HOW TO MAKE MONEY AS AN MC REVISITED, PT5

Back in 2012 when I started this blog one of my first post was on how to make money as an MC. The info in the article was straight from my own experiences as an underground MC/Promoter. As the landscape continues to change I feel its time we revisit this topic and add a little more flair and new strategies!!!!

HOW TO MAKE MONEY AS AN MC “PERFORMANCE”

Get up on stage and RAP! The ULTIMATE way to promote your brand is to SHOW people! Most MCs live on the road performing to make ends meet. Its always a little hard convincing someone to buy or download your music especially if they’ve never heard of you or seen a video so you have to prove your work, you have to PERFORM your work. The more and more you perform the more merch you can sell and the higher your stock will rise and the demand for your SHOW will increase. This will require long hours of practice and organization. The art of PERFORMANCE encompasses all the other elements of  MCing. FREESTYLE: Your ability to improvise on stage when something goes wrong or to differentiate one show form the next. BATTLE: On stage you essentially battle for crowd support and participation against other acts. SONGWRITING: Performing increases your songwriting skill and ability because on stage you learn what music the crowd reacts better to and what pace or bpm your body is comfortable in which is very important.
