So I’ve had to step back and look at the way things are and look at myself before I fell into the trap and noticed that, a lot of yall just are in hip-hop to profit from it financially. Not saying nothing is wrong with making money off of what you love doing, what I’m saying is its wrong to make money off of hip-hop if that’s ALL you want to do. Theres a thin line we all walk and yeah, I want to make money for the work I put in. BUT, at the same time even if I don’t make no kind of bread from it, I’m still at the end of the day going to continue to be apart of Hip-Hop because I love it.
See some of you just jump in not knowing your history on this, some of you come from a different element of hip-hop and want to be Emcee’s, cause its rare to see a Emcee switch up and go to being a DJ Bboy or Graff Writer. Some of you are not good at any of the elements but support Hip-Hop because you truly love it and you know what THATS DOPE! Your not taking room up, and you can sit back away from the politics of it and enjoy what you see and for that I PERSONALLY THANK YOU! We need more people like you out here for reals.
All im trying to say is, love what you do and do what you love. Promoters throw shows and lose money on em all the time and yet, they still throw shows because they love to do it. Bboys crash all the time and they still practice that same move because they want to prove to themselves they can do it. You will get what you put in but you gotta love this or else your taking up room.
