What Happens When You Sign a Music Contract?
On this episode, I respond to a video by BET (Black Entertainment Television), titled "What happens when you sign a Music Contract? | Rules to this Sh!t". The videos made by the big media networks such as BET and Complex are often times very misleading because they only give you one side to the equation. Record labels are always targeted as being predatory, when people talk about the music business, yet no one ever discusses musicians who use predatory tactics to get over on investors. I believe the video is also one sided because BET only covers the negative aspects of what happens when you sign a record contract instead of shedding light on all the positive situations that signing a record contract can lead you to. The video is also hypocritical because BET literally tell you "Don't Sign Your Life Away" in the video, yet, they're only asking artists who have signed major recording contracts. I think BET is full of sh*t and I don't want anyone to be mislead by the misinformation that their network spreads. Signing a music contract can come with many benefits. You also have to take in consideration what you will be giving in exchange for having a business partner. I give my honest response to the video. What do you think about signing a music contract?
