YOU AINT FIRST NIKKA SHUT IT UP .. LOL VERY INTERESTING
? ? ? ?
meh, none of those 3 wouldn’t be anyone if the record companies didn’t pushed their crap music on the public in the 1st place. so now they are just making money off of their names. if you went their way as new artist you wouldn’t get that kind of deal, because no one knows you.
QUERTY,why would they give that deal to a unknown artiste,when they are trying to make money off an artiste’s name and recognition?
The info given was interesting. I’m thinking the Myspace way will probably be the best bet for up and comers and niche hip hop acts not commercial or pop artist like Jay or 50.
But we shall see as I believe Cab said in the 5 heartbeats!
jay-z is dumb i couldnt do that,150 mil is good but he could make that within 10 years,and within those 10 years they gettin a percentage of everything he make?nah dats crazy
Tommy… you’re very perceptive! Sorry to say but Jigga is big businesses portal to you hood dudes who think he stands for y’all!
But he cakin so it don’t matter what happens, he at half a billi (like that helps his fans out, where did his half a billi come from? Probably your strugglin azz!…lmao)
i can definately see myspace giving itunes stiff competition, major labels are obsolete and will now be used for mass marketing probably just artist development, putting albums together and putting out videos, but the real entity for profit isnt with the major label it’s with going digital. Myspace is goanna be around for a long time. Never really heard much about live nation… I think they will be more silent of a company and push the artist as a namebrand in it self.
Yeah Jay is dumb that’s why he has made so many dumb moves in the industry that have made him one of the most successful and richest rapartist of all time. I’m sure Jay once again knows what he’s doing.
I wonder how Rocafella the label is affected by this. is it all leverage for Jay-Z on marketing artists or do they have a hand in it(Live Nation), or is this just Jay-Z’s music solely and this deal along with his other ventures finance Rocafella’s budgets, or does Jay still have a distribution deal with Def Jam but he’s not President anymore?
That actually is an amazing deal! This would be because of them that he’s even able to make what he’s about to make. It’s basically like a middle man/agent allowing you to sign to a team. They get they PC for this alloted period and your potential for revenue is increased that much more. Like you get that signing bonus and your salary but then endorsements too. Them Jay-Z T-shirts and posters and all that gonna go berserk! Funny too cuz I was just thinking about this topic “future of music” morning. I had a thought about somebody saying “Hey, you remember music?” and another person looking at em with a blank expression like no. LOL Shit is slowly slipping awawy.
after his next album HIS defjam obligations are done. but if u read the live nation deal, he gets about 25 mill for signings or artist development or sumthing like that so he got sum money to spend on a kanye because that will flip a profit come tour season again, which live nation will probably sponsor.
i dont what u talkin that deal looks sweet to me, the 10yrs only refers to 3 albums in a 10yr span, he could drop 3 albums in 3yrs and his album obligation would be complete. that money is for lil hov, or lil beyonce whoever comes first. thats a lucky fucking kid right there
and how did this nigga manage to pull of a secret wedding, nowadays aint shit secret in this world and i havent seen any leaked photos or reports or nothing. good job, keepin them vultures out ya biz
OK HERES THE DEALLLLL
jay z sign this deal with Live Nation to put forth his own major label called Roc Nation!! he only used Live Nation for his start up money (150 mill). Now of course the catch is, Live Nation makes a percentage of everything jay z sells…but on the other hand, Jay z will make a percentage of everything his artist sell on the label (Roc Nation). Therefore Live Nation is making money of Jay Z. But Jay Z will be making money of a whole bunch of artists at the same time. In the end, Jay z Will win, because Live Nation is giving him a Blank Check to fund his new label.
numba 7 u fuckin idiot nigga !! yeah you couldn’t do that cuz you stupid. fuckin faggot yo i swear to god i love wen ignorant people talk shit. jay z is the standard. all the other stupid gotta do is follow wat he doin. they probably wont cuz they retarded. lol!!!!!!!!
just checked out livenation.com, its all about buying tickets so far,
damn why yall so damn dumb?just read the fucking post dumbass’s
For those that don’t really understand why this is a great move for ALL artists (in general). Then use the link provided (below), and read an article, via CNN…that I ran across last year (Nov. 2007), about “Live Nation”
This article is called “Live Nation rocks the Music Industry.”
Anywayz, this (two page) article should BREAK IT ALL DOWN for you katz (a bit clearer), for those who ain’t knowin’ wassup, ya’ dig.
so what Live Nation gets a percentage… somebody is always gonna get a percentage. Def Jam got a percentage. The government takes a percentage if your 300 dollars a week.
