Age Ain’t Nothin But a Number: 8 Musicians that Made it After 30

Age Ain’t Nothin But a Number: 8 Musicians that Made it After 30

Do the Taylor Swifts of the entertainment industry have you stressed? I don’t blame you because she made it when she was just a teenager and is worth more than most people can fathom. Luckily, there are a ton of artists out there that were a bit older when they were catapulted into stardom, giving all aspiring musicians a little hope.

Here’s a list of the top 8 musicians who made it after 30:

2 Chainz in Orange County

1. 2 Chainz

30 – Released Duffle Bag Boy with Lil Wayne when he was a part of Playaz Circle and rapping under the name Tity Boi (yes, I’m serious).  Since then, Tity Boi has become 2 Chainz and recorded with Kanye West, Drake, and more.  

Danny Brown @ YDS NXNE 2014

2. Danny Brown

30 – Released his XXX album in 2010. Since then he’s won Spin’s #1 hip hop album of the year in 2011 and earned a spot on the Billboard 200 chart with his album Old in 2013.

M.I.A

 

3. M.I.A.

30 – Released Arular in 2005. Her 2008 EP Paper Planes, got her a Grammy nomination and sold three times platinum across the US and Canada.

Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

4. Sheryl Crow

30 – Released her first official album Tuesday Night Music Club. Crow has since reached number five on the Billboard charts and won nine out of 32 Grammy awards for which she was nominated.

7. Thelonius Monk

45 – Signed with Columbia Records. Much of his acclaim has come since his death in 1982, as he posthumously received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a Pulitzer Prize.

SuBo Dreamed a Dream

8. Susan Boyle

48 – Performed “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. Boyle’s first album sold the most copies of any UK artist’s debut album. She has since released five more albums and been nominated for two Grammy’s.

It takes time to perfect your craft and take it from these artists: age is just a number. So don’t worry, you’ve got time.
