Our goal here at Stop The Breaks is to educate and empower independent hip-hop artists grinding around the world.

As our friend, Rap Coalition founder and music industry veteran Wendy Day says about success in the rap game:

I think the most important trait is seeking out the knowledge and experience to do this properly. You either hire the right people who have the knowledge and connections to help you succeed as an artist or you learn how to do this yourself.

As an independent artist grinding by yourself, you don’t always have the time or resources to educate yourself on the music business.

In between recording, distributing and promoting your music, it’s hard finding time to sit down and learn what you need to learn to succeed in the rap business.

This is where Stop The Breaks can help you. In addition to providing effective promotional packages that help artists gain more exposure, we also offer helpful resources such as eBooks to empower their grind. 


Independent Music Grind Vol. 1 is the first of many eBooks to come, providing independent hip-hop artists with the knowledge, insights and motivation to grind their way to the top.

Featuring case studies on legendary pioneers like E-40, new generation independents like Chance The Rapper, low-key hustlers like Yo Gotti and more, Independent Music Grind Vol. 1 is a convenient read and packed full of information you need to educate and motivate yourself to success, available for only $9 USD.

Success to us, doesn’t mean you’re making millions of dollars every year or that you’ve scored multiple number one hits. Success to us means you get to do what you love doing, with complete financial and creative control over your music.

Like the legendary Tech N9ne said:

Success is being able to put your kids in the right schools and colleges from doing what you love to do, and I’m doing it. I don’t look at it as being on the Forbes list twice.
