Expect nothing. Care all you want, do all you can, work as diligently as possible, but.expect nothing. If you give it all away and they give back a drop, dont let it get you down. Expect nothing. Do it anyways.
But I hate the red tape of the music industry sometimes. You can’t download the songs I post on Tumblr, but I also know if I post most of what I wish to share labels will get mad. However, some websites [like the ridiculously popular and awesome 2DopeBoyz] post cd quality streams and downloads of top 40 hip hop tracks the day they leak online and get praised for it. Its strange, but I guess I’m just not in that place right now.
If the only way you can steal it is by ripping it from a stream, more power to you in my opinion. Streaming should be allowed as long as downloading isn’t. Most people can’t stand webrips of anything for more than an hour or so and if you think that hour is enough to drive them away from buying, then maybe you should focus on a better quality product.
So, I’ll keep posting music that is at least extremely close to release, BUT here is a list of some of the awesome music you should get excited for I can’t post yet:
Sing it Loud
Beneath The Sky
More details to come as available.
WTF is in the water St. Joesph/Cass County Michigan? I graduated with 98 other people and over a dozen already have kids. More have been/are engaged to be/are currently married.
Sometimes I think to myself, “I win” because I made it out of there. Then I see my four white walls, empty bed, and empty wallet and think…. “at least there’s not a kid.”
In the end - REALLY? This is ridiculous. How did I survive a place filled with so many people who’ve fallen short of their abilities? If you’re happy, fine. If not, I thank you for your efforts in taking responsibility nonetheless. If you’re one of the 10+ guys who have kids by these gals and have left them already because you’re “not ready for this” - please go die.
