Curtiss King’s inspirational story can resonate with so many producers, artists and entrepreneurs all together. So many details of his early days as a producer had me thinking, “WOW I LITERALLY JUST WENT THROUGH SOMETHING LIKE THAT!” and when he explains his process and how he overcame it, it left me feeling like I could conquer the world.
This book reads like a reference guide/biographical hybrid. As you read the book, you’re following Curtiss’ ups and downs (if you think your struggle as a producer/artist/entrepreneur is unique, get in line, because I thought the same until I realized that Curtiss was facing problems that I’m going through now, and more at that, and found a solution. He should have named the book Producer Lemonade, because he was handed a lot of lemons in life and found a way to make something out of nothing.
He covers everything from understanding networking, to the truth about placements, to getting your name out there, personal brand, overcoming criticisms, the whole nine yards. He’s not some empty promise peddler whose selling dreams and telling you, “Now if you want to know the SECRET TO MAKING IT AS A PRODUCER, read my follow up book, “The PAID Hip-Hop Producer: Turning Prosperity into Long Term Opportunity.” I finished the book thinking, “I’m almost positive I missed another gem, I have to read this again.”
I found myself cheering him on even though I knew he was already winning. The vulnerability and openness (and his perspective on vulnerability and openness) make the dynamics of this book both captivating and motivating. It feels as if Curtiss King told me his life’s story as we were riding down a highway on a sunny day in California. To every producer/artist/entrepreneur whose looking for a book that gives it to you straight about the industry without having the interest level of paint drying on a wall, this is the book. $20 can change your perspective and approach to an ever evolving industry while showing you that nothing is new under the sun, it’s just a few new rules to the game. Fantastic read.
Reading Curtiss King's journey has been eye opening. This is what we need, an honest glimpse into what is needed to be successful in this industry. By seeing where Curtiss made the wrong and right choices, I can see where I went right and wrong.
This book is informative, relatable and Curtiss' wit is ever present! It's taught me not only how to make better music but make better choices when the music is finished. My dream is in my hands now. Thank you Curtiss King for writing the book I needed to read!
Prior to August 2016 I was unaware of who Curtiss King was. However, due to an auto accident at my day job and being out of work for some time I was able to learn who he was via his YouTube channel.
The circumstances that led me to his world were unfortunate, but at this point I wouldn't have it any other way. Everything that his brand stands for screams empowerment and I have no problem financially supporting this brotha.
The book was informative and entertaining. Curtiss also gave just enough transparency while still making me want to learn more about him.
I encourage any Rapper, Producer, Entrepreneur, etc to invest in this. The investment in this book is definitely an investment in your future.
