Kwame is a seasoned industry professional, and in the video above there were some excellent quotes from him during his exclusive music industry interview, including: “The music industry is ridiculously closed. Knowing that 90% of people trying to get into it are going to fail, knowing all of these things, now understand that’s your backpack. Now add a jetpack to that backpack. That’s what you’re going to need in order to cut through…You need to make yourself completely needed, within an industry that basically says ‘I don’t need you’.”
