I was just wondering because that small brain huey dumbass started beefing with Nelly because he charged 350k for a track, but he wanted him to do it for free image , but what price range do you think some rappers have? Which is the highest and which is the lowest?

I would have to say Jay-z is the highest.

nah man it would have to be Kevin Ferdline lmao, but many people think that other rappers will simply rap for free for some new rapper, nah they still have to eat too, only when you form a great friendship with many of them OR your on a major label where the artists would do it whatever, like Def jam. But when nelly said 350k for a track, I was like "n*gga this ain't 2003, Nellyville is over" but still Nelly has to eat and Universal wouldn't let him do some sh*t like that

There aint no money in making music. I am sick of people getting caught up in the image. People see these nice cars, big houses, big jewlery, in videos and think that artist really live like that. ITS ALL A SHAM! All that sh*t is rented. Artist get like 10 to 25 cents when a cd is sold IF EVEN THAT! You gotta sell a hell of a lot of records to make real money. because there are a fu*kload of rappers and musicians out there who have the idea that you can get paid hella quick by making music and it is all a lie.

It depends.. If you dont know the rapper and you are looking for a come-up.. they are going to hit u for everything, but ususal labels have deals worked out. Example if i was signed to a major and i wanted lets say T.I. on a song, they would ask for a reduced payment for a feat from a artist on my label

Yep, the only REAL money you can get is touring, but I hate it when people do that sh*t, they rent all that sh*t and it ain't them, you have to be true to yourself, you don't need all that sh*t to make a video hot, plus for me personally I would feel poor as fu*k when I'm renting all that sh*t and I have to return it. I would just be me and not worry about that material sh*t.

I think if Nelly told him 350K because he just didnt want to do it and that was his way of pushin slim off. Swizz said the same thing in an old interview that somebody wanted a beat from him who he didnt want to work with. He threw out 175K but the person paid him they really wanted the track. I think the price goes up and down just like when artist does shows if your hot you get more if your not then take what you can get. Nelly's not that hot right now I doubt TI paid him 350K for the song they did.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was just 20 dollars lol, MC Hammer fu*ked up his own career, giving money to people who didn't give a fu*k about him and when he went broke, all those fake friends said "See Ya Hammer!"
