Getting Signed to a Major Label
Many people think the only way to make a living off music is to get signed to a major label. The advantages of being signed to a major label is better promotion and distribution, but the downside is these services are paid for by your record sales. Even the handful of popular musicians who do get signed to a major label and get a hot single or two find it hard to live off of record sales.
Something you probably didn’t know:
The profit from 500,000 units sold on a major label is equivalent to 8,000 independently.
So if your album goes gold on a major label, the average amount of profit is around $50,000! Of course that doesn’t count shows, sponsors, or publishing, but considering how long it took to get signed, make the album and promote the album, makes living off album sales an unrealistic expectation.

so like any bored man in america with internet access does when he has time to kill, i decided to take part in youtube surfing.Now keep in mind i was just surfing the tube not looking for anything in particular and i happened to run across a group of chicks called the 'twerk team' ...i started out watching these videos just kinda in disbelief because i thought most females wouldnt stoop to degrading themselves in such manner...i mean c'mon, how often have we had these talks about rap music degrading females and how rappers only use women to be seen and displayed as objects and yada yada yada...but apparently after watching these videos, its clear to see the females threw all that out the window! hell i aint bout to post them all because this aint no booty site, but hopefully you'll get the picture. iSupport the Twerk Team!
