Aight Chris what needs to change in CHH to make it better or does it need to change?

Chris
Well I try not “fix” a movement. It’s gonna be what it needs to be at the end of the day. I just want to see more originality And I would like to see more churches invest in their talented youth. And treat them like urban missionaries.

Marv
Ok what about the business side of things do you think we are sloppy when it comes to handling business?

Chris
I wouldn’t say that, but I do think we can always be better.
As far as consistency

Marv
East coast question, Sampling whats take on it do to a lot CHH labels don’t want them?

Chris
True, I do much less sampling because of that. One of my producers still loves to sample

Marv
Can’t front though, its frustrating when you got a nice joint and can’t move it to the artist for that reason.

Chris
But he only sample gospel stuff only. Yea bro I know the feeling

Marv
In you opinion, how important are contracts to you. I know sometime I will take them for granted. Whats your spill on it?

Chris
Very very very important.I don’t do much without them.

Chris
Before you actually start anything? Yup
Only thing I don’t do contracts for are recording sessions

Marv
Ok I think that a lot of producers don’t educate themselves on the business side and eventually hurts them in the end.

Yup! I got a lawyer a part of my team and I don’t play that
Cause I don’t like .
