Are you tired of hearing the following?
1) Dreams are for suckers get a real job
2) im realistic i dont have dreams or aspirations
3) its time to face reality and give up your dreams
4) yeah i know many people make money doing what you want to do but you wont
5) keep your dream as a hobby and get a real job
If so then this thread is for you!!!!
well where do i begin, this thread can match any dreams you guys might have and have the deepest hottest flame burning in you for it and a drive and
determination for it that doesnt match any other little goals you might have set for yourself, why would they, those little goals pale in comparison
to the big "dream", well mine is to do music, and not just make the music but to produce it and promote it and be in all things music. Ive been
studying and partaking in music for 13+ years, as the years go by my talent and respect for it grew, it grew so much that the last stuff i made blew
alot of people away by it,like wow you came a long way,don forget about me when you make it, even the people who like to give the aforementioned
phrases at the top said i was great, and its been alot of ups and downs in the business,particularly the rap game, ive dealt with alot of
scrutiny,rejection and violence, and i still keep going,very few people dislike my style, yet i still have people in my life that dont support me on
what i want to do, they dont see the intense drive i have for it yet they see the lack of drive i have for alot of other crap they have out there,
they prefer me to go the rout of settling to feed the belly of the beast that killed their once hopeful dreams,but not me, im an underdog from hell!!!
ha ha ha, i dont care what position im in,ill do what my heart burns for and have to get what i have to say out,by any means, like that movie hustle
and flow, that movie is very true to how it is in the music game coming up.
What alot of people dont understand with doing music professionally theres steps that need to be taken, you need to earn a name first of all, and to
do that you need to master your form into your own presence and character and style, you need to undestand clarity,content,and charisma as well, once
you got that goin and your feeling great about your gig you have to write a bunch of songs,and have instrumentals for them, then you can record, but
its not over yet,you still have a ways to go, think of your first songs as building a portfolio, you have to have a record of who you say you
are,proof that you do music,then you can proceed to work your way up at different venues doing shows and promoting until you get to the point of being
talent scout bait, but never sign the first offer,make sure you would be getting your fare share of your work so that they dont get more out of it
than you do, shop around a bit, and eventually you can have your own label and studio if you choose to be independent, me personally i choose to be a
producer in the long run
Thats my dream, and what built this country was hopes and dreams, what killed this country is when people killed their hopes and dreams and rolled
over to feed the belly of the beast that killed em. If you have a talent for something chances are there is somebody out there willing to pay you for
them, dont let talentless people or people who choose not to use their talents to have a more fulfilled life doing something they love, tell you to
give up your dreams because they never had any or gave up theirs, no one ever got anywhere giving up
