With his appointment as the Head of Hip Hop for TuneCore, the premier development partner for self-releasing artists, Papoose is making some significant moves to start off 2023. In addition to maintaining 100% of the revenue generated by their work, TuneCore enables artists to keep control of their masters.
He claimed that working with TuneCore was a result of his own experiences in the music business, and that being independent also helped him refocus his musical endeavors. The rapper will oversee the organization‘s Artist Ambassador Program for Hip Hop and Rap, scouting up-and-coming artists, directing workshops for artist education and career assistance, and serving as a brand adviser for TuneCore’s most recent initiatives in technology and programming.
“For my whole career, everyone has known what I stand for: independence. For me, being in this position with TuneCore where I can directly contribute and help other self-releasing artists on the come up is like magic. I understand what it’s like to be in the studio, to be on the road, to chase your dreams as an artist, and I’m excited to help up-and-coming artists make their dreams a reality.”
The purpose of TuneCore is to prioritize the artist and provide them the freedom to work for themselves rather than a record company. Artists also have the ability to freely publish their music on all social media sites. According to the artists’ career objectives, they also have a set charge for an infinite number of releases, and TuneCore provides all earnings to labels and to the artists. According to a statement from the CEO, Andreea Gleeson, she chose Papoose because of his qualifications and experience in the field.
“When hiring executives I look for expertise and experience. Papoose’s years of hustling and success in the industry make him uniquely qualified to advise Hip-Hop artists because he’s been in their shoes, he understands what they’re going through and he knows first-hand what works.”
Additionally, the business created royalty splits, which freed up musicians from having to divide payments and gave them more time to focus on their songs. Additionally, it will encourage a community of artists to work together. In order to make sure that Split fits the demands of the chosen TuneCore artists, the firm will grant early access to Split. With local teams in the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, India, Japan, Thailand, The Philippines, and Singapore, TuneCore distributes music to more than 200 nations and territories. – Steve Sijenyi
