BEFORE I START I WANT TO 1ST APOLOGIZE TO SENSITIVE ARTIST WHO READS THIS, I WILL ALSO LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO ANYONE WHO WAS EXPECTING ME TO KISS THERE ASSES, DISS THEM OR EVEN SHOUT THEM OUT. THIS IS MADE ONLY TO PREPARE SOME FOR THINGS TO COME IN THE NEAR MONTH.
TOWARDS THE END OF THE YEAR ALOT OF TOP 5’S 25’S ETC COME OUT ON WHO IS AT THE TOP OF THE RAP GAME AND A LOT OF ARTIST GET MAD WHEN THEY ARE NOT CONSIDERED FOR SUCH A PRESTIGIOUS HONOR. FRIENDS BECOME ENEMY. SECRECTS BECOME PUBLIC. THE MURDER RATE INCREASES AND SHIT GETS REAL LOL. THIS YEAR IM GIVING ALOT OF YOU HEADS UP ON WHY YOU ARENT THE TOP RAP ARTIST IN THE LOU EVEN IF YOU ARE MENTIONED IN YOUR BEST FRIENDS TOP 5-10-25 BEST ARTIST OR 2012.
1. WHO’S SHOW MONEY
IF YOU HAVE DONE LESS THAN 20 SHOWS THIS YEAR OUT SIDE OF ST.LOUIS YOU MIGHT NOT BE ON THIS LIST, EVEN IF YOU ARE HITTING THE ROAD IF YOU ARE STILL PAYING TO PERFORM WHETHER ITS OPEN MICS ORMAJOR SHOWS YOU MIGHT NOT BE ON THIS LIST
HOW DO YOU FEED YOUR FAMILY? IS IT FROM RAP OR IS IT FROM YOUR 9A-5P THATS NON ENTERTAINMENT RELATED. NOTHING AGAINST ANYONE WITH A GOOD JOB IF ANYTHING I SALUTE YOU. BUT IF YOUR MUSIC CAREER CAN’T FEED YOUR FAMILY YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE THIS LIST.
HOW IS YOUR MUSICAL MESSAGE BEING BROADCAST? ARE YOU SPAMMING ON SOCIAL SITES OR DO (REAL FANS) POST YOUR LINKS ARE WEBSITES AND BLOGS PICKING YOU UP BECAUSE YOU ARE BEGGING THEM OR DO THEY SEE POTENTIAL TRAFFIC IN CARRYING YOUR PRODUCT
IF YOU ARE A SPAM ARTIST (THROWING YOUR LINK AROUND FACEBOOK TWITTER) YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE THIS LIST
IF BLOG SITES & WEBSITES REFUSE TO FEATURE YOU, YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE A REAL TOP RAP ARTIST LIST
4. WHO IS PAYING FOR THE PRODUCT
COLLABS, SHOWS, MERCHANDISE, ARE YOU MAKING MONEY OFF ANY OF THIS? IF NOT WHO CREDITABLE IS PUTTING YOU ON ANY TOP LIST OF ARTIST?
5.CASHING THE REALITY CHECK
IF YOU STILL THINK THAT BEING THE BEST IS DEFINED BY HAVING THE (DOPEST BARS), OR YOUR BOYS JOCKING YOU, OR EVEN THINKING HAVING A SONG ON THE RADIO IN YOUR LOCAL TOWN MATTERS, YOU MIGHT NOT BE ON THIS LIST BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE GAME IS ABOUT
OF COURSE THERE ARE A LOT OF LIST THAT POP UP MOST OF EM OR NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL PICS OR PEOPLE’S ASSES THAT OTHER PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO KISS
YOU’LL NEVER BE AT AN ELITE LEVEL WITH OUT HAVING A BUDGET (REAL BUDGET), AND A STRONG GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN YOU SO EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE NOT ON THIS LIST DOESN’T MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.

None of who the “Best Rapper of St. Louis” matters. The reality of it all is this: Certain artists were given chances and they blew it. And as you so dubbed it…all the real life drama comes out after these awards. It is this type of behavior, that has COMPLETELY turned off major labels, and even large to larger Independent Labels. When artists in St. Louis learn to behave like artists, when they humble themselves, and stop trying to tear down the other, the black cloud that forever pervades the Hip Hop scene in St. Louis may just begin to dissipate. But until that time, to be straight forward and honest…no one’s getting out.
I agree. I’ve said this for awhile, St. Louis artist kill their own opportunities. St. Louis as a whole should have a stronger presence in Hip-Hop then they do. The artist are not united and without unity…there is no movement, and you don’t think the industry sees this? Another issue for St. Louis Artist ( with the exception of a few) is material content. They are too ” One Dimensional”. If all you hear on every song is something pertaining to St. Louis, you will never be able to be more than a St. Louis artist….People from Chicago won’t be able to identify with you…try making music with a universal dialect.
DOWNTOWN TALIBAN IS THE REAL ST.LOUIS. FUCK NELLY HE WASNT BORN N RAISED HERE. WE SPEAK THE REAL SHIT DATS HAPPENIN N OUR CITY. TALIBAN GOT THE MOST RESPECT IN ST.LOUIS. DEAL COMIN SOON. CATCH US AT LIL REESE CONCERT DEC 26TH. SHOW SUPPORT N STOP WORRY BOUT WHO ON TOP. ITS WHO UP NXT!
