    Word jus as a artist in general. You gon want somebody to exclusively handle all the business calls, endorsement options, touring dates, industry bullshyt talk, people wanting features etc.

    As a artist you should jus focus on making hot tunes. Let your team handle the rest.

    As a group. You would think they'd be more proactive this year, and would have planned shyt.

    If you're making a project every 3 months/song every week you're not trying to make money lol. But I def agree with everything else you said.

    Rappers need managers because no one is a jack of all trades and it's best to delegate, especially to those who can do it better than you. Where rappers fukk up is having their homeboy manage them, thats like buying a car and letting your homeboy fix it when he never has before.

    OK thought you were being serious there for a second... Honestly I think a new project every 3 months is too much, but seems to be what I am seeing going on these days... and the demand from the fans seems to be there
