    I'm not sure of how things work in the actual big leagues, but in the Draft I was offered to get into March Madness 2 free and I was happy enough with saving that $20. When I start getting more known in the battle rap community I can't see myself asking for anything more than travel fees.

    real shit! In general, rappers are divas. I've asked some rappers if they'd be interested in being apart of a compilation album, where the proceeds go straight to red cross, they asked to be paid. I don't have any respect for people like that.

    If you can make a league money then you should get money... if your not then you should not ask. There is nothing wrong with asking for travel costs.

    It's far from what people think. I don't even think that gets you 20 bucks.

    the more subscribers your channel has the more money you make off views

    andy milanakis said he had a video with 3mil views and was paid around 2k

    You seem to be some sort of youtube expert, please, try to share and explain to us us how much money has been generated from views, lets use GT as an example, 55 million views, how much money has been generated from that? clearly none of us know, so maybe you can provide some insight.

    I do understand what your saying. BUT this is where shit changes to me. When a rapper has put in a lot of work in the battle scene and is the main card, he should be compensated. If you look at it this way: if you took him off the main card, how many less tickets will you sell to the battle? how many less views will you generate from the event? how many potential fans will you miss out on? These "top tier" "diva" type guys are the reason why this thing was able to get off its feet, and the reason it continues to grow. You must be drunk saying these guys are replaceable, look at how many hundreds of battle rappers there are out there that nobody gives 2 fucks about...Can you think about how many potential fans iron solomon has brought to the hip hop scene? to the venue when he came back to battle? There is def a bigger picture to look at for some of these guys. On the other hand though, there is prob only 20-30 battle rappers who deserve to get paid for their battles. You should have to put in work and build up your name before you get paid for thsi shit. People like diz should be getting paid at this point. Fresco doesnt even get paid...some of these guys should be getting compensated for the fan base they bring to the table, point blank period. 95% of the battle rappers tho, no. They shouldnt be paid for doing something that can help gain them fans towards their careers.

    Haha, I feel where you're coming from, and I lightweight agree to an extent. But be honest, you were trolling these battle rappers a bit now, weren't you?

    I don't remember who brought this up first, but paying mcs a dividend from the revenue generated by their views sounds like a good idea, imo. It provides an incentive to put on better performances, it could potentially pay out for a long time, similar to royalties. But, Idk.

    ok, 55 million views from 1000+ battles. < lets get that straight. How much they make off that, I have no clue. Also, Has battling really gotten off the ground? Are these leagues making millions of dollars? Naw. Are they making 6 figures? Naw. Do these prez's have day time jobs? They sure do.

    With me saying battle rappers are replaceable... I believe that. Battles have turned into acting but without someone else writing the script. You have to remember your lines and work on delivery. You have to show up and perform. You can get anyone to do that. The way this thread is going it looks like people should get paid cause of their name and face. I'm saying they should be paid if they bring something to the table. In business... your not going to pay someone that can not make you money.

    Am I trolling? That depends. I'm trying to explain why "I THINK" they should NOT be paid if they can not bring in money. Is that out of line?

    So many people in this thread are so off base its legitimately retarded...The argument "They put in work so they should get paid" is a tired one. What good is a fanbase if those fans dont throw money into the pot? Brittney Spears has a fanbase too but they shell out 15 dollars a piece for a CD or digital download.

    Views = Nothing.

    You get it right? If you can bring in a million dollars then ask for a million dollars. If you bring in $100 bucks then why ask for a $1000. I don't get why this is hard to understand.
