I swear if there's one NTer who's the champion for dumb ****** who actually think they got something of value to say, it's you. 

Keep it moving. Nothing of value comes from you anyhow.

Or

Nip can get booked a show at the Norva, draw in probably the same crowd and double what Meek and Wale made for the scope show and triple what Stalley made laugh.gif

Rockie Fresh a household name but he's not touching household money. MMG paying for his promo, videos, ect to get him out there where u think his show money going to?

Believe what u want. If Nip is smart, if his team smart, they'd stay away from a subsidiary deal and keep grinding until they strike a deal for their own imprint. Ownership

Lets be real, Rocky and School Boy didn't sell out the Norva what makes you think Nip can sell out the Norva? I also don't believe you when you say MMG came to the Scope and only 600-800 people showed up. Wale did a show at the Norva (1000 to 1300 cap) and he sold it out.

I'm pretty sure venues have to sell XYZ tickets before they even put on a show. So if MMG didn't meet the Scope's "reserve" i'm sure the show would have been canceled.

Nip's buzz is nowhere as close to Wale's.

If I recall that Rocky show was on a Tuesday b... A Tuesday. I never said Nip would sell out the Norva reading is fundamental laugh.gif. I clearly said 600 heads at least which by wale's standards would mean Nip's buzz is nowhere near someone managed by Roc Nation laugh.gif... Last but not least, the point I'm making financially the MMG deal doesn't benefit him, at all when he can take what he already and get his own imprint.

I'm done btw just gonna ride to these two new tracks and smokin.gif great this weekend y'all be blessed laugh.gif

This. If a label comes to the table with a deal that makes FINANCIAL sense for nip to sign then nip will have a record deal.

And everyone is saying how much being with mmg has benefited artists like wale stalley and meek mill buzz. But more buzz doesn't alwayz equal more $$$$ in your pockets.

like i said id be surprised if meek and wale make more $$$ than nip, regardless of their buzz. And id be amazed if "underground" artists like curren$y and mack miller weren't killing meek and wale financially, doin it all with no major label brand cosign.

lol i dont think anyone doesn't want nip to get more acclaim so they can feel exclusive listening to him... it jus doesn't make sense for additional acclaim to come with a paycut.
post #68 of 1317
I hate when I'm juiced for an artist to drop a mixtape or project and they start dropping tracks from it before it officially drops and while both tracks are dope IMO opinion I much more enjoy listening to a complete body of work the way the artist originally intended kinda sucks when a new tape drops and my music player has several tracks from said tape.. I almost always automatically skip those on first listen

they prolly didnt. But they wasnt making the same kinda bread doin they own thing that nipsey makes. So some artist need the machine behind them to make money (wale and meek) while others dont (nipsey's and mack miller's)

meek and wale gonna catch it on the back end. by that i mean they aint take a cut from signing with mmg but they're not making what they should at this point, based on their success/buzz/ numbers they've done.

Nip on his own cant expand his brand like that tho. ****** in the midwest not really rocking wit him like that. Like I said hes mostly known for his fountain of youth verse. That spitta/mac route ain't for everybody. If it was that easy everyone would do it. If nip could blow on his own n take his career to the next level im all for it, but hes been around this long and hasnt so

Why can't y'all just let son cook and do his thing? Dudes in here acting like they not going to listen to him unless he signs with someone.
Wasn't Ross also trying to sign Dom K? Son must of lowballing for neither of them to sign.

Would y'all rather wait for quality music or get some trash every week like alot of these other artist do?

Nip and mac miller should never be compared to each other.

Most people don't even know who nip hussle is

fwiw, i'm from LA, i wouldn't want him signing to MMG

this dude is about building something real, his own thing from the ground up

he knows it takes time, patience and hard work, hence The Marathon

 

i think he feels he doesn't have to sign a deal he doesn't want even if it means blowing up on the radio

he's still out there in the 60's, he's comfortable

 

 

he murked Life Long tho
