|What advice would you give to someone starting out in the business?
Make music because it is part of your soul and share that part with those around you. Sing it because you love it, remember the beat of the music within you is your very heart beat. Cherish it, protect it, and share it with others. Never make it a business.
dont do it for the money. do it cause you love the lifestyle of musicianz.
you dont have to be rich/famous to be a musician.
you gotta make money for fuel, transpo, hotelz, laundry and food.
Make sure u are willing to breathe,eat and shit hiphop all day everday
Stick with it...
have God on your side.
And just know it wont be easy, all businessess start out slow.
But just have a game plan and youll be fine.
Write what you feel, feel what you write, and be rich enough to buy an audience.
Get out there and make your wish happen.
Don't let the b******s get ewe down
Remember why you started,because you love music.
Save your money
Don't be in this for fame or fortune (have a mission)
Don't try to be or sound like another artist
oh dear god you didn't say that did you?
Can't answer that right now, need to get a guy on that!
Never look back and the bad things just focus on the future ahead of you
My advice to anyone starting out in this industry is to 1. Get Educated 2. Get Experience and in that order. Definitely read the book All You Need to Know About the Music Business by Donald Passman, it is an industry standard. For Songwriters I would definitely recommend The Craft and the Business of Song-writing by John Braheny.
The more you know, the less you can be taken advantage of.
The second thing is to get out there, shadow people who are already doing what you want to do. Work with others who have the same interests. Practice not only makes perfect, it makes permanent.
Go get em!
Never give up!!! Collab with like minded people who are out with the same goal!!! U don't want to waste UR time if u tryin to push forward!!! And be prepared to never be rich!!! THIS IS A INDUSTRY THAT IS 1 IN A MILLION CHANCE!!!! Only do it if u love it!!!!!!!

Take a long, hard look at whether your willing to work really hard and live with the disappointments that will inevitably come. And please, please make HONEST music.
Dunno I guess always have a back up plan, u know like a trade just in case wife and kids come or the IRS or whatever
