It's time for you to stop rapping.
Let that settle in for a second.
For some of you reading this article that was the most liberating thing you've heard in weeks. But it's time. There are a myriad of reasons that explain why it's time for you to stop rapping but right now you just need to embrace the joyous, liberating reality of your musical retirement.
For some, you need to hear the reality of something you know deep down is true but no one around you has the guts to tell you: you're just not that good. And I'm not talking to people just starting out and trying to sharpen your craft. You're off the hook here. I'm talking to you Mr. / Mrs. / Ms. 3 to 4 albums strong and all just aren't that good. No one is saying you're a bad person, but plenty of people are saying behind your back what you need to hear to your face - you're not a good rapper and you haven't been one for a while now. Deep down, you know it’s true but pride won't let you accept it. Well allow me to be the voice of reason, conscious and honesty - you're not that good and it's time for you to stop rapping. I'm not being mean but, for once someone is telling you the honest truth you've been waiting to hear and it’s time to hang up the pen, blackberry, iPad "Notes" app or whatever you use to write rhymes with. But hang on with me, I'll go deeper with you in a minute.
