    After reading the breakdown it's clear to see which artist is in the red with their company. The moral of the story is, in the climate that we're in with the music industry major record labels should not be spending so much marketing dollars based on hype, beef, bad energy, and bad decisions made by record executives. Let this be a lesson learned...
