INDIE ARTISTS, PRODUCERS, & LABEL RESOURCES
Nielson Broadcasting is best known as the company that rates the popularity of television programs. In addition to T.V., the company is also diversified in several music entertainment properties, and is the owner of Billboard magazine, as well as SoundScan.
SoundScan is an online service that tracks the sale of music and video releases. Any music product that carries a barcode is eligible to be tracked by SoundScan, if the retailer elects to report their sales to SoundScan. Although this is no longer the case, Newbury Comics elected NOT to report their sales to SoundScan for years as they thought that their competitors could use the information and negatively affect their own sales.

SOUNDSCAN IS IMPORTANT HERE IS WHY..... 
COPYRIGHT YOUR MUSIC OR LOSE IT..... 
ASCAP & BMI REGISTER TO PREPARE FOR ROYALTIES
If you’ve ever read the liner notes of an album (especially back in olden times when CDs were still prevalent), you probably noticed either “(ASCAP)” or “(BMI)” next to each music publisher’s name. If you’ve ever wondered what those jumble of letters means, then this article is for you.  What is the “right of performance”?
When you create a musical composition, copyright law grants you certain rights (see my “Copyright & The Music Industry” article for a broader discussion) and one of those rights is the right to perform your work publicly. Now, this right doesn’t only refer to when an artist performs a song live at a club. ....                                               
                                                                                
When you submit a song for copyright you’re simply proving the date of submission of your work. The fine folks of the copyright office don’t sit around listening to every submission to see if they’ve heard it before. That would be an impossible task.  When you write or record your song, technically, you’ve created it — and thus you own the copyright to it. By submitting a song to the copyright office, you’re protecting your music simply by acknowledging the date of its creation.
It’s also important to note that certain aspects of your song are not protected even if you’ve registered the copyright. These include:

The Blood & Water double album is truly a work of art.  The intro to the album leads you to believe you are about to embark upon a journey, the intro is not misleading to say the least.   
The General introduces us to a new sound accompanied with a serious message.  The project starts out with the song "America", a high energy track with a blatant rebuke to the ways of America.  It almost sounds like Rock Rap.  The album is full of high energy tracks like "SEVEN" and "Find Yahshua", which features Gutta Most Generals', Change & Young Wesson.      
The album then flips you upside down with heartfelt ballads like "Lord I Love You", "My Eve", and one of my favorites "My King".   As if this isn't versatile enough, Tatem gives us some Neo Soul,  "Set Me Free", is a personal track that touches on Tatem's struggle and mission.  The Gutta Most live band kills this one and Tamara & Starr backs General with the Harmonies.  Enjoy this album yo.  This project has everything even Spoken Words like "Selah" and "Where Is My Father".  The entire double album was written & produced by General DeShawn Tatem.  Enjoy the video above as Tatem and his Gutta Most Generals/Yahshua Team remind us where he is from.
