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.

ASCAP & BMIREGISTER 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”?

By submitting a song to the copyright office, you’re protecting your music simply by acknowledging the date of its creation.

GUTTA MOST GENERALS:GENESIS
Prod. by Selah Music:MIXED & HOSTED BY DJ EVIL DEE
DeShawn Tatem & Change Wesson is giving the world a mixtape that crushes the albums of today. The Genesis Mixtape displays a level of Hip Hop that is rarely heard in today's music. This project could easily of been a classic release in the 90's era. Unlike mixtapes that are released today; this project has all original beats. A new sound. A refreshing one.
Each emcee approaches the track with a desire to destroy it. The lyrical content is revolutionary, hard core, heartfelt and brilliant.
Tracks like Familiar, Real Life, & Colors will touch your heart and inspire you. Songs like Lion King, War Is Upon Us, & Nightmare On Elm Street will ignite a resistance against the wicked elite. Tunes Like Shut It Down and Move One Way will show lyrical dominance.
This project is astounding to say the least.
DeShawn Tatem and Change Wesson of Gutta Most Generals partnered with DJ Evil Dee of Blackmoon to give the world a masterpiece. When asked why the title is Genesis Tatem said "because this is just the beginning". True Hip Hop heads will love this project. "Genesis"
