I've been recording a while, as an MC. I've been doing free shows in my city and I'm relatively well known locally. The problem is, is that I'm broke with no money to spend on my image and distribution and stuff like that. No money for videos and cameras and all that. I just want to hear from a professional opinion...how to break through that barrier and get noticed by big name producers and get noticed period..and start getting paid for this. Because people ask me when I get off stage...do you have merch...do you have this or that...why in gods name aren't you signed... and its flattering but I reply welp....cuz I'm broke...and i dont have a street team to back me up. Any general advice?
