  1. All the above artists existed when the media was centralized. These where the times of payola scandals, and big marketing campagns that seeem to of had sold the artist to the public.
    Now its awesome to see how artists get created without the hassle of a media channel breathing down necks.
    The Tyranny of Greed should end soon as long as people open their eyes as to what is going on.

  2. Once the musicians or singers enter the industry they come up with an aim to earn money and respect with these efforts It is not surprising to see some of the names who have made their places at the top list of the World’s 10 Richest Musicians.
