Let’s see what words of wisdom has the Rap Guild shared with us.

People of any age should learn that everything is a business, musicians being sole creator of the product. Young rappers should definitely be prepared to learn every facet of their craft and use all of themselves (talents and Skills) to get to where they wish to go.

Life helped me improve my skills the most. When you come from the bottom of the bottom, You wont survive if you dont use your gifts to better yourself. Use your dreams as your vision, heart as your guide and you should be fine. In life as people we fight our own battles daily and there is always a time where it feels like the waves are too high and the water is too deep, But keep swimming You will get there– faster if you learn to surf!

You have to invest in yourself before anyone will invest in you. As with any business, you have to take risk and deal with down times. No rapper gets big over night without the right people in his corner. You have to develop that corner, and investing in yourself makes those type of people more invested in you.

Also seek opportunity. If you are skilled and are not aligned with the right environment, go find one that suits you. Find people, friends, who recognize your talent and are willing to work with you to help further your career.

What helped me grow was just being true to myself and not forcing any creativity or image. Dare to be yourself and show the world who you are and what you think and that way like minded people will automatically gravity to you because it is authentic and believable.

The world is ready for change, let`s make that change. With my music I want to inspire individuals to think and to change for the better. This is a taste of my sound.

    Hip hop is not a business….

      Hip Hop is definitely a business. It’s a branch off of the music business which is the branch off of the entertainment business. It doesn’t matter how good you are lyrically or how good you sound if you can’t work the business side. Everything from marketing to legal issues and then some. Without business sense and a business plan, you’re just somebody rapping for nothing and blowing all of your money for nothing. You can’t even call yourself a rapper, you’re just somebody who raps, if you can’t sell your music, sell your personality, and sell your ideals. Hip hop is 100% a business.

        Ah, agreed to the point you said 100% man. If it was 100%, people who can’t do songs would make money, and I know you can probably give me a few examples that do that exactly lol, but you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, I completely understand that a rapper needs to be an entrepreneur, but he has to be a rapper too man. You need a good product, if you want to market something and a good product in rap happens when you have skill developed due to your love for the craft. At least that’s how I see it.

        It’s an interesting topic.

          Yeah I agree with that, no matter the business you need a good product. Some businessmen can sell a bad product, but people are gonna see that it’s a bad product eventually. So you need to be able to spit, have a great product, and then sell it. A great sound isn’t enough though, you need to be able to market your product effectively. A bad product with a good businessman will sell, although it will eventually be seen how bad it is. A good product with a bad businessman will need a world of luck to sell, but once it sells people will see that it’s a good product. You should try to be great at both, because a good product with a good businessman will sell, sell, and sell some more.

      If It makes revenue … its a business. It only becomes a problem when QUALITY is compromised, which often we see in “hip hop” or “rap” music.
