Have you ever heard the saying a good musician borrows but a great musician steals, there is a certain aspect of the statement that brings up this ideal of individualism. I’m butchering the actual word order I know, yet to me it is describing the process of observation.
We see things that inspire us and teach us something important, I must take ownership of what transpires, the life, the art that is reflected by my inspiration. I am greatful for that influence and those individuals explaining difficult concepts to me someway.
Although, what flows out of me is only my own property, the content formed is original and new. If my thinking is only concerned about thinking freely then I should be able to manage outside resources. The energy is so raw that it requires the mind to be raw, borrowing the good, returning it of course. Greatness is yours for the taking, if utilized correctly and executed in the best time, the impact will show you how great it really was…
This post was inspired by a discussion I heard online and felt conflicted on the subject. So the artist PARTYNEXTDOOR is a very talented songwriter besides being a performing musician, he wrote songs for Rihanna and Drake. But he almost seems to be envious of these other artist’s success with his written work, almost resenting the whole situation. His original ideas for the songs might even sound better, yet how is that related to someone else using the tune and gaining success from it? Art can not boughten, even if it is sold, it still belongs to the artist.
