Latashá believes that the music industry has seen significant shifts due to the emergence of web3 technology, and she hopes that the web3 space will put real value back into music and all it brings and does for its people. She believes that this space can change the label system and move us into a creator economy.
If an aspiring hip-hop artist or musician in this space were to seek Latashá’s advice or counsel, she would tell them not to be afraid. She would encourage them to embrace everything and then create their boundaries and parameters so that all of this doesn’t overtake them and they can remain true to themselves. She would also advise them to challenge themselves in new ways and not to let their fears hold them back.
