Rappers: I’m kinda confused….
What makes a total stranger “owe” you a listen??
What’s this “chance” you say you’re seeking?
I ask this because every struggling rapper says that nobody wants to listen or give them a chance.
Please realize that when u choose to be a rapper, you join MILLIONS of other wanna be rappers that are chasing the same fans, attention, fame, money, recognition, etc. as you. You’ve made this choice to seek fame or fortune from music. Is it the fault of the people if your approach is wack or your music is trash or your artwork is amateurish?
As an aspiring artist, you must capture the attention of the people in a way that encourages them to listen to your music and share it with others. It’s not illuminati, or the major labels, or hating dj’s that are stopping your progress. The main obstacle in the way of your success is YOU. You’re the one who refuses to learn how to monetize your music. You are the one trying to use outdated concepts to market your music & brand. You are the one not taking full advantage of every stream of income available to you as an artist. You are the one not working your hardest or doing your best to be successful. That’s YOU
I’m not gone keep preaching to y’all tho. I’m just tryna understand: What IS this “chance” that you’re “owed”? How do you figure anyone owes you? Lastly, WHY are you “owed” a “chance”??
