The digital age is giving power back to the artist and making them less dependent on the record labels. Artists have more control of their own music, artistic direction, artwork and promotions. With social media it gives artists the outlets necessary to promote their own brands but is there still a large amount of profit being made? According to RapRehab, If you take an artist with a major label deal and has signed an agreement entitling them to a low royalty profit on their CD sale. It would take the sale of 3871 units to equal a minimum wage salary of $1,160 a month.
