A lot of times musicians are made to fit in a little bubble. Whatever the FAD is that’s what people tend to jump on the band wagon. But, I am here to tell you that if you stay true to you, you will always come out ahead. Just look at the people who have pioneered trends by staying true to themselves and their music will forever be transcending.
Tupac, Biggie, Kanye, Beyonce, Whitney, Stevie, R. Kelly….. these artist are uncompromising believe me they do not follow trends they set them. So take a look at yourself and your craft are you making music to appease others or are you keeping it as real as possible. Here’s a test to see if you are “Keeping it Real”
1. When you are making music are you trying to HARD
2. When your song is done can someone say hey you sound like _____________ ( fill in the blank )
3. When you play your song in a mix with other songs that are out ( be honest ) do you blend in or do you STAND OUT
4. Are 90% of your lyrics the same as the next artist
5. Are you topics exactly the SAME as other artist
IF you have answered yes to 2 or more of these questions then guess what you are just another wanna be…….. Congrats to all of you original undeniable, undisputed, fabulous ARTIST we are hear to support YOU
