Artists don't get that much per CD unless they put them out themselves. If you're on a label and someone else is putting up the money, you'll be lucky if you even see half a dollar per sell. Even with what they make from record sales, they gotta pay the label, lawyers, taxes and other expenses that came from putting together the album.
u wrong cuz. thing is they only proly pay for the distribution. these n*ggas aint dumb now. cam know wat he doin. s**t dont even cost that much if you do all your production, recording, masterin, and all that. U actin like these n*ggas on majors. Pretty sure he wouldnt just put some s**t out and not expect to make profit. Come on now.

depends if he's on an indy or not, he can eat pretty well off of selling 2,000......7 dollars for each album sold?


21,000........., not much, but for an artist that's barely out there media wise, with no radio appearances....not too bad.



that money won't last long at all though, unless he goes on tour, and who's to say duke isn't getting at least like 5k a show?.


10 shows+5k each= 50k right there....plus the album sales money=71,000 right there.
i had 2 think 4 a min like am i krazy cuz nobody understand $7 times 2, 000 = $14,000 wtf

This. You gotta put that shyt into a pie graph chart lol. Indies like eOne music that distributed his album pay like 7 bucks per album over $15. But he gotta pay back dist. fees production fees, alll kinds of shyt. I wouldnt be surprised if he didn't even pass the $10k mark on profit.

Shyt i'd be happy with $10k form album sales though hahaha so fuk it big ups to anyone w/ an album that gets physical distrbution cuz its hard to do that shyt

yeah but, this album is straight indie.. they dont have many expenses... is that first week numbers?? thats not great, but its not bad either.. theres barley any marketing dollars put in it at all.. i doubt they were tryna do big numbers.. they were just puttin a project out, which is gonna be all profit... i dont know much about this album or what label its under, but im sure he either got paid flat out off top, and sold the album to the label.. or they put it out themselevs.. and if u have ur own label goin thru distributor.. ur gettin $8-$6 a cd.. thats almost $20,000.. with just first week or first couple weeks.. lets say.. its Cams label.. came takes 10 and pays Vado 10.. thats 10G's each.. with just first couple weeks, thats not bad for indie.. in a few months its probably gonna be at like.. atleast 6 or 7,000 thats like $56,000.. plus they put out a few indie projects, mixtapes and other little s**t.. a bunch of those all add up to make coo indie money.. and the net messes all that up, cuz u know how many people downloaded it.. alot of those people woulda bought it before internet...
so thats not all that bad for something that they arent aiming too high for.. his buzz isnt that big, its just to make music..drop product, and make a few bucks doin it.. few of those a year bring in sum nice size checks every 90 days
