Macklemore and Mac Miller have proven that in today's era of music you really don't need a major label to hit a home run with an album. Vlad TV caught up with producer/rapper Mannie Fresh to get his take on the two artists and where the industry is headed.
In Mannie's opinion the success of the two artists has nothing to do with them being white.
"It's showing that you don't really need the machine right now," Mannie said. "A lot of it has been like David Copperfield for like 10 years. It's a bunch of lies and b.s. that's been told to you to make somebody else money. A lot of dudes are proving that I don't need y'all. It's been that way for quite sometime. It was just a matter of who was brave enough to go through the door. I'd rather sell 10,000 records and get paid than have a million under my belt and not get nothing for them."
Mannie predicts that in 20 years there will be no labels.
