Just Blaze Recreates “Higher,” Explains The Business Of Beats To The Wall Street Journal

04.10.13 5 years ago 4 Comments

Just Blaze is one of the most insightful personalities we have and whenever he has something to say, the people have to pay attention. In addition to his recent appearance on The Combat Jack Show, his latest gem is an interview with The Wall Street Journal (it doesn’t get more official than that).

At the end of the day being a celebrity is nothing more than a lucrative business and a lot of artists don’t take that into account. Brand maintenance and craft are only half the battle, according to Just Blaze. Investments, accounting, and copyrights are just as important, if not moreso, so that the artist ensures that they’ll have sufficient funds long after their musical days are over.

Rappers, pay attention since these are behind-the-scenes elements that are often overlooked, but prove costly down the line. Put money in your retirement accounts, and don’t forget to pay your taxes by next week.
