Looking back at his life, musician, entrepreneur, and rap artist Fadetheblackk doesn’t have any regrets. “I feel like my story, along with where I’ve come from, makes me different. I have a very strong belief that there are very few who could have taken my path and come out the way I did.” What does he mean by that?
Well, It seems like he had a rough upbringing, but what all these things gave him was the drive and the desire to become one of the premier up-and-coming rap artists around. Fadetheblackk proudly says, “My music career is really taking off. Every day I am waking up to conference calls between lawyers and managers trying to ink deals.”
Fadetheblackk gives us his advice on how to break into the music industry
Don’t become complacent:
“You can’t just talk about what you are going to do, you need to do it!” Fadetheblackk says. “Don’t just post videos and hope you’ll get followers. Get out there and make yourself known.”
Make Investments in yourself:
“If you are wanting to be the best rapper in the world, then you need to get the right kind of equipment,” suggests Fadetheblackk . “Not only do you need the right mixing board and microphone, but you also need the right kind of camera for your Tik-Tok and Instagram videos.” Believe in yourself.
“There are going to be a lot of haters out there: telling you that you aren’t good enough or trying to tear you down.” Fadetheblackk encourages future artists to keep their eyes focused on their goals and drown out the background noise.
Find out who you are:
“Find out what you’re good at sooner rather than later.” If you write better than you sing or perform, then do that. Songwriters can make a lot of money in this business too. “The key,” Fadetheblackk suggests, “is to devote yourself relentlessly!” Never give up until the goal is accomplished.
“Too many people start strong and then give up once things get hard.” Fadetheblackk points out that people interested in making it big, no matter what they want to do in life, is to “never give up until the goal is accomplished.” Trust your gut.
“You know yourself, what you’re good at and what you need to do better,” says Fadetheblackk . “The trick is to trust your gut and go for it!”
Ignore the Unsupportive People:
“I already said this before, but there are going to be people who only want to bring you down. Get them out of your life now!” says Fadetheblackk . “Don’t let others’ opinions of you keep you from what you’re trying to accomplish. It’s your dream, not theirs. Don’t quit and keep pushing forward.”
With his debut EP set to be released, Fadetheblackk points out how following these steps have made him a force to be reckoned with. “I am a different kind of monster when it comes to reaching my goals. I’m relentless. I’m dedicated and I do not play around when it comes to my business.
I’m extremely serious about everything that I do, and this shit Is not a game to me. I have heart, I have soul, and I have passion. Nobody talks like me, walks likes me, looks like me, acts like me, works like me, hustles like me, dresses like me, or makes music like me. What I’m doing is special. I’m a diamond in the rough, and nobody can duplicate what I got going on.”
