because economicly it would not make sense????

you tell me you would spend your own money promoting your album if your only gonna make 25 cents a album?????

a low budjet video is 40,000

so say you put in your own money to pay for your video(which labels should do)
now you go gold sell 500,000 records

so then you earn 125,000 and thats before taxes take your share you gettign crumbs while you spent your own money to promote your album while your record label (executives, A&R's, production, etc) is getting just as much money as you and they basicly did nothing

you see how that makes no sense fo rthe rapper

and i just used a video example
you also got o pay for hotel and touring fees when you go on a promo tour and sh*t
you got to pay funk master flex to say "you cop your album righ tnow"
you got to take out raio station execs out to dinner and sh*t (you have to pay for everything) to have them play your record on thier readio station

its not so simple to be liek well why dotn these artist pay to market themselves cuz it wouldnt make sence to do so if your on a major label
like I said if an artist have to market themselves then that is a bad record company
why should the artist have to do all the work while the label just sit with thier thumbs up thier a.ss and get money off the artist hard labor and creativity without doing the jobs they was hired to do
nothing in today's world makes sense economically, so if other artists are promoting themselves why ll, they are spending their money that they made to promote their albums, for example, last year i went to indianapolis, for the black expo, and saw young jeezy posters everywhere, do you think jay-z was rolling was around in a van with jeezy posters and putting them on street lights and buildings, no jeezy has his street team, matter of fact i was trying to be down with his street team but you have to live in atlanta. so to further go against your argument, just by the sounds of it ll has no street team.

btw you are making it sound like LL is an up and coming artist. this n*gga is a legend and he has money off of records sales and movies so your argument is slowly losing weight like a obese bulimic.
