For decades hip Hop has been controlled by the record companies. They invest millions and profit billions from global cassette, CD, DVD and now ringtone sales.
Music moguls afford a lifestyle comparable to what we see on MTV Cribs. Eventually Hip Hop artists would adapt the record company formula, and start to strategically
promote and market their own music. This has created conflict inside the industry. The record companies, in conjunction with the Recording Industry Association
of America (RIAA), have declared war. Offices have been raided. mom and pop stores have been closed, and many have been arrested. Hip Hop artists, DJs, and producers
have decided that the only way to survive in the music industry is to " kill the record labels".
