Hating? or Just Being Honest
What’s up MM! Back with another one y’all. Wanted to ask if its hate or being honest when someone doesn’t like what we do? Let’s face it.. everyone is not gonna be the best beatsmith to ever touch a drum machine (maschine). If that was the case then everyone would be doing it. Oh wait, everyone is!
“Either you slingin’ crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot”. That one line B.I.G. said in “Things Done Changed” did indeed change the culture forever. Now, those that aren’t built for the streetlife or athletically gifted have another way out the hood. The music industry. 20 years later everyone is still working that hustle. Not to mention the software developers have made it even easier to get into the game. Just have a computer and you’re good to go. Don’t get me wrong, it’s tons of dope producers out here but its some horrible ones too.
Its great to have self confidence but its just some shit we’re not good at, not now, not never. Ever since the “Hater” phenomenon the not-so-greats are running away with that phrase! News flash; If several hundred people tell you you’re not good its probably not a hate issue. Thats a popular “opinion”. It still doesn’t mean give up. Just mean you have to find your audience.
Sometimes we may just be better suited in another area of our passion. Take me for example, yeah I’m cool at making beats but I feel I’m better at helping others learn how to make them (I’m just being honest). Notice that it’s still in the same field just something more natural for me. So explore all options.. who knows the other thing you try may just be your calling!
In closing. Whether dope or not, people hating or being honest; there’s over 7 billion people in this world.. someone is gonna like what you do! Music is all subjective anyway. I’ll leave you guys with a vid below as a classic example. Until next time catch me everywhere @AGGOTBEATS
