Here’s why you need to know about Exit 5B’s journey as a Rapper

Today, the rap industry is breaking records. Youngsters love this form of music. Rap artists talk about various societal issues, about their struggles and narrate such stories through their songs. Rap is a combination of powerful words and catchy beats that attracts the audience. What makes rap different from other genres of music is the speed. Most raps are extremely fast and it requires a huge amount of practice and talent to deliver a large number of words, keeping the beat and also making sure that all of it can be heard properly. Rappers never want their audience to miss out on any lyric, else the main essence of the song, that is, the message of their stories would not get conveyed.

As rappers, their musical journey is not as smooth as musicians of other genres. This is because not everyone widely accepts rap. Moreover, it is well known that talent is not the only factor behind success. Especially in the entertainment industry, financial support, contacts and sources have a strong effect. This is also the reason why so many who are not as good, get opportunities easily than those who work day and night to create extraordinary pieces of music.
