at this point ehhh,none really

as far as upcoming artists no.some might have managers who are well connected but their poor work ethic and attitude once they signed that contract ruined their chances.matter of fact i knew one and his career took off videos everywhere but his poor attitude towards others landed him back in the hood

as far as producers and writers same sh*t.some has 1 or two hits with an artists but cant seem to get anymore placements years after that.the industry is tricky so if you not getting money doing other sh*t you aint gonna be relevant at all.if this was the 90s when there was money to throw on anyone,cool.right now you gotta give em a reason to give you money

Well Im still working at it and im gonna continue to try my group is getting better with every song, our producer is getting better, we did decent in the online contest, did our first photo shoot last week, and were gonna start shooting video's soon. I really think its about the effort you put in it and how much you are willing to invest in yourself.

If I could direct anyone, I think the best bet is behind the scene...ie writing/producing. You have a better shot. Good friends of mine have been grinding for years and have some commercial success, but their money came from writing for the major artist. I guess you're perspective has to be it's a business and if you can make a niche to make you're money do it...the fame if it comes or not, you agenda is different...if that makes sense?

there's no age that is too old unless you're trying to sell sex or youth.

yea writing and producing is where its easiest to get in at.im a writer and ive had success with that,especially now getting tv/film placements.the way i see it its like even though im a writer i want to get money in other aspects of the industry,so right now im working with my partner to do this consultant thing and get producers material placed with artists.it will build more connections and we get a cut and credits off what they make.the fame will come but you gotta make sure you get your $$$ and have something to show for your hard work.even if you lowkey you can still be well known through out the industry behind the scenes

yea it is the effort you put in and how much you invest yourself to make it in here

another thing i see you doign the group thing.word to the wise and because of the nature of the industry,make sure YOU stand out in the group.im saying this because when it comes to groups there is always a favorite member or two that everyone loves from the fans to the a&rs and execs.plus there is always that one group member who doesnt put in alot of effort that the other group members put in.so make sure you are the face of the group,make sure your bars is tight to where ppl only like your verses or play your verses over and over.and if you have a good rapping voice that works as well.also try to do different type of songs even if you dont like it.like you can do a trap song or some other type of song(idk what your sound is so im just thowing stuff out there) just to see if you are versatile and they wanna put someone out your group on an r&b or pop song.gotta go the distance in the game

but you are still young and getting things together so keep it up and meet as much ppl you can in the industry even if you have to goto showcases and events by yourself

Understand..

...I like that you have a plan and have created a niche for yourself...you will definitely get to where you want to be if you can provide a service.

Have you worked at all with people from the A? If so have you heard of Verse, Rock City or Sham AKA Sak Pase? Verse is now an artist, but he and Sak Pase used to produce. Rock City are writers for any major artist you can name...and Sak Pase produced Man Down on Rihanna last album...The industry is a crazy place, but with perseverance & talent..you can get in...
