Industry rule number four-thousand-and-eighty;
Record company people are shady
-A Tribe Called Quest
This week: The Spotify IPO. What does it mean for music? Also, we ask why shady label deals are making a return in 2018? We look at Lil’ Pump’s audaciously front-loaded record contract. With all of the data, and insight, why are more artists not taking the Chance the Rapper route and going to sign deals with crappy advances? Also, we talk about new music from The Weeknd, Towkio and Sons of Kemet.
