your # 1 priority should be to get a summer job for 2008. Im sure there is plenty of rich white folks in Connecticut who need their lawns mowed and hedges trimmed.

Yo, do you have any audio? cuz how i see it, the only way you can make a respected money-making label is to first establish yourself as a talented musician with something to offer, then you can build a solid label on the foundations that your a talented rapper with ideas and goals, if your just some lil kid wantin to make a label thats jus pipe-dreams..

what you dont know already + the fact that you dont have a built up hustle of any type right now = it aint gonna happen.

yeah, yeah i got audacity, shit is straightfoward to use but it depends on the comp your recording from, i got a 24" Imac so it sounds better then usual, i recorded "loadin the defences" on audacity, if you want some raw beats you can use, pm me and ill give you the links for some HOT, HOT beats that are cool to use, if you got talent i want to help you bro, cuz i mean your 15, and if you got skill, shit can be worked on till your my age then you can release some real fire!!!!!

^^nigga i aint walkin to bozrah or farmington plus its winter fuck u think dis is? lol but rly man you dont think i cud do it?

u could do whatever u like , just don't think like a 13 year old . U feel me?
Im gonna be real with u , I became conscious of my life when i turned 18, before that i wasn't fully conscious of the world , Cause i wasent thinking right , I was thinking like a little kid , BUt you are a kid urself so its hard for u to realize what is good for ur future , Look even today when i think of something , i stop and i really think cause i realize my mind that is 19 is inferior compared to a older dude , Do u understand what im trying to say?

all im saying is stop ,STOP and think and really think , cause right now all ur thoughts are covered with ur age .
Im not putting u down , i used to be like u , just like everybody else ,

and look man u can do whatever u like in this world , I mean common people actually went to MArs , MARS! thats another fuken planet , So that means u can do whatever the fuk u want , JUST DONT GET ADVICE FROM PEOPLE THAT ARE NOTHING in this world , LEt them talk out of their asses , go up to the person that is "up" in life , and ask him for advice , He knows more then u cause he has experienced more then u , Listen to him , dont listen to a bum .


look dude people are gonna put u down , Because they cant do it themselves so they think u cant do it ,

u can do whatever u like but just dont let ur age block ur thinking , If u come up with something , really stop and think HARD HARD HARD ..




let me repeat this again , never ever ever listen to people that never made it , they will put u down , its in their nature .

peace

^ consernin what you said, i will be honest i have noticed that when a cat is good at something, an other cats think there godz gift (but there really delusional dudes), they try an rip the shit out of the good guy, call him wack, say his beats are wack, just to put him down cuz they know he is better then them....

i know what this might sound radical but i would say, that rappers shouldent take advice or comments from other rappers...........

Luda dropped some jewels on this topic in a couple of tracks, first things first : this is a music BUSIness, read up and do your research, if the business side of things fail all the talent in the world, alone, is not gonna do you any favors. Focus on the craft as an artist but focus on the label as a businessman. Once you get a tax id you can then open a checking account in your name start depositing money, start paying yourself, essentially, you're gonna be the label's first employee then you work your way up from there. ....This is all stuff that you can take time on, 14's a great age to start though, practice all you can, learn all you can. You're gonna need to know about things like broadcasting rights, publishings, royalties etc............go in with the mindset that You WILL Succeed and learn what you can to prevent from being fucked overlater on down the road.
