How To Separate Yourself From The Pack

Friend,

Just about everybody I know wants to be a successful rapper nowadays.

To say the market is over saturated is an understatement.

How do you stand out?

Why is it that some rappers are revered for their self expression and some are just brushed off as wannabes?

I think it has to do with the intention behind the rapper.

Why do you want to spit?

Why did you decide to do music?

Be real with yourself.

If you’re doing this because you think blowing up is going to make you look good to your boys, or get you some girls…

You will not be respected.

If you’re doing this because you want to cash out and act like someone you seen on television…

You will not be respected.

There’s nothing wrong with these things, they’re just all secondary. If you come into the game with these goals as your primary, you will be seen as just another rapper.

What’s primary is authentic self expression.

You gotta realize that at the end of the day, this is art.

If you are bringing your soul to your records, you’ll separate yourself.

When you put your foot in your songs, you’ll separate yourself.

When you step out and say something that everyone else is afraid to, you’ll separate yourself.

Bottom line, the way I see it:

You separate yourself from the pack when you take risks.

You gotta have the balls to come out and do something no one has ever done.

You gotta have the balls to come out and be you, regardless of what people will say about you.

Do you have the balls to make it or are you just gonna be another rapper?

You have to answer that question yourself.
