I'm glad we got it.


Manny Up

Let's go and go nowhere. That's right. That's right.


MC EIHT

Shit.


Manny Up

Sure. And we'll just talk about some industry stuff. What we doing after industry, you know how we can help these kids. These new rappers, these new producers, how they should be more hip than us. Because we went through the trials and tribulations and didn't get all the bread we were supposed to get. We learned lessons, but it would have been nice to learn lessons with some bread attached to that don't mean we didn't get bread.


Montage One

Yeah, we got the best bread period.


Manny Up

Do you know today? I mean, we learn less. Exactly. Exactly. We've we've generated the most bread. But although all that generated bread and always get into the pocket that was deserved Ryan to be honest. Man when you go and diamond when you send in 451 2 million copies of hard not that string. Yeah, that's a lot of that's a lot of jewelry. A lot of money generated


MC EIHT

understanding contracts. Oh, and the percentages you get in what comes with that a lot of us as young artists didn't understand contracts and paperwork and shit. So we was just happy to sign record deals in you know, get us a chain ride in the limo and maybe get a spot and write on a rap beat magazine. Right? We was good with that. So we didn't understand what the percentages like we do today. And that's why you see a lot of artists today these new cats that come out see a lot of them snatching a gang of bread, you know what the streaming and all that because they didn't have it back in our days. We have to sell hard records Bri right. contracts were structured differently, you know, you had to sign the major labels back then. And uh, cats like myself, we were only getting probably about 50 to 60 cents per record. So even though we probably generated sales of a million to 3 million copies, you were never seeing that money because basically you had to recoup all the shit that the record labels gave you you know, that's the


The Chillcmw

lesson


Manny Up

Yeah, that's one of the lessons he gave me a can of props for that lesson.


Montage One

Oh, by the way, but got away by the way y'all Finally we got the sound beat by for my nigga. D give it up yourself real quick.


Manny Up

Producer, our editor our


The Chillcmw

media finally made


Manny Up

Jerry guard maybe


The Chillcmw

with high was like 50 cents a copy or some shit like that. You know, I'm saying back in the days versus now. It's kind of a ying and yang because these cats is doing 360 deals right? You I'm saying the word a company they want in on the show money the publishing the royalties, mechanical royalties, the whole get. I'm saying no


Montage One

What now, just people speak badly of the 360 deal, but I gotta say it depends on who's bringing what to the table. You will be a fucking idiot to take a 360 deal and you've already have all These avenues set up that you was just too lazy to reach out or some shit like that and take a 360 deal then you fucked yourself but if you don't have any of those connections and you want to have it all I mean


The Chillcmw

you got a machine behind you but you got to break bread with doing the beat wrapping this in your facilities mixing and mastering and you turn around go to the company they give you some money right but they won't even on the show. They won't even on the feature


Montage One

on the commercial everything


The Chillcmw

you know I mean yeah, I don't I don't think it's a good well okay. Pay me for my services and that's about it. Well, what about we make some money we make some money together.


Montage One

Well, what about when you have you have no taps into any of that you don't I'm saying so there's a small percentage of people who could probably benefit from it, but I would hope you make your contract as short as possible so that when you finally let's just say if they just really bought


The Chillcmw

at that time the company ain't gonna recoup shit I'm what a company is going to be cool everything but it's gonna take them years to recoup that right? The artists never get no money


Manny Up

okay, I


The Chillcmw

cannot show money I'm saying that's kind of scandalous nowadays. Let


Manny Up

me give you a perfect example. Is it a good or bad deal? So when Empire started right, they wanted puffy son to play. What was dude's name a came on TV show Empire right so they want to puffy son to play the lead rap young rap character right? But there was only willing to sign him for 360 deal. So that means that he will do music for the show be featured on the show of course get hot because of the show. But everything he did after the show they still had a little piece right and puffy would lead


Montage One

right because the sun that's the perfect example like exact Why would you do that when perfect could tap into any of them shits at any time we make all that happen? Now


Manny Up

you take a kid that had a kid that did it now. He because puffy son didn't do it. The guy forgot his name. I'm gonna look at right he did it right now the show is kind of off the air. Right? I don't know if that 360 arm is still touching them. But yeah, he came out


The Chillcmw

with nothing. He'll try to recoup a money. Yeah, I'm saying and now it's like, I don't know.



Do deal


Montage One

to a man who waited for the fifth motherfucking year or the first day and saw the last day of the fifth year and got out of a contract and got all my fucking music back to put out on iTunes and all that shit. 100% So all I'm saying is you could take a deal and I took that deal because at the time it was RBC. They had their hands in a few areas that I wanted to fuck with. And I said to myself, I don't like this deal, but I'm gonna ride this shit out for five years and again, I'm gonna put that fucking reminder in my phone Nigar Nigar got out that motherfucker.


The Chillcmw

We did a deal with over there RBC and it was the same thing. You know what's do name and shit. Ryan Ryan shafted. Yeah. Y'all mean and, you know, they didn't even put no money up. I came out the dirty Oh, geez. We came with a mixed master record. We have 10 videos. You know, I'm saying boom, you ain't gotta put no money up. Really? All they charges for the plug. Right? Put the shit in Best Buy. Right? You know, I'm saying like, that's that was it and super charges for it. Right? You know, I'm saying so anything that came in, they claimed they had to recoup they money. And then sales go down and



5050


Manny Up

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no matter what, no matter what your percentage is. When you when you're saying, say do it ourselves, right?


The Chillcmw

If you ain't got that machine and a working like you really mind fucking work your publisher, you're marketing the whole get out to where they can get some money. Do it yourself?


Montage One

Well, I say the 360 deals, so many ways


The Chillcmw

to do it. You got tunecore you got all these play, right?


Montage One

And now, the 360 deals just way late because that actually would have been a good idea before. You know, the internet took off to a point where now you can really break yourself. Just thinking it out. You know what I'm saying? But there was a time where I thought the 360 deal would have worked for a lot of people and that's rock


The Chillcmw

and roll if you get that money up front and don't back on no more money. Yeah, I'm saying I Steven Tyler and him me the money right? You I'm saying I'm gonna go on tour. Y'all can't get none of this money. I'm a tour for about three years. You understand rock this way for three years and they gonna be asking me to do a record. I'm like, I'm not inspired. Okay, I'm with the family. I don't want a motherfucking You know, I'm


Manny Up

saying nice. All right, why we got eight here money. We're gonna go through a brief history. So what year did y'all come out 89 1989 dropped the first album, legendary album. Nice Nice.


MC EIHT

No actually 89 was when the Compton compilation came out okay when we we bumped into Lonzo and DJ unknown and that was around the time when you know rap was getting first started in the city you know a lot of underground cats you know tiny t spayed eyes more walking in walking all in cat TDK cat caches to listen to so it was around that time where it was these two other cats that was trying to get on and we just happened to be you know, right place at the right time. Lonzo unknown DJ slip was there and they heard a little bullshit demo tape we got did yeah and from there we got that tape kicking us done Yeah, we got with slip and then from there man we did a content compilation the song guy wants to funky Hey model once again you know we didn't get any royalties or any money from it.


The Chillcmw

I think it's trying to rap


MC EIHT

I think I got maybe $150 or some shit right? But it was just a dream of recording a record so that would lead us to techno hop doing the three songs for techno hop



and then live it up from there


MC EIHT

the popularity of West Coast rap at the time was coming up you know I'm saying so it just gave us a paved the way for us to sign a deal a shady deal to Big B productions which was unknown company.


The Chillcmw

look real quick question was we signed


MC EIHT

to unknown we were signed to be big B


The Chillcmw

Big B was signed to inc B got


MC EIHT

to deal with Orpheus, Orpheus and Orpheus had to deal with us at a distribution deal with capital EMI capital EMI Orpheus this is the this is the tale of record labels from the beginning of time we as black people never own record labels they were all owned by everybody know who the record labels were owned by right so since the beginning of time this is what happens you walk in as an artist you write your songs you produce them you come up with the music then big Willie takes your music puts it on the master he puts it out to the masses he claims 95 97% 3% You don't even really get 3% a standard artists back in my days got seven cents we got points is why I call it sighs Okay, so standard do like me would get maybe seven points or record maybe equaled out to about 50 something cents right? Okay, so we signed a deal and then the record labels go Okay, your budget gonna be 250 grand. That's coming from EMI. EMI goes here Orpheus here's 250 Orpheus goes even though Orpheus ain't gonna do a goddamn thing gonna produce a record right they not finna right ship right? They just



facts


MC EIHT

they taken 150 off the top that's because we Orpheus no matter of fact we don't take 160 Why then from that 160 they slide on no nine B okay. And out of that 90 unknown probably pocketed anywhere between 50 to 60 right and then he goes is 1015 left that's what we got to do to record with eight here go 2500 to hit go 1200 slip hit go three grand right and let's enter he still take a portion of that right even though even pocketed about right so that went on for about three years. Yeah, yeah, that went on for the first day or so but that's the standard business of an artist because like I said when you come into this business we all get fucked if you are an artist right you dealt with that situation I don't give a fuck if you're an artist right now you I'm out today and you're going up under way on records right want Wham is gonna get you right? That's just the way it goes. Unless you are independent my fucker who go fuck it like any bears tune course there's empires there, whatever, right? A standard artist. A person like me as a young motherfucker had that dream of riding limos and chains and that major label backing. That's what entices you to sign that contract, right? You're not thinking like, oh, what kind of deal is this? A 360 or three to 450 years and a seven day we're looking at it Nick. I'm a young hungry motherfucker from the streets. Going up and niggas a shooting in the backyard. Got a duck down and I'm trying to get the fuck about instead of get on the corner, right like I've been doing for the last day. So let


Montage One

them take care On the rug real quick back then he really helped me.


MC EIHT

So yeah, that's just basically how we got started. We just followed in the path of a lot of artists who came up at that time. Like I said, if you came up during the early 90s, in music, the early 80s you know, whatever, then that was your path, you get me. Everybody had labels, Lonzo had crew cut, they had Egypt Empire, they had techno hop, they had la Dream Team records. That's how niggas got on right. But in a sense of the cases you got young starving artists who writing and producing all his music, and he just got some dude who was in a position of power to go fuck that. You guys that's why you have a lot of artists from our era who old school but don't have the accolades or the finance that you see a Drake have or little baby hat or whatever them niggas come out and bingo right me they got a Rolls Royce tomorrow I'm Platinum Brian's a shit because they're able to access their money from the standpoint of my own life.


Montage One

Right? Exactly. It's direct. Well, we learn from y'all


Manny Up

we didn't have that not that one day learn from y'all which is


MC EIHT

fine No fucking wreck. Exactly. Oh, Sony wreck Right, exactly. I'm only gonna make seven cents at the end. Right? Exactly.


Montage One

And somehow these labels are still finding niggas though even even in the midst.


The Chillcmw

You got ya. inspiring. Right, right.


MC EIHT

Yeah. doing shit. Yeah. sitting back and they going? Oh, let me get on my computer today.



Yeah, let me put this nigga


MC EIHT

Tennessee who got 15 million views? Right? Right, right. He got fucking 100,000 fans on Instagram already. He got fucking 20,030 subscribers to page. That's why I'm gonna go give a deal Jackie All right.


The Chillcmw

You know, like you I'm saying they like what can I what can you do for me? You know, I'm saying versus you. I'm saying what we could do for y'all. As a company. How can we make some money together based on your talent, right? Yeah, I'm saying hey, looking at Nick is now like, what can you do for me exam Sam because I'm changing your life. I'm gonna give you all this money. I'm gonna take you off the hook right


Montage One

now Sam that's back to that dude. See? That's what I'm saying. Like, there's like some people are gonna have a talent to being artists and not know how to do the management shit period. I don't care how hard they


The Chillcmw

go everything Everything is that deal might


Montage One

be good for them. Because if they never if they have no taps, like I say into any parts of those games, parts of that game, and they don't know how to like conjure the shit up themselves through game. them niggas might be candidates for that fucking deal, bro. And they might be really


MC EIHT

happy there isn't a mindfuck on this planet on Earth right now who shouldn't want to put out their own music exactly if you want to because it's so accessible now right? Like shit. All I gotta do is I tell this niggas this shit every day. record labels back then look for talent. They looked for you know, muffins went out to talent shows right? They back to studios when they heard all this My father was don't do that shit nowadays, right? So what they do now is an aggregator looking to set up get this program get on my grandmama confess Yes, give me a mic right here. Megan blah blah blah blah blah upload my shit to soundcloud and nigga tomorrow I got a million fucking fans right now y'all come to me, right that's how we had to rise.


Montage One

We didn't have those tools but at the same time along with that comes millions of motherfuckers doing the same thing. So then there's becomes this this area where it's like okay, how do I separate myself from these millions of motherfuckers doing the same thing you can't



well you can't


Montage One

sometimes you can't and it's usually usually through shock value is that that's how they get no now they got Shock Value shit on the side that raises them up from the million motherfuckers because now this dude with this gun out are you notice when you check out worldstar of lat it's all about like I'll do got arrested today which is gun to cars



cars all that shit that's the new forum right?



Like


MC EIHT

I don't even look at it cloud chasing because the mo focus is just it's the new form of of gimmick Brian.


Montage One

Right and in that gimmick and in that gimmick it makes I swear to god that's how it works. It makes everybody for that day shifted that nigga for the day is


MC EIHT

crazy. gimmicks have always worked Yeah, you know everything


The Chillcmw

is a fucking you know social media game these days. You know my focus look on a keep scrolling and finish. Nothing interest is to look at right you I'm saying so right Tom YOU SEE A BIT shaking her ass or do getting held up by the police and shit y'all mean right and



at the same time


The Chillcmw

yeah it's so many rappers is so many rappers


Manny Up

and in between entities right you gotta fight those


The Chillcmw

but you got all these rap niggas that's just doing shit like he said SoundCloud sensation yeah yo meme and you know you still got niggas that solidified as dropping records and shit Yo I'm saying we all got those you know EMI my fuckers Memorial epics or I you know Sony's or whoever the fuck you I'm saying we're doing the same thing they do strike them on fucking Spotify or some shit yeah, I know what you mean but my focus ain't seeing the ship because the world is small but with all this bullshit, right? It's


Manny Up

true. I am saying segue because we talked about business right now I want to get to the creative side of C MW because in a world where Compton I don't know what the fuck was in the water and Compton, but charges came with so much talent even to this man good


The Chillcmw

we in PlayStation man,


Manny Up

let me tell you the talent. And even when you guys dropped the talent. You know what I'm saying? But you guys separated yourself with a jazzy soul was still funky and hard as fuck. But it was different. It was different than NWA. It was different than what I like above the law was more like g funky more. I was jazz hard funk, which actually pulled a line because East Coast would grab on to y'all because you even know your sound was West Coast. They could feel that jazz. Yeah, they could feel that difference.


MC EIHT

I was a record. Bigger. Okay, if you I call it a crate digging into crates.


Manny Up

It always says Well,


MC EIHT

yeah, it was me. I was a nigga who grew up listening to other music, right? I didn't listen to the parliaments and the whatever you know, I listen to a Ganga white shit, right. I listened Duran Duran yeah Benetton as it is two Miles Davis I still do. Craig t Cooper and so I always wanted to is what I tell my focus when I used to write songs, whatever or when I would have an idea I would always want my fuckers to sit down and look like as if they was in the movie theater right and they listening to the movie scored the soundtrack right in the car I mean, you know they excite


Manny Up

did feel


MC EIHT

like that so I didn't want to do the typical atomic dog you know Rogers that because everybody was doing that was from right you know and then like I said, being a lover of hip hop you know, listening to niggas like every day and Pete Rock and CL smooth Public Enemy Lang source and shit like that. It was a different it was diverse then listening to easy your cube or tiny you or whatever, bro. I always had that musical prowess. So when I will go to slip I will be like, on on my fucking we might go on sample atomic dog. Listen to this mother fried chicken and I listen to this right? It is sugar free. Yeah. And listen to this motherfucking Michael Henderson right. That's what we did. And then slip was the type of more fucker he went to, you know, check out this meeting. Check out this motherfucking Alex boom young record from



Listen man,


Manny Up

shout out to slip here shout out.


Montage One

I could put this bra and I've been thinking about this for for at least a week now knowing that he was coming on the show. But you guys actually with music to drive by you actually. You're the blueprint of what? like mad lib and Freddie Gibbs are doing right now.


Manny Up

That's real talk.


Montage One

You know what I'm saying? Like you guys started that to me with that record. Like That shit was so motherfucking different at the time, but it's like you like you hit a nigga with a sucker punch bro. Cuz niggas probably would have swore up and down it was gonna be more like gangster sounding. It was gonna be messing with the cover. Record That's what I'm saying. You never saw coming. Covering on bro You fucked me up when niggas open that fucking record or that fucking tape.



A great plan.


The Chillcmw

What the fuck like


Montage One

what the fuck these niggas is awesome like many given New York problems nigga


MC EIHT

for different man. Yeah, it was just we just want to be different than I was different than


The Chillcmw

what was always different anyway, right I just in the music, y'all. I'm saying this in the hood Street, y'all. I'm saying yeah, we rock With the homies we do this but we always was like nigga, y'all doing that we over here. I'm saying that people always wanted to do what we was doing right that's the leader in this we're not we never was followers even though we was doing this right and i think that kind of poured off into the music


Manny Up

and like telling the music


The Chillcmw

sit up and listen to some crazy shit but the shit jam Yeah. And he painted the I mean so he like man. Let's romney this I'm gonna cut like Yeah, all right yeah, I'm


MC EIHT

saying nice. Wasn't we wasn't we wasn't scared to try shit. That was out of the norm. Even though we were Compton and we was from the hood right was with all Lang and a Jheri curls


Montage One

and all that


MC EIHT

Yeah, carry wraps. Yeah, you know, niggas would records and still going to the neighborhood like that. We just you know, when it came to the music shit nigga want to stand out right currently right and we never wanted to be the you know, we never wanted to be the little brothers of NWA right want to stand on our own as competence Most Wanted, right? Because even though they had they Tales from the hood, ma'am, take some differentiate, right? I'll tell you some real real shit. Like nigga sit I was in the alley last night and again this shit happened right so I'm gonna go home right quick and I'm gonna pin this shit what happened to the homie homie and the homie so and so i and this happened in that ham? I'm not I'm telling you some real shit and that's what we came from that's why you got songs like who took me on Bing or nigga struggling drive by Miss days. That shit was going like right now and doing that shit right? You see that shit? nigga Let me tell you that guy. walk around with a fucking tape recorder I click and go home and think I'm writing about Yeah, I was one of them niggas man. I'm not one of them. Yeah, and the Gama tells for shit off the top of my brain or non nigga tell you in depth


Montage One

you know what it all reflects in the music bro like you're planning a whole lot right now. I don't know how you came up with it but it reflects in the music now this is how they shit every


MC EIHT

day that's what the difference is with being able so niggas be like man how you come up with some or you come up with shit like she's happy. Right? I want you talking right right Nick I am at home and sitting in my face on the school bus right I'm on the block is right to drag new experiences. That is what brought you comp one hit me because like I said we was real participants in that motherfucking genocide of killing motherfucking niggas and black on black crime and all that shit. So


The Chillcmw

man when you see niggas like mix master spade and tidy T and a big ass k five with the top down big ass dukey ropes pushing down central sand and we stand in there like the homies right there and we got a mixtape



right


The Chillcmw

and we just got jack bought a pole he had his hand up we load it drink it you're


MC EIHT

gonna pour off in the museum and I like to tell my fuckers that. makers might look at that and go these were bad influences on a nigga was positive influences on me to watch niggas in the streets in the police and niggas getting jacked and niggas get dying for you know for the neighborhood and all that is what made me be able to tell the stories and shit that I brought to the table. That was real life. Besides wouldn't nigga Saul fucking movies like colors and boys in the hood and ministership there's some real shit going on right


Montage One

all right he did you know fucking mentioned man it's too All right. I man


Manny Up

this is his favorite movie


Montage One

Because you know for niggas that grew up banging man like his shit like knee deep sends a chill up your motherfucking spine you know I'm saying aka Boogie sends a chill every fucking spot when you hear shit like D helped me out bro. Can you help me please?


The Chillcmw

Hey, homie, you need some help.



nega that's a real shame


MC EIHT

to call my producers and she'd say man, I need me some


Montage One

last minute float food that she didn't because I thought about it when was outside I was like, I'm gonna ask this negative be like come on nigga. And I was like in case you don't make it I got the soundbite


MC EIHT

like I said man it's like I said was one of those movies on those cold classics you know shout out to the Hughes brothers all the participants in it was just one of those things like me and I didn't think it was going to come to me really it was for ran down that's all the shit was for shout out to


Montage One

ran a shout out and I don't really think he could have been as charismatic my nigga like


MC EIHT

does that mean that means shut on my nigga ran leave on it was large man you know it fit the purpose you know when you looking at niggas like que ma you had to proc rights and so that that was the next line up it just so happened that Bran was busy and this is meant to be the most fun you don't see anything on the boxes every other day listening to one time they see a nigga standing my Compton hi real hood niggas right man he's like let's call this Nick Ross see what's up and now I'm not thinking shit like we was on the road I think in Cleveland or some shit Chicago I remember and then I wow I wasn't even tripping off that shit but then then get that nigga got the part because I just thought that they wanted some kind of authenticity they want to bring to the table not disrespecting the acting skills of Marines are set out the winds and tiring and like I said, I need to live this shit. Yeah particular part. Oh, you



can totally tell when I


MC EIHT

grew up in Compton, California. So I walked to school rode bikes walked through neighborhoods got sweated sweat it makers gets pulled poor I'll get exact went through all that shit. So when this character came about, it was like oh, this is this was that


Montage One

MC EIHT

They have scripts and all that shit and I had lines but I was able to ad lib a lot of shit. Oh yes, she was able to ad lib a lot of shit because I just tell Eleanor Albert

Right? They want to play Aaron the gun dude. Okay. went to go see had all the good Yeah, they want me to play. So it was corny them. I mean, look, you look at the movie, right? You look at the character and she's corny. I won't be no corny. Yes, that's right.


The Chillcmw

I shout out to a for not selling out on the corner.


Manny Up

Hopefully I think you probably could have told them and Hollywood is tough. Like this. It is corny if I'm in it. Let me let me do let me show you how the gun guy



eventually it would have got there


MC EIHT

and I was gonna say I think that's what happened. Because they wanted to be they wanted it to be a little more comedic. A little lighter. I was a little bit too more like yeah, my foot I


Montage One

realize this comedy in that bill.


MC EIHT

I'll go out to his car and pop the trunk.


Manny Up

But it is comedy.


MC EIHT

While he was like maybe we need to deal with us a real Hollywood. Right? Because he probably won't bring his own guns. Right


Montage One

The Chillcmw

what he does



okay that's what I'm saying


The Chillcmw

and he did in any district out of Compton



sam i go



to the same area


MC EIHT

so definitely roles out there that you're starting to see right are depicting you know the real the real is the realism of what niggas do right of being from the streets and nigga don't have to stray from who he feels or what he believes in right when he says it for his for his hip hop is concerned I said because there's been plenty of opportunities to sell out right but I just felt like that ain't me man I come from Compton and also I want to be that and I can't pick or judge any other my fucker for what they do or what they've done in a career right and it might have helped him or her hurt them or whatever it has, but to me I just been comfortable being right where I am


The Chillcmw

so it's safe to say that that's not a passion of yours acting


MC EIHT

And you know me and my team fucked around as far as who banging is concerned. So I went ahead and did that Ryan as the 100 kilos it was just a favor to somebody and I say fuck it but I've never been one of those dudes to chase the White Rabbit you feel right down cool, man.
