    Icon1 To rappers that dont buy beats!

    I personally feel like artists that don't respect what producers do and how hard they work. You have to understand that like rapping; music production is our lives! We eat, sleep, and breath music 24/7 around the clock and yes we have the right to put a price tag on them! Artists that want to make it big and be branded need to understand that you will be charged for beats, the business world is not a free world! No producer will take a rapper serious that asks or tries to con them out of free beats, its disrespectful to them and it makes you look pretty pathetic! Just like you want to make money on your singles and albums as an artist; we should be able to put a price on our beats, it's a service and a cycle that will never end! It's business! I am a producer myself and I'm constantly dealing with artists that want nothing but free beats and it reminds me of bums on the street asking for change; even worse is that the artists don't even take themselves seriously as far as branding themselves and being a true artist. I've been told that my beats are extremely overpriced and that i should just send them free for promotional uses. I think all new artists should do their homework on what an artist really is before just waking up a rapper.

    Feel free to check out my website both artists and producers and give your feedback on my beats and prices! Trehyf Beats

    Thanks!

    All I can say is well done to sticking with $50 leases, especially when most "producers" are leasing at less than half of that.

    1 suggestion though, would be to get a .com/.net... all it costs is $9.79/year with the AUTUMNCOLORS coupon from Namecheap.

    Your beats are extremely overpriced and you should just send them to artists for free for promotional use.
    seriously if you "produce" 24/7 and you still can't make a living from it, you should get a real job

    furthermore you seem to deal with the wrong people then, if you are the big producer get over to the big artists, they will pay you 4 sure. if you aren't a good producer you should get a real job, but dont complain about something you can't change, especially with beats like these.

    Yo bro that's never gonna stop... no matter how far you get in this Business. No matter how many Producer managers, A&Rs, or Label Execs you meet. You just gotta improvise your with your tactics bruh (contests,Selling ad space from your website,promote other producer's beats or website for profit... I'm just saying it makes it a lil easier to deal with that bullshit trust I've felt that pain before paying for Advertisement, paying for the cost of studio time, mastering, VSTs (if you buy) just for some rapper who talks about all his money in his lyrics to ask for a freebie is like a slap to the face.
    Don't sweat it and I hope I gave you some sick Ideas

    theirs no way around cheap people regardless to how good of a producer you are. especially when dealing with people online or local artist. its a common thing, but those who are serious about there craft wont even disrespect a producer and will be quick to pay the price for the work

    are you talking to me? tbh i dont consider him nor 99 % of the guys here to be producers,
    you gotta differ in between "producers" and "beatmakers".

    there's a huge difference believe me.

    let's overlook the fact that his beats are bad and that he isnt a producer. if a producer does a good job and he deals with the right people, around 99% of the artists/labels will hold what is written in the contract.

    im speaking in general on a unsigned artist/producer level. i havent heard any of his beats to speak on. but if its not a free beat its a discount on the price. it might not happen often to some but it happens. and the "if you got someone else who want the beat im not go hold yo paper up"(window shoppers)
