    How Much Do BIG Producers Make Per Track???

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I was just wondering how much the mainstreem producers( kanye, neptunes, just blaze, primo, lil' jon) make per track. I've always heard different numbers but I never really knew how much they got. Especially Lil' Jon, because it seems like he does every crunk song out, but I'm thinkin he can't really get as much as say the neptunes or someone, because a lot of the people he's producing aren't backed by their labels as much as an industry artist. Let me know what's up!!!!!!!

    500K for timbo or the neptunes per track?? That's a little bit too high for a single track. They better have 3 or 4 hot cuts up in that album.
    Fruity or Triton?? If the beat is hot, who cares??

    yes per track and besides you have to look at the budgets for the album i was surprised to hear lil kim paid that much, britney spears thats understandable because pop music tends to have larger budgets therefor producers can charge more.

    "Neptunes 100 G's
    Timbo 150 G's
    DRE 90-100 G's
    Swizz beatz 80-120 depending on how hot it is is what he said"

    have to disagree with you on those tim was charging around 150k back in '99 i got the article to prove that..dre even bragged on songs bout charging 250k..it was that one song on the wash soundtrack that sounded like ah hell i forgot. swizz beatz mentioned in an xxl article i believe it was the march 2002 issue he said after getting hot he started to charge 100-120k but for that time march 2002 he was charging 250k.

    You can do it by payment up front or you can do it by royalty points. Preferably if you are working with a big artist you wanna do it that way. But alot of upcoming producers charge a Down payment and points. Only Tim Neptunes and others named get the high dps and points.

    You have to remember that these guys do a lot of boasting and truth padding as well. I still think for 500K, Tim and the Neptunes better have 4 or 5 tracks on the album and half of them better be serious heaters.
