If you could pick any artist, which career would you follow as a blueprint to your success?
There are so many wonderful artist who have put in the work and if I had to narrow it down to one person I would have to say Nipsey Hussle. Not because he was just trending but I love how he remained independent and promoted himself. Selling records for $100 is pure genius to me. Some may say who would buy a record for that much but who would not. Considering all the money an independent artist has to front for just one song let alone 10 or 100, it takes so much sacrifice.
When I see people give away there music for free I understand, who doesn’t want to be heard. My question is at what cost? Not only did he put a twist on how he distributed and sold his music but also by helping his community providing opportunity where there is none. Not many celebrities do that at all. Some may donate to a charity but to literally place business in the same community where they grew up and help the people, now that is something that I dream of doing one day as well. The music touches the soul of a man and actions touches their heart in turn changing there minds to want better for themselves.
