M.A. Cee-Kings: The Music Industry and Me


I don't know exactly where this will end up but I felt compelled to write this because of some new things I have been learning. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you probably have seen my posts or tweets about the music industry as of late. Re-evaluting my position as to how important is it for me to BLOW UP! Always been a dream of mine to be recognized on the worlds stage. As a youth its all glitter and gold. It looks good. Then as an adult you learn about what it takes, or rather what others have done to "ascend" to their positions of fame and wealth it becomes a bit more cloudy. It's like looking at a glass of clear water and someone pouring milk in the glass the more you learn. Oddly, the truth becomes clear..not because the milk clouds your vision..its now your able actually to see what was never there. By my own admissions I have said that I have them "dark forces" in me. I haven't sold my! What I mean is I have been apart of some things not of the light so to speak. The streets etc... Just so happens at this time I feel I'm being tested. I feel like I have to choose sides. The crazy part is all I ever wanted to do is make music. Now it feels like the wrong choice will haunt me forever.

Update: November 26, 2013

Looking through my old posts and I came across this. I had forgot that I had wrote it, but ironically enough I am still in almost the same spot. I’ve learned even more about the industry and its dealings. The road ahead has revealed itself to be even more hazardous to navigate. If that glass of water was real back in April 2012,  I would have a glass full of milk by now. All the water would have been displaced. Sh*t real, but so is my dream. So I’ve just decided to make music and let the rest be history. I have a price that I am not willing to pay. Would I still like to blow up? Hell yeah. Who wouldn’t? I rhyme because I love it, but to get paid millions of dollars to rap my songs would be a bonus. I’m with that. This whole thing is about family for me now. To build something that will secure the financial future of my family now, and generations to come is the goal. It would be nothing less than dope to do that in a few years. However, it wouldn’t be any less dope to do that regardless. So I’m going to do it my way. The old fashioned way. Fan by fan. Show to show. Updates and posts. Mixtapes and albums. And see how that goes. :)
