    Start Your Own Record Label

    Here's a game LWHQ can play. We'll have 15 people start their own record labels with a budget of $250 million and the purpose of the game is to fill up your label's roster to create the best label possible.

    The artists will be dropped randomly, the artists will be from these three genres Hip Hop, R&B and POP. There will also be producers that will be dropped randomly throughout the game as well. You can also sell your artists.
    I will notice if you are trolling other members by just putting up ridiculous deals and if you do that I will remove your offer for fairness. If your deal exceeds 15 mil+ from the last offer than it is void.YOU MUST, GO UP 1.5 Mil from the last bid.


    Here's how you win the game. After all the money is spent, the labels will be evaluated on the following criteria: future sales, future critical acclaim, longevity, and cohesion.

    This should clean up everything and make the game much funner and easier than the other thread.

    When you want to bid on the Artist/Producer, you must do it in this format, Everyone Just Have One Post.

    Like This:


    Big Artist: Offer
    Artist: Offer
    Artist: Offer
    Artist: Offer

    You Can Just Write 'No Offer' If You Don't Want Them.

    Re: Start Your Own Record Label

    I will be Dreamville records again.

    Edit:

    Jay Z, Eminem, Kanye West, Nas, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce-40 to 45 Mil

    Lil Wayne, T.I., Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Usher, Alicia Keys-30 to 35 Mil

    Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Shakira, 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake-25 Mil

    Drake, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Blu, K.R.I.T., The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Tyler The Creator, Earl-15 to 20 mil

    Producers-10 Mil

    Lil B, Waka, Gucci, Soulja Boi, Arab-1 to 5 Mil or a bag of chips

    This is an idea of a ranking system/ Bracket that each artist will be in. This is just some of the artists that will be used as well. Each artist will still be dropped randomly, that is just where bidding should start at for each artist so no crazy ass numbers will erupt.

    Props to Frank for helping me with the brackets/rankings by the way

    I was doing them 5-10 minutes after one another earlier, I could spread that out or make it closer but it takes a little bit of time to update the OP and what not, it really doesn't matter to me though.

    How we did it earlier was good IMO, but we need more people on. Shame that HQ is active most when it's 3-4 am my time.

    Re: Start Your Own Record Label

    One question Cody:
    As a result of time zones how doyou make it fair fir members who aren't online?

    Or is it just bad luck for them?

    I know if I can't bid for Drake, Weeknd or 40 I'll be quite put out.
