Music Producer IncomeReal producers typically will make between 40k and 250k a year, depending on location.
Some make millions.
Note that when you factor in everyone who calls themselves a 'producer' and not just the very serious, founded ones, that floor drops to about 1k-100k a year. In other words, it is strictly quality-dependent. Anyone can call themselves a producer; there's no licensing or education requirement so the question is somewhat moot.
It depends whether you're Quincy Jones, Babyface, or if you live in Wyoming. The scale is all over the map. Sometimes their take is linked to sales.
AnswerIt depends on his quality of work, marketing techniques, etc. There's no real limit on how much one can earn. It's all a matter of how talented you are and how much you put into it as a career.
Are you thinking Kittie? It may have been 2000, but I'm pretty sure it came out in the late 90's. I'm almost positive it was the Yeasty Girls featuring Consolidated. Great track. Go down baby.
The Murmurs also did a song called You Suck. Which is awesome.
