Smashing the Music Industry

Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins frontman, believes that the music business model is outdated and takes advantage of artists.

Tidal Wave

Jay-Z’s Tidal has made many ripples, however the splash seems to have been short lived. The March 2015 buy of Tidal has become a troubling investment for investors at the forefront.

Buy’s B.E.T. and kills off my favorite show, Rap City. The only video show remaining is the “black” version of TRL: 106 and Park. 

Now It wants to create another version of Myspace with Artists.MTV.
