    You can write off anything, that doesn’t mean it’s advised. In the? long run, it will catch up to you I’m not about to give that info in my vids… You can if you want to though.

  2. DameTaylorTV says:

    Use the internet to market and promote yourself. there are hundreds that feel the same way… But now days, being a producer is more than just having good beats… It’s being smart enough to get them heard. Almost everyone nowdays has good/decent beats. It’s not my job to get? you heard, it’s up to you man. Use the info I give you to prepare for it if you get your shot. Good luck, dude.

    Good info but you got the Taxes wrong lot less then 34% of 10,000. U write off the cost of lawyer, middle man, and manage as a business expense.. Also at tax time you can write off 1 half of self employment tax. If your tax rate is 34% the rate of tax would be bout 26.5% of total taxable income. $7500 – $1987 = $5513 in the ball park. but shit if you legit you can write off the plain ticket buss? ticket hotel bill rental car.Just saying know the taxes.

    thanks? !

  12. niggapino85 says:

    Yo Cuz. Thanks for this video. Really helpful info. Just wanted to ask…you gave the example of $10,000 to charge a record company for a beat…Realistically though..how much could a producer completely new to the game with absolutely no credentials,? but makes really good music, charge to a label (or major artist)? Obviously $10,00 would be too much? Thanks in advance.

  18. Inspirmentalist says:
