He pockets 95% of his album sales
Troy Ave is technically independent (more on that later), operating through his own BSB label, so the percentage of album revenue that goes directly into his pocket is obviously a lot higher than the 15% that's standard for major label signees. Throughout the interview, as well as on Twitter last week, Troy claimed that he gets 95% of all sales, with the remaining five percent being split between his lawyer and the distributor.
As some have pointed out, that would mean that no producers, guests, graphic designers were paid for any of their work on the album. Troy chalks this up to A) having all in-house production and B) all of his guests paying respect to him by doing their features for free. Well, the production credits of Major Without A Deal include hip hop veteran Kid Capri (not signed to BSB), Tha Bizness (not signed to BSB) and Chase N Cashe (also not on the label), so either Troy's very good friends with each one, or something's fishy.
Troy also brings up the fact that major labels often spend $150,000 on promo and marketing for albums, and mentions that he spent “less than a fraction” than that for MWAD. One cent is still a fraction of $150k (one fifteen-millionth, to be precise), so the fact that Troy hands Charlemagne a hundred dollar bill at the end of the interview immediately disproves his claim.
