That's whats f**king up hip hop it aint about $$$$$. This n*gga won't sell either. And how much money do you think you would see out of a million dollar contract? I don't like Jimmy Iovine but he said it best "You aint worth a million with a million in your pocket". How long do you think this n*gga would last you're just thinking of a get rich quick scheme then when he flops it's on to the next one right? Wrong you'll be gone with that fool.
But you think doing music like Nas will get you a shot? At least you'll have a shot if you went with this. Like I said, why do you give a f**k? If the people you like are still making music, why stress yourself out? You can't change the industry so play your position.
Why can't I go out here and make music that's going to sell? s**t, this is the music industry. If you ain't in it for the money, then why the f**k are you crying? They have Youtube and the Internet now. They can make their music from their basement when ever they aren't working at their job, and they can upload their music to the Internet.
Pop music sells. I thought y'all knew that? It took Illmatic how long to go platinum? Like ten years? While Vanilla Ice went diamond.
