How did he sell millions of records on every def jam release and still owe 12 million?

:dahell:

Only think I can think of is that DMX was notorouous for wasting studio time and award show performances. That and his legal fees.

It's still amazing that even after all he grossed, he still owed after 5 albums.

They literally said “he had to pay nothing”. What you think he got for that?


What gets me is Jay never says nothing about things like this :patrice:


Fat Joe and Angie flying suppy's in a C130 to PR
Helping Lil Wayne with his taxes
this 12 Mill Debt thing


I dont have that type of discipline not to say something:hubie:

Oldest trick in the book: Labels charge all kinds of expenses against an artists budget, then say his album didn't recoup and has to pay them back through future royalties as a way to hold them hostage.

I love how these Behind The Scenes stories come out to raise Jay-Z's profile. :mjlol:

"He wouldn't want me to make this public, but..."

Because it's promo. Jay-Z is very shrewd.

This is the same guy that told Harry Belafonte that my presence is charity.

This stories leak for a reason.

Give me a name of an artist that Jay-Z competed with or had issues with. I'll give you an name that peace'd it up/signed to Roc Nation/started speaking well on his name. Even Killa Cam out here defending Jay-Z. And according to him; Jay was the biggest snake ever (pause :dame:) back in 07.

There's a lot to being in good with maybe the most powerful RAP artist in the industry.

Jay had rapper saying "fukk Colin Kaepernick" in public. He's plenty powerful.

That makes no sense

what makes him powerful

kanye got more money than him

Master P is way more respected it was said in the no limit doc thread


what makes him that powerful?

The negative news is always believed

the positve news is always said its a lie or someone made them say it


Drake is waaaaay more powerful as well as kanye in my view

prob because jayz knows how the ruff ryders really get down and didn't want those problems lol. Jayz does a lot for people today but it seems like when he was a rapper and ceo at Def Jam he didn't do as much for people. Except for those in his inner circle. Young guns were grammy-nominated and Jayz made them turn down a tour to do the roc the mic tour and give them like 600 a piece each a show. They could of made triple that on their own tour. Plus all the shyt he stole from state property in general including Chris's flow.

Why it's Jay that gave the young guns 600 dollars


When Dame and Biggs was there too


:russ:

For some reason people have this view of Jay in a chair peeling off 600 dollars each


Saying there you go dont spend it all in one place


So dame and biggs nowhere to be found huh


:mjlol:
