Noah DaKid Hayes's insight:

This is why downloading music is hurting the music industry. That is 675,000$ lost from musicians. But on his behalf he got them from free. He go caught doing it but for the time he done what he done, it was worth while.

Georgetown University Offers College Course On Jay-Z

Georgetown University Offers College Course On Jay-Z | Music Downloads | Scoop.it
Michael Eric Dyson parses Jay-Z's lyrics as if analyzing fine literature.
Noah DaKid Hayes's insight:

I honestly believe thats great for rap music. Just because you dont here about rappers having their own college courses . But then again i feel like people taking that class would think that its to easy.

Might be one of the craziest things i've ever heard a colege course to study and analyize the llyrics of Jay-z he is truly the pioneer of rap music and is showing us all that its more then just the music 

HunnitLeone Stokes's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:46 PM

I don't think a College Course needs to be created based off of Jay~Z. Yes he is Inspirational and a good role model to look up to, BUT! A whole class dedicated to him would be nice, but I just think they should just highlight his accomplishments and make him an example giving the important parts about his career. But a whole course is good and would be a nice gesture but wouldn't really be needed.

Illegal Music Downloading: Look At The Facts

Illegal Music Downloading: Look At The Facts | Music Downloads | Scoop.it
The music downloading phenomenon has spread throughout the world. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is extremely concerned about illegal downloading from the internet.

Via Jess Dickerman
Noah DaKid Hayes's insight:

At the end of the day, downloading music illegally is wrong. It decreases the sales of musicians work. So somebody that sales 500,000 copies a week can maybe get 1,000,000 instead of that.

This article goes in depth with the history of illegal downloading and how the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has had flawed attempts for punishing people for downloading content. They have tried to sue multiple people for ridiculous amounts of money and end up settling for mere hundreds which wouldn't even cover the cost of suing someone in the first place.

Jakob Null's curator insight, October 11, 2015 12:21 PM

This article talks about how the RIAA has fought against illegal music downloading and how it has affected CD sales in the music industry along with several methods the RIAA have taken to fight this problem.The RIAA blame music sales going down on illegal music downloading and I agree with this statement. Music is a very special thing and I believe that illegal music downloading has caused sales to go down.

Jayson Vargas's curator insight, October 14, 6:33 AM

The RIAA has been concerned over the repeated illegal downloads of albums from artists all over. Napster paved a way for people to share their files. Because of this, various platforms were formed that provided music or movies etc. to download illegally.

Noah DaKid Hayes's insight:

Like the tittle says, it will change music like never before just because anybody has smart phones theses days. And for people to get it for free, it something we love. Music for free thats legal. But then again i feel like its taking away from hip-hop more because in a few years compact disc just maybe obsolete.

Franklyn Perez's curator insight, January 18, 2014 7:20 PM

I think it's incredible that someone would invest about $200,000 in the sheer belief and faith in a particular artist to gain sales.

 

Pros: He was able to make that much money before he even officially released the album.

He was able to secure a good profit from his album, taking into the consideration the possibilty of losing money. Seeing as how its harder to make money with music now that the way of buying and listening to it has changed.

 

Cons: The fact that Samsung was the only buyer for those millions of copies, Jay-z was not eligible for those sales, in turn unclarifying the number of consumers of his product.

Dremond Bethel's curator insight, October 12, 2014 7:10 PM

Here, this article explains how Jay-Z gave away his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail through an app on Google Play store. It also explains how the evolution of apps may continue. Maybe artist and labels won't rely on stores, instead use Google Play store and sell apps.

Jay-Z Barely Owns the Nets and That Barely Matters | VICE United States | Music Downloads | Scoop.it
Despite owning the most hilariously small sliver of the Nets’ pizza pie, Jay-Z basically facilitated the Nets’ migration across from Jersey to Brooklyn.
Noah DaKid Hayes's insight:

I feel like just because he`s a rapper they dont want him to have a say so in the brooklyn nets at all. He brought a team to brookyn. The people would tell you that they wouldnt imagine that in years. But i guess scence he`s a rapper, and his history of word play, They wouldnt want that associated in The business no more.
