What a fantastic question.

The real answer… 10 years of hustle.

Now there are people who it didn’t take 10 years for and those people were people who were in the right place at the right time and were associated with someone or someone found them.

For instance: Waka Flocka Was part of Gucci Manes team. Wakas mom was Guccis manager. That was an in for him

Lil Wayne was with Birdman since he was like 11 years old… He grew up around all of the Cash Money rappers, how could he not be a good rapper by the time he was 16? And even then his prime didn’t happen till around 24 or 25.

Future is part of Dungeon Family. He was in the studio when OutKast, Andre 3000 and Big Boi was recording when he was like 10… he didn’t blow up till he was like 27 or 28. And that was WITH connections.

Here are some of the Dungeon Family members. PICTURE

As far as rappers that were younger that blew up Logic was picked up by someone and developed

MGK was signed by Diddy in 2011 when he was 20 or 21.

Mac Miller blew up at a young age because of being in the right place at the right time, because he was basically attached to Wiz Khalifa as Wiz was becoming a super star.

Then there are rappers that took a bit longer

Look at someone like 2 Chainz who was signed to Ludacris releasing songs that were spinning all over the radio in 2008-2009 with a lil wayne feature but he didn’t blow up blow up till around 2012 and he was around 35. He is 40 now.

Eminem was like 26 or 27 when Dre Signed him.
