Proof of Credibility:
What we have learned is that you have to be open to other peoples opinions. You can’t really get upset when they give you feedback because no matter who you are or what the type of music you put out is, you will always have people pick out flaws.
You just have to learn to either take it and use that to improve or brush it off and keep pushing forward.At the end of the day you have to be the quality controller of your own music the pickier you are with yourself, the better you will get on putting out nothing but greatness/quality. Hope this helps!

I think the most important thing to know in hip-hop is the history of it. You need to know when and where it started, what were the conditions in which it was born, you need to learn about all those who came before you and changed the culture. You need to learn who is important in the culture and why.
Don’t rap for the money. Rap because you are hip-hop and you have a message. Be you and have fun.
Stage Name: Scott King/Q da kid
My theory about the rap world is that whatever message you give to people, they either get to know you and your story or they take it as if you try to keep your life apart of your music because what you’re going thru is probably what millions are going thru. Anyway, you have to make people comfortable with you as a person and always feel like they can relate to u… The game isn’t easy. I’ve had to deal with def jam etc. Those will laugh with you, but as soon as things turn it’s like they never met you before. It’s all business, never friendship. Remember That!!!! learn that it’s all about your talent , your presence and your message…Be Yourself!!!
