#WordToTheWise: “Quality Over Quantity”


A lot of artists have 100 plus songs under their belt and still wonder why they haven’t got “on” yet.

So until you know that you’ve found your sound as an artist, don’t try to knock out as many songs as you can in one studio session. Find one record (at a time) that you love, and perfect it. It only takes one hit. 😏

#WordToTheWise is quality over quantity!

#WordToTheWise: “Brand Yourself”


Brand yourself. Find ways to separate yourself from the rest. Have a personality that doesn’t distract from your music, but rather compliments it, and ultimately attracts more fans.

Ms. Cardi B is a prime example! People fell in love with Cardi’s unfiltered persona on TV and social media, and when people started to listen to her music, they were pleasantly surprised. Not only that, once Cardi started gaining some heavy clout, she NEVER changed — and people love her even more for that!

And what about Blac Youngsta?
His Instagram videos are beyond hilarious, and even if we don’t get what he’s talking about half the time, he makes us laugh, and we continue to go back to his Insta for more. Best believe, when he drops any posts about his music, that we’re here for that too!

#WordToTheWise is brand yourself as an ARTIST, your music and image goes hand and hand.

Kawan “KP” Prather Takes Over The Fourth Annual Revolt Music Conference in Miami, Florida

This past weekend, Kawan “KP” Prather took over Miami Beach for the fourth annual Revolt Music Conference as a special guest panelist, judge and DJ. Hundreds of music lovers and aspiring artists gathered at the beautiful Eden Roc Hotel to learn key information from some of today’s leaders in music. KP kicked off the conference on Thursday as a guest judge for Revolt’s ‘Be Heard’ competition. KP auditioned dozens of performers, all hoping to make it through to the next level to win a slot on Revolt TV. Paxton, the winner of the competition, was one of KP’s artists he selected to advance to the next round.

Friday morning, KP was a special guest speaker on the ‘F* A&R I Can Do It All Myself!’ panel, in which the name alone drew a curious crowd. KP had the packed audience engaged from the moment the panel began. He, along with Brooklyn Johnny, Orlando Wharton and Ryan Press with Darrale Jones as the moderator, shared key insider advice that every aspiring artist should follow. KP shares, “When you look at the artists that are making the biggest impact today like Kendrick Lamar, SZA, 6LACK, Khalid and legends like Kanye and Jay Z, they all acknowledge that having a dope A&R is a key member to have on a winning team.”

Saturday KP switched gears from music Exec to DJ when he was selected as a special guest DJ for the Ciroc Hustle Pool Party at Eden Roc Hotel. KP warmed the crowd up for one of his long time friends and legendary artists he signed, Tip “T.I.” Harris, who took the stage next for a full Hustle Gang experience. “The RMC felt like a music business family reunion, where the statesmen & women share their stories and experiences with the young people, in hopes that it would help them navigate the journey a little bit easier and faster. I look forward to being apart of it next year,” KP stated.
