    Brooklyn Academy - 400 or so each person....block mccloud charged me like 100 or something for a hook


    Beats from BeatButcha was like 400dollars for 5 or something.....

    Well he probably bought some weed, coke and fucked a girl. One would assume it was a good deal for him.

    In fairness Wayne, T-Pain and Drake are better at writing a pop hook than most people. Plus they're worth it from an audience perspective as people said.

    I think Gucci Mayne did 180+ guest spots in 2009. I'm guessing he was doing a lot of them for nothing just because he wanted to break through by being on the most tracks humanly possible. Of course if you've no audience then he's not going to be interested.

    Different rates based on current/past success and fame. Yukmouth is like $1500, Biz from D12 is like $700.

    It's easy to have features, you just need to be willing to pay the artist(s).


    I don't think you can just pay a current successful artist like Rihanna 20K+ and she's on your song. It don't work like that. There's terms & conditions made as to how you use the Vocals with the Record Label/Company.

    would it have been different tho??


    Would I have paid to have him served....goto to NY or have him come to CA and take him to court over a grand?? would I really go thru all that hassle?? I dont think so bruv lmao


    It was 3yrs ago at least 07 even I think....

    I took a risk coz I had done good business with the people who put me in contact with him in the first....it didnt work out....


    I still aint finished the mixtape...got nuff tracks recorded (one with PH that is absolute flames imo) that people will probably never hear....Ness just did me an Amazing Chorus for a track Im finishing....


    But my dreams of being a rapper and famous are over...I do it for fun and myself now...


    I realized that everyone was paying for features and it was no longer worth it....I thought it would help me 'sell' copies lmao what a dumbyoungass I was lmao
