i’m not a successful rapper. i’m a horrible self-promoter and i flub all possibilities of making connections. i also dont feel like i’m even remotely popular. i don’t really mind tho. I’m enjoying myself. i would suggest that you find your favorite way to write (pen/paper, phone, laptop, some crazy ill tablet), find somewhere where no one else is (personal preference) and just bang some shit out. some songs come out cool right away. some you have to edit or possibly throw away entirely because they’re crap. definitely experiment with drugs and/or alcohol while writing and recording. don’t get wasted tho because you’ll waste everyone’s time in the studio. performing can be fun but sometimes its brutal. unfortunately the only way to get better is to do it hella times. keep the cheesy “on my rap grind” speak to a minimum perhaps. now i’m just ranting. sorry. just make music that you like. it’s supposed to be an extension of you.
