to move with the times to make it work. Simple as that.
The steps in a service like Muve – Ghost, how do you feel about these services?Are they helping or hurting the music industry?
They can’t hurt. They are paying us for our music. However you needto package it, through a phone or whatever, just package it.
What’s next for Ghostface?
I have a new album dropping on April 26th. It’s different. I’m tryingto do a lot of things that I have never done before. Everything I do is a year or two in ad-vance. I’m working for next year. It’s all about the future.
Interview with Sheek Louch of The Lox
Sheek, what do you think about Muve as a service and what it’s doing for themusic industry?
I think it’s beautiful. Not only because they bought us out here for SXSW,you know us OG’s like myself and Ghostface, but also for what they are doing for theyoung boys that are coming up. Showcasing their talent is what it’s all about.
That’s a great political answer, but what about money? Are they paying you?
Let me take my shades off and get serious with you. **Takes shades off** Idon’t do anything if there’s no money. It’s about getting that paper. Other than that,there is nothing to even talk about. Especially when you’ve got mortgages and car notes.I’m grown now. If Muve wasn’t paying, I wouldn’t say anything else about it. Period.So there you have it. Garnering rapper endorsement, and specifically grown rapper en-dorsement, Muve seems to be a pretty good service. I also love that Ghostface and Sheek Louch are rolling with the punches, utilizing digital for its infinite power instead of looming in “the record industry has changed” woe-is-me funk.I hope Muve saves all of your pirate souls and gives you good music-buying karma.
