I believe it is hard to make it in the hiphop industry. But this is a credible source and is reliable information on finding out how to do it.The information can be found at www.vulture.com. Anyone looking to make it in the industry can look at this and learn something form it.

Christopher Jenkins's curator insight, September 17, 6:56 PM

I Honestly thought i would have a lot to say about this topic, But this Genre has become one of the worst Genre's to listen to. Half the time you cant even understand what they are saying, not to mention that every single song is basically talking about the same thing, they are just mixing words around and putting a different beat to it. Hip hop isn't what it used to be when Tupac, or Nas, Or Cannibus was around. They were able to rhyme about real life problems and how to better themselves so they can be successful In the career they have chosen. I wish hip hop would come back to its roots. 

 

 

In this new digital era of music consumption, brought about by streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, many hip-hop artists have rejected the traditional blueprint for releasing new music, which mimicked Hollywood’s rollout of a blockbuster film: a lavish, many-months-in-the-making marketing campaign, led by one or two radio-friendly singles designed to create maximum exposure for a record company’s big moneymaker, a proper studio album. Streaming is built on a song-based economy, though, and young MCs like Uzi are too savvy and restless to play by the old rules: They spray-hose new tracks when the mood strikes, and fans binge the content like couch-bound Netflix addicts inhaling new episodes of Black Mirror

Joshua Ming's curator insight, September 16, 2:35 PM

Streaming music is becoming a big thing today and social media like Facebook wants to be first in profiting from it. Bloomberg.com is a credible source for information. Its reliable because it talks specifically about why Facebook wants to own music rights from recording labels. This is key information for anyone who wants to start a record label and are worried about how their going to sell their music.

Christopher Jenkins's curator insight, September 17, 6:47 PM

Simply Outrageous. Facebook already has billions of dollars, First they copy Snapchat, Then they made it to where you can send money to each other like Venmo or Cashapp, and now they want to become Soundcloud or Itunes all in one? I know its business, but that is just simply greedy. I believe one day Facebook will take it too far and will completely Pummel to the ground. They are already stalking people, hacking in to their messages invading peoples privacy. 

 

 

Facebook Inc. is offering major record labels and music publishers hundreds of millions of dollars so the users of its social network can legally include songs in videos they upload, according to people familiar with the matter.

 

The posting and viewing of video on Facebook has exploded in recent years, and many of the videos feature music to which Facebook doesn’t have the rights. Under current law, rights holders must ask Facebook to take down videos with infringing material.
