Meek Mill hopped on Twitter to slam the record labels and their executives for keeping "Black kids in slave contracts," possibly referring to the controversial 360 deal many artists sign nowadays.
"Wassup with all these DIFFERENT RACE men got all these young black kids in slave contracts in the music business? Come get wit us you need help fixing ya situation #DC X #ROCNATION it's literally stealing now we found something we can get rich off!"
This is not the first time that Meek has taken aim at record labels for exploiting young, Black artists coming into the game:
"What about major companies taking kids from the ghetto and got them signing they lives away for a lil bit of money?We taking control of that 2020 and exposing the people offering these slave deals! Ima get some lawyers to break down some of these deals y'all offering these kids," he tweeted back in December.
The 360 deals mean that record companies get a cut of everything you earn as an artist, which can make it near impossible to make any serious money - depending on the details of your contract. More and more artists are choosing to remain independent and strictly distribute through the majors so that they maintain as much control over their music and their coins as possible.
