I’m convinced that most aspiring rappers don’t really believe in themselves. Let me tell you why:
99% of young rappers make songs & drop mixtapes hoping that SOMEBODY ELSE hears them, believes in them & “puts them on”. Most young rappers aren’t out and about and in the face of the ppl who can REALLY change their lives – the FANS.
You dudes rap & hope you’re good enough, but you don’t believe in yourselves. If you believed in yourselves you’d be doing the things that will spread your music & message – instead of spamming ya fb & twitter friends that wack ass trash all the time.
Yea, 99% of y’all talk a good game – but you’re not puttin’ ALL YOU GOT into your wanna-be rap career. You’re paying ur money to open for major artists & hoping that THEY take you to the next level. You’re buying features to promote ANOTHER RAPPER on YOUR song hoping HIS fans validate you. But if you BELIEVED in yourself – you’d take that money and buy a beat from one of these HITMAKERS or better yet – spend that money on REAL PROMOTING.
I’m VERY critical of you clowns & fakers for a reason – y’all like lil kids beatin’ on pots & pans – drowning out what we really wanna hear……but at the end of the day the 1% of rappers who are hard workers & smart grinders will start buzzing…..and that BUZZ leads to paid shows, downloads, merch sales, youtube views & all the other streams of income available to today’s artists.
I keep tellin’ y’all this is a business – learn how it works to be successful….or you can be “Bozo the Rapper” – heyyyyyyyy – it IS your life.
