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.

One word: AMAZING

Not a big fan of reading books (It's rare for me to read a book let alone read for a long period of time) but Curtis King's book was so much fun to listen to that it kept me interested the whole time and he really teaches you what life is like being a music producer from both the industry side and the online marketing side for those wanting to be a music producer. You also get to go deep into Curtis King's humble beginnings and all the difficult struggles he went through in life to get to where he is at today.

This is an amazing book, good job Curtiss King

In this book Curtiss shares very important knowledge for people advancing into the music industry. He uses events from his life to offer insight and lets us take messages away from these events. He also explains how to overcome obstacles on the journey. This book is not just helpful for producers but for anyone who is trying to make a name for themselves or have a business revolving around music.

Nice Bro

I loved it. I could identify with you upon the fact some of the senarios in my life were similar. I really wished someone would have explained things to me you have in the book, when I first pursued music production. Also you can go to college and the same secrets teachers are affraid to share as far as music production goes. Thanks man.

Great read!

Humble author. He has a great sense of humor. Very transparent with his struggles. Provides alot of resources of tips for fellow producers.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking inspiration or knowledge on pushing forward. Not just in music, but people facing various hurdles. We all face them while trying to climb the ladder to materialize our vision/goals.

Enjoyable

This book would be most interesting to someone who wants to know more about Curtis himself. Its a memoir rather than a guide for young producers so purchase it with that in mind. It was truly great hearing his stories and musical journey.
