Why New Musicians (Rappers) Fail: Three Reasons and Solutions

Written by prof

Continued from page 1

This problem is very common among new rappers.

Inrepparttar hood you might hear a 12-year-old kid spitting a raw 16 bars. That’s because 12 inrepparttar 149893 hood is like 21 anywhere else.

A lot of new emcees are hesitant about what to actually write about because of a lack of experience. They haven’t really seenrepparttar 149894 world first hand. It’s hard to write good raps when you don’t really know yourself yet…because part of what a rap does is communicate torepparttar 149895 listenerrepparttar 149896 personality and character ofrepparttar 149897 rapper. Still, not knowing who you are is nothing to be ashamed of.

So whilerepparttar 149898 21 year old fromrepparttar 149899 outskirts of New Zealand may be intelligent, he may not be quite sure he knows who he is, what he stands for and what really matters to him, perhaps precisely because he thinks too much.

Onrepparttar 149900 other hand,repparttar 149901 12 year old fromrepparttar 149902 slums of Tokyo may be illiterate, irrational, and arrogant, but he has already come to understand himself…he’s comfortable in knowing who he is (regardless of whether he is wrong or has limited his growth).

The Experience Factor - Solution:

Have fun, live, read, and think about who you are.

The best way around this obstacle, really, is just to put yourself into various situations, open your ears to knew ideas, learn your history, etc…Allrepparttar 149903 while asking questions, analyzing things, finding out what in this world matters to you…

Everyone gets around this problem eventually, but for many it’s too late. Try to understand who you are at any given time, and spit your rhymes in that image…amped up a few notches…that’s what makes it art ;)

3) The Focus Problem:

We’ve realized that a lot of people who are interested in rapping are simply naturally artistic and expressive. I personally have always enjoyed drawing since I was a child and could always appreciate a well-written book as well as various types of music.

Being as I grew up inrepparttar 149904 “hip-hop generation” I naturally gravitated towardsrepparttar 149905 art form of rapping. I loved it,repparttar 149906 rhyme,repparttar 149907 rhythm,repparttar 149908 meaning and wordplay…

However, I actually dove into my obsession with rap before I fully developed any of my previous interests.

There is a negative side effect or problem that comes about here.

An aspiring rapper, for example, might be naturally more skilled at or inclined to being a poet, novelist, journalist, public speaker or other type of musician. He or she might then decide to pursue an interest in rap, essentially ignoring their other talents. This is not fundamentally problematic, however…

Rap is NOT (contrary to some beliefs)repparttar 149909 same as poetry. It is poetry and more. There are innumerous factors involved in making good rap music. One factor isrepparttar 149910 fact that it is a form of music…which separates it from other forms of literature on a number of levels.

Furthermorerepparttar 149911 skills necessary to writing well, speaking well, etc…are all forgone if one decides to skip these optional outlets for expression. This is a HUGE mistake.

The Focus Problem - Solution:

Stay on track and stick to what you’re good at.

This not only applies torepparttar 149912 above-mentioned outlets of expression but ANY outlet of expression. Dance, art, ANYTHING. You will learn tremendously from these. I can’t even begin to explain how much you’ll be missing out on if you decide to forgo these means of expression.

Everything that you learn about being a good public speaker, for example, can be effectively applied to rap…whatever you learn about developing a good storyline…can be used in rap, non-verbal communication techniques you might subconsciously pick up in dance class…they help in rap…the list goes on and on.

So there you have it, 3 ofrepparttar 149913 biggest reasons why new rappers fail or quit…

Another additional reason why rappers fail to succeed is that they don’t fully understandrepparttar 149914 business of music. Our section www.thestateofhiphop.com/rap-industry.html can begin to help you understandrepparttar 149915 workings ofrepparttar 149916 music business. We’ll refrain from further detail until a future article.

Until next time, stay onrepparttar 149917 grind and you should be fine…

See you around!

Women Are Not Aliens

Continued from page 1

Both sexes have a basic need to feel wanted, loved, and cherished. Don't be afraid to do things to show your lady she's loved. Go ahead and leave her little love notes where she's sure to find them. Present her with flowers every now and then "just because". Be kind and caring toward animals, young children, and elderly people. Demonstrate to her that you are capable of being sensitive and nurturing and she'll soon realize that you'rerepparttar sort of man she could fall in love with because you're capable of loving her in return.

If you can show your soft side to a lady and make her feel special and cherished, you'll find this has a boomerang effect and she'll reciprocate by saying and doing things that make you feel wanted, loved and cherished as well. Remember, those are basic emotional needs for everyone and you should never neglect to inject those feelings into your relationship every chance you get. By doing so, it makesrepparttar 149810 biggest difference inrepparttar 149811 closeness you'll develop with her.
