The people that sign up for shows like “American Idol” and “The Voice” become contestants that sing. They may have a great voice, but they have not taken time to pay their dues and build themselves up for an audience that may actually buy their music. This is the reason that many of these contestants win the shows and never take off. The success that they have is too instant. It is too premature and there’s no fan base to support what they are doing. This is often the trouble that keeps people that go on shows from evolving. They become labeled as the winner of a show as opposed to serious music artists. This has plagued many winners that have never really amounted to the success that the judges said that they would have in the music business.
The music business is filled with a lot of different people that have many different personalities. It is easy to see how someone that wins a contest like the ones for reality shows can find themselves struggling to make it song. In the world of music it is all about the backstory there person has. Most of these singers that become part of the reality television get success without the struggle, and that makes them less desirable.
There are artists like this that make a quick splash, but they may not last as long as others. There are other artists that may be linked to a mainstream professional, but they may not have a desire to do music that is mainstream. This is definitely the case with Del the Funky Homosapien. He doing what is considered alternative rap on the West Coast with a small group, but he is actually the cousin of movie mogul and hip hop rapper Ice Cube.
