There are a lot of talented artist from all walks of life, so you have to be creative to stand out. You are competing with everyone who thinks just as you do, "I am the best." I hear so many artist mimicking and sounding like artist that have already perfected a certain sound and that means, yes, that lane may be only opened temporarily, but just how far do you actually think you will go with a already created and established sound? I'll answer that, not too far. As a artist, you constantly have to think about what's next. Stay thinking outside of the box. Sounding like already established artist as well as artist you hear on the radio, will not put you in a place to, as everyone is saying to "secure the bag." Not saying that your song won't "blow" or "take off", but when that happens, and the patterned sound fades, what's next? You will always be known as sounding like such and such and the originator of that particular sound will keep growing, but you will have to find your own lane because now, that lane is closed and you have no purpose in that lane. So again I ask, what's next? Artist, find your own lane? What does that mean? Create something that hasn't been heard or done before or if it has been heard or done before, add your own twist, flavor, etc., making it your own. Find your own style. Develop yourself as a artist. Trust the Process!

Get away from "Yes" people. Yes, there are a lot of artist out there that make very hot and dope music, but all of your music isn't necessarily hot. Get away from family, friends, and anyone that will just go along with the flow and tell you "yeah that's hot" or "that's a hit", or even "everything you record is hot." Do you actually know how a hit song is selected or even made? It's that 1 special sound that will literally light up a room when heard, or when that record is played it will instantly make everyone around vibe to it, then still if it's not worked properly, it still isn't a hit, oh and sorry, just because your song is played a few times here and there on the radio doesn't make it a hit or hot either. Surround yourself with people that are going to be honest and give you the honest truth whether you like it or not, with everything that you do. Those that are not truthful are actually hurting you because it doesn't allow you room to grow, work harder, as well as hinders in you perfecting your craft, because everything that you record is not hot. Once you start introducing yourself to a uncomfortable audience, only then will you see just how hot that record really is. So, surround yourself with honest people who want to see the best in you as well as for you. This will only make YOU a better artist.....
