Steve Stoute on 360 Deals, United Masters & NCAA Being Worse Than Music Business | Everyday Struggle

  • Publicado el 3 abr 2019
  • On Wednesday’s (April 3) episode of #EverydayStruggle, DJ Akademiks and Wayno are joined by famed music industry mogul, Steve Stoute. The EDS crew kick off the show updating its viewers with the latest news in Nipsey Hussle’s tragic murder case. The guys speak on the arrest of the suspect, Eric Holder, Lauren London’s heartbreaking Instagram post and Russell Westbrook’s historic performance in honor of the late Crenshaw rapper. Shortly after this, Ak, Wayno and Steve give their take on Lil Uzi Vert’s current label situation, and the leaked songs that were made available by hackers over weekend. Later in the episode, Steve Stoute discusses the benefits of partnering up with United Masters, his come up in the music industry, his new artist NLE Choppa, and why artists should stay away from 360 deals. Towards the end of the interview, Stoute gives Ak and Wayno an insight on his NCAA petition, and says the NCAA business is “worse than the record business.”

    United Masters doesn’t have a telephone number either and the website is not very informative on things such as registration to sound exchange, ascap, BMi (etc)

    I used to be in United masters it’s a tight service. They have a lot of dope features. I left because I felt like I didn’t own my stuff because they upload it for you. They also messed up my past SoundCloud songs. It felt like they own it.

    Women of color are essential parts and curators to Hip Hop & Business just the same as men. IF NOT MORE! Nadeska's job is NOT threatened by Ak in my mind! There is such a thing as "feminine touch." Without us, there is no you!

    Good interview. Label deals are messed up. Label gives artist an advance for what the artist owns and later takes it back from the artist % of the sales. Label keeps ownership of the artists product. deceptive fraud. these labels are savages lol. 'OWN THY OWN WORKS'

    Best Ep yet.. I love the informed prospective by Steve Stout. Hes educating these guys. It seems like Wayno and Ak expect managers to get rich off of one artist that hits big because he did his job - MANAGEMENT. Once they leave, and there's nothing else to manage, why would the manager still be getting paid? Managers and labels, if they're good, can accumulate a large client roster, and get paid off of many deals. The artist only have one money maker - themselves. So, if an artist is super talented, blows up, and makes a manager popular, should he get a piece of everything the manager gets paid by other artists on he manages, because he was the first major artist he signed? No.. That would be idiotic!

    If you flat broke and a label offers an artist 2mill and 50percent of the sales (JV deal) you take that deal but it depends on how long the label owns that %50 and how well they do with marketing/branding, the language gotta be right... that said you could start your own empire with that advance money if you flip it right
