The Most Important Speech You’ll Hear About The Recording Industry This Year.

This guy is Young Guru. No, I’d never heard if him either. Mainly cos precious little of my time is spent reading hip-hop/R ‘n’ B sleevenotes, but he’s worked on a lot of big records for Jay-Z, Kanye, Mariah etc…

Anyway, here he’s talking about the recording industry, the relationship between artists and labels and the irrelevance of the majors in the current musical climate.

He’s brilliant – eloquent, insightful, experienced – it’s the best speech I’ve heard on the subject in a very long time.
