Come on now people honestly...Did we really think Hurrican Chris was gone do big numbers? No...not really. Only reason he's gettin bread is cuz of them damn "ay bay bay" ringtones. Which is why his label prolly even signed him. Just like most of these nursery rhyme, commercial rappers are even getting deals these days. The money they make off ringtones can sometimes outweigh the revenue from album sales depending on how good the single is and how sh*tty the album is.


Last I heard... Record companies were in a legal battle to get more money (if any at all) from ringtones.


Ringtones are new basically... so, there was no concrete legislation on how those revenues are to be split. So, i don't think labels really benefit from ringtone sales (not directly anyway).

Profits From Ringtones Should Go To The Owner Of The Music. If The Label Has The Rights Then They Should Already Have A Deal In Place With The Artist. On Another Note Soulja Boy Made Himself Look Bad In That Youtube Vid. Nothin Wrong With The 300 (hell I Own A Magnum) But That Really Wasnt Anything To Be Going On About

if soulja boy sold 234k, than that mean that there's 234k people who shouldn't be walking this earth right now. They're probably lil kids, that's where the music industry has gone, can't sell to intellectuals, sell to a 2 year old. Hip Hop 2007<<<<Hip Hop Ever

If you do remember... ringtones didn't always sound like the exact music you heard on the radio. I can't remember the technical names (polyphonic or sumthin plus there were 2 other kinds of ringtones).

Eventho they sounded like the music from the artist... the way the tones were made weren't considered to be rebroadcasts of the actual song(s)... therefor that legal loop hole allowed the companies that made the ringtone to not pay the labels.... there were other loopholes as well...

Im not surprised at LBs numbers cause the getback wasn't at circuit city or best buy target fye or anywhere I went to try to cop it at the only way I could get it was to order it online.

THATS VERY TRUE. THATS A HARD ONE TO ARGUE TOO. HOWEVER MUSIC TONES NOW ARE THE ACTUAL SONGS SO NOW THE GAME IS DIFFERENT. MUSIC IS CONSIDERED INTELLECTUAL MATERIAL (NO MATTER HOW DUMB SOMEONE MIGHT THINK A SONG IS) & COPYRIGHTED. THEREFORE A COMPANY CANT JUST TAKE CLIPS OF SOMEONE ELESE PROPERTY & SELL IT FOR PROFIT WITHOUT COMPENSATION FOR THE OWNER. POLYPHONIC RINGTONES WERE DIFFERENT TO A CERTAIN DEGREE & I CANT TRULY SAY IF THEY SHOULDVE PAID FOR THEM OR NOT
