    'Rap Money'


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    I purchased some songs of yours awhile back on iTunes and it got me thinking, 'how much of that money actually goes directly to Cashis?'

    In other words, is being a rapper a secure way to make money? Do you invest in other stuff?
    When someone buys your album how much of that money is going to you?

    Since Ramone ( Ca$his) is on a independen't label i'd say 90% of the money goes to him, and if he was on a major label probably not even 1% would go to him.

    Stat Quo spoke about it recently... according to him, iTunes takes 30% of it and the artist gets the rest.

    Yeah, its fucked up how the label take all the money from the artist. Tech Nine is the biggest example of how you can tell the labels to fuck off lol.

    Yeah... u get 70%. It's difficult to earn music wages. Honestly. Im just blessed. I thank God daily that I'm not in the financial strain that 90% of most other artists are in. Its a scary site. That's why I keep it real with my fans. And appreciate every cent spent on me
