o.1 NHIP HOP LYRICS TO BUILD A BRAND ON H to the izzO V to izzA; three letters short of being called the messiah, this is a man who with his words has built a towering castle on the hill that is celebritydom, amassing a great fortune along the way. Enjoying great crossover appeal, inimitable swagger and worldwide recognition we dissect some of his lyrics on Kanye West’s Diamonds are Forever Remix to discover his thoughts on how to become a brand. 1_”HAD TO GET OFF THE BOAT TO WALK ON WATER”_ The first step is the most important;putting your faith in yourself and the product you’re putting out there is the hardest and most scary thing but can prove the most rewarding. If you do not attempt then you will never know whether it is viable or not. So do not be scared to get wet as water is a source of life. 2_”I SOLD KILOS OF **** AM GUESSING I CAN SELL CDS”_ life is a series of experiences attained on a daily basis even the most minute and insignificant today may be the one that saves you tomorrow. So use that which you know to push you further and expand your territory. 3_”DIFFICULT TAKES A DAY IMPOSSIBLE TAKES A WEEK”_Simply put nothing is beyond you and all is attainable. Some things may take longer than others to achieve but if you keep at it it will all fall in place. 4_”AM NOT A BUSINESSMAN AM BUSINESS MAN”_Be the brand that you are promoting. You are the personification of this brand and the image and interaction with clients and customers should reflect how you wan the brand to be perceived. 5_ “IF YOU WAITING FOR THE END... IT WOULD SEEM LIKE FOREVER IS A MIGHTY LONG TIME”_Leave a legacy. Position yourself from the get-go in such a way that longevity is assured. Look towards the future and start securing your future clientele in the present. It is amazing what one might learn if you turn down the bass on a hip-hop track and look past the scantily-clad women in the videos and listen to the words; you might actually learn something.
