AVOID THESE MISTAKES IN YOUR MUSIC CAREER!!!!!! 1. Picking the wrong beats! – There is nothing more complained about from my a&r friends then this… In order to get to the next level of your career, you NEED THE RIGHT BEATS! If you are underground that’s fine, but if you are going MAINSTREAM?? You Need a mainstream HIT! 2. Be Realistic – Everything doesn’t happen how we plan sometimes, so this is important to your career. Most people run at the first sign of failure…. Being realistic will keep you on your feet. People fail you, opportunities don’t work out sometimes, situations just happen. Keep your head up always, but BE REALISTIC! 3. The Way You Promote Yourself – You’re the reason your music succeeds or fails. (Some artists don’t promote at all, some artists wait for labels to do everything for them)Always promote!!! 4. Don’t Kill Yourself In The Pursuit Of Music-‐ You can’t write a whole album in one night! You gotta build, nothing happens overnight.
5. Invest – Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself. You are the CEO, the A&R, the Artist, and most important… the Investor. If you go the cheap way, you will get the cheap results. 6. Don’t worry about what it looks like – I know sometimes it gets hard… It seems like things just won’t work out, people stop believing in you, and hell even you stop believing in you……. FORGET THAT! ALWAYS KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE! Failure is only reality when it is excepted by you, so don’t except it. You fall, but you get right back up!!!! 7. Tweeting, Instagraming (“In The Studio”, pics, etc) – Its all good to tweet “in the studio”, and taking pics, if you are putting out product often. If all you do is tweet and you have no product done, how do you expect a fan to take you serious? 8. Not Having Your own Equipment – This is a common fatal problem. A serious artist needs to have their own equipment, recording, mixing, and mastering their own records. Now if you don’t, it doesn’t mean your not serious, you just might not know. You need to be able to record when you are inspired, not when time is available in the studio.
Remember the night when you had a dope idea, and you had to record it in your phone, or computer. Got to the studio and couldn’t finish because you only have 3 hours booked…… This is a problem, and it will hold you up. You don’t wanna be held up, you wanna be moving, recording , promoting, at all times. You can’t promote if you have nothing to promote. Take everything I say and apply it. You will see results. I am dedicated to your success, I want you to WIN! Matter fact you already WON! You are a great artist, with great ideas, with your own equipment, promoting and making money, living your dreams!!!!! I Believe in you! LETS GET IT!
