Minister Louis Farrakhan meets with the leadership of the Detroit Hip-Hop Community

On August 24th, 2015 the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan visited Detroit to speak with the leaders of the Hip-Hop community. The Minister spoke on unity, as well as the importance of protecting our women not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally. Mr. Farrakhan said that the message he delivered to the people in that room was special because it was not written it came from the heart. He also went on to call the Detroit Artists in that room the most important people in his life right now. You could feel the power in that room from wall to wall. In my personal experience It was as if we got to meet not only the Minister, but Elijah, Malcolm and Dr. Martin in one. Many may not agree with the views expressed by Mr. Farrakhan, but for Black Men who grew up with out fathers in the streets of Detroit, we say IF NOT THE MINISTER THAN WHO? I'll leave it at that! Some of the Artist present were Seven the General, Ice Wear Vezzo, Trick Trick, B Down the Boss, Nick Speed, MU, Supa Emcee, Kash Doll, and many other Very Important Detroit Media Outlets.

The Independent Music Business

#SevAdvice.... In All actuality anyone who writes produces and records songs is in the Music Business.... However the Industry is a different thing! The industry is controlled by 4 major labels EMI, Universal Music Group, Sony BMG & Warner Music group! They have controlled the market share for years based on their ability to distribute physical albums! 

If signed the Artist is responsible for all unsold product which the record store gets to hold your money  for a year as they SEE if your ish gone sell at a Target in Boise Idaho where you spent no promotion $ smh! They send ALL unsold albums back at full price which comes out the artist money! 

So let's say, they say, Wayne shipped Platinum today... Well if after a year Wayne don't sell all those albums in Boise and 100,000 come back at full price, he didn't actually GO platinum... He SHIPPED platinum... Now he wants to see the books right? In this new industry, those distributors are obsolete a lot of new artist aren't signed, this is why they give away music free.. They live off shows and merch! We spend thousands of dollars on music only to sell it for $.99! You need a million fans to make a mill ... Fug that, I'm a hustler, I concentrate on a small portion off the whole, attack it until it totally submits, then move on to the next quarter and before you know it you got it Half beat! 

Moral of the story? ..., Know the Business, Own Your Shit, Invest in Self ... Keep your eyes on your on paper...
