sales dont matter to us because we dont see a cut. Vanilla Ice, Hammer, and Nelly sold millions and I think they are wack. Its all about longevity. if you can stey relevant for 3 decades like Madonna then that legendary. If you can stay relevant long after you die like Marvin Gaye then that legendary. If you can sell lots of record and stay relevant that means something no matter if like the person on not. I dont like Garth Brooks but I respect him for his sales and longevity. You can hate Eminem as much as you want, but you can discount what he has done. I f**king hate hate hate Nelly (and I live in St. Louis) , but I respect what he did.

Well Dr Dre and him produced nearly everything he has ever done until now(Recovery has a good few outside producers) so he aint been losing money that way.
no.

dre only produced around 10 songs total off of em's first 3 major records combined, and em has always had help from outside producers.

Alot of people don't realize artist don't get much from CD sales, they usually get anywhere from 25 cents to a couple of dollars if they are lucky per sale, they get s**t from downloaded songs off itunes they make the bulk of their money from concerts, signing bonuses, swag, appearances etc. which makes me laugh at the ignorant people that spout SUPPORT YOUR ARTIST!!oenoen BUY THEIR CD THATS HOW THEY MAKE MONEYZ!oneone

no it isn't.

I mean if u basically avg every cd at $14 a pop 32Mil Sold...this n*gga generated half a billion on sales alone...:agreement6::agreement6: Women Lie Men Lie....Eminem Owns....lord geezus.... I wonder how much bread Eminem sitting on...It doesnt look like he spends his money like the rest of these cats..
u actually think any artist in history has ever made that much profit off a cd?

if a cd costs like 15$ the artist makes like 1$max.. but probably mostly is below that.. depending on the artist/record label/distributing label and their contract

to be honest, he probably only sees like 50 cents per CD sold. dr. dre and jimmy iovine probably get $1-2 per CD sold, and that is probably split between those two.

the real money comes from endorsement deals and performing.

Bad for people that wanna see him though although he is playing Oxegen this year so i`l definitely be at that.Id much rather he concentrated on albums rather than touring anyway even though he would make more money touring.

The whole structure might be different now for new artists with the 360 deals, to my understanding they are giving artists a bigger cut off the cd sales but now the labels are getting cuts out of everything from shows to merchandise ???

Eminem has made a lot of folks rich. Dude has probably generated Interscope, Apple and everybody else about 2-3 billion since he's been out.
