There are struggle rappers, and then there are rapper struggles. God knows there are enough struggle rappers, and they surely struggle mightily. But even being a not-always-struggling rapper comes with its own set of difficulties. Our plebeian day-to-day doesn't compare whatsover with that of our famous rap heroes. Frankly, we can not even begin to imagine the pressure they deal with.
With that said, there are common missteps that rappers fall victim to. If you are a rapper or are wanting to be a rapper, we've compiled this list (imagine that?) of Common Rapper Struggles for you. Avoid, or at least plan accordingly for, these pitfalls, and your career will be smooth sailing. Learn from the mistakes of others. Do better.
