“I had a platinum album before I signed my deal,” 21 explained. “I own my masters right now. Every song you’ve ever heard, I own it. I got a 70/30 split with my label.  I got 70 they get 30. I make more money off my album sales than I do off touring. For a lot of rappers, most of their money comes from touring. My deal ain't no deal when you're like, 'damn I wish I was independent."
