Bun B Gives Advice To Upcoming Rappers

    With upcoming rappers like Charles Hamilton, Asher Roth, B.o.B. and KiD CuDi, many vets of the game are giving the youngsters advice. Recently Bun B, of the legendary UGK, talked about KiD CuDi saying "I can understand a kid [KiD CuDi] like that, who came into the game — he’s from Ohio, a small-town kid like myself — and within a matter of months, he went from being a person where, you know, like, ‘That kid’s got some pretty good talent,’ to, ‘Oh, my God, this is the next thing" [watch here] Bun says "One piece of advice I would give Cudi is to make sure he gets what he
wants out of the situation, because there’s gonna be a lot of people
who make sure they get what they want out of the situation,” he
continued. “You gotta really know what it is you want before you step
in. This game has a million directions it can pull you into, so if you
come into it with no direction, then there’s no telling where you’ll
end up. So you gotta make sure you come in with some kind of plan —
just an outline, dude" [watch here]

    Recently we reported that KiD CuDi plans to quit rap, before he really has even started. Stating "the drama that comes with it is more overwhelming than the shit I was dealing wit when I was piss poor broke" Bun B says "That could be pretty overwhelming for a kid that probably just wants to make good music. People are making him into a brand instantaneously, and that’s a lot of pressure to put on an individual. So I can completely understand someone being like, ‘You know what? I thought I was just going to be able to make music. This is turning into something wholly different." [watch here]

    The UGK member says CuDi should "make sure he gets what he wants out of the situation." Bun B continued saying "This game has a million directions it can pull you into, so if you come into it with no direction, then there’s no telling where you’ll end up. So you gotta make sure you come in with some kind of plan — just an outline, dude." [watch here]
