The life of a rapper has its pros and cons, as it is never smooth sailing for anyone in the world of Hip-Hop. While there is certainly a lot of money and fame that comes with being a rapper, there is also the risk of gang warfare that ends in their deaths. It seems French Montana has an interesting take on rappers.
French Montana is certainly one of the rising stars in the world of Hip-Hop right now as he brings his own unique take on the genre. He is well aware of how difficult it can be to become huge stars in the Hip-Hop world.
While speaking with HOT 97’s Ebro in the Morning, French Montana made a very interesting comparison. Montana claimed that it is easier for players to become successful in the NBA than rappers becoming successful in the Hip-Hop world.
“It’s like, you better off making it in the NBA than making it in Hip Hop,” said Montana. “NBA, what they got, twenty-eight teams? Fifteen players on every team.” Rosenberg chimed in that the teams also “rotate all the time.” Ebro Darden and Rosenberg added that even just signing with a team comes with “pretty good money” with the deal, alone.
“That’s in the hundreds. You’re talin’ about Hip Hop? You can’t even name teen people that’s hot every couple months. The odds is—anybody could do it if it was easy. So, you’re talkin’ about tryin’ to make it? The hustle gotta be relentless. Can’t take no for an answer.”
It is likely many will not agree with what French Montana had to say as NBA players themselves have their own fair share of trials and tribulations they have to deal with. LeBron James is a very good example of this as well.
