Not really cause it's based off a number of things.
you dont kno the definition of trolling
its was my opinion
what do you think 55mil is worth iyo?
Jonny Storm... How much do you think your worth?
55 million really must be worth at least that, though grindtime wasn't yet a partner when some of those views happened obviously
It's based off a number of things drew. Subscribers... views... what ads are on the videos.
The only reason Pat vs. Ars is going up so fast on YouTube is because of WorldStar, I unno why but they just have the youtube version on their site so every view on world star is a view on Youtube
the gt channel gets a million views a month. thats what the top asian yt celebs get and they live off that shit, and live real nice. so basically drect, mad illz, and lush or at least the first 2 get a good sum of cash. whats so bad about paying a muthafucka. i dont think they should get paid as much, but giving each battle rapper 50$ isnt anything to frown about. i mean t-rex got between 5-7 stacks. so it is possible. and know battle rappers arent replaceable. ima watch a jonny storm battle a couple of times, im not watching hindurock at all. and theres 1,000s of consumers who feel the same way i do.. plus arsoanl steadily get gt a shitload of views. a guy getting ran over by a car will become viral fast and then stop. then ppl wanna watch a different viral cuz that 1 is old. a rap battle takes awhile to get old or never does. ive watched the old smack battles over 50 times in my lifetime. those videos get taken down a couple of times and still get a million views after they get put up. so yes battle rappers are worth it
On another note... the CEO's make that money. You think they are giving these divisions money lol.
ceos are def not giving anyone money
ok ill add in the miniscule companies that sponsor and the 48k subscribers
no more than 60k
Lets ask this... so why has no multi millionaire dropped money into a league? hmmmm cause it's a bad business move that makes no money!
exactly, and the fact mahfuckas tryna make a living off this shit is dumb
with exceptions to pete and ganik and few others who have some music shit goin
the greed is killing the game hardbody
I don't even think the average amount of views a battler gets on his battles should determine whether or not he gets paid a certain amount to go somewhere and battle. Some of these dudes ain't even that good and they're looked at like the hottest shit out.
I can't imagine what a battle like Iron Solomen vs. E Ness cost. Those 2 dudes aren't regulars on the battle scene and they're looked at as respected veterans who were coming out of semi-retirement to battle. You probably could have booked 2-3+ good battles with the money from that battle alone. But then again, I could be way off.
when signing a partnership youtube will still count the views you got before hand, especially when the video still gets tons of views
the average partnership is like 1 dollar per 1000 views
plus a couple cents per comment and not including what they make from the ad shit
laxin, what do you feel people like con and arsonal should be paid per battle?
IMO its the people that are paying the battlers fault, if people dishin out 8k for someone to write 3 rounds, then why not take advantage of that? not the battlers fault that someone is willing to spend that money
however this has opened the gate for future battle rappers to start demanding for money, and now everyone wants to get paid and no one wants to battle for the love of it since they see everyone getting money. people should get paid, but it should be based on how much money they are making the company.
cuz multi millionaires are only worried about tax write offs? and even bothering with a battle league based on youtube is ridiculous anyways
Only time your gonna see multi millionaires get involved is if it becomes Cable TV Type shit
dudes just need to realize that battling is probably the best way to promote their music career, but most of the battlers cant make music worth buying, they also need to realize 2 presidents are already in debt trying to do this shit so there is not a lot of money to be handed out
they tried to do it on cable tv a few times already, look how far that went...
the only reason freestyle fridays is still around is because its just a segment of an already existing program
You're right. At Grizzle if that battle never happened... you would of still gotten the same turn out and saved the money.
Which is exactly my point
Can't blame the battlers for accepting what the league owners want to offer
and you can only blame the owners for setting up in a way where everybody feels they deserve to get paid
Battling will never make a great amount of money for the owners anyways, whether or not its just paying for the flight + hotel or if you aren't paying for anything at all
you might stack a lil change over time but in reality you won't be making much
