New York Hip Hop Artists Have Unique Advantage Which They Can Tap By Use Of A Business Website Launched For Their Promotion

By Nick Durso

Many hip hop artists start at an early age. In order to be able to stick around and not be a "one hit wonder," artists need to focus on music as a career. Some artists only have one song and we never hear from them again.

Only a few rappers understand this concept. In order to build a brand and longevity, hip hop must be your life. You must have an entrepreneurial mind set to grow. Some artists just have the music side down 100%. That is why you need a team. The ones who are the true entrepreneurs are the artists who put the money they make back into their brand. Let's talk about some New York rappers that know this concept.

Any one who is a New York City music lover is familiar with 50 Cent and G-Unit. 50 Cent is a legend in NYC for all of rap and hip hop. He is also a very smart and intelligent entrepreneur who owns some well known name companies. He was born in the year 1975 in Jamaica, Queens. BET, The Grammy's, and many more have awarded 50 Cent's achievements. He has also broadened his talents to make movies as an actor, and own large companies such as Vitamin Water. G-Unit clothing, and founder of SK Energy.

Another awesome rapper from the state of New York is extremely popular. Jay-Z is a New York rap legend. All New York music lovers will always remember him. Similar to 50 Cent, Jay-Z too owns businesses, and record labels. He is one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America. He is the former owner of Def Jam Records, as well as other numerous well-known businesses.

From creating music to owning a portion of the Brooklyn Nets, Jay-Z has come a long way. 50 Cent and Jay-Z are here to stick around as New York music lover legends. They both use their own money and reinvest it to make more money in other areas then hip hop. This is detrimental to any business decision. Jay-Z and 50 have both set up foundations to become who they are today.

New York is a very hard place to get ahead. For a New York rapper to do something like Jay Z and 50 Cent, they must set a foundation. There is a saying, "If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere". Maybe some of these new rappers from New York can start a savings plan to be a part owner of a sports team like Nelly, J-Lo, Usher, or Will Smith.
