I think it's unfortunate that people are dying for the unforeseen and ingenious business model devised by his devious minded master. It's actually a very clever business model, get them young, get them high, smash gold or platinum sales out of them, encourage them to perpetuate the destructive cycle of being in the streets, ironclad contracts sign, hell, most likely a life insurance policy for that extra weekend spending money. Oh and the finale, collect all the royalties without accountability.
