In this clip, J Stalin detailed how he became acquainted with Bay Area legends Mac Dre and E-40. He spoke at length about being an independent artist and the long-term financial security that he’s established as a result.
J Stalin stated that he’s put out over 60 projects which include about 11 albums and a number of mixtapes and compilations on his album ensuring he sees the financial benefits from sales and streams.
Vlad asked J Stalin why more artists don’t go indie and he said he thinks artists who haven’t seen real money before find it more difficult to pass up large advances and deals. But for someone who has gone out and made money off of their art already, the conversation has to be different.
