    This looks pretty nice, but why is a signed copy £10 more?

    You said this about the Raw Dope Posse, asking extra for a signed copy of their "Listen to my turbo" reissue

Most artists are happy to autograph items for free - Schoolly D, Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock and Chuck D didn't ask me for money to sign a record, they know how to treat fans. Maybe if they're autographed in the first place, at the regular price, you'll sell more. After all, you dudes did one great record a heck of a long time ago - you're hardly legends with people clamouring for a napkin you've used. Put the unreleased material out at a reasonable price and people here will buy it, the OG of your 12" goes for little more - and often less - than you're asking for a reissue. I know I'm reiterating some of the above points, but I think it's worth labouring them. The people on this forum buy records - a lot of records - but don't want to be treated as clowns and are generally pretty discerning.

    Because I don't own the publishing house that is doing this. Because if I did, I'd do signed copies for zero extra money, as I do with copies of Wiggaz, which I own. Because this is their standard MO with all their projects - as it is with most publishing houses. Because their funding levels are pre-set and I don't get to dictate them beyond providing items for the upper levels.

    Still, Pete, glad you feel free to ask me questions considering you didn't have the politeness to respond to my last three emails about the Akinyele instrumentals I provided to you. Feel free to drag up irrelevant 8 year old threads which are about people charging just to sign records they already have - something I'm not doing.

    Only if we reach the goal. I'm getting a lot of people emailing me saying, 'where can I cop it' - literally nowhere unless people back it. The funding pays for the initial print run, photography, legal clearances and some of the giveaways (some we're just providing ourselves). We don't see a penny in profit from the initial funding run or print run - we get a percentage of gross profit of general sales once it's funded and gets distributed by Penguin/Random House. If it gets fully funded, I have to do the work on it, write it etc, if if then sells zero extra copies I don't see one penny - at all.

    Drew. You’re a white man, in a black man’s world.

    (I assume) you have used your “economic privilege” to acquire many items from Hip Hop’s history over the years;

    Now you want people to pay £10 for the “privilege” of your signature on this book of your acquisitions?

    Question; do you consider yourself the Howard Carter of Hip Hop?

    PS: the words I quoted about paying for a signature were your “own” words before – and everyone can read those clearly.

    PPS: Don’t even start me on the your “Akinyele” request – I have ALL the emails right here.

    PPPS: the last email I got from you was nearly 3 years ago.

    Have a “wonderful” day…..
