    Lanstarr this thread is dumb as shit.
    If you can explain how to "make some donations to buy your way into a record deal" please do so...

    I heard of becoming a Publisher and paying artist like Jay-z or eminem to be on a couple of your tracks you wrote...yes...but "make some donations to buy your way into a record deal?"....for what???

    ... I wouldn't...lol....

    Fact is, if I had money, why the fuck would I be in this music shit? Fuck that, I'd be buying and selling real estate, I'd be starting StarBucks Franchises, openin barber shops and tattoo parlors...

    Fuck the love of music, 95% of the people who do this shit do it to pay bills first and foremost by now, not cuz they just love making music, it's too expensive to be a hobby for me...

    all independent labels basically "buy their way" into the business

    and if their label flopped they'd all be unsigned with no deal just like us here

    Kid484, If you don't love this, why do you do it? Theres alot of other shit thats easier and more stable that pays more with less headache. I don't think most people do this just to pay bills. Most people cuz they're good at it and they like. They're like, "if I can get paid to do what I love, why not try to roll in that route." I may be wrong, but I don't think there are too many people in the music industry with that "office worker" mentality of waking up everyday like, "I hate my fucking job... but I do have bills to pay so fuck it."

    Back to the topic:
    I would. If I knew someone who was like, "[name a rapper], i'll pay you $10,000 if you let sickVisionz get a spot on your CD" I'd be happy as hell for them to do that. Cuz deep down I know my shit is to the point where all I need now is to be heard by the right people. If heard, I feel like I could sell tracks to almost anyone. The pay off money wouldn't really be for a spot on someone's album, but just for a chance to get like a real deal sit down with a rapper and an A&R for a major record label. I feel like after that the music is gonna sell itself.

    Maybe you don’t understand how corporate America operates, the secret side. Not only in music, but in almost any industry. I'll let you figure that one out. Use your imagination . Or just ask Funk Flex.
