Most of the the “top 40” is done by folks who got their break working off a cheap PC laptop and a cracked version of Fruity Loops. They still work off a laptop and Fruity Loops (or Logic for $199) even though they are in the game.

I’ve known tons of NBA/NFL athletes, Actors, “Drug Dealers”, “Rich kids” who pumped serious money into gear, studios, record labels. They all fall flat and turn out to be glorified hang out hobby spots that suck up money. Gear doesn’t equal talent. Never has. Even when these guys pay for great production and features it doesn’t work.

Talent, determination, and networking is what it takes. Most are just not as talented as they think they are. And just about all are not as determined as they need to be. Especially when they already have $, or on the other end of the spectrum, are working a 9 to 5 and supporting a family.
