Referencing his own $250 On Soundcloud (2015) in which six tracks ended up being made with five producers, $500 On Streaming (2021) was a month-long project seeing Shirt in a continuous series of private performances writing and recording raps on beats of anyone’s choosing for a fee of $500. From September 29th through October a buyer could engage with Shirt and email any piece of music they’d like, whether the track was produced or owned by them or not. If a track was confirmed a $250 down payment to the artist was initialized, the final $250 payment was to be made when the track was completed. Once a new track was generated the buyer could choose to release the track on any one (1) streaming service of their choice. Streaming providers included major DSP’s like Apple, Spotify and Tidal, as well as smaller services like Soundcloud or Bandcamp. Further details, rights and permissions were to be negotiated on a case by case basis. Shirt released the video above featuring snippets of music produced by SHARP.
