French Montana speaks with Nigel D. about deciding to sign with Bad Boy and being the first Bad Boy artist not to sign over his publishing. Did French Montana make the right move in your opinion?
publishing and touring , is the only way fro artist to eat. he made the right move not signing his publishing over .
what does his publishing mean??
good move french! don’t wanna see you mysteriously disappear like the other bad boy artist, you’ve been grinding for way to long for that to happen.
Publishing is how artist get payed every time their songs are played. Sometimes its split 50 50 between the label and the artist. Or the Label will buy your publishing from you. EXAMPLE
Diddy buys publishing from an artist and gives them 3million for it he now gets paid for every time that song gets played on tv on radio or anywhere in the world. BMI and ASCAP keep track of that.
Sometimes your publishing is worth shit because you get the 3million and your album sucks.
It all depends on what you negotiate
That’s why you STILL hear B.I.G.’s music all over.
yep.. its not always a bad deal to sign over your publishing, u might b garbage… so a quick 2mil would b good for u, other niggas not so much
puffy is poison. end of story.
He did well to keep his publishing but at the end of the day its still diddy. And as a business man diddy is shady as hell.
considering he already has a song in a Nike commercial, he was smart to keep his publishing. no matter how bad your album does getting cheques for the rest of your life is better then a quick 3 million. that you might spend a little more recklessly since it comes at the beginning of your career. Audio Two is a good example ; if they owned their publishing they would still be eating off top ballin
@backlash what badboy artist are u exatcly looking to hear from in 2012 ? those artist are temporary artists thats why they have temporary careers everybody isnt worth a 10 album deal some are good for just 1. i’m ok that i dont hear young joc he had a nice run but its over
@swiss163 cosign that whole statement artist will bash diddy publicly but when he buys your wack publishing for 3mil that artist dont say shit.
diddy knows what he’s doing wit these artist.
WHO CARE THIS NIGGA AINT GONNA BE SELLING HELLING ALBUMS NO WAY SO….
