MUSIC

IN TODAY'S SOCIETY IT SEEMS THAT MUSIC IS MORE PREVELENT, BUT YET, THERE IS ALOT OF MUSIC OUT HERE THAT IS NOT NECESSARILY MY CUP OF TEA! WE HAVE ALOT OF TALENT HERE IN INDIANA, YET, NOBODY REALLY NOTICES US. THERE'S ALL THIS TALK OF 'WE GOT NEXT' OR 'WE BOUTA KILL THE GAME' BUT NO ONE'S REALLY DOING IT YET! IN ORDER FOR US(MUSICIANS) TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL WE HAVE TO MAKE MUSIC ACCORDING TO SONGWRITING STANDARDS : CHORUS, VERSE, CHORUS, HOOK, VERSE, CHORUS, B-SECTION ... THEN WE HAVE SOME OF THE ARTISTS THAT BELIEVE IF SOMEONE DOESN'T LIKE THEIR MUSIC, THEY'RE HATIN! TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO WRITE SONGS WITH DIFFERENT CONTENT, IN ORDER TO GET OUT THERE, IS A DIFFICULT TASK, BUT IF YOU CAN TAKE YOUR TIME AND CREATE ALBUMS RATHER THAN MIXTAPES .. IT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED. SONGWRITING IS 1 OF THE SKILLS I CAN SAY I TRUELY POSSESS, AS WELL AS OTHER ARTISTS MAY TOO, BUT ... YOU ALSO NEED A GOOD MARKETING STRATEGY - BECAUSE WITH GOOD MUSIC AND NO STRATEGY OR PROMOTION, YOU'RE A SITTING DUCK! I'VE BEEN MAKING MUSIC AND PERFOMING AND RECORDING FOR 13 YEARS AND I STILL DON'T HAVE IT DOWN PAT YET! IT'S ASHAME THAT TALENT WON'T GET YOU FAR NOWADAYS, THE GAME IS FLOODED WITH ARTISTS WHO WANT TO SOUND LIKE LIL WAYNE, SOULJA BOY, RICK ROSS, ETC. 1 OF THE THINGS I RESPECT IS AN ARTIST WHO IS THEMSELVES, AND BY ARTIST I MEAN MORE THAN RAP, HIP HOP, ROCK OR ANY OTHER GENRE, IT'S ABOUT LIVING THE LIFESTYLE... JUST LIKE THERE ARE 4 CORNERS OF HIP HOP .. THERE ARE 4 CORNERS TO EVERYTHING! FOR EXAMPLE, I WRITE MY OWN MUSIC BUT, I ALSO WRITE POETRY, I DRAW ... VISUALS ARE EVERYTHING! IF YOU THINK LIKE AN ARTIST, IF U WRITE YOUR OWN MUSIC, IF YOU SCRIPT YOUR OWN MUSIC VIDEOS, IF YOU ACT, IF U DO POETRY OR ANY FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT ... YOU ARE 1! SADLY, THOUGH, I HAVE BECOME THE JACK OF ALL TRADES AND MASTER OF NONE! PEOPLE SAY "PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS" BUT I'M SAYING "PUT YOUR ART WHERE YOUR MIND IS" , BECOME 1 WITH EVERYTHING YOU DO...DO IT 100%, MAYBE YOU WILL BE THE NEXT 1.
