17 Artists Who Almost Gave Up on Their Music Careers

By  | 

Any famous musician will tell you that the path to fame is almost never an easy one. Trying to break into such a competitive industry takes hard work, sacrifice, and the ability to bounce back from rejection. But even some of the biggest names in music have proved that trying to persevere in tough times can wear people thin, regardless of how passionate they might be.

Quite a few stars have come close to quitting their dreams for good. But thankfully these singers and rappers stayed consistent and continued to grind, proving that it always pays to keep going forward. In fact, had it not been for their tenacity and grit, a lot of today's best selling hits wouldn't even exist. Isn't that insane?!
