Corey Smith Making $4.2 Million a Year

Let’s just see if I’m understanding Hypebot guest poster and “Floor 64 CEO” Mike Mesniak correctly: Corey Smith, thanks to a total of 95 recorded radio spins this year, giving away much of his music for free, and touring venues like the Cat’s Crade in North Carolina while selling most of the tickets for $5 is making $4.2 million a year from the music biz, and not, say, selling weapons to Saudi Arabia? I understand that blogs don’t generally have fact-checking departments, but something seems a little fishy in the math there. [Hypebot]
