Though artists like Big K.R.I.T. continue to use free projects to get their music out, not every emcee agrees with that business model.
In an interview with The Come Up Show TV, Sean Price revealed that he is against handing out music for free. “That ain’t a diss to everybody, because some little dudes make dope music,” explained P! “I just don’t…I’ve had studio sessions where I’ve made four songs. But I’m gonna put it out when I’m ready to. I don’t actually believe in giving out free music. I think that sucks, b. I’m gonna bust my ass to make this music. It might be free to y’all, but I had to pay somebody to get this stuff. I don’t believe in free music. You got to cop this, bruh.”
Interestingly, Price admitted that bootlegging was inevitable, and that it doesn’t bother him that much. “Just wait long enough and steal it later. You can’t stop bootlegging. I just try to put a stop to it when it first come out. But after a couple of months, go with what you know.
Price also listed his favorite projects of 2012. “I feel like me, Roc Marciano, and Kendick Lamar put the illest albums out. Straight up.” He was referring to his own Mic Tyson, Roc’s Reloaded and Kendrick Lamar’s gold-selling good kid, m.A.A.d city.
