    when y'all speak of "mysterious artists" i think of like...SAULT. not f***ing Bryson Tiller and dvsn

  • Apr 2

    a label standard procedure for signing a new artist is wiping all their old s*** off the internet to create a mysterious persona for people to speculate about

    its not rocket science yo

    I still think Roy Woods should’ve had more push/budget

    Yeah I agree. If it’s not working, then they could’ve pushed it a little more. Or maybe we don’t know a lot of things that goes on. Maybe the label has given the artists freedom to do whatever they want.

    It seems now everyone tries too hard to be mysterious, and it actually hurts their career Instead helping it . Any examples ?

    I feel Dvsn, Raury, Bryson etc

    Edit: It worked well for don toliver , Travis marketed him really well for years .

    It seems Playboi Carti/ Abel is the only person this actually worked for

    You kinda have to be lowkey and mysterious if your music is mostly about s**

    yeah hes finally doing a rollout after being a ghost for 3+ years

    Carti’s entire hype is built off leaks and his team knows this lol, he didn’t have to drop music because his team leaks his music on purpose to make up for it

  • sabadabadoo

    Carti was sooooooo mysterious

    He’s a really talented dude. Idk who messed it up but he could’ve been up there with Brent, Bryson, PND etc.

    I have nothing against OVO Sound. The label wants everything to move up organically. That’s why most of the label’s artists haven’t blown up, but they have aged well. Very slow but has solid quality. It’s like a high end leather or wine.

    They aren't ever blowing up lol

    They aren't really trying either, except DVSN they went with that toxic s*** and flopped still

    Their music is timeless tho, public sleeps

    You’ve been on ktt long enough that I think you should know that term only got popular because Dj khaled was trying to roast Tyler the creator.

    He made the worst music out of the OG members

    dvsn, Party, and Majid Jordan clear immensely

    Honestly, when you have the biggest artist on the planet under that label, I don’t know if they have the time to concentrate on the rest.

    Drake was never part of OVO Sound as an artist

    His music was all thru Republic and YMCMB before his new contract after Scorpion

    The Weeknd was mysterious (nobody knew his face for years)

    24hrs was mysterious (until people figured out he was Royce Rizzy)

    RMR was mysterious (until people stopped caring)

    there was never anything mysterious about Carti, and going a few years without any official releases doesn’t make someone mysterious either, it just means he wasn’t clearing anything. Frank isn’t mysterious for not dropping music. Kendrick wasn’t mysterious before MM+TBS. what is this thread lol

    i feel like dvsn tried pretty hard to not be mysterious with the last album rollout

    i also think a lot of artists arent intentionally trying to be mysterious but rather are going thru it behind the scenes and thus disappearing for a while / struggling to put in the necessary work to take the next steps in their career for whatever reason / stuck in a bad deal. but for a lot of fans it looks like theyre intentionally trying to ghost or create an aesthetic
