cool, I'll cop it from amazon. Along with Budden, Currensy, Banks, Kiss (since he reminded me that "I ain't buy none of his albums, I downloaded them"), and everyone else I listen to. I figure I owe these n*ggas alteast one album purchase.

Amazon always does this for the first week or so of a new album by a big artist. This aint nothing new.

def jam has nothing to do with amazon. when u give something to amazon, amazon has the right to charge what they want to charge for it. when u see them say "real price after u add it to your cart" they explain that.
Wrong brother,

I use to work for Sam Goody's before they were bought out by FYE. and when you make an album, the record labels do have a SRP (Suggested Retail Price) that the companies are suppose to somewhat follow.

But truth be told it works like this.
Artist makes album
Sends album into record company
they finalize and approve it
the record company ships it to distributors
distributors ships it to stores
(but here's the real kicker)
the only one who makes money regardless of sales are distributors. lets say kanye west album doesn't even go gold, all those copies in stores have to go back to the distributor who in returns give's CREDIT(not cash) to the record stores for future shipments.

So with Digital music, you actually don't even need to use amazon because Def Jam could play the distributor if they wanted (as far as digital downloads) Amazon is either doing 1 of 2 things.
1. Going to get payed, not by record sales but because it's the holiday season and people will more times than not, purchase other items after purchasing the Kanye West Album

2. They really want to cut into iTunes money, especially being holiday shopping season and they(itunes) just put up the entire Beatles catalog

Won't be long till major labels start selling their product on Bandcamp and use the pay-what-you-want format. For the most part, it's a minimum of $7, but if you love the album, wanna support the artist, and are clinically insane, you can pay $100.

Amazon knows they can afford to take the loss by discounting the album. They make their money in so many other ways. If they sold food, they'd be in the internet's walmart.

Smh. No wonder Def Jam always having fishy numbers...

and Jay of all people would say "Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Dont"

Why not the album he was referring to came out on Atlantic Records.












Dumb a.ss.

If you can sell a C.D. in stores for $11.99, well when you take away the hard copy of the c.d., the artwork, the case, and all the pressing cost, then a $3 price makes sense to me, I would at least charge $5 but I'm greedy.

2 things:

Its better to offer the album for next to free bc if not, n*ggas gonna go get it for free anyway. $3.99 is most likely the threshold lmao.

Nicki Minaj is "moving plastic" already so I don't see why she wont be able to sell plastic (CDs)
