I WANT TO BE A BLACK MILLIONAIRE

Help Me Help Us

BAZILMUZIK’S BLACK MILLIONAIRE is the artists’ most recent methodology fusing message with music. BLACK MILLIONAIRE has an ear grabbing beat that won’t disappoint, yet what holds the listener is the message.

BLACK MILLIONAIRE is propelled by the conviction that radical social change comes through knowledge of self and personal discovery. At a time when the media is  focused on the Travon Martin’s and Mike Brown’s of the world, society as a whole is frustrated with the continual decline of moral aptitude and social injustice.  

BLACK MILLIONAIRE responds with a resoundingly positive attitude towards self and community. Gritty and raw at it’s core.

 BAZILMUZIK’s BLACK MILLIONAIRE takes the listener on a journey of self-reflection and hard hitting commands aimed at today’s youth to stand up and take control of their lives.

Taney, said, “the authors of the Constitution had viewed all blacks as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they “had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”]

Arrogant Artist that don’t achieve a shit

Arrogance, Is It Crippling The Growth Of Indie Artists?

I get sick and tired of artists telling me that they are already doing the things necessary for success, when in fact; most of them haven’t the foggiest idea what music business success looks like. When you don’t know, then your objective should be humility, and within that state of humility, you will allow yourself to be open to not only constructive criticism but also the opportunity.

 

Nowadays, a lot of artists have grown accustomed to writing checks with their mouths that their asses can’t cash. Moreover, artist arrogance is not a new phenomenon it has existed ever since the people who cut the checks told average musicians that they were superstars. Nevertheless, artists like Kanye “I am Michelangelo, I am Walt Disney, I am Steve Jobs” West have gotten more and more famous for being high off their own supply (rants) rather than their music. Sure it is arguable that Kanye West is, in fact, a genius; however, at least he has a string of hit records to build his argument on. As for you….not so much! The first rule of being a drug dealer is never getting high off of your own supply, but many artists who aren’t even qualified to be Kanye’s assistant’s assistant’s assistant rapper seem to believe that overconfidence is the recipe for the day…not the case!

My colleagues and I (other music industry professionals) find it quite comical, yet tragic that so many unsigned or indie level artists are so overconfident that they fail to FOCUS ON THE BASICS LIKE BUILDING A FAN BASE THAT DOESN’T CONSIST OF “LIKES” AND “RETWEETS”, perfecting their live performance, or better still, making music that is relevant and breathtaking.

I get it, generation Y are lazy geniuses, but paradoxical as that may be, I haven’t met a genius who had to tell you he or she was a genius but never exhibited the actions to substantiate the claim. Nobody likes a smart ass or a know-it-all, which begs the question if you know everything there is to know about making it in the music industry, why are you are broke and unknown?

Case and point, I asked an indie artist at a recent music conference, what I could do to help him further his music career; the artist looked at me as if I had said something offensive about his mother. His reply, “I’m already on my grind, and my team and I have started a movement.” WTF?

Okay, if your team is on the grind and you’ve started a movement, then where the fuck is all of your fans? Oh, my bad, your fans are only in cyberspace, which makes them as fake as the cubic zirconia chain you are wearing and as fake as your grind, your movement, and your team!

BELIEVE ME, I CANNOT MAKE THIS SHIT UP!

During another conversation, a female artist told me that she wanted to find a manager that could help her advance her career. When I inquired about the current state of her music career, she told me that she hadn’t recorded any songs that were original, she didn’t have an artist website, and she wasn’t going to change her image or sound in order to fit into what the music industry deems commercially pleasing.

YEAH, I KNOW, WOW, RIGHT?

What sound, could she have possibly been referring to if she had never recorded an original song? What image? She didn’t have an artist website or even a video for that matter, and as for her style, well, I ask again what image?

SHE WAS 100% DELUSIONAL!

In addition, she has nothing to manage, therefore finding a manager is a waste of her time and energy.

Examples like the ones above are why it is of paramount importance that artists today take a good look in the mirror and self-assess their lives, goals, and music careers.

Since a man who represents himself has a fool for a client, I expect that artists will self-assess with the same biases that have been the primary causes of their unfounded arrogance.

So the D.I.Y mindset can break you more than make you.  Cause the truth is, you cannot do it all yourself.  Otherwise, why aren’t you famous or something near there? You don’t need a record deal!! but if you cant do what a record label can do for you, then shut the fuck up and go look for help.
