 Tonight, we'll be talking about how much artists are charging to book concerts & how much money, time & promotion are involved in that type of production. TSG.com recently took a look at the contracts for some major artists & the results are shocking - even more shocking is the location at which some of the world's most popular hip hop artists are in terms of dollars, compared to their counterparts in country music:

Rascal Flatts $702,500

Kiss $500,000

Keith Urban $487,500

Drake $155,000

Selena Gomez $100,000

Kelly Pickler $ 40,000

Kris Allen $ 12,500

Chris Young $ 7,500

Does this speak to the level of support given to hip hop artists - or does this just indicate higher ticket costs, etc.?  Tell us what you think.
