First i want to thank paulakreuzer for pointing to the to forums here.
The artist of the album, be it group or indiviual should the only mention in “Album Artist”. A has no ownership or accountablilty in regards to the album (regardless of if A actually performs on some tracks).
“Confidential is the debut solo album by rapper M-1 (from the hip-hop duo dead prez)”
The artist is M-1 … it just so happens that he is also a member of the group Dead Prez but that is irrelevant.
Forgive me, I know i’m knew here, but just because things have been done a certain way doesn’t make them absolutely correct.
Including “A presents …” within the albumartist field is innacurate and a bit messy. I could be wrong, but I have to doubt that anyone looking for such an album will ever expect that to appear as album artist.
If Shogun Assason is a member of Killarmy than, yes, I would credit it Shogun Assason as “Killarmy presents Shogun Assaon aka Mr Pistol”. Seems similar to when you see credits like, example, Patrick Stump as “Patrick Stump of Fallout Boy”. We don’t credit Fallout Boy.
