    You have a lot to learn.

    Now that you are signed up with BMI/ASCAP you need to register your songs. As a beat maker I have always treated all of my beats as if they were complete songs even though there are no lyrics. Once I add the songs to my BMI catalog then I submit them to music licensing services. It's very important to make sure you are consistent with the names you submit to BMI and the name of the beats you submit to be licensed. When that beat is licensed for use it gets reported to BMI and that is how your royalties get generated. If your song names or artist names don't match up then you could potentially loose out on royalties.
    Stop slingin Cds and get paid for real. License those beats.
