Paying For Music Again!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Music

I’ve posted at least a couple of times before regarding the current payment structure for most media, and how I see the current model as being largely outdated.

Very glad to hear that Nas recently signed to Def Jam records and thereby ended the long-time feud with CEO Jay-Z (a good lesson for younger hot headed wannabe gangsta rappers!). His latest album – Hip Hop Is Dead – has stirred just as much controversy as the move. He is notorious for hating most […]
