In this episode of IllSide Radio, we interview the incomparable Wendy Day of the Rap Coalition, a not-for-profit artists’ rights advocacy group. Day is a veteran of the music industry, brokering deals for such luminaries as Cash Money, No Limit, Eminem and David Banner, just to name a few.
We go in depth with Wendy on the industry and what it takes to be a commercially successful artist. When is it right for a new artist to search for a major label deal? When should they be independent? What can an artist do to get leverage when signing a record label contract?
Day discusses 360 deals, the probability of Kreayshawn’s signing being what people think it is and much more, including how being anxious can put an artist in a situation that weakens their bargaining power. Did Webbie and Lil Boosie get a raw deal? We discuss this and so much more with Wendy on IllSide Radio.
So sit back, relax, and take a ride on the Ill Side.
