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
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.
