Ignoring the hater...
How does Cash Money profit of this? It seems like he's getting...everything.
He retains the publishing rights to his songs and cedes only around 25% of his music sales revenues to the label as a 'distribution fee,' his managers said."
Thats what the record label gets...
Look at it like this Drake is a victim of his own Buzz.
He got a 2 million advance... Record Label terms "You owe me 2 million dollars" have fun.
Now Drake doesnt profit til he pays that 2 million back.
Drake bricks, he owes 2 million.
Drake sells big, label gets 25% of everything.
Drake could own his own Publishing, his rhymes wont be sampled, his songs are mediocre, and his contribution will be minimal at best, so Publishing just means he better hope he becomes the next 2pac or Biggie, so he can eat after he finish rapping.
