What percent of people in music actually make more than they spend?

Whose fault is that?


Art*ts' financial responsibility is a whole different subject


Plus, how do u even spend it without making it first

Yall say this sh*t every time


This sh*t has BEEN explained

He is literally explaining what to do and u n*ggas come running in here ready to make excuses



Why is this site so damn stupid ?

From the race threads in the news section, to the music game and financials

It's always some wack a*s "bbut but but" sh*t


n*ggas think just being related to somebody or next to them means something

At the end of the day your BUSINESS gotta be straight

This is simple mathematics and knowing how to tap in to the market

Yall stuck on the old school definition of independent

I knew it was sum kinda industry sh*t. Appreciate it plair
U n*ggas are idiots




At the 1:52 mark, not only does he explain how he got his fanbase, he even speaks directly on the privilege yall claim he has. He literally said he didnt have that special privilege of an industry connect to just press buttons and get him on


This is why u shouldn't a*sume sh*t

n*gga had 11 projects out before hitting sound cloud and finally started studying the game and figuring out how to release music properly

Whats a pimp named slickback talkin about? He should start a label, he seems like hes passionate about the sh*t. I think if you going to do what he doin you gotta name names and really stick your neck out there.

Say bruh u got any recommendations on how to get better at photoshop?? I took a class in HS but that aint sh*t

Any articles or vids or sum?
From my 25+ years of photoshop experience (since I was 11 or 12) I've learned that the #1 skill that's a must is to get nasty with the pen tool.. get comfortable cropping things out using the alt n control shortcuts on ur keyboard to curves lines and move the anchor point to the direction in which u making ur next line.. by doing it this way u get that nice smooth edge.. amateurs use the wand tool and that sh*t leaves jaggedy edges.. check out pen tool tutorials on YouTube.. honestly I barely learned much taking graphic classes in HS n College.. i was ahead of whatever they coulda taught me at that point from all the tutorials I watched thru out the years.. Youtube's the best teacher u could get..

I dont wanna keep spamming the russ YouTube interview but scroll up a couple posts

Yall gotta realize this n*gga had the same story as anybody else..started making beats at 14, dropped 11 projects, then took the sound cloud route


And eventually after linking with Columbia, his songs peaked in the top 100

This sh*t was hard and I can see why it popped



It helps to actually have a single that finally connects..from then on, sharpen your business end up EARLY. He said it himself it's a lotta money in streaming.

I really dont think its complex if u got good music and a hustler spirit. This is hands down the easiest time to get in this sh*t. Look how many women have gotten on in the past year or so alone


These bi*ches see this sh*t

I'm tellin u

No.son of a dude who owns a marketing company. But that didn't help him get his music on radio. It helped him understand how to market his sh*t though

I know some local rappers who are actually dope...

but the gripe they have is that they wanna be successful but think they need to go viral on the shaderoom or breakfast club to get rich ....

i keep telling them fu*k all that just make dope music and get on spotify playlist and people will play your stuff.
All that sounds good, but it costs money. You have to pay to get on those playlists, you're competing against labels with millions to spend. Not to mention features, getting on shows etc. Everybody is gonna charge you.

Indy labels like Empire who do 80/20 splits are the best compromise in my opinion.
