The Black Keys' Patrick Carney Calls out YouTube on Unfair Artist Pay

The battle between YouTube and artists is an ongoing saga, and the latest to shut down the video service over artist royalties is The Black Keys' Patrick Carney. The drummer hopped on Twitter to share his candid thoughts on YouTube and how the site doesn't pay artist fairly. He tweeted,

"Give me five minutes on @youtube and I probably can find 250 songs that are available which the artist isn't getting paid for. At least. A sell out in my book in 2016 is anyone that takes a share in a streaming company who also is an artist and doesn't advocate for fair pay."
