^^The 'record' deal was cool...the problem is monetizing and converting the digital streaming format, which is huge financial problem for a lot of historic artists. The conversion format is screwing a lot of our favorite musicians (all recordings before the 2000s)

How can you get stuck with a bullshit record deal and then complain when you want to expand professionally and financially. Insane. Do the work first.

Not even the lottery, irs, attorneys , and student loans get more than 40%, and so I know capitalism has its LIMITS before it is considered unlawful. There has to be some sort of law barring 90% when agents and managers don't even get that. Tommy Boy might what to scale back because eventually the government takes notice of mafioso tactics.
