8 Superstar Musicians and Their Larger Than Life Protégés (Have These Mentees’ Stolen Their Mentors’ Shine?)

  • CriticXtreme

    I would like to know when rappers and people who can’t sing are now considered Musicians? You make the truly gifted at The Jullilard School of Music, BIT, Musicians Institute, The Conservatory and other high level music training facilities want to put a bullet in the brain for this unearned “musician” distinction. These people who you identify are just extremely lucky…..

      As someone with a master’s degree in music, I have to disagree. There are plenty of musicians who haven’t studied  a lick, but are great musicians.  Their are people who have studied, but who aren’t good musicians. Maybe a rapper is more of a poet than a musician, but I would definitely say that Kanye is a musician. The medium that he uses to make music may be different, but I’ve heard from people who’ve worked with him as to how disciplined he is. Musician= one who makes music.

      GOOD music isn’t limited to vocal prowess nor educational background; but involves hard work and discipline in creating the art.
