They tell you be original and go create your own lane
Then they say sound like somebody else for my shit to get played
Rappers are told to be original and find their own path in the game. Basically, to be ‘real’. However, they are told later on that the only way they will get anywhere on the mainstream market and for their songs to go on the air, is to effectively ‘sell out’ and change their style to match one of the more popular mainstream artists.
