Urgent Warning!: Time Is Running Out For Artists & Writers To Exercise Their Termination Rights Under U.S. Copyright Law To Convert Case 

The 1976 Copyright Act provides for the termination of copyright transfers – but authors need to act within a limited timeframe. Creators are entitled to reclaim their copyrights regardless of any contract stating otherwise after certain time periods. Therefore, even if an author, artist, musician, photographer or songwriter signed a contract which purports to transfer all rights in a work for perpetuity, the Copyright Act provides that the author of the work can terminate that grant and demand that the rights revert. Authors and creators are now entitled to terminate their contractual transfers and demand back control of their copyrights; authors can terminate their book publishing contracts, songwriters can demand return of their musical compositions from music publishers and recording artists and record producers can demand return of their sound recordings from the record companies.

Latasha Alcindor’s Inspiring Story From Deep Depression To A $10K Angel Investment  Article

I grew up in a home with two parents who sold me the dream anything being possible. There was no prison for my passions, no cage for my creativity, and I’ll thank them until my dying day for their unwavering support in all my hopeful and hopeless endeavors.

Many months ago, I wrote an article praising the parents rappers who were the backbone careers during the early, uncertain stages. Parents who supported before any money or fame, simply the wind beneath wings that could potentially soar or possibly never leave the ground. I applauded the mother Kanye, the parents Chad Hugo, the grandmother Big Sean―but deep down I knew these stories were rare, and not the norm. It’s hard enough to be an artist, but even harder when there’s no solid foundation to stand upon, no real system support.

A lot of people want it with Lil Boat.

It’s been a huge year for Lil Yachty. The red-beaded rapper has been everywhere and back by the ripe age of 19, securing himself the “King of the Youth” title Ian Connor has been forced to leave behind. Unfortunately, not everyone has been happy with the sudden rise of Lil Boat. Rappers (Soulja BoyAb-Soul) have made dissing Yachty a habit this past year, and even some non-rappers have followed suit (sorry Shia).

Flip through the gallery to take a look at all the people who have been taking shots at the world’s most nautical rapper this past year. We don’t see them sinking the boat anytime soon.
