    It could be worth it if the rapper/artist has a large following. If its a no name or local cat I'd try and work out some sort of barter cause we both on the grind. If they suck, no dice. Straight up. Recently I had some young cats hit me up asking for beats in a collab type of fashion - I might have considered it if they sounded good or had a following...

    To the person who said paying for ish is dumb if you can do it yourself - Im gonna have to disagree. Although I can do a lot on my own, If someone can do a kick ass job on my artwork or whatever, and I got the extra funds I'll pay em. To me, time is money, and in order for me to focus on my strong points I understand that sometimes its important for me to delegate certain tasks.

    it's more logical to pay a singer to get on a instrumental and also sing a song you wrote
    so you can shop the song around to labels

    Why shouldn't you pay a rapper for his verse??


    You expect for the rapper to pay you for YOUR BEAT don't you???



    His product is just as valuable as yours.

    Even rappers aren't beyond paying other rappers... ghost-writers have been behind some of the biggest hits to date.

    ... Rappers also pay other rappers to be featured on "their" song.

    Your beat is nothing until it is a song... it's up to you.

    I didn't read the thread but SoundCloud has some decent rappers that are easy to work with.

    Paying a rapper to be on your beat is prostitution.
