15 Steps To Being A Great MC

Strong Team

There is no I in Team and you can’t take 0ver the world by yourself. It becomes your support system when times are rough and a strong team can help you develop a strong marketing plan to present you to the audience.

Competitive/Work Ethic

Kendrick said it best “I’m sure they’re good friends off the court. But when you’re in that booth, you have to be able to annihilate whoever’s out there and that keeps the level of hip-hop alive, as far as the culture.” This isn’t two hand touch, rap is competitive. If you want to be the best, you have to work for it.


Not saying you have to dress in tuxedos all day long. However, you must be somewhat reasonable. Have your unique look, wether its off the wall, dirty, or super clean, present it well.

Risk Taker

With great risk comes reward, you can’t be afraid to push the envelope.


Remember you are a artist, get weird.
