The road to music riches is littered with people who became distracted by the lifestyle and ended up washed out, forgotten, or even dead. Even before you make it big, you will be constantly surrounded with the temptations of drugs, alcohol, and other vices. You will have admirers and so-called “friends” that you may feel you need to impress by spending money and showing off.
If you want to make it in the rap game, or any part of the music industry, you’ve got to resist the temptation to use drugs, drink too much, or overspend. You must keep your eyes focused on your goal of succeeding in music, or you will end up like so many others have before you: broke and with shattered dreams.
