if u start selling copies of doctors advocate it's bootlegging.

if you sell a cd with various artist songs it's bootlegging.

most mixtapes are bootlegs unless authorized by the artist.

gangsta grillz are not bootlegs, because the labels and artist are involved in the process

That "FOR PROMO USE ONLY" sticker ain't fooling nobody. That's like me selling dime bags with free weed in it. The contents is still illegal and I'm still getting charged.

yeah....and you tell me what artist wouldn't wanna be on that mixtape? I think what it is comin at is how the artist gives tracks to dj's....the company heads came together and said no, these are not yours to give out. They want in on our mixtapes too, they say its like a billion dollar business...they are trying to send a message.Yungblackgifted2 (12:56:05 AM): they want in....a nickel bag get sold in the park, they want in....a mixtape gets sold on the corner, they want in

How i feel about the situation...had to borrow it, im not typin it over

Wow This Is Sad Its There Mixtapes

U Can Get Arrested For Selling Ur Own sh*t

WTF Thats There Music
I think you have to have the record companys permission to use the track on the mixtape....not the artist...but then they gonna have to start arresting every fu*kin dj around...Ti better bail them dudes out...the cops want dudes to go back to doing some violent sh*t to get paid instead of trying to do this rap thing...

Believe it or not if you sign a deal with J Records, you are not supposed to be hustling another project on the side. That is a serious breach of contract. Anything (musical) that artist does while signed to that label, has to be directly approved by the label. Not just that, managers also have to get a cut. If these people aren't getting paid, and your dumb a.ss is on the front of a Gangsta Grillz CD, you are going to get got by the label... However, I don't believe that it is illeagal.

I think the reason they are being arrested is because some of their CD's have the hottest new singles mixed together...or R&B jams or whatever... Even if the artist leaks you that material, it is illeagal to sell for profit without proper liscensing. It always has been.

What you guys should be hoping for is that since they got bread, they can get good lawyers.

I don't know if any of you are old enough to remeber this but Luke went to war with the music industry suits back in the early nineties.

This looks like, with the right backing, could be another situation like that.

Either way it goes, you all should find a way to support the efforts because this was our only way to make a buck off of the industry that has gotten rich off of our style. The way they did it is criminal too. They have r*ped us with these contracts for years.

When it is your time to be heard, stand up and scream at the top of your lungs.

Hate to make this a race issue but white people are hilarious. Solve SOME REAL CRIME!
Don't be ignorant. God, people will do and say anything to make something a race issue. Believe it or not, not every cop or task force agent in Atlanta is white. Stop living in the 1950's.

That means all the upcoming artists that sent their sh*t to Drama to work on and paid their cash, is sh*t out of luck! They seized all studio equipment and CD's and are going to destroy of all it.
