Do venues you rent express concern about a higher risk of violence because it's a rap concert?

Asked by Timmo about 3 years ago

Really, the whole violence is all cliche. I mean we do have incidents, but nothing to extreme. It really all depends on were and who you have, for example New York has a Hip Hop Police, if you bring a list of certin artist to town you have to notify these authorites in advance. This doesnt go without saying we don't have incidents, but real " Violence " Is rare.

How does the cost breakdown work for big acts? Like if it's reported that an artist got $100K to perform at a venue in a major city, how much of that does the artist pocket, how much goes to agents, managers, crew, etc?

Asked by Palous about 3 years ago

The artist get's a flat rate, let's say I bring Drake. It'd cost me 250k just to get drake to preform, at that point the club owner is just happy with the fact I got Drake preforming at his club and makes me pay nothing on the Venue. Drake get's a for sure lump sum, The owner gets bar business, I catch the door money.

Mixtapes? Sorta, alot of online promotion really is the only suggestion I can give you. Along with paying more established artist for features. It's all about who you know, and money certinally talks in a industry all about money.
