Can a rapper become famous through IM? What do you guys think? Share/Post your opinions here.
In my opinion, nope. Only like 1 in a thousand rappers make it big.
Of course. Let's say you're the best rapper in the world, but have terrible marketing. You'll never get noticed. Imagine if you're good and you have internet marketing on your side. Now that formula equals success my friend.
I disagree i really think that a rapper can become famous through IM. It's a new day and age in the music industry. You don't need a label to promote your music anymore when you have things like youtube and itunes. There are guys out there in all music genre's making a killing online that are label-less and simply promoting themselves.
if you'd like some examples in the hiphop world check out these two rappers LIL B and Mac Miller. I believe both are signed though now.
bottom line is promotion is promotion whether your passing mix tapes out of the trunk of your car at the flea market or passing out links to your youtube video, once people know your name and like your music, it's on.
I feel like we should offer IM services to local rapper's, label it as "Promotion" and then charge them for the traffic they recieve. It's offline IM and is very profitable. $100 for every 50,000 views ..you know, stuff like that. It not only helps you with easy money, but it can also help the rapper actually get out there. Fair to say?
This is my dream. It depends on many factors. How well you can relate to people, how good your flow is and whether you have a great way of getting your name out there. I would spam every rap youtube vsubscriber etc..
A few names come to mind...
Something like this for example ( a local rapper from my city). I've talked to him and he has the skills. Also willing to pay (I'm from the boston region).
Soulja Boy started his career through marketing himself on YouTube and other hip hop communities online.
do your thing then.
it's all about finding people that want what you got.
it doesn't matter who you're marketing for or to as long as they pay.
might want to build him a site too, he doesn't seem to have too much net exposure.
Well i would add something to the equation :
Quality + Marketing + X factor = Success
X factor is unknown can be assimilated to luck, proper timing, proper networking, karma, universe will or whatever.
this guy has like 200k FB fans so I am convinced anyone can become famous. no, the video is not a parody/joke.
You guys might appreciate YTCracker - he was a big mailer back in the day, and now I think he just sits around drinking and making "nerdcore" rap.
hehe LIL B really is a testment to IM. He actually has some good songs but for the most part he seems like a giant troll. The dudes is bringing in a lot of money though. The name of his album was "I'm Gay", the dude is seriously taking trolling to the max. Promotions and Gimmicks....
Anyone who is, knows or represents an artist who you think has potential, PM me and I will give you my Skype and email. If I feel like they are worthy of being spread over multiple social networking websites, I will possibly work with them, with some sort of agreement or contract.
I have yet to do this for anyone and this is the first time I have offered this, but I'm very confident that I can make someone go viral all over the internet in a week or two. With the right talent and the right marketing, the possibilities are endless online.
LOL ! OMFG ! unbelievable !
I'm even tempted to bad rep you for spreading that crap
and if you thought that last song was wack....
I have many artists I manage, will skype you.
