A couple of days ago someone asked me if Native Sun has a record deal or is looking to sign one. My response was an emphatic no. To me a record deal is just a fancy way of going into debt. I have plenty of that already from just getting a degree and having kids. At this stage in life my focus is on building something that I own and can pass on to my children.
Shortly after that conversation I came across this video from one of my favorite YouTube channels, Karceno4Life. Coincidentally it breaks down all the reasons why I wouldn't sign a record deal and why there so many talented people in hip hop who go broke. Check it out and let me know what you think.
