    I give some away to build the brand. Seems like every rapper is poor on soundcloud.. what a shock.

    SERIOUS.

    This video is an example of those artists so I encourage you to watch this
    to know what to look out for because...

    ...as producers we take this music shit serious and we don't need people
    taking what we do for granted!

    Hope y'all enjoy!

    I'm an advocate for free beats, but I could relate to what he's saying... Free beats is great when used strategically with marketing.

    You can't really escape it though, people will always ''steal'' your music.

    I posted a beat on soundcloud, did a search on it via google a few days later and it was already being streamed on sites I've never heard of, obviously ripped from soundcloud.

    You can put tags all over your music, sure, but they can be really annoying and may detract someone critically listening to the beat closely.

    Huge respect from Finland! Nothing but the utmost respect for someone who values their time the way that you do (and that others should).

From studying Sound Design, to learning to play the Piano/Keyboard, to learning basic Music Theory, learning your DAW inside-out, to studying the basics of Audio Engineering, to watching countless videos to learn new techniques and then applying them, to learning your Plugins and Synths inside-out. There's no way I'm giving beats away for free, a good majority of us dedicate too much time for some lame rapper to talk about his manufactured struggle, all the females he claims he's hittin', or how he's killing the rap game in his bedroom.

    Let these rappers/artists put their money where their mouth is, producers shouldn't be doing $20 leases either, unless it's some basic project/session that you know is gonna sit in a folder.

    I know he touches on this but don't underestimate the power and metaphorical value of the free beat..if you're starting out and need to create a buzz around your brand there is no better way.

    I totally understand the frustration coming from producers
    (I'm part of an underground Rap duo based in the UK)
    I sit there and watch some producers putting the time and effort in to creating beats just to be flocked by a bunch of artists asking for free beats.

    My only thing is, it seems nowadays some of you producers just wanna sell your beats, accumulate cash and not really care about who vocals them (That's how it comes off anyway)

    It kinda looks like - with the way some producers go RAGE mode - you make beats with the intention JUST to sell (lol guys don't flame, it's just an observation..I'm an Emcee, not a producer, I welcome a challenge) Remember I said some...not ALL.
