A brother once told me a vial piece of advice
"The record company's the pimp,
The artist is the hoe,
The stage is the corner,
And the audience is the trick," – Ice Cube
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Ye I live for doing live shows, Always looking for opportunity's to preform on stage. Cant beat that feeling, when People are bumping your shit with you. As an artist concerts are vital for connecting with existing & new fans, These days you have to do more then just jump on stage and spit bars. Audience connection is everything in this world of minimal attention spans.
