Once you build a habit it no longer draws on your will power. If you have bad habits , like always playing video games, or always eating a lot of sugared out foods, what happens? Out of habit! Bare with me…. Or at least a great song idea with lyrics written to it you can add to your catalog. Above all else, that is practice towards mastering your skill. You are now 2 hours better than your friends who rap.
Your Favorite Rapper Doesn’t Care About Hip-Hop
Wait, Where Did All the Cool Rappers Go?
As strange as it might sound, different rules can apply to different styles of music. For instance, where I live in Calgary, Alberta, country gigs tend to pay a lot more than rock gigs. I know this from personal experience, as well as talking to fellow guitarists. The rap space is one where unique rules certainly can apply. Not every rapper has — or will have — so many ventures and revenue streams to draw from. You need capital to start a business, and you must have the smarts to run it or put the right people in place to run it for you if you want it to be successful. So, how do rappers make money? Much of it goes towards the label, distributor, manufacturer, retailer, and studio or production costs.
What do rappers do all day?
Here at Studio 11, we meet and work with a lot of unsigned, aspiring rappers on an everyday basis. Because Hip Hop and Rap are a multi-billion dollar industry, one of the most frequent questions we get asked here in the studio is what should the artist do with their music in order to have the best chance of launching a successful career. So the following suggestions come from our years of experience and association within this industry with artists like Chief Keef, Crucial Conflict, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, R Kelly, Twista and the managers and producers who have worked with them as well. For what its worth, I used to wash cars at a Toyota Dealership before getting involved with audio engineering and production in the music industry. I had to make the hard decision between keeping the same job which paid me, or to quit and pursue my passion by starting as an unpaid intern with a major production studio in Chicago. From what we learned, advice from the major industry players you hope to someday work with, along with intelligent planning, muscle and a dash of luck, is the one of the best remedies to start a blossoming career.
What do rappers do all day? Real question. I've never researched this but I know KTT's got the answers. We know they do tours, make tracks, albums, promo, whatever but really what do they do all day? They're always seen hanging out, having fun, on vacations and chilling mostly. We see a lot of these guys, like Meek, riding around just relaxing having fun. Drake's always on FIFA, it really seems like a lot of the "bosses" are actually doing a lot of boss work running around while the big rappers just hangout. Of course picking up girls, partying, whatever. How much time do you think they actually spend in the studio?
