6ix9ine Says He Fired His Entire Team & Cancelled His Tour

Well, this can be a somewhat odd flip. Tekashi 6ix9ine has been closely selling his upcoming mission on social media, teasing options from A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Lil Baby, and extra. Dummy Boy will likely be launched subsequent week but it surely looks like 6ix9ine is making an attempt to provoke a contemporary begin earlier than then. With all of the authorized drama he is been concerned in, we do not essentially blame him however this appears somewhat excessive.

In a video the place he seems to be more and more stressed, Tekashi spoke to the digital camera and revealed that his complete American tour has been cancelled. He was initially speculated to carry out in Austin, Texas tonight however he notes that he won’t be current on the present. Instead, he is working instantly with the promoter to carry out on a special date. That’s probably not what’s regarding although. 6ix9ine additionally admitted that he fired his complete staff, together with his reserving agent, managers, publishers, and extra. The man who used to characterize Treyway regularly in his music is probably not screaming his title any longer. If he isn’t capping, which means 6ix9ine is doing issues all on his personal now, with completely no assist.

At this level, he is already established himself as a hitmaker. It will likely be fascinating to see the place this leads him as he has a mixtape releasing in just some days.

Omarosa Secretly Taped Donald Trump During Her White House Stint: Report

Omarosa Manigault may not seem all too relevant to you, past the point discussion in 2004 when she co-starred on The Apprentice. She probably doesn’t even elicit a tender response from her godchildren for all we know. She is however, one hell a sleuth and a hell an opportunist. Sources say Omarosa shared secretely recorded audio Trump in the oval fice to a gathering friends, but most importantly to publishers whom she hopes will snap up her tell-all manuscript, suggestively titled UNHINGED.

The secret audio is said to have been recorded during her one-year stint in the President Trump administration. Omarosa was forced to resign from her “public engagement” role on December 13, 2017, though she states and record that she left on her own volition. Those who have witnessed a portion the recordings say the voice conversing with Manigault is that President Trump. There is no word as yet, whether she recorded the audio within the bounds the law. Generally speaking, you can only record a person using a mobile phone under laws abdicating “one-party consent.”

Omarosa’s book UNHINGED will likely touch on much more than just the voice recordings, considering their relationship goes back nearly 15 years. In all likelihood, the tell-all book won’t have any effect on Trump’s public perception, Omarosa is simply feeding coins into her fading public image. Would you read UNHINGED?

The Latest Ranking of Music Publisher Gold & Platinum Certifications

Who are the largest, most powerful music publishers?  That’s a complicated calculation.  But here’s an April certification ranking from the NMPA.

As its name implies, the National Music Publishers Association (NMPA) is a trade group for music publishers, specifically in the U.S.  Accordingly, the NMPA tallies lots data like sales and certifications for its members, among other roles.

Of course, the RIAA also tallies album sales, downloads, and streams on the recorded side.  But there’s a direct connection back to publishers, who score mechanical licenses on all those formats.  As part a separate publisher ranking, the NMPA verifies the songwriters with their respective music publishers to ensure they’ve contributed to an RIAA certified single.

Then they send it to us.

The different certifications have varying requirements, but the levels are shared for labels and publishers.  For example, to achieve gold status, sales and on-demand streams must equal 500,000; platinum is 1 million; and multi-platinum is 2 million or more (all US-based benchmarks).

+ Sony Corporation purchased a majority stake in EMI Publishing, which makes it the largest music publisher

How exactly are sales and streams calculated?

A few years back, the RIAA updated the way streams are calculated due to the format’s newfound dominance.  Essentially, 150 streams equals one paid download, and ten paid downloads equal an album equivalent.  Which means that 1,500 streams on an ‘approved, included’ streaming service equates to the ‘equivalent’ album.

Strange math for many, but it’s now the new yardstick.  So, for example, Drake’s 2017 More Life album would have to be streamed 1,500 times in order for it to count as one album sale.

G-Eazy takes the cake for top songwriter in April 2018

YouTube Will Now Publish Music Credits On Videos

The latest development in YouTube’s progression updated features will put Musical Artists in the driver seat for once. YouTube will debut a descriptive feature labelled “Music in this Video,” providing credit for artist, songwriter, label, and publisher. The option will be available to both verified and fan-made accounts and videos, and will include a link to the artist’s ficial page in a newly opened tab in the browser.

YouTube owes this development to a system called Content ID which can authenticate copyright owners’ information at light speed, by plunging into a constantly evolving database comprised data. Unfortunately the good comes with bad, as YouTube’s Head Music Lyor Cohen (a familiar foe) hopes to identify users who predominantly use the streaming service to listen to music. Once identified, Cohen hopes to swarm these users with more advertising content in order to encourage paid subscriptions to individual channels.

Never the less, an ad-blocker is mutually exclusive to proper net-browsing so Cohen’s antics may only effect mobile users. That being the case, the implementation “Music in this Video” is still a net positive for all those concerned. Elton John said, “Songwriters are the heart and the soul songs, so it’s wonderful seeing them get the credit they deserve. There is so much more we can do to establish a better situation for music creators and this is great step forward,” the initiative moving forward. Here’s to more inroads for privately owned music.
