Becoming famous involves being known by a lot of people. If you’re trying to learn how to become a famous rapper, I’m going to show you how to do so. However, to keep this article from being extremely complicated, I’m going to keep everything simple. Simple to digest and simple to take action on.
1. Develop Your Talent
You need to develop some type of skill or talent that can be absorbed or liked by a lot of people. For most of you, it’ll be your music. For those not in the process of making music at this moment, it could be things like fashion, interior design, fitness, and more. You just need a core talent that can be appreciated by a lot of people.
2. Promote Your Talent
Next, you need to put yourself out there. You have to promote your music or talent. Your work is not going to be perfect, and If you try to make it perfect, you’re going to waste time that you’ll never be able to get back. Everybody isn’t going to like, so it’s better for you to fail now (if you’re going to fail). That way you’ll be a lot closer to success.
3. Build An Audience
You’re going to want to build an audience. I talk about building a fanbase for your music a lot. But, all you’re doing is building a core audience of people who like what you do.
In the beginning, you may have to build an audience 1-by-1. When you find a person that likes your music, your brand, or whatever talent you’re putting out – you should become best friends with them.
At its most simple, building an audience involves making friends.
4. Engage That Audience
Once you start building an audience, you need to engage with them. This includes letting them know how they can help you, having a casual conversation, and just being a good friend. Any messages you get from your audience, respond to those messages. That not only helps that relationship grow, but motivates them to tell other people about you – because they feel more like a friend than just a “fan” or “customer”.
When done consistently, this creates a compounding effect: 1 person tells 1 person – 2 people tell 2 people – 4 people tell 4 people – 8 people tell 8 people – and before you know it, you have thousands of people doing your marketing for you.
That’s How You Become A Famous Rapper
That’s really all you need to become a famous hip-hop artist. Not as complicated as you probably imagined?
Yeah, there’s no secret sauce or 1-way to do it. But regardless, becoming famous usually involve the #4 points above.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s a side of luck in that. There’s a side of right place, right time. But, that’s usually not the deciding factor.
You also don’t have to be Drake or Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift famous. There are a lot of famous people in their niches and industries that aren’t household names.
For most people reading this, you won’t be able to name somebody famous in the agriculture world (I know I can’t). However, that doesn’t stop those I see on Twitter from having hundreds of thousands of social media followers and reach.
And although becoming a famous hip-hop artists sounds good, remember, it’s better to have 1,000 true fans than to have 10,000 “you’re cool” type of fans.
