"You don't really fuckin’ need a label anymore; you don't need a major label, you don't need none of that shit. If they're not absolutely working as a promotional company, as an engine to promote your music every single fuckin’ day. Because you're on it every day. Your management, your publicist, your team is on it every day. So when you sign a contract, you better be damn sure that they have obligations to work your shit."
MGK has also been in the news for taking shots at Interscope. Kelly claims the label forced him to record "Invincible," a song he did not want to make because he felt he would be "selling out" just to have pop-crossover appeal.
In a digital age where musicians have more platforms than ever to promote themselves and distribute their music to the masses, are the major labels turning into extinct dinosaurs?
