Most rappers invest in #IMAGE very few invest in themselves and their #BRAND as a PRODUCT. When i began this mission, NOBODY wanted to help. But since i know there are a few really good rappers on my FB page, this post will spell out the f**king BASICS!

www.ascap.com (rights protection and royalties)
www.bmi.com ( same as ASCAP but free, sometimes)

THOSE are the f**king BASICS. There is much more that goes into it, do the reseach, google it. But if you dont have these things down, AT LEAST THESE BASICS, then rap is a hobby that you arent takin SERIOUS so why would anyone else?
