The clip leaving the lable from Ray (2004) with Clifton Powell, Jamie Foxx
The sky's the limit, Ray.
I got you a $5,000-a-night raise.
They're gonna up you to 15 per.
Rehearsal in 10 minutes.
Jeff, could you get me some cigarettes?
15 per, huh?
You know, Ray, your contract with Atlantic is expiring in four months.
Yeah, I've got the contract with me.
They're going to double my royalties.
Before we jump back in that pond,
I thought I'd find out what else was out there.
I had a very productive chat with ABC-Paramount yesterday.
ABC? Who told you to do that, huh?
And you know, Atlantic is family, just like the Shaw Agency.
Ray, my job is to get you the best deal possible.
ABC is very interested.
How about a $50,000 advance each year for three years?
You produce your own records.
They'll deduct recording costs and give you
Ahmet and Jerry are flying in tonight, so will you put them off until I can talk things out with ABC?
Well, my mama said, ain't nothing wrong with talking.
Hey, enough of the formalities.
Come on, let's go back into the office, Ray.
I hope I can call you Ray.
I want you to be comfortable here.
Because I'll tell you something, everything is gonna be better at ABC.
Moving from an indie label to a major means you can sell a lot more records, as well as attract much larger crowds, both white and Negro.
Yeah, but Mr. Clark, you know, I've been at Atlantic for so long,
I just want to give those guys a chance, you know, to at least match the offer.
Mm-hmm. Oh, certainly, certainly.
But, uh, I doubt they'll be able to.
We're giving you a state-of-the-art deal here.
Well, you know, since I'm producing my own records, I was wondering if I could uh, own my masters, too.
