the whole purpose of signign to a major label is that you dont have to promote your self

if rappers have to promote themselves they should just sign to koch records(or any other indy label) and get that 4 dollars an album instead of 25cent an album which they would be getting on a major label like defjam

thats the problem right there.....relying on the next man to do the job that u can do for yourself.....

all a major should do for me is open more doors than i can myself, guarantee more interviews, etc......but the bottom line is that i have to be willing to do those things.....

LL hasnt had any real promotion in the last 5 yrs... Jay-Z's only been runnin things since what, 03? now he goin to the unit, whats his problem? Def Jam is known for not promoting its artists as much as other labels.

man he could still promote himself. just get on the radio or stop by 106. stop being lazy bascially. besides tha fact that LL is only releasing albums at this point to fulfil his contract and because he can. there is absolutely NO demand

LL, Nas, and Jay-Z are like the senior citizens of hip hop.... they haven't made good music since the 90s. They should make a retirement home for aging rap stars and put them there!

Papoose, Jae Millz, and Serious Jones are the future...
The future of what, Smack DVD's? Not one of them n*ggas is even close to putting out an album. Don't even say Pap. I like dude's music and mixtapes as much as anyone but Jive ain't putting that album out until 2008. They won't know how to push that. Look how they fu*ked up the Clipse.

LL should be the last artist to complain about promotion. His fanbase has kept him doing good numbers for years but I guess they are finally getting tired of his recycled bullshyt album after album. It never fails, whenever a artist makes a garbage-azz album and has poor sales or gets dropped by a label, the first thing they do is holla lack of promotion.
Word, I mean let's be real, how long can a rap artist really stay relevant. He's been in the game 20 years. That is unprecedented itself. How many rappers can say that and say that they are still somewhat relevant?

when we do good we give ourselves kudos, when we do bad we blame someone else. people need to take stock in themselves & don't depend on noone to handle there business. LL has given so many bs albums in the last 7 years he need to retire & now he's w/50 thinking his career will be energized. he need to look at the last 4 g-unit artist & think about going out on his own.

think before you reply
at you trying to son everyone like you know it all. Yes it costs money to market and promote, no sh*t. So are you just going to sit back and chill and just let the world come to you. 50 Cent marketed the hell out of himself. He didnt go however many times platinum because of Interscope staffers creating a buzz. He created that buzz. Kanye was signed but HE created his own buzz and marketed himself. HE paid for videos out of pocket. fu*k when Def Jam wasn't showing Juelz no love HE went and did his own video and got his buzz up. It also fu*king helped that them dudes had GOOD to GREAT records out. I can give you a list of artists that got their own buzz and hype going.

If LL is only getting 25-40 cents a record after 20 YEARS than he is a dumb a.ss businessman. Bottom line is that dude's music was wack that's why he didn't sell, plain and simple. And you mentioned that promotion and marketing department, then THAT'S who you blame for doing a poor job. Jay didn't go to college for a business degree. All this talk about Jay marketing himself. Those people came to HIM for that. Wouldn't you take the free promotion? They wanted to be a.ssociated with someone who was hot and well known. That's what businesses do. The music business is fu*ked, just have a hit single will get you nowhere (Chingy). You have to have that "It" that draws you to the masses unless you better get your tweasers ready for those wood plaques you gonna be hanging up. fu*k Timberlake and Beyonce can't even do huge numbers right now. Outkast went from Diamond to Wood. It would be interesting to see EM and 50 numbers if they dropped right now. Who would they blame when they second and third week numbers start looking like sh*t, Dre?
