James Brown, Lauryn Hill, Robert discussed on The Black Guy Who Tips Podcast


There are artists who do cut pay, though James Brown was the Torius with Dr musicians that they did something. He didn't like, I'm sure there are others. Yeah, but it's different when James somehow win is a man, right? Right. We also know, but people love them. James around people, love those stories of him being like, you came in late on this. He takes one hundred dollars off your pay like a certain way. All right. It was man. That was one person that was shitting on Lauryn Hill on on my time line.

I didn't scream and yell. Maybe I didn't provide experience that a musician may have wanted or expected during that time, but I was straightforward direct about my business, a hand, making art is a labor of love, but it's still labor and can be labor intensive at that. If a musician was looking for cushy job, filled with Saint trappings purposely weaned myself from we wouldn't have been on the same page anyway. Make no mistake.
