The issue with George Michael however was that he took the money Sony gave him and then decided he suddently did not want to promote his work.
Sony was having any of that. Prince at least made music videos etc promoted his work, showed up and showed face.
Prince actually reached out to female artists on the subject like Janet Jackson (unsuccessfully) and Mariah Carey on owning masters...of which they ended up doing later.
it was also that george had signed away his life pretty much at the age of 18 to some onerous contracts and Prince never had it that bad. Either way, the issue was power, control and money once you scrape off all the bullshit, you go up against a leviathan, you better have your ducks in order because most likely you're not gonna win.
i wish we can 'like' comments on here lol
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy
