I've always felt the same way... When someone tells me they make beats I feel like I can't take them serious because they don't take themselves serious enough to not use the same terms that a 12y/o would use. Say I "compose music" or "produce music" but when you ask someone... "Hey so what do you?" "I make beats".. Then that already says something to me about the level they are on and the mind frame they are in. I think its a certain level of maturity that you reach in this business and if you want ppl to take you serious, you have to conduct and carry yourself in a professional manner in which is appropriate for this business. Sit down in front of anyone that can change your life in this business and you tell them you make beats, they will probably say.."Next"
