To become a rapper takes a lot of hard work and sacrifices, being someone the world will be familiar with is not an easy task. Before making a choice concerning your talent you need to understand this basic first, there is a big different between making rap a hobby or choosing it as a career. Taking rap as a career doesn’t stop in getting a microphone, laptop or just visiting a random studio, it requires a lot more.
Having to choose rap as a path which will fetch you income for a long period of time takes more than just a causal deal, a lot of effort and determinations have to be put in place. It also takes more than a basic knowledge or melody.
If you are thinking of making rap a fix career, then there are some certain things you have to put in place in other to make it a success, here are few things you should look out for:
Bet on yourself first, then build a team: In other to make success in any area of life, there are some certain things you need to bet on yourself before introducing other people in. you need to be motivated, discipline and perseverance before you can expect people to believe in you, if you don’t believe in your personal growth no one will believe in you either. After having a full confidence in yourself then it will be easy for other to support you and also believe in you.
Understand the importance of proof of concept: If you believe so much in your craft and what you can offer then prove it, don’t expect people to believe in your words alone without actions. Over and over again you have to be able to prove that you are good enough for the world. Being a rapper takes a lot of self prove before the world can finally accept you and your brilliant ideas. When you make good rap music then the world doesn’t have a choice than to celebrate you.
Balance expectation with reality: Never allow your expectations to be greater than your reality, minimize yourself to the things that are achievable. Don’t be quick in expecting things to fall in places, instead give it time and limit your expectation, these doesn’t stop for having a big dream for your career but don’t lose reality in the process of expectations.
Educate yourself: Know that everything in this world requires education not until you have to attend higher education but you can also impact knowledge of rap through different means, don’t just relax on the little idea you have instead strive harder to gain new experience more and more everyday, these will open a great way for you as a rapper. I came across the story of a young rapper and singer named Lil Mosey who had to let go of his educational life to face his music career, he spoke about how he has also learn new things regarding his career even if he doesn’t attend higher education, he still put more effort on learning new concept everyday, same applies to you, you have to educate yourself always.
