We’ll get a third of the merch that you sell out on the road
Along with a third of the money you make when you’re out doing your shows
Manager gets twenty, booking agent gets ten
So shit, after taxes, you and Ryan have 7% to split!
Here is a visual representation of most 360 deals. Macklemore was able to sidestep this, to a certain extent, by releasing independently through iTunes.
