Concerts, cosigns by famous rappers/people, freestyles. Start by getting everyone in your town/city to know about you and build from there.

You ever have a can of dog food and ten hungry dogs. It’s a little like that. Music is like food for people’s soul but really it’s more like the can, and in the can is the actual food you can eat. All ten dogs will follow the asshole which consistently gives them the most food.

It’s all economics remember, cash moves etc.

Fans will start spinning that shit repetitively if it’s that entertaining. You can’t expect people to download some bullshit just because it’s free.
