My Beat-Making Journey from My Grandma's Patio to a Six-Figure Business
"Music is simply the soul boiling over into sound. When you produce with this in mind, there is no way you'll ever miss the mark." - Curtiss King: Producer. Rapper. Mentor to thousands of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs through his YouTube channel. His production credits include Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, E-40 and MURS, and giants like MTV, VH1, and VANS.
But once upon a time Curtiss was broke, struggling--and crafting beats on a video game console on his grandma's patio. The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer charts his rollercoaster ride to success from these humble beginnings. From beat battles to Top Dawg Entertainment, from empty pockets to a six-figure business, The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer is the story of a dedicated artist who risked all he had--and succeeded. Along the way we get cameos from the likes of DJ Battlecat, Ab-Soul, and Dibia$e, and insights into how successful artists and labels operate in the real world.
Practical, inspirational, and motivational, The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer does more than share the story of a successful artist--it sets you on the road to becoming one yourself. ©2018, 258 pages
