A lot of artists have 100 plus songs under their belt and still wonder why they haven’t got “on” yet.
So until you know that you’ve found your sound as an artist, don’t try to knock out as many songs as you can in one studio session. Find one record (at a time) that you love, and perfect it. It only takes one hit. ?
Brand yourself. Find ways to separate yourself from the rest. Have a personality that doesn’t distract from your music, but rather compliments it, and ultimately attracts more fans.
Ms. Cardi B is a prime example! People fell in love with Cardi’s unfiltered persona on TV and social media, and when people started to listen to her music, they were pleasantly surprised. Not only that, once Cardi started gaining some heavy clout, she NEVER changed — and people love her even more for that!
And what about Blac Youngsta?
His Instagram videos are beyond hilarious, and even if we don’t get what he’s talking about half the time, he makes us laugh, and we continue to go back to his Insta for more. Best believe, when he drops any posts about his music, that we’re here for that too!
#WordToTheWise is brand yourself as an ARTIST, your music and image goes hand and hand.

Philly artist and FreeNation affiliate, MAINE THE $AINT, drops off a cold new piece with his new project, Humble Beginnings.
“The project was inspired by companies like Apple or Google that both originated garages, I really wanted to create an ode to the “Small Start”. Putting together this project involved me writing from a perspective that would resonate with any artist trying to build from a ground level. After this, fans can expect a collaboration album coming form my FREENATION camp.” – Maine
