i'm madly into music and a couple of years ago i started producing my own stuff as , but right now i'm having a huge bout of self-doubt and insecurity on whether this is what i really want.

basically, the reason why I started writing music in the first place is because a mate was doing it too, and I guess I wanted to prove I was equally capable.

so, how can i know if my interest in this hobby is authentic or just a byproduct of jealousy, i understand how dumb this sounds, but i need some advice.

Ask yourself, "is this what I want to be doing with my life?"

that's it. If you like it and are good at it, don't worry about "authenticity'. Your reasons for the initial interest don't really matter. Mozart only got into music because his dad thought he could make a quick buck off of a child star, but it was still his life's passion

that's the problem, sort of, i'm continuously drawn to music but my work honestly sucks and it's putting me off, i'm afraid of being the next viper the rapper, I kinda feel like I wasn't meant for music, because I have no formal musical education and mostly do things by intuition.

Well, if you're constantly working to improve and are realistic about your abilities and goals, I don't think there's much danger in pursuing it as a hobby. Viper's deal is that he's either an advanced troll or hilariously un-self-aware, something which you don't seem to be in danger of. Plus ya'll niggas ain't even smoke crack is a fuckin banger yo

Also, it's never too late to pursue education, and plenty of non-formally educated musicians made great music.

Pursue an interest because it makes you happy, and success will likely follow. And, even if it doesn't, you'll have spent your time doing something you love, which is admirable in and of itself

like coil said, persistence is all, right? i really want to make it and realistically i'll never be the next skrillex or whoever but that wasn't my goal to begin with, I was always more into oddball or slightly obscure stuff, I understand thats vain in its own regard but I always liked fucking about and experimenting except that I believe most contemporary electronic experimental artists are pretentious and unexciting snobs, I always thought experimental music should work on creating fresh new pleasing melodies and pushing the envelope in terms of how good or bad music can make us feel, not repeating the same old 8deep64u that was unimpressive half a century ago. sorry if I went on a bit of a rant, just feel the need to release all this stuff from my system.
