Default How Do Rappers Get Paid?

I always wondered how do rappers get paid. Can somebody tell me? If their albums don't sell, i heard that they have to pay back the record company the advance money that the company gives them. I know rappers get paid from doing concerts. I wanna give thanks to good rappers from the 80's and 90's that's still doing music now even though i think the music they're doing now isn't good but that shows me that they have love for the music and they don't care about the money.

Rappers that don't care about money are liars.

A lot of artists don't receive royalties. Bad contracts.

TOURING and PUBLISHING annnnd any MERCH sales done in-house (shirts , stickers , hats , mixtapes)


"I know who I be god ... FIRST LIGHT PUBLISHING" - you know who
