Motivation Monday: Nipsey Hussle’s most effective approach for a successful album
As an independent artist, it can be difficult to create an album on your own. Major labels in the industry have control over the profit and the promotion for their artists. However, despite these obstacles in the way, artists can still create beautiful art that can become successful.
The late artist, activist and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle shares that the most effective way to create an album is to create without being confined within the parameters of a genre. The “Hussle & Motivate” rapper believes artists should strive to create a concentrated, next-level art regardless of it does necessarily fit into conventional genres of music or not. These genre criteria set limitations on artists’ creativity and place themselves and their art into boxes.
To be successful with an album, the three keys—“powerful words, incredible music, sincere delivery”—are universal elements to albums that become highly popularized and critically acclaimed. A great album can be listened to by any and everyone, regardless of people’s genre preferences.
FOCUS ON MAKING THE MUSIC YOU WANT, NOT TRY TO FIT IN WITH A GENRE. STAY TRUE TO YOUR ART & SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW.
