If someone ever told you: “If you want to make it in the music business, you should find an artist who already has made it, and get signed to them.” This may or may not be bad advice.
Being signed to another artists takes up a huge amount of time that an artist may not have available since they’re already so busy touring and performing all over the world.
Signing to another artist takes up a huge amount of time that an artist may not have available since they’re already so busy touring and performing all over the world. Artists are often very busy with their own careers, so having someone else manage your career can be extremely beneficial an artist. Artists have interviews, album release parties, and regular performances they need to attend while also trying to promote their own music.
So in reality: signing with another rapper is like asking them if they could take care of your kids for a few days while you go on vacation…and then having them come back and tell you how much fun it was taking care of them!
Most of time successful artists may even have different businesses that they are actively involved in.
Most successful artists don’t have time to be your manager. And if they do, it’s probably because they’re already doing a lot for themselves.
They have to focus on their own careers, businesses and brands. They’ve got big projects going on that require all the attention they can spare from their existing endeavors.
Signing with an artist does not automatically mean you will become a successful recording artist yourself—and even if it does, there are no guarantees that this new relationship will last as long as you need it to survive in this business!
When an artist is first starting out, it’s probably not a good idea for them to sign with another artist. It’s better for them to focus on growing their own brand first.
A lot of artists are tempted to sign with another artist because they think it will help them get more exposure. The problem with this approach is that you need to be able to promote yourself, not just your music. If you’re an artist who can’t do that, signing on as an affiliate may not be the best idea.
An artist should only sign to another artist if they’re sure they can handle the workload and have no other business ventures that need attention. If not, then it’s best to focus on growing your own brand first before sharing it with others!
