“One of the many struggles that I face daily as an independent artist is physical and emotional support from my craft”, admits aspiring composer The Infamous Joov.
Although the age of YouTube has taught others to learn new aspects in life at a fast pace; some problems may never cease to exist.
“Without proper funding, artists such as Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, and Jay-Z would have never been able to achieve their entrepreneurial feats outside of the entertainment industry”, states Joov.
In hindsight, this may cause other talent acts to put themselves in risky situations in order to maintain a star-lustful career.
“Growing up in a small town called Monticello (they called my neighborhood the Quarters), I realized that the opportunities that I so badly wanted would only come from hard work and determination… all which can only be accomplished on my own”, proclaims Joov.
