Maybe you want to know how to become a famous rapper. Maybe you want to know how to manifest the life of your dreams. Or maybe you're just looking for some cool inspirational books to add to your 2018 reading list. Either way, we've got you covered. From LL Cool Jay to Big Sean, many of our favorite rappers have given us some Major Keys as to how to unlock our greatest potential .
In our latest edition of Prima Maateria Mag we listed 10 Keys to success from Charles Haanels' The Master Key Sytem. A short time later, a friend of ours put us on to rapper, Kevin Gates, who is also a fan of Haanel’s book.
In a 2014 interview with hiphopdx, Gates comments on his reading habits by saying, "I’m an avid reader. I’m re-reading The Master Key System because I was excited when I first got the book, and I ran through it fast. I’m really re-reading it, so I’m really reprocessing it right now. But it’s by an author named Charles F. Haanel." Wow! And we thought The Master Key System was a random book that not many people read anymore. So to see it mentioned by Kevin Gates had us shook! Reading about Gates' relationship to The Master Key System we couldn't help but wonder if Dj Khaled's famous saying "major key" wasn't also influenced by Haanel. This lead us on a search to find out more about raps relationship to LOA and science of mind.
Most people probably wouldn’t expect a rapper to be reading about science of mind. If anything, many people believe that rappers can contribute their success either to dumb luck or the “illuminati”. After all, rappers generally are portrayed in the media as being mindless, money hungry, babbling fools obsessed with sex, drugs, and violence. You know what they say though, all truths are half truths. Maybe the other half of the truth to rap success or success in general is the mindset.
So for those ready to feed their minds with some eye-opening and motivating texts, we've compiled a list of inspirational books read, written, or recommended by famous rappers. Check it out! (And so you can be be sure we aren't just yanking your chain with a random made up list, you can check our sources and watch some cool interviews here, here, here, and here. )
