Publisher's Summary

"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.

Good book.....interesting story.

Was an interesting story. there are a lot of great pieces of advice and some lessons to learn from Mr. King's experience. As a producer who has a day job, I took one major thing away from this.....thank God I didn't try to do music exclusively. Mr. King should be extremely proud of what he accomplished but the struggle he describes would have broken me personally. The industry isnt for everyone. I grew up in the late 90s as a rapper/producer and went to college where I had 2 paths to take....music or business. music is now a hobby. If I could turn it into the same compensation as I have with my 9 to 5, i would. But I cannot imagine putting my wife and kids through the struggle he described. Mr. King provides a very honest self reflection of this and it is insightful. Curtiss, if you are reading this, I want to also thank you for holding a mirror up to my face regarding the snobbery I carried regarding music production tools. I too looked down at Fruity Loops and AbeltonLive producers (I'm a Logic and MPC guy....converted from a Sonar and MPC guy). I should never be so shallow and critical of what someone uses to produce what they love. best of luck - Adam Troy ( aka Absense)
