Holla at your boy man.
True ^ so how'd you just up in leave.. you had someone already where you were goin or you just went out on your own
After all this time fuckin with this music, i dont even know what to think about it. I all see it as, is an outlet now. As far as music as a business, pshhh fuck that, this shit is sooo not reliable it aint even funny. Now, I just have gone back to the roots. I do it when I feel like doing it, and purely only for self-gratification. I got a cool job, decent apartment and 1k a month left over purely for savings. I took all the time energy and focus I had for music as a business and transfered it into other shit like investment strategies, personal finance, arbitrage etc. The older I get the more i realize there is mad shit I could learn that can change my whole life faster than music will ever. So I keep hustlin but only when it serves me best, and i treat music like my bitch, I only call her when I need some pleasure.
2 years later, as I type this sitting in my hotel in London all I can really say is thank god I stayed in school. Living in LA and ATL, going to different studios, meeting different artists, A&Rs, managers, and just niggas really showed me more and more how sucky this game is. I am more able to deal with corp. america than I am with the music industry.
Now, I still do music and still go hard at it but I read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" too and It changed my entire outlook. Music is now just another investment honestly, no longer my main jumpoff. I still have my company and I am a way better musician than I once was but that shit doesn't matter in this industry. Info's post was basically my music career story these last few years and I don't have the personality to wait on other people to get my paper. I am a Leo that's an only child, I can't do that shit.
My degree has opened up so many doors for me. Corp. america is easy after you get to a certain level. London is gorgeous too. If you have time, leave the country....for a while. Seriously.
