    Stop Giving Away FREE Beats...

    I know most of you have come across those artists who asks for FREE beats.

    In my opinion it's nothing wrong with giving away a few beats...

    ...however, there's artists out there who don't take what we do

    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!

    Coming from someone who always looked for free beats to rap on, I didn't appreciate what producers did one bit, let alone did I care of the work they put in. Do you know how many beats I destroyed, and not in a good way? Now that I've put the time in producing, I realize the hard work it takes. 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.

    What A Great Post.
    Thank You For Posting That. There Is So Much To Learn In Production And Engineering, But Not Only That But We Also Have To Learn The Marketing Side As Well.

    I def agree... Ive always said that dollar leases and constantly giving away beats hurt all producers.....
    -b/c people expect all of us to do the same...

    I dnt understand how after sitting in front of a screen for hours and playing a loop until your ears bleed u let somone just have it...

    A steady drip of water puts a hole n a rock .....

    Like old folks pissin i guess it all depends on

    That dude in the video is broke. No poor person can lecture me on what to do with my music.

    learning how to make beats is fun but very hard.but then again it's one of my hobbies so i dont feel the same way :/ beats are beats,drum patterns laid out on melodies.

    if you really set out for it you could just get ad revenue alongside whatever you charge for your beats, few guys do that.

    Thats whats up fam it's a good thing you feel the struggle
    because most of these rappers out here have no idea what
    producers go thru to put a beat together. All that talk about
    money but they dont wanna pay for beats? SMH

    Keep doing ya thing homie!
