      To follow up, there was a time, an extended time, a recent time, even black artists were screwed out of money left and right. I talked to someone who was in the business back then, tonight, and he said, quite emotionally, that he never thought he’d see this day.Report

        The music industry screwed every artist out of money. That was pretty much their business model. It wouldn’t surprise me if blacks had it even worse so on that front good for them. But after the first few hundred million dollars i stop counting.Report

        Certainly the business screwed everyone. And I don’t mean to imply that you should care. But for fans, it’s kinda awesome.Report
