    I am a female rap artist and I have a producer that produces my music for a flat rate of $200 per song. He ask that we sign a contact for when the song gets radio play he wants 50% of the profit. Should producers get that much percentage when dealing with artist?

    That is more of a personal/business question, not a legal one. You should consult with some of your friends or other artists and see what kind of deal they have worked out. You do not have to agree to anything but once you sign the contract, you are bound by it. It also seems a little odd that he is asking for such a large increase in pay. Unless he is an amazing producer, or regardless, be very careful in making your decision.

    This is all depend upon the contract, if you like to agree on this contract then he can get the 50 percent, the remaining thing is on the producer profit they charge it on the artist reputation if you are new defiantly he will give you pressure.
