    Tip had the vision but those record labels usually don't. They always gotta be pushed.

    Record labels really don’t know what they doing. They want artists already developed with dozens to hundreds of thousands of followers on social media before they even try to sign you now :unimpressed:

    Nowadays they want the artist to come with their own following so they can just leech off of it. Doesn't surprise me that they didn't see anything but numbers and not blatant starpower.

    Too bad being a thot (and thot shyt) is more important than actual hip hop to Meg :francis:

    I saw that Houston cypher she had in like 2017-2018 in twitter and I couldn’t understand why she wasn’t major then.

    Labels don’t want to develop talent anymore.

    For them, that takes too much time and money. They want to push someone out who already has a following, so that they can do less work and reap more of the benefits. It's like a hustle for the record companies now. The goal is to invest less, and pull out more bread.

    or it shows the limited views he have about people we think we know

    tribe has credited NWA as being an inspiration for them. this isn't really out of place at all.

    Ma$e signed Fivio Foreign for 5 racks to a production deal that led to his Columbia deal

    U saying Q-Tip ain’t rich enough and don’t have enough connects to sign Meg to some type of deal and get her to a major :patrice:
