Lil Poopy, 13, lands a four-year Sony-Epic record deal

Lil Poopy, 13, lands a four-year Sony-Epic record deal | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
He may just be 13-year-old but Lil Poopy - the pint-sized rapper famous for singing about hoes and cocaine aged just nine, has landed his first record deal.

Lil Poopy, whose real name Luis Rivera Jr., has signed a four-year deal with Sony-Epic label which boasts big name artists such as Outkast, Timbaland, P. Diddy and Jennifer Lopez.

The young rap sensation gained notoriety aged nine when he appeared in a music video where he called himself a 'cocaine cowboy' as he rapped about money, hoes and kissed fistfuls of cash.

Its okay to be signed at 13, but to be signed for rapping about drugs is not acceptable. We living in times where this is okay to do. Just to show the younger generation is also lost. Sony signing little boys who have yet to hit puberty rapping about money, cars, clothes and hoes. A disappointment in today's world and music. Music now a days is not the same it was 10 years ago, even 5 years ago.

Steve Miller: This Whole Industry Is F--kin' Gangsters and Crooks

Steve Miller: This Whole Industry Is F--kin' Gangsters and Crooks | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Steve Miller's gripes against the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — for which the rocker was inducted Friday night — extended past the podium into the backstage area later that night. "The whole process is unpleasant," Miller told reporters. "The whole process needs to be changed from the top to the bottom." Talking to Rolling Stone, Miller widened his targets, throwing barbs not just at the Rock Hall — though there were many choice words about that — but at his record label rep ("I wanted to pull him by his necktie and kick him in the nuts") and the industry in general.
Pierre Priot's insight:
I don't see anything wrong about Steve Miller's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame speech.

Being in a money-making industry doesn't mean you are making money. In this interview, Steve Miller shows the negative view in the recording industry. After reading this, now I think being careful about the 'theives' in the industry is as inportant as to work hard.

There’s an endless debate about whether file sharing is “stealing.” We eventually shouldn’t “pirate” files, but it’s premature to condemn people who do it today when those same people are not paid for their participation in very lucrative network...

Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered.

Letter to Emily White at NPR All Songs Considered. | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"Recently Emily White, an intern at NPR All Songs Considered and GM of what appears to be her college radio station, wrote a post on the NPR blog in which she acknowledged that while she had 11,000 songs in her music library, she’s only paid for 15 CDs in her life. Our intention is not to embarrass or shame her. We believe young people like Emily White who are fully engaged in the music scene are the artist’s biggest allies. We also believe–for reasons we’ll get into–that she has been been badly misinformed by the Free Culture movement. We only ask the opportunity to present a countervailing viewpoint."

Joseph Martino's curator insight, October 16, 2016 4:05 AM

Just like everything else he gets near, Trump's association with it becomes square one of the next big controversy. The ethical alignment of courtesy and respect gets thrown under the bus each time he makes a move. The writers of songs protected by BMI make one of the hugest statements possible by getting him to cease and desist with any further unauthorized use of their work.

Digital Music News - People for the Ethical Treatment of Musicians (PETm). Who's In? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The idea comes from Projekt Records founder Sam Rosenthal, an indie disillusioned with a system that seems completely stacked against artist interests. "Talking with my sister about the issues surrounding fair compensation for musicians, the phrase 'People for the Ethical Treatment of Musicians' popped out of my mouth! I loved it. I wrote it down. I created a graphic...."
