Ryan Leslie believes he can lead artists to a successful music career.
The singer, songwriter, rapper, producer has built a solid knowledge bank and resume in the music business from releasing three albums independently, touring the globe and producing several records for others. Through is upcoming business venture, the music entrepreneur stakes that he can beat the industry.
"97% of all albums released in a year sell less than 1000 copies. Be on my new label and be part of the top 3%," Leslie stated.
Leslie shared one of his first monetization lessons insisting, "To make $100K in a yr from YouTube, u would need to have 1MM subscribers and release 20 videos/week."
Rather than just playing the boss, Leslie plans to mentor any artists that join his company's roster. "Every artist on my new label will learn the tools to understand where the real sustainable business model is in music & entertainment."
The Harvard graduate will launch a new record label on July 4, 2014.
