Wait!! are you among the millions of fast rising artiste out there still thinking that someone will come and sign you? well let me tell you straight, it will likely not happen.
Times have changed, the music industry has evolved and record labels ain’t taking uncalculated risks anymore. For a label to be interested in you now, you must have done enough for yourself. I’m talking loads of quality songs, a fast growing fan base & basic recognition in your locality, if not, next.
The truth is, business is business and no one wants to lose their hard earned money, so you the average guy, with maybe just 2 or 3 songs and no one even knows you, not even your friends support you, how do want a label to pick you up? Doesn’t work that way.
My brother, the “record label” mindset won’t get you far. You have to take charge of your carreer and push forward, build a team, work hard, pray too and before you know it, someone like Don Jazzy will just send you a Dm or call you personally to talk business.
Now don’t get me wrong, record labels ain’t bad, they’re just business companies too. You just have to be doing numbers or showing great sign of a good investment for them to take you serious.. that’s all.
