Donning his other persona as music entrepreneur, Steve Aoki, known worldwide for his energetic electronic dance shows, said Wednesday he doesn't expect to get rich anytime soon from streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music.
"They're still an income stream. You can't say that we don't make money off of that because we do," said Aoki. "For myself, I don't … got to get that check to make it through. It's definitely more of a pension plan."
He's also a Grammy-nominated producer who's collaborated with A-listers including will.i.am and the band Linkin Park. His new album "Neon Future Odyssey" was released last month.
