    What age do you think a rapper needs to gain some sort of

    I read in How to be a record producer that generally with the mainstream mainstream, females should blow by the latest 21 and males 25.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Is there such a thing as too late?

    Naturally, I'd say prolly 25 or 26. I mean Em didn't make it "mainstream mainstream" until he was what, 27 I think. Jay didn't blow until he was 26, hard to believe lol, cause I feel like he's been around foreverrrr. But it does make me feel a little insecure as far as today goes. It seems as though that number is getting drastically younger than from what it was 10 years ago. Today, it seems like you don't make it by 23 or 24, that's it. I mean look at all these people coming out in recent years, it's insane. Drake, I'd say blew up once So Far Gone hit, he was 23. You got Wiz, blew up with Kush & OJ, was 23. Big Sean's had a big following for a year now, he broke through at 22. A bit off the rails with this one, but still "rap", there's Tyler, he's only freaking 20. Obviously, we know about Soulja. Then though they are more hip-pop, New Boyz are only about 20 as well. It's worrisome lol. And I'm only 20 myself, but I feel like I'm lightyears behind them.

    Are you joking? It's music bro! It's never to late. Anyone who thinks that you can't express yourself because of your age thinks close minded. You could be a 70 year old rapper if you wanted to.. Heck I think Jay-Z might be the Bernard Hopkins of Rap...lol Lets see how long he stays around.

    Thumbs up

    I think to be considered a valuable MC to a label you have to be a least 24 years of age. Nobody's tryna spend money on liars no more. Exposing yourself and surviving in this world financially should be your motivation until a UFO label abducts you (LOL). Age equals wisdom and thats what makes the speakers jump now-a-days.

    As long as it sounds good I'm okay with any age. But if one has been smoking all his life and his voice starts to get all hoarse in his 50s, he should probably stop, because it won't sound good anymore. Kinda what happened with Ozzy, although he ain't a rapper. Eminem is 38 and he can still kick off some pretty decent songs.

    I'd like to start of by saying whattt??!?!
    Most mc's these days claiming to be gangsters and thugs aren't much more than mommas boys that grew up in white urban communities that turn the real streets into "closed courses" in their music videos....

    Not trying to rain on chrisMOE's parade, I'm just ranting about studio thugs. much respect to chris moe though
