Unless you truly know these cats, like really know know them, or know someone that did or does, or you're their manager or accountant or know either one,
you can't really go by what is speculated. 250Gs is like an entire rappers advance. I've heard a million advance for top artists (usually pop+rnb), but
even at that, 250Gs upfront is crazy. Like someone said, good producers usually take an amount up front+points on the album. Like with JT I don't think
Timbo got 250 in advance, but with points on the album (probably a lot since all of JTs bangers were Timbo produced I think) 250 sounds reasonable. I remember
some youtube clip that was made by raul conde (some dude in fat joes crew that hangs with scott) where they were all chillin in storch's studio blazed, and
scott said he usually takes 70Gs (and most likely points if he knows its gonna do #s), and scott, although he acts like a corn ball, is at the top of the
earnings list as far as producing goes. I dunno though, he might need cake or is just selling b/c hes bored, but his yacht "Tiffany" was sold on
ebay, but didnt meet reserve price.
