It's a complete joke, and not like a Jimmy Fallon late-night halfway clean celebrity zinger joke. It's like an Aries Spears "Arnold Schwarzenegger getting head", or Louis CK style blunt defamatory joke. It's only going to become an even bigger joke in the years to come.
"Don't believe me just watch".
The way Trinidad James admitted to finding free beats for his successful tape will only push more rappers to front like they grown, independent men without $20 for a beat lease. Lebrons come out? $300 plus dropped on em. $20 for something that can help their career and put they name out there? Nah.
If you want to sell beats and make a "killing" online, remember this pecking order from left to right (highest worth to lowest):
tiny amounts of money > bros > hoes > weed > alcohol > food > paying bills > having nothing but a stussy tee and a box to live in > eating your own shit > drinking your own shit > shit itself > someone else's shit > sucking dick for weed > sucking dick for money > sucking dick to get off > buying reasonable beats online
for these wannabe rappers today. Just remember this before spending your hard earned cash on beat site fees. Build personal relationships, trust me.

And if you have actually made money/can make money online selling beats (like I have and can), more power to you. But even we who have been broken in must admit, it's a ****ing joke. LOL.
