So, in this internet age of music, Hip Hop/R&B/Underground artists put out a lot of free music. Originally I started a YouTube channel for lyric videos just to promote artists, and I only make them for free songs. All the songs I make lyric videos for are songs the artist themselves release on free mixtapes, without involvement of record labels. Most of my videos have anywhere from 20k-100k views currently, and some of them even get 1k views per day. I hadn't even thought of monetization til a message from YouTube popped up saying "Monetize your videos and grow your audience. Become a YouTube Partner today!" when I uploaded a new video this morning. So, can I? Any possible repercussions?
