Yes, it's true that independent artists have to pay for things like studio time, PR, and travel themselves, but at least they get to release music whenever they want.

That could be what Cordae is thinking because he revealed that he has to get permission from his label Atlantic to release a mixtape. The DMV artist's last album is From a Birds Eye View, which dropped in January of this year.

“I’m trying to drop this mixtape, man, so I had to butter up my A&R and get him on a jet in the air right now,” said Cordae while he sat on a private jet. “I’m trying to drop music, man. What we doing?”

"We coming, we coming,” said his A&R Yaasiel “Success” Davis.

If you're an artist, would you rather stay independent and drop music whenever you want or have a record label's financial backing and have to play by their rules?
