    I came a channel called swaggytracks , you probbaly heard about it.

    I was thinking that this guy was doing this just for fun and stuff, turns out he is monetizing the content and for my surprise songs are not getting copyright strike like what??? The song in question keeps getting monetizing for fullscreen and so he is getting his share. Then i checked social blade and it estimates a minimun of 4.2k a month. I'm speechless.

    So this dude doesnt make anything just uploads the song which are made by someone else and then he just gets money out of it? Yeah I know full screen has a 60/40 split but still.

    2 questions:

    1) how the heck he doesnt get any copyright?
    2) how he got into this? LOL

    He finds noob artists, sends them a message, offering to promote their video "Heyyy dude do you want to become famous ? Let me upload your song to my channel ... I have 800k subs" and the young artist, dreaming about the big $$$ replies "Sure buddy !!! No problemo".
    Uploads the song to his channel, puts a few relaxing pics with Windows Movie Maker mmmm I mean Sony Vegas + his chilling watermark and $$$ :D :D :D actually dunno if this is how it works, it's 4am here wtf Good Night.

    He doesn't get copyright flagged because he's asking for users' permission to upload their songs and share a split of the profit with them.

    Lol, yeah those . . . well, the artists don't exactly hand him the rights to the song, correct? So I find that may be their best bet on YouTube (at least when starting out); direct some traffic to their channel and maybe start getting views, likes, subs, etc.

    Best regards,
