I Hate the Title, “Artist”

Its one of those things where, I hate it so much I love it. Literally.

There’s a couple of ways on how you can look at it because the title “artist” has so many definitions. Its not just one thing, but many things.

I actually meant it in the sense of music, but you can look at it in different ways.

The frustrating thing to me about this title is that many people devalue it if its not on a respectable level. That’s the crazy thing about being an artist. Having that title doesn’t seem to hold much weight. Sometimes I feel like its looked at as a joke.

Henceforth, the saying, “the starving artist”. It can at times be on the same playing field as a homeless person.

That’s pretty low, but I think its safe to say that no one wants the slightest idea of, let alone the actual title of being, “homeless”.

These points can both be said about the visual artist and the musician/band artist. Without the buzz, the attention, the money backing you, the popularity etc., being an “Artist” can be the worst thing on the planet.

These are the elements, in which are needed for one with the title, “artist”, should have. Its a must. You are displaying an art, your creativity, your concept of beauty.

Artists thrive from the love of the people, the masses.

I love art and I have much respect for artists. Its not an easy thing to have that title. Talk about going through so much hate just to get to the love. Especially nowadays. Supporting that title is not as feasible as it has been in past years.

People are hesitant when it comes to supporting this profession. People can buy a $5 mocha from Starbucks, but can’t or refuse to spend a $1 on itunes to support an artist.

Artists these days have to pay to perform when they are providing a service which is entertainment. Artists should be getting paid for this service.

People don’t realize how much work goes into putting a stellar song together, from production to writing the lyrics to studio time. Then more work is put in to rehearse the performance. Then wardrobe and image is a huge factor. An artist must play their role, their character.

Then there’s the matter of transportation, promoting, getting your name out there. Major marketing is involved. All of these features are not cheap. There are other things as well, but I think these are the main characteristics.

It makes you hate it just thinking about it. This title is different from other titles or at least what comes with it. With this title, you don’t have to have a degree. With other titles that are treated more prestigious, a degree is required in most cases and a combination of experience. Talent alone is disguised by knowledge, unlike “Artist”, talent is open with creativity and we all know that art is objective.

A hard truth. You have to break out of it. There is much love in the title, but the same love that comes with it, is the same love that makes you hate it.

U Gotta Get Lucky!!!!

I hate to say this, because I don’t really believe in luck.

Luck has never really been on my side.

But unfortunately, fortunately, u gotta get lucky when it comes to this music scene, meaning making it into the music industry. Its a combination of being in the right place at the right time saying and displaying the right things and hitting it on the knob.

Its hard to guess what A&R’s and managers and reputable producers and anyone else along those lines are thinking. Its almost like a mind game or something.

Then, you have to be yourself throughout it all. Not being yourself is all bad. I guess it has to be a natural gift or something. Its just crazy how it all works.

Its one of those things where, you have to depend on a coin being thrown up in the air and you’re praying that it lands on heads rather then tails. Lol.

And all the while, you have to continue to develop and master your craft to adjust to the trends, to always stay fresh on your sound, create a new sound and market what you do. Man, its a grind. A serious grind and the crazy thing is, is once you get in, it doesn’t mean anything. Its almost like you have to start all over and you have to be way better then what you were before.

“You’re Only As Good As Your Last Hit!”

4 real. It is true. This thing is about making money and nothin’ but. You are only considered, “Fam-” if you are making somebody else’s pockets fat. That’s what, “Fam-” is. Its all about that bread.

But, you definitely gotta get lucky. There is so much money out here to be made, but it is only available to a certain group of people. Until that door is unlocked, little, if not nothing is going to happen.

But I will say this, God is able. God is greater than luck. His Blessing are greater then luck and that’s what I focus on the most. What God has for you it is for you, no if ands or butts about it. I think that is my best advice for anyone. God will work on your behalf. Sometimes, if not all times, it is not up to us, to say what we want to do or desire to do.

But continue to do your thing. Believe in yourself and put actions behind it. Its too easy just to give up. Too easy. Fight for what you believe in.
