    Ahki Funkworm….gr8 piece! Alot of what is out here as far as the business goes is made up. Same formulas that worked in 90’s can work today if labels would do the work and if younger brands simply apply the formula and did the work rather than shortcut it. Yes, it takes money to make money, and today, it is a bit more difficult to successfully break a record in a short period of time since today’s distribution network is so expansive and diluted with ineffective media and music distribution networks.

    Why so stoic, Yung Manboobs?

  • This is a damn good interview. JD keeps catching heat from bloggers but he’s always been smart about the business. He’s been around for way too long for him to be written off.

    Seriously, it also takes a lot of courage, determination and understanding aside from money to remain on top..
