    Being a criminal may give you "cred" as a rapper, but it isn't exactly what BB wants for its image, is it?
    It's about selling devices. What device one uses doesn't mean that you align your views with their views. Put a device in this guy's hands and all of his fans will want what he has.

    That's it.

    I'm not suggesting that's true from Lil Wayne, but his money has to come from touring, because record companies pay quite little to artists, even best-selling artists (well under $1/album is the norm), which rarely covers the recording costs (which are billed to the artist). Today's music artists get their money from their percentage of concert ticket sales and merchandising at concerts, and most rappers spend that money on cars and "bling" and have little to show for it when their career is over (3 years on average).

    The music industry is BRUTAL.
    They are their own record label with a distribution deal from Universal. They actually keep a hefty chunk of sales.

    Samsung must be okay with it, because they hired Jay-Z. He pleaded guilty to stabbing another man in 1999. So what exactly does that say for Samsung's image, Troy?

    What is the image BlackBerry has again? Is BlackBerry selling phones by the truck load? Pride goes before a fall. Hope you don't conduct business with that kind of attitude.
