The History of the Record Industry is Very interesting
It makes nothing but sense but until I read it, I never realized how the record industry worked. The structure of how everything went and how a few popular artists were the ones that kept the record companies afloat. It was very important for companies to have their popular artist or they would not sell. As I think about it, I can see how just about every popular label had their artist that kept them making money. In the nineties, Death Row Records had the rapper 2pac signed to their label. As soon as 2pac passed away their label fell by the wayside because they could no longer sell enough records to make up for the loss of money from their other less fortunate rappers. Motown records have seen their better days but now they are barely even heard of because of their lack of talent in their label. Other labels have had their success through their trailblazing artist and the list can be long for whom this applies too. The Music industry is the same way. It is quite interesting how this works. This class is very fun because it lets me look at things in a different light.
