I think about that too man. But I just wanna be famous so bad it overshadows. And I tell myself I won't give in to that shady shit. But who knows, I'm sure so many people have said the same thing and then turned sour once they got famous.
Man, you do not even have anything to worry about. You are not going to be famous or rich from music. Just give your music away.

There are a couple of things to consider when approaching this. First, this is BUSINESS. If you break this word down in English, it breaks down into "busy" and "ness". Armchair producers will NOT achieve anything. Learn what needs to be done. It doesn't matter how talented you are, if you're not being proactive in trying to accomplish something, it simply WILL NOT GET DONE. Nobody is going to knock on your door based on what they heard on the interwebs. NOONE. You will never hear someone's success stories involving them sitting on their ass and-all of a sudden-they get that phone call. If you're not busy, then nothing will happen.
Also, there is no such thing as someone who's been successful at business at the level of which you are speaking without either:
A) Accepting the fact that it all business involves a certain amount of shrewdness or ruthlessness and adapting to it
B) Learning how to approach those aspects of the business that involve ruthlessness in a way that both achieves your goals AND leaves your Soul/conscience clean.
Success doesn't happen, it is an end result of tireless effort.
Don't worry about famous. You need to worry about fundamentally sound first. You can "want" all day and night, but if you don't bring shyte to someone's table, ain't a damn thing happenin'.
One step at a time. Learn how to do what you want to do. Then Learn to be the best at it.
And remember that this is real Life. Chances are, you aren't gonna make it. Accept that. Then crush that notion.

To the OP....
Guess what... no matter whether you get famous or work a 9-5 there will be shady people there, there will be people that want your spot, people that don't think you belong there, there will be people that just don't like people of your skin color, there will be people that won't like it that you have a woman, there will be people that won't like that you're happy.
Everybody has been screwed, they probably just don't know it. My HR Dept benchmarks against other companies, they sent a message to my dept and told them I was underpaid. I'm the only black person in my section. Did I get pissed and quit... nope. I took the raise and kept it moving.
I bet you've cheated on a woman before, she got screwed. Did she turn into a lesbian and say phuck all dudes? Probably not.
I wouldn't worry about shady people until I was knowledgeable enough to know I might get screwed. Meaning you can be in love with a chick that's bangin' your best friend but until you know it... you don't get mad. So don't get mad yet. You treat life's experiences as learning tools.
If you do make it, more than likely you'll get screwed. The thing to do is not to repeatedly get phucked and learn the ropes.
... then you can screw a few people and get even. <<<<--- bad advice, lol
as they used to say in the 90's... charge it to the game.
