You’re Killin’ Me: Upcoming Rappers

Recently, I was approached by a young fella’ trying to make it in this Hip Hop game. The Circle K lights bright. The air filled with dreams of costly clothes, and cars. He offered me a disc in exchange for 2 dollars. I laughed. No, I kid. Being the humble dude that I am, I asked him if he knew who I was. Quez, the #1 blogger in the state for the #1 site in the world, topnotchhiphop.com. You’re here trying to sell me a demo? Although true, once again I jest.

Seriously though, what’s going on with these dudes selling demos in the streets like it’s the mid-90′s. What’s up with these rappers with MySpace links on their private twitter pages? You’re killin’ me. It’s 2011. Not only are these guys killin’ me with their stupidity, they’re killin’ their own talent and success with thoughtless marketing. Listen up.

Selling demos out in the streets might seem like a good idea; except we’re not in the 90′s anymore. The fans, the money, and the A&R’s are all listening to the internet. Get on a computer, start tweeting, facebook-ing, YouTube-ing, and creating a network of friends, and fans. When you get online make sure to make all of your profiles public! It kills me to see “rappers” with private twitter profiles. How are fans supposed to connect with you? But when you get online,  please please stay off MySpace.

So you’re smart enough to get off the streets and have decided to put yourself online. If only MySpace were still relevant. I throw up in my mouth when I see dudes using MySpace to promote their music. Nobody uses MySpace! Meaning nobody is going to listen to your music, meaning nobody is going to share your music, meaning you’re never getting signed.

Tell your friends, tell your mom, tell your neighbors that these upcoming rappers need to quit selling demos in the streets, un-protect their twitters, and get off MySpace.  Because they’re killin’ me, and you wouldn’t want to kill your favorite blogger, would you?

Upcoming rappers, you’re killin’ me.
