WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?
Read above. What do you do when you come to that creative block?
For me it's when i hear a dope beat, then I just let myself flow with the beat, my lyrics are based on the message I get from the music.
But yes, i also get it from listening to lyrics, my favourite inspirational rapper is Atmosphere. Everyone of his songs are deep and meaningful, or you could go for that pure brutal stuff such as Necro, Mr. Hyde etc.
I get my inspiration from not thinking about music. Very rarely does anything inspirational come to me when I'm consciously thinking about making music or writing lyrics. Ideas come most often when my mind is focused entirely on something else -- cleaning out a closet, reading a book, unclogging a drain, writing a letter, stuff like that. It's true. Also, it helps to be in a "happy" state of mind. Not just a "positive" state of mind. I can THERE with willpower alone, but "happiness" comes from doing whatever you think your're truly supposed to be doing in this world.
My basic mantras for creativity are "don't force it", "stop trying to be someone else's perfect", "take risks" and "have fun".
I get mine when I'm taking a sh*t, I always go digital digging finding fresh samples. As a matter of fact, I'm on the toilet right now reviewing some hot ones! "Chocolate Milk" & "Brown and Brown" lol

damn bro that shit sounds sick, did you make that yourself
Life. My feeling emotions shit that happens whatever. I can translate whatevers going on into any kind of music. Jazz, instrumental, hip-hop, glitch, acoustic music, whatever
for me, i just listen to one of my favorite tracks and i think to myself, i can do something more creative than this, i have to top this. i have to tell myself in my head how bad i want this, treat it like everyone is competition, like no matter what i do its never good enough, that way ill never get to comfortable and ill always have that hunger. sometimes all this isnt enough and beat block still comes on. in that case i decide to just let it happen, cant force creativity
Just let it happen
