's on the album by the way

well yeah

the labels must give him around 10m+ per album to promote, market, bring in other producers and whatnot

he owes the label that money back, we all know that's how it works

so that's what he means. he's still a slave to those labels and will have to keep paying back what they invested in him. this is why major deals are incredibly dumb now, but we didn't know this back when people like Ye & 50 (who's smarter?) were signing deals

Are you crazy this isn't the 80's no one has budgets that high anymore,

Yeah I think the debt means that Ye is going to have an incentive to tour big. Means I'll definitely get to see him again.

Can't be nice hanging that over you, but he's got the advantage of being able to pick a stadium, book it, and sell it out.

around 10 artists do though, the ones they bet really heavy on, like JB, Ye, Adele, maybe Gaga & T Swift, One Direction, that blonde chubby girl who's famous because of connections. stupid money is still used.

Adele sold 15m copies of an album and One Direction made 750m last year. 10m investments here and there pay off

Adele budgets have never needed to be big, XL artists are all the same, the music speaks for itself, no nonsense.
