When The Checks Stop Coming In: TVT Records Is Bankrupt

The checks have stopped coming in for a particular record label who is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy:

New York based independent record label TVT Records terminated the majority of their employees today. TVT, which is home to major recording stars like Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz, Pitbull, Ying Yang Twins, The Polyphonic Spree and others, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week. It is not known how the bankruptcy filing will affect the label’s release schedule, which includes Lil’ Jon’s highly anticipated album Crunk Rock. Pitbull accused TVT Records of not properly promoting the album and placed most of the blame on Gottlieb. “I’m out here working like a slave, doing things that other artists don’t even know how to do,” Pitbull said. “A label’s there to further and promote your career, but it feels like they just keep holding me back.”

Artists need to get on their grind, because for some reason this industry does not seem too lucrative these days.

    They will get picked up by somebody trust. If Lil’ Jon can go on Wild n Out and make a freakin nusery rhyme(London Bridge) sound like a hit, somebody won’t let him fall through the cracks.

    Stupid “muscians”. The record label game is dead. Nobody is buying what they are selling ie. CD’s. Why would you? It’s all about file sharing and digital downloads … Shawn Fanning changed the game forever. It’s 2k8, you’re living in the late 90’s if you’re still biggin up your “record label” lol.

    We went from 8 tracks to Vinyl to Cassettes to CD’s to Downloads … it’s just evolution, nothing to fear. Otherwise, go ahead and be an analog player in a digital world.
