Meek Mill says he’s happy to be independent because he hardly made any coins from his last album, Expensive Pain.
“1 year Anniversary to the last album idk how money I made off it or had no control over the overall plan and I only made 13% off it lol. I’m a make 10m + off every album I drop from here on out,” he wrote.
“I was caught up in that slave sh-t that’s why I been taking long …… that sh-t still on this album! everything I do flames! they don’t really promote music with morals in that system … now it’s my go now ima crack the code on getting paid for rapping! #Expensivepain. Don’t show me plaques show me checks how much each song make ? shout to roc nation And @ninachanel pressed p on this.”
The album didn’t do too badly in the billboard charts, selling 95,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
Is receiving 13% a slave deal? And why did Meek sign such a poor deal in the first place?
