Filmmaker - Musician - Photographer

once again....no clever title

I need to work on my title skills. There are people who have very clever titles in their blog posts. I do not. Evidently I'm not as smart as I thought. What kind of writer can't even come up with a title for his/her blogs? A bad writer....thats who.

So, lately I've had low confidence in my music. Its not that I think its not good. I think my music is very good. I'll even go as far as to say that its borderline 'hot'. The thing is that I'm starting to fear that there isn't a place for me in the music industry.

I mainly do Hip-Hop and R&B music and the market for those genres are calling for something that I don't offer - wackness. Thats right. I'm not wack. My music is original, creatively arranged, and its really not wack. So, in a Hip-Hop/R&B world of wackness, where do I fit in?

My tracks lack an ass-shaking redundancy. The songs I write are not simple enough to connect with the mentally challenged. Where do I fit in?!

It may sound like I'm being sarcastic and witty, but the truth is that I'm not being sarcastic and I'm not a witty person. I'm being honest. I am truely worried that I'm either not good enough or not wack enough to really fit into the music industry. I have friends that stroke my ego (as friends should) and tell me that I'm going to make it, but its hard to believe when you hear songs like what the radio plays now. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but is it really enough to lead me to where I wanna be or will I be roaming in the dark forever.

I work hard and I hope my hard work gets me to where I want to be.

....I really don't feel like I'm supposed to be sitting at this office desk forever taking orders from anyone....
