How Music Artists Become Famous In 2023

The odds of you becoming a famous rapper can look slim, but here are ways you can better your odds.

If you ask the average rapper if they want to make $100k a year rapping or be famous, they'll choose fame 9/10 times.

Fame is seductive. The lifestyle is like a drug and there's a strong pull when you perform live in front of raging fans.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to be a famous rapper or artist but it's essential that you also understand the business side of contracts and label deals.

๐Ÿ‘€ How Do Music Artists Get Noticed Today?

With so much noise on social media, it can be hard to get noticed even for the most talented musicians.

But the good news is that most artists refuse to work hard on marketing and the business side, so you have an advantage if you do it.

So, ask yourself, are you willing to work harder than 99% of the rappers out there? What are you ready to give up to get there?

We've seen a number of rappers who got famous online by consistently putting out great content, connecting with fans one at a time, and keeping going no matter what.

It can take months or years to get there but if you keep going, you're bound to see some success.

โœ๐Ÿฝ Becoming A Famous Rapper Without a Label

Back in the 90s and 2000s, the labels had a lot more control over who popped and who didn't.

Today, it's a different story. Music labels no longer understand how to break a new artist and instead, look for artists that have a hit song or large follower stats on social media.

This is great for independent artists because it levels the playing field more.

As a rapper, you have more options and you can get in front of fans without a huge marketing machine behind you.

โฑ How Long It Takes To Become a Famous Rapper

Unfortunately, there's no specific timeframe to get fame.

Some rappers are able to get famous with one hit song like Desiigner and for others, it takes years of hard work like Eminem which took over 12 years to become a global star.

Some artists get famous as a child like Bow Wow and then you have rappers who don't get to fame until their 40s like 2 Chainz.

Your career will be unique and the path you use to get famous will be different than other rappers out now.

๐Ÿ“ธ The Odds Of Becoming A Famous Rapper

We aren't going to lie to you, the odds of you becoming a famous rapper are fucking low.

One thing that can help your odds is having a very different style when compared to other rappers out now.

When it comes to your lyrics, create a unique style and use dope beats. Sounds simple, but it can get you noticed by fans. Some would call it having "radio" friendly songs.

The other alternative is to do some crazy shit for publicity and followers. Going this route can work but there's a high chance you can be a one-hit wonder and fade away if you can't keep it up.
