Rapper’s Delight

If you really want to learn what it means to Market yourself (and work hard in general), I suggest that you check out a specific few to learn a little something about marketing and entrepreneurship and life.

Here are a few that you should look out for. (please add to this list if you have suggestions.)

1) Young Jeezy

2) Rick Ross

3) Birdman

4)Lil’ Wayne

5) Drake

If you aren’t a fan of the cursing, go get the edited version, though it may not make sense.

In their own way, each of these rappers are entrepreneurs and Marketing geniuses. Take Lil’ Wayne . This man made millions off mix tapes by releasing his music and just telling people. His notoriety definitely helped, but something tells me he knows something that can break you. His audience. He simply knows his audience, and if you don’t know who you’re speaking to, you may miss something that will cost you.

In the meantime check them out. Open your ears and remove some doubt.

One thought on “Rapper’s Delight

  1. That\’s some hardcore advice. I encourage also that listeners focus on what they can get out of it – rather than what else is going on that is \”bad\”.
    Sometimes the devil can be the best teacher (figure of speech).
    Also Yo Gotti, Bun B (\”pushin\”), Jay-Z, 50 Cent.
    Generally speaking, any southern rapper that owns his own label – especially the ones that came up with mixtapes.
    50 Cent is the BEST for people who want the most educated perspective. His book with Robert Greene (\”The 50th Law\”) will teach you everything you need to know.
