In comparison to the 1990s and 2000s, the hip-hop music industry has changed significantly over the past two decades. Hip hop in 2023 can be distinguished from earlier hip hop by the obvious differences in rap’s delivery on records and in its overall style. Because of the emergence of the internet as a crucial tool for networking, even the business side of music has undergone significant change. These days, a growing number of musicians are also engaging in a variety of other business endeavors in addition to their careers as recording artists.
It’s a fact that the music business is expanding constantly, and new entrepreneurs and creatives are always looking to learn more about how to make the right choices to advance their careers in music. The hip-hop industry is made up of a diverse group of individuals who collaborate in order to ensure its continued success. In addition to the musicians, there are music agents, beat producers, DJs, radio hosts, music publicists, bloggers, music PRs, and music A&Rs and executives. Aside from other music figures, songwriters are among the creatives who strive to form enduring relationships and learn as much as they can.
Ali Ciwanro, a rising songwriter, has been very active in the music industry lately. He is committed to increasing his knowledge and achieving new milestones along the way. Ali has demonstrated his work ethic in the midst of some of the most well-known stars in the mainstream music industry. The young writer has received recognition from artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, J. Cole, Ty Dolla $ign, and others in recent years. Among Ali’s greatest achievements are his work selecting the music for the hit TV show Bel-Air and his co-writing of a remake of “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes.
Ali Ciwanro recently had the chance to converse with Snoop Dogg, a legend in the hip-hop community. Snoop Dogg, also known as Snoop Lion, was a pioneer in merging gangsta rap and hip hop to produce timeless songs that are still played on radio stations all over the world. Snoop has not only achieved multiple number ones on the Billboard and Top 200 charts, but he has also expanded his business endeavors to new heights. The legendary rapper is now the owner of Death Row Records, as well as a legal cannabis business, a digital media platform known as Merry Jane, and a production company known as Snoopadelic Films.
Ali Ciwanro was able to speak with Snoop Dogg over the phone and gain new insight into the music business as well as suggestions on how to proceed in his career. According to Ali, the two spoke for about a half-hour about the music scene back then and how it differed from how it is now.
Snoop Dogg also advised Ali on how to deal with certain situations in the music industry and how to consolidate his business, according to Ali. Ali is not too proud to accept advice, and he is grateful for any information that will enable him to achieve the success he has always desired.
