I read somewhere that DMX was only making 16 or 18 cents to the dollar which translates to about $2.50 an album, but he was on his own label at that point. So he makes more than most.

I also read that some undergound cats make something like $4-6 and album... so obviously they don't need to sell as much to make some money.

Artist also make a good percentage of their money from shows...
Big time artistlike 50 Cent can make upwards of $100 000 $250 000 for a show.
Obviously lesser know artists make less money.

Meanwhile Underground artists are lucky to make a few hundred in a night. That is why so many underground artist tour for like 6 months of the year.
