Look artist, DJ’s, venue owners, managers, etc…. I came up in the game when respect was not compromised nor bought but it was earned. Artist in these days if yo ass can not create a fan base without a DJ; PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR CAREER! DJ’s if in fact you are taking $$$ from naive artist/managers you are setting yourself up for a possible ass whoopin! Venue Owners if you are charging acts to be on your stage you are guilty of extortion. Managers if you are charging your artist you to are setting yourself up for a possible ass whoopin! DJ’s crews my advice is simple if you have DJ’s thats willing to play a record support it getting poppin and then do a concert with that artist and do a split % at the door/tickets with artist. Also, Artist QUIT GIVING YOUR MUSIC AWAY!!!!! THE MIXTAPE GAME IS A BIG ASS LIE! YOU DON’T SEE COUNTRY, ROCK, TECHNO, JAZZ ARTIST GIVING MUSIC AWAY! Fuck FREE download sites! Build your own site, drive traffic to you and quit waiting on how many likes, tweets and post been made. BUILD YOUR FAN BASE!!!!! There are tons of colleges that play music that would love for you to visit the school. You are worrying bout the wrong SHIT!!!!! DO CLEAN MEANINGFUL COVERS! No Guns, No Weed, NO Naked Asses!!!! Do your RESEARCH and learn your history! Here is my album cover I did 2 years ago for me and I thank you ignorant ass negroes for encouraging TO SEE THE REASON WHY I HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!
