MC Lars on DIY Success & Making A Living In Music [video]

Your ultimate goal is to make a living with your music, right? Then listen to what MC Lars has to say.

via hypebot.com:

Since 2006, hip-hop artist MC Lars has been a poster boy for indie music success and the DIY work ethic. After a short-lived relationship with Terry McBride and the Canadian record label/management company Nettwerk five years ago, Lars formed his own label, Horris Records. Since then, he has taken his self-described “post-punk laptop rap” and delivered it to a target audience he calls the“iGeneration” — kids born between 1982 and 2000.

In the interview below, MC Lars reveals his approach to a DIY music career, making money as an indie musician, his advice for new artists, and much more.
