So we have done a couple stories touching on how Jim Jones has been teaching a music business class at a local Brooklyn high school.  I got to give it to Jim for pro actively giving back to the community.  I think it’s a lot more impressive when celebrities put their boots on the ground as opposed to just throwing some money at a charity.  These clips are a great introductory view of the music business.  What they don’t talk about is how a lot of these major music companies are spending more money then they are making.  That’s called being in the red, and it’s why the music business is in turmoil.  Spotted at Fuse.

At least Jim admitted he’s 10% talent and 90% business.
