The answer is definitely a yes, for the majority of musicians out there. But again, it depends on what you do, and also might be a little overkill (but if you're OK with spending that much, maybe that isn't a concern).
Thank u ! I feel much safer. at least the CPU choice isnít wrong.
Reason why I wanna get a high-end Hackintosh is becuz Iím a lazy guy lol,
I wish I can have a long-lasting computer, at least wonít have to get another
new computer in short term just becuz itís not powerful enough anymore.

Yeah I can smell it, just like upgrading my outboard gears, it never ends.

At least you have an SSD drive, so not necessary to upgrade there, but if you had the money, you could consider an nVME SSD to complement that drive... that would be where I'd install the important stuff that needs quick access (OS, for starters, DAW, some VSTs depending on space available). This upgrade is already getting pricey as is though, so you may want to hold off on that. That's always something you can do down the road too, and this wouldn't be the top priority. One more thing, I believe this doesn't come with it's own cooler, so there's another thing to buy. Not sure what pairs best with that CPU though, as I've never had to research that.
After research
I chose

Motherboard : Z390
Radeon RX 570 8G VRAM
Cooler : Noctua NH-D15
Case : Fracal Design Define R5

Did some research on the cooler, seeemed 9900ks Ďs temperature is freaking hot.
And I heard rumors saying tat watercooling system has chance to leak?
(never had a watercooling experience anyway..)Canít let that I skipped that option.
Seems Noctua isnít a bad choice least the reviews on internet arenít bad .

No no not at all, as I said, Iím really appreciate yo info!
