Did Dumbfoundead basically give up on music? What is going on with him now?

From what I can gather it seems like he gave up on his music career and is trying to be an actor. I just went on his YouTube channel expecting to catch up on a bunch of new songs/music videos and the last shit he uploaded was 7 months ago or something. Did he give up? Is that why he's back battling?

I remember how Jin tried to do music for a long time and then he got that stupid role in 2 Fast 2 Furious and he decided to quit music because he said the money was so much better in acting. Is this just the case with two guys or is it generally true that acting pays better than music? It seems sad that having a chickenshit supporting role in a car movie is more lucrative than doing tracks with Kanye. Then again Jin's early attempts at music kind of sucked.

Dude was getting lots of views and featured on NPR and shit. Thought he would have taken off with the music career, or at least kept it going with a dedicated online/underground fanbase.

He put a song up on soundcloud last month that has almost 150k listens, maybe he's just not using Youtube to promote his music as much

Most artists don't like youtube, because the royalties are paid to the label, not the artist.

Also if you are on his Facebook, he has been talking about his 2016 college campus tour that starts next month, so I think this post is more about him stepping away from Youtube more than anything else.

I'd imagine the money in acting is a lot better than it is in music. You'll be lucky to break even if you're not on a label, or have somebody supporting you financially. Just exhausting studio time/travelling/booking/pressing CD's , whatever else these kids do to make it happen.

Not really into the other music I've heard from him, but this kinda goes. His flow is pretty official. I could def see myself vibing to this at a party or something.

acting pays better than music, namely cuz u get ur money upfront instead of waiting on residuals...shit is sad man, in the music industry, how much artists actually get...

spotify? try $0.006 per play...3 million paying users listening to yo shit an u get like $5,000 smh...plus artists only get a $0.091 mechanical royalty for each song they do as it is, and the producer's cut comes out of that...even if u get a different royalty rate for ur actual "payment," 99% chance all that gets spent on recoupment...

an that's not counting ur manager that takes 15% (off-top, of course), plus ur booking agent, legal fees, etc...u sell a $30 t-shirt, ur manager's taking $4.50 off-top, the venue's gonna want their %15, there's another $4.50, plus the label needs their 25% since they made u sign a 360 deal, so that's another $7.50, then it cost u $5.00 to make the t-shirt in the first place, leaving u with a whopping $8.50 left, but don't forget u have to pay taxes on that, an as a business entity ur tax rate's going to be roughly 30-35%, so that $8.50 is really more like $5.75...to put that in perspective, merchandise offers about the highest profit percentage of anything a musician does (that, an live ticket sales), so keeping $5.75 out of every $30 u make is about the absolute best u can hope for...

an let's not forget artists get no money from the radio...the songwriters do, but the artist doesn't...same for venues playing songs...don't get me wrong, if u sell 10,000,000 albums on iTunes, ur gonna make some some money, but it's kinda like u made $1,000,000, yeah, but the album actually generated $200,000,000 (so u really only got like 1/2 of 1% of the income from ur work) an then u look back an realize were it not for the $5.75 per t-shirt u made, u'd still be in debt to the label even tho u cleared two hundred million in revenue...

welcome to the music industry...

It takes some skill to engage haters and keep shit going like he did. In truth he made a fool of Thesaurus in an earlier thread.
