Let this be a lesson to all the hard working hip hop producers out there... BE ON YA GUARD !
Always, always, ALWAYS have a music business attorney overlook any and all agreements that you are considering to sign. It's a shady business, in a crooked world... and the only person who is looking out for your best interests is YOU!!! To the producers/taste makers of the future, stay up!
