i started taken music seriously since about 2 years ago and put up a couple of videos and songs on youtube and other sites. the thing is i havent had much success in terms of views or downloads at all and i just cant seem to get people to listen to me. i gigged in a couple of places but the people didnt reeally follow up to me....they were just there in that moment of time chanting woos.
so i decided to change my artist name, delete the vids and start all over again coz that shit just didnt work out even though i thought my songs would be the next big "hit". i mean thats the thing coz most of the songs i hear by unsigned artists sound very much like whats being played in the radio or could be the next big "hit" except they dont have the big 4 distributing em.
i dont know whether it could be the fact i dont like to follow commercial pop and rap styles or just that im not looking in the right places.
i know the industry is really hard to break into and sitting and just typing shit like this aint going to make me discovered overnight, but how do the others break in? And im talking about mainly those shitty artists who cant sing or write songs and have got a free ticket to fame and fortune. They either do one ok cover song and viola - youre signed to RCA or Universal even though there are 1000s of other artists whose musics WAY better.
im mainly a rapper but in an industry like this, my style doesnt fit (coz i dont rap how im going to club, get a girl, sex etc), and if the general public dont hear me on the radio or other places then im just another small mouse trying to navigate through this maze where no one knows of me even though i could have the best music ever in the world (lol jk).
so what should i do? Give up this hopeless dream now or up my game and punch it in the crotch?
