Little Hater continued ( Big Ups to Jay Smooth )


If you've read my about me section yet you would know I'm an aspiring music producer. I've been going hard at it for about 6 or 7 years and for the most part it's been a good look. I've had a few little successes and I've had the opportunities to work with great artists and have made great music up to this point. But for the majority of theses 6 to 7 years I've had this voice in the back of my head that's been slowing me down and sometimes stopping me months at a time. This little hater as Jay Smooth would call it ( www.illdoctrine.com ) for me has been more of a giant kinda like a dark cloud that I keep wishing one day will go away. So I'm determined to beat the little hater and I know this is going to be a tough task for me. Lately i've just been battling through it by just trying to ignore it while I'm making a beat or writing a hook. I've also been listening to my peers which mostly consist of aspiring producers, emcees, djs, and promoters who have helped me through some of my rough times. Shout Outs to Reservoir Dogz music, Dj Spoonz, Fusion 3 soundcrew, Charlie Black and the Mobstars fam, Mista Bourne and da rest of Mad Fam, Castro, Quest and the rest of Dime-a-Dozen. Last night for the first time in a long time I felt confident in my music again when I played a couple joints for my homie Castro ( Look out for him he's a beast ) and I gotta say it was refreshing.


p.s anyone who has any tips, ideas, suggestions or stories of how they beat their little hater please post a comment you may be helping someone to be the next big thing

D,

Do you listen to Blackalicious? Not only are the beats fantastic (they're more compositions than beats), but the lyrics are incredibly inspiring.

Change up your shit. If you're in a funk, do something different. Make some radical changes in your life. Put yourself in situations where you feel uncomfortable and make it work. GROW!
