Managing Money in Hip Hop | A3C Hip Hop Festival

from a3cfestival.com >>>>

While making music is an art, making MONEY with music is a process. The key to having a career in music is understanding how money circulates within the music industry. If you’re not earning money, then it’s just a hobby! The artist, manager, producer, promoter, label, booking agent, distributor and merch dealer all have to get paid, but where does the money come from and how much should each person get? How does money get collected from billions of music consumers all over the world? Who writes those million dollar checks to Jay-Z? How can an artist have a #1 hit and still be broke? How do I demand payment for the work I’ve done? If you’ve ever wanted to ask questions like these about the inner workings of finance in the music industry, this is your chance to finally do it.

On October 12th, NARIP will be hosting a real discussion about money management and business professionalism in hip hop at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta, GA. Find out more info and buy your tickets @ http://www.a3cfestival.com/panel_page/narip-presents-financial-management-101

MC Lars on DIY Success & Making A Living In Music [video]

Your ultimate goal is to make a living with your music, right? Then listen to what MC Lars has to say.

via hypebot.com:

Since 2006, hip-hop artist MC Lars has been a poster boy for indie music success and the DIY work ethic. After a short-lived relationship with Terry McBride and the Canadian record label/management company Nettwerk five years ago, Lars formed his own label, Horris Records. Since then, he has taken his self-described “post-punk laptop rap” and delivered it to a target audience he calls the“iGeneration” — kids born between 1982 and 2000.

In the interview below, MC Lars reveals his approach to a DIY music career, making money as an indie musician, his advice for new artists, and much more.

Make A Website For Your Music::Watch It Make Money

Written by Michael Cash

What point is there in making music if no one is going to be able to hear it? Go beyond simply uploading your music to Myspace, or Last.fm and actually create a web site specifically for the music. This allows the web site to be tailored to the musician or the band’s needs.

Most who are not familiar with web site design assume that it takes a good deal of skills, but it does not. Using tools available on the web, it is easy for a novice web site designer to master the basics of creating a proper web layout for a musician’s website.
