The music industry is a strange place driven by its own rules. It is often the place where popular groups are lauded for stealing material from lesser known acts. It is a place where notorious underground artists can write cheesy hits for artists it would seem they despise especially when their ghost-written efforts are way more successful than their own. Often, from the outside fans and aspiring artists get caught up in the hype and lose their way. They forget that there are lawyers, technicians, agents, vocal coaches, designers, managers, engineers and plenty of money involved in taking advantage of the casual listener’s naivety. A lot is invested in maintaining the illusion that is “professional image,” and they are not about to let some hood-rat rookie bring down the industry with their bad manners and lack of tact. As anxious as players can be to get in the game, there are certain things that will get you shutdown, locked-out and possibly killed. Here’s our top 5:
Nice way to end the weekend right GoJu Nation?? I know how much you guys love da digi-singles chart. It’s the only equalizer that gives you the actual climate of the music industry. And literally you can connect the dots of a successful artist and their singles etc. Where else can you quantify if Tyga is a legitimate artist or no (in my Sammi Sweetheart voice)? Well by looking at this weeks chart its looks like (with Rack City) he has his 1st gold single. So the grinding with Chris Brown in his problem period along with Tyga always repping himself on every Young Money/Cash Money appearance has paid off. Let’s see if Cory Gunz can keep the trend going. If you’re keeping count GoJu Nation… that’s 3 successful artists on Lil Wayne’s label along with Drake and Nicki Minaj. Very strong.
