Reasons Why People Don’t Come Up

A lot of times many new rappers realize that they don’t seem to be going anywhere. They feel as if they should be successful by now but the reality is that they may be doing things wrong and they don’t even realize it.

Most of the time people tell themselves what they want to hear just as an excuse. Well, in this post I’ll be analyzing a list of the top reasons why people don’t come up when trying to make it in the rap game.

1. You Don’t Believe in Yourself

If you’re serious about rapping and making it big and you know deep inside that you’re not going to make it, then guess what? You wont make it. If you don’t believe in yourself why should anyone else believe in you?

You have to go into it 100% and know that one day you’re going to be up there and be one of the top hip hop artists. Rapping (just like most things) is highly mental. Meaning your mind has to be in the right place and you have to feel motivated with a burning desire to achieve success.

I know everyone has their ups and downs when it comes to motivation but like I said before, if you know or feel as if you won’t make it then don’t even waste your time. Being negative is the main reason why most can’t…

2. No Time

Making time is extremely important. Remember, you’ll get out of something as much as you put into it. With rapping it’s no different and all of you know that. You have to be able to set some time aside every day and dedicate it to rapping or to something that will help you get closer to your goal or to attaining success.

If you have time to do other unnecessary things, then you definitely have time to get serious on the mic. Make it a habit to get into a routine where you do something productive everyday at the same time. For example, if you’re always free from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., then try to always work on a song or make a beat at this time.

If you get into a routine it’s always easier to get used to things. This will at least help you to make some time and get productive. Of course, the more time you make the better but if you’re a busy person then any little will help. Then again if you want to make rapping your carrier then you’re going to have to make time.

3. Rapping as a Hobby

It’s okay if you started rapping just for fun and if you want to keep rapping just for fun then that’s okay too. Now if you want to actually come up and you’re still taking rap as if it were just a hobby, then you won’t get very far.

You have to take rapping seriously and treat it like a full time job because treating it as anything less will result in no success. To get ahead with anything you have to put in hard work and you have to keep going. If you study at all the successful rappers you’ll find that they all had to work very hard and I know once they knew what they wanted they weren’t rapping just as a hobby.

The difference between successful rappers and the rest is that the successful rappers were persistent and they knew that they had to give it their all and nothing less. Do yourself a favor and pic up the mic knowing it’s a full time job. After all, when you come up, that will be your full time job.

4. Making Excuses

Making excuses is something everyone does when trying to find an easy way out. “If I had more time I would tear the mic up.” “I could come up if I really wanted to.” There are just some of the many excuses new rappers use to cover up their mistakes.

Instead of making excuses you should figure out what it is that you’re doing wrong and find a way to fix it. Don’t sit there thinking and talking about why you’re not getting signed or why you’re not making it. Don’t waste time on these thoughts, you should instead focus on ways to get signed and ways to sell your music and get recognized.

I don’t remember the exact quote but it goes something like this, “the most unsuccessful people, the most sad and unhappy are the ones that say tomorrow the most.” Don’t make an excuse and leave for tomorrow what you can do today. Get up and go after it!

5. You’re Not Willing to Invest Money

I know not all of us have the money to just use for whatever you want but you’re going to have to be able to spend some in this case, if you’re serious about spitting full time. To make money you have to spend money and since you want to make money off rapping in the future, this principle applies here.

There are definitely some costs that are involved when in the music industry. Try to save some money and stop spending on things that won’t bring you closer to your main goal, which is of course coming up. Try this, for every $100 dollars that you get, try to save at least $30 for your rapping expenses.

You won’t get very far if you don’t have equipment or the right tools to make you succeed. Some of the tools you will need are included in my products page. Like I said, I know you can’t just throw away money but where there’s a will there’s a way, so start spending your money wisely and on the necessary things only.

There you have it, some of the main reasons why people don’t come up. There’s many more but I cant go into all of those here. For now just try to avoid these and stay positive.
