How many streams does it take to make minimum wage? Streaming platforms like Spotify now dominate the music business. Social media apps like TikTok and Instagram are changing the playing field. And some artists are moving away from traditional record deals and revenue sources in favor of independence.

And he follows an up-and-coming hip-hop artist struggling to make his fair share just as the coronavirus pandemic hits.
