Dont listen to anyone, their all fools talking shit because they dont know better.


If you want to publish your music you should acquire a lawyer, particularly one that specializes with music and entertainment, look up the yellow pages and you ought to find one.

There are also lots of internet sites which can do services like that for you.

http://www.emimusicpub.com/worldwide/index.html

is a start

there is also some type of office in america that deals with copyrighting your stuff....Im not sure exactly what its called cause Im in Canada but ask around cause I know something like that exists.

You need a distribution deal. A company like Koch can do that for you but they wont give you one until you have some sort of buzz or exposure, which I highly doubt. You would have to be rocking shows locally, opening shows for big acts, and then maybe build up some reputation and feed off that, then go with your Manager / Lawyer to Koch representatives and talk business.

A major chain operated retail music store prolly wont do that. They'll laugh at you, but small privately owned stores or mom and pop shops will. Once again it depends on your buzz and how well your known. If your getting airtime on the local radio station or some shit then you got a chance to convince them to buy a couple copies. If you got people going into a store asking for you then the owners will obviously cop some copies off you direct.

Koch will give you aprx. 6 dollars a copy.
Private record shops it differs, anywhere from 1-7 dollars you can get.
If your a hustler you'll get top dollars for it, if your a punk kid your gettin 1 dollar.






It seems to me however your just a young kid and have no clue how the music industry works. People like you get taken advantage of. What I would do is just go to open mics and freestyle joints and get a reputation out. Assemble a street team with your homies and sell your tapes out of your trunk or back pack. If y'all some real hustlers and your product is HOT, you can push a couple of thousand tapes. Sell em at 5 to 10 dollars a pop and do the math. 10 000 tapes times 10 dollars = 100 000 grand CASH TAX FREE

Thats how Lil Flip first came to prominence.
Thats how Master P did his hustle.
Thats how 90% of emcees come up.

Then you wont need to be asking dumb questions like this.
Distributers and companies will be coming to you instead of you to them.






good luck with your shit and get a lawyer
