Publisher's Summary

"Music is simply the soul boiling over into sound. When you produce with this in mind, there is no way you'll ever miss the mark."

Curtiss King: Producer. Rapper. Mentor to thousands of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs through his YouTube channel. His production credits include Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, E-40, and MURS, and giants like MTV, VH1, and VANS.

But once upon a time Curtiss was broke, struggling - and crafting beats on a video game console on his grandma's patio. The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer charts his rollercoaster ride to success from these humble beginnings. From beat battles to Top Dawg Entertainment, from empty pockets to a six-figure business, The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer is the story of a dedicated artist who risked all he had - and succeeded. Along the way we get cameos from the likes of DJ Battlecat, Ab-Soul, and Dibia$e, and insights into how successful artists and labels operate in the real world.

Practical, inspirational, and motivational, The Prosperous Hip Hop Producer does more than share the story of a successful artist - it sets you on the road to becoming one yourself.

good book but was hoping to get more

good book. I was hoping to get more than stories of Curtiss King's come up. I was looking on some step by step strategies on what to do to be a prosperous producer.

Love this book

The words are powerful, relatable, digestible. It gives a real life look at the role of being a producer. Becoming somewhat like a hermit in the music lab is true. I loved his insights and takeaways. Great read.

Life Changing

Greatest book for my profession! eye opening and motivating. I have started putting a lot of this information in motion as I have listened to each chapter. I've only had this book for a week but the return in my mental health has improved which pushed me to become a better beat maker within the start of this book.
