“The Come Up Tag Execution” or How to do your big album if you a real artist or just wanna look like one on TV!

I don’t claim to be some kind of musical genius or critic extraordinaire, but my over 20 years of work in the DJ, rapper, producer, and musician field allows me to teach ya’ll illiterate motherfuckers posing as artists a thing or two about putting together your seminal album. See in this music sghit you really only got two choices if you want to be remembered for something and not for being the butt of a joke on some VH1 pop up show. Now listen carefully to these three basic rules pussies and you might actually turn out to be somebody!

Rule Numero Un: Do write about what you know and not what you think you know. – Self explanatory niggaz! There’s never a future in yo frontin’ mang!

Rule Numero Two: Take your time and do it right baby. Nothing fucks up an album more than weak mixes, tinny beats, or rushed herky jerky content. You only get to make a first impression once simpletons. It’s either you sink or swim doggy so make sure you come correct off the rip. Otherwise you get what you deserve! Rule

Nombre Trois: Just let it go. Don’t hold back now sunny, you’re there. It’s up to you. Seriously, all the preparation and long days and nights that you put into your craft have prepared you for this point. It’s up to you now. Don’t hold back and end up regretting shit. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Here are some of my favorite albums if you clowns need some references:

Street Songs – Rick James

Illmatic – Nas

Criminal Minded – BDP

Songs in the Key of Life – Stevie Wonder

Road to the Riches – Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo

Paid In Full – Eric B. & Rakim

Dah Shinin’ Smif N Wessun

Yo Bumrush the ShowPublic Enemy

    lol i know what you mean.. to make a good album that’ll go platnuim now a days though its all about how hot your single is.. well let me stop the the bs its always like that. now when it comes to the content of an album to make a classic people forget about it isn’t just about how many club songs can you fit in a album.. its about teaching people something, taking them through a journey and teaching life lessons through songs.
