    That was very interesting… i really hope we have more posts on topics like this. 150 million is a very big investment. Makes sense for Jay for security and that Blank checc to do what he wants…even if he has to give Live Nation a Chunk of EVERYTHING for a Dime.

    The Myspace thing while a good business model, ultimately means that these record companies are going to be pushing their artists for those big hits, which will mean less freedom for newer artists ( less than they have now) So consumers of of music ( even if you dont buy the actual cd’s) our Advertiser revenue does. If you dont want 20 years of Soulja Boy’s and Mims etc. we need to really Boycott horrible music. These companies only care about Making Green and Staying in the Blacc. So whatever it is that we support they will force the artists to make.

    Man I hope that works out. Even though I respect J & MOST of BK rap right now, thinking about J making albums & touring until he’s about 50!!!!!!!! That’s something that really needs to be taken into consideration. I’m sure the shareholders are taking that into consideration as well.
