Making A Living In Music Is The Same Everywhere

We have one of the most sophisticated networks for making money from all aspects from music in the United States, but when it comes down to it, it's not that different from some of the less developed entertainment areas of the world.

Take Nigeria, for instance. The music business is primitive in so many ways, but when you dig deep into it, it's exactly the same as the US if you're a DIY artist and not a huge corporation. Here's an interesting video interview of Rapper LD on SmartMonkey TV that illustrates the point. LD is smart and hip, and has been at it long enough that he knows just what to do in Nigeria. My guess is that he'd make it in the States in a minute.
