Everybody Can’t Rap
Finally the long overdue topic where everybody feels the exact same but hasn’t been touched on yet, the rap game. Easily the most crowded business out right now that’s flooded with the trash.
Rap is an art and talent given to a select few but these days has lost so much value from the lack of talent attempting to test the waters. We all know about a 100 niggas who out the blue attempted rap careers and failed tremendously because the simple fact it’s just not for them and they had to find out the hard way. The lifestyle is what draws the attention but people fail to realize that’s not the only way to live the lifestyle.
Why can’t everybody rap? Easy question because it’s something you have to actually perfect and master by studying and being consistent. It’s no originality niggas dead step in front of a mic and sound exactly like the artist they listen to the most, sit and listen to your local rapper after reading this and watch he sounds like the Migos or like he straight out of Chicago. That last statement goes back to the lifestyle that’s all people want so they turn to rap thinking it’s gone come overnight by imitating what’s already being done. The rap game is a business where people have longevity when they separate themselves from what everybody else doing you following a trend not gone help you get anywhere but where you already at.
How come niggas who trash don’t know their trash? Smh this could be its own blog. The #1 blame for this is yes men, their very own friends who know they nigga making the most BS but since they cool well say it’s hard just because they don’t want to jeopardize their friendship. This shit hear creates a monster, the people around this man gassed him so bad when somebody does come and gives the honest opinion he thinks he has haters and gone go either harder dropping more trash with a motive. Don’t let this man be a “local celebrity” where the city rocks with him heavy and know he not like that rap wise he feel like he untouchable anywhere when nobody gets down with his music outside the city. Then you have attentions seekers, grown men who want to be in the spotlight by any means so they try the rap game out. You call these lil hoes no man should do anything for attention but we now live in a world where a lot of dudes not manly at all these days.
Not knowing the business side of the game goes right along with not knowing how to rap they both hand in hand. If you are a decent rapper or trash rapper nobody going to listen to your music if you nonstop posting your links on social networks, that’s not working you spam and worrisome af. You want people to give your music a chance approach them respectfully in their emails or try to set up meetings. Studio quality is a must! You niggas are not rappers sitting 10 deep in your homeboy crib smoking that’s not a studio that’s a hang out spot. Don’t get it wrong nothing wrong with house studios if the quality high but after you record it in-house send it to off to get mixed and mastered DJ’s not about to play your homemade tracks in the club and your low quality bust their speakers they put all that money into. You want to be taken serious make the investments in your music to let people know you for real about it.
Moral of the story just because you love music and want to live you life doesn’t mean it’s something you can up and start doing, the people on today because they have an actual love for the art and was willing to make the sacrifices it took to become successful. Everything not meant for everybody aint no way around it. For those who can rap and making the sacrifices to get where you want I salute you and you get all my respect because I know it has to be frustrating seeing all these others doing it with and motive besides the love.
