Print big name Geza X informed us that, “I knew there’s no actual cash in indie labels, particularly now. I’m making $40 a month to separate between 20 other artists. It’s ill. It’s a humiliation in reality, to our tradition. Everyone can put out their very own report yeah, however so far as monetizing it, it’s worse than the ‘70s.
