21 Savage Making Money
21 Savage wants to make sure he is making the most money out of his music that he can get, and can you really blame him?
Savage is amongst one of the few rappers that own their masters, meaning he has full ownership rights to his master recordings, and unlike most rappers, he makes more bank from albums rather than touring.
He goes into more detail while featuring on “Million Dollaz Worth Of Game” podcast with Wallo and Gillie Da King.
Here he goes into a deeper explanation, explaining the deal he made with his current label Epic Records 4 years ago in 2017.
“I had a platinum album before I signed my first deal. I own my master’s right now. Every song you’ve ever heard me on, I own it.”
“I got a 70/30 split with my label. I get 70, they get 30. I make more money off my album sales than I do off touring. A lot of rappers, most of their money comes from touring.”
“It was just seeing sh*t, watching interviews, watching ni**as speak on how they can’t get their music in this movie because of somebody else on it.”
He then explains the importance of getting your master, because he has watched many fellow artists sign certain unessacary deals because of the amount of control they had.
“I waited ’til I had enough leverage to go in there and say, ‘Ay, I want this much money for this album. I’m giving y’all this much and I’m keeping all this.’”
Savage featuring on the podcast may have helped aspiring rappers or rappers who have already made it big. Make the right money moves.
