theres 500 "artists" on HB who'll never catch a buzz or get attention no matter how good you make that thread title. people will look over it. and if you even get them to click on the boring ass title, theres an even smaller chance theyll give you a shot. Titles that go from "Artist name - Song name" to "EXCITED CAPS OF HOW IM ABOUTTA DROP SOME SHIT" and everything inbetween all suck. and they only suck because no matter how hard you try, the music forums here in HB are dead. both aspiring artist threads and all, Dead. 

then you got C styles, jesus christ. people refuse to tell him he sucks cause they wanna see a second porn video. and he somehow gets passes for dropping songs in the off topic sub forum, which is a smart move considering the music forum is dead.

then theres twitter, where anyone with some hundred followers and a DAW thinks theyre gonna be famous. same goes a bit for tumblr. I cant stand it man. you cant post a good link of your jam on twitter cause no ones gonna gaf. theyve seen 50 of those before your link saying the same shit, ABOUTTA DROP SOME HOT SHIT. they cant give all of those songs a try. music is just so watered down and wasted now, it sucks

No doubt there is talent somewhere within these bases but you really cant get too much exposure trying to do it the same way as everyone else. 

Another thing, nowadays I feel like A LOT of people are trying to pursue music as a last minute "I suck at everything else I need something trendy" resort. Today at school some girl Ive known since middle school had my boys name and number in her notebook. and when I pointed it out she said "oh you know him? I told him my bf makes beats so Im gonna link em up". You know how many times me and my boys all together have heard somebody "makes beats"? not taking away that there is potential decentness within the racks of ideas, but EVERYONES doing it. when did this shit trend so hard before? I remember when I was a kid in high school playing guitar, not EVERYONE was tryna pursue music. mad kids lowkey tried rapping but producers didnt exist, so their bars over industrial beats life really didnt make it. 

Am I really gonna give up on music? Im not sure cause its been a passion of mine for too long. but best believe Im not resorting to annoying everyone whos seen the same shit attempted dozens of times daily. I dunno what my niche'll be if I ever find it, but Im starter than that. you dudes make your graves bigger, fine by me. 

and whatever happened to other forms of art? how come no one I know is painting or acting anymore? does no one realize the greatness of acting and other forms of art out there? Im just really tired of music being watered down and being in the same category as bandwagoners. Fuck this. not scared of competition, its just social networking has made it too easy for kooks and other dumb acts to get out there and now everyone thinks they got a chance of being signed.

Since the barriers to entry into the music game has substantially decreased, it is obvious that the competition/ number of people in the "Game" is going to increase, along with all the crap that comes with it. There are very talented people who are making beats and music, but need to gain that following. It used to be that before the only way you would be successful is if somebody signed you onto a label. The company would then pay you what they could spare from the major labels producing income, so your only chances to succeed were to build that following. There was no internet such as twitter, FB just the radio. Now with FB and all of the technology disposable at a kids fingertips along with the decrease in employment, everyone wants to try it out. There will be an increase in the number of "Actors and Artists" thanks to technology such as youtube, vimeo, pinterest etc. But only the super dedicated that are willing to actually walk the talk are going to succeed.

If you believe in your music then you would keep plugging away at it. It don't matter how many other people are doing it. Just do you. With that being said...check out my soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/byens-o

are you complaining that there are too many artist or not enough good artist? Either way i dont fuck with your opinion. Sure there are countless of "rappers and beat makers" out there, most of which i will never listen to or care about a day in my life. But i dont go around complaining about it, you are not established, nor creditable enough to complain about others who is in the exact same boat as you. You may think their music is crappy, talentless, and took no effort but i can think the same thing about your music. Imma tell you why you are where you are now and why others are successful artists. Because they weren't sitting around complaining cause things are not coming easy enough for them, they were out hustling to get where they are. C-styles is in no way a good rapper in my opinion but i have a lot more respect for him then i do you because he's actually out here grinding trying to make a name for himself. He doesnt care if most people on HB take him for a joke. He's still doing what he loves to do. All that excess hate is unnecessary.

I feel you OP...
Everybody is a rapper/producer these days. Actually putting effort in your music, uploading it and not getting no type of feedback sucks.
Which is why I just make music for fun. I've stopped sharing and tweeting my links now. I just upload them, tweet them once and let them sit for people to discover.
My twitter sends an automatic "welcome dm" to new followers with a link to my music also.
To get somewhere in the music thing, you need to kiss ass and befriend people who have the connections to blogs, beats and important people. Or do something silly that gets you on WSHH and makes you go "viral"

I'm surprised no one referenced youtube struggle rappers spamming the comments in every music video. Anyways, I like the excitement of releasing music, every once in a while ill run into someone on campus I don't know who is like "hey good job on that __________" and I'm perfectly fine with that. Don't need to be any more famous tbh & I don't wanna make a living doing music anyway. Whatever though

run in your own lane. if you're really about making your own music, don't be concerned with others. just do you and move on. all that energy ranting could be put into making more music.

There will always be people knocking you down for anything you strive to do. The internet just makes it easier for people to voice their opinions. I respect anyone that has put some time and effort into creating something, because it takes a lot more energy into showing the results, then simply telling someone it sucks.

lol, there will and always was people trying to make music,  now you just able to see them more with social networkig, but still that means absolutely nothing, most people quit music after a year, mostt people suck and noone will ever listen, its really a slim chance to be heard and a verrrrrryy slim chance the music you create hold any type of quality. considering rap has been around for decades, (which means what your doing chances are someone already did it) and millions of artists have come and gone that none of us will ever hear of
