He takes 100% profit from each one of his shows, since its just him and a DJ playing tracks. Wasn't anything special about his show just came out did his thing and left. Went back stage smoked and banged sorority girls. (pre-Amber)
what?!?!! no artist ever, in the history of the music business has ever gotten 100% profit off a show... you really have no clue whats involved in putting together a show when you say some sh*t like that. DJ makes money yes, he makes money yes, his management take 20%, whoever his tour manager is (separate from regular manager) takes probably 5%-10% per show, on top of that he has to give something to atlantic, no new rapper has a deal that excludes the label completely from all money the artists takes in, just some have a better split than others, a non-360 deal doesn't exist for people who haven't at least had a couple of albums out, no matter what they tell you, again some people have much better splits than others but it doens't mean they don't give up something in the exchange....
and where in the world do you think this guy really took in 11 mil? sure his gross could have been 11 mil, but lets take out taxes at least 40% with federal and state, living expenses, taking care of family, taking care of his friends, then factor in all his management fees probably close to 25% all said and done, 5% to his lawyer for sure, he is lucky to have walked away fro 3.5mil... thats an insane amount of money for someone like wiz to take in a year after its all said and done, but you people act like everybody who is in entertainment doens't have to pay taxes and their employees like every other business
