This 2 hour online music industry session is moderated by Wendy Day who's been in the music industry for 18 years.

A little bit about Wendy Day: Ms. Day (A Past "I dO Music" Panelist) has negotiated some stellar distribution deals in urban music. She has played a part in Eminem's deal at Aftermath/Interscope, Master P's No Limit deal with Priority Records, DJ DMD's deal with Elektra, Fiend's deal with Ruff Ryders, Trick-Trick's joint venture with Universal/Motown, UGK's renegotiation with Jive Records, and Ruff Ryder's renegotiation with Interscope. She negotiated the incredible joint venture deal for Twista with Atlantic Records in 1996, which both The Source and Rap Pages magazines called "the best deal in the history of Black music," until she topped her own record with the now famous $30 million dollar deal for Cash Money Records with Universal. She focuses on complete control and ownership for the independent label in all of her deals. Master P was the first artist to keep control and ownership of 100% of his masters for No Limit.
