And you still recouping, stupid
Artists don’t make a dime until they have recouped costs. So while Biggie’s rollin in dough, you have yet to make any real profit on your music. This may be further shade thrown at Nas for the lackluster commercial performance of Illmatic, though it should be noted that 1996’s It Was Written sold two million copies.
