    Ascap and BMI are performance rights organizations. Basically you get paid through these companies if your beat or song gets played on television/ big film's or commercial video games


    Personally, I have an account on BMI but don't really use it. If a music supervisor wants to use one of my tracks for a big movie or something they can offer me compensation for the track upfront royalty-free. It's easier for me and the Supervisor .

    Ascap tells you exactly who they are and what they do on their website

    How have they helped? - they collect payments from companies that use my music in their film projects

    They've been scamming people since 1916 bro... That's why people in the industry are affiliated with them

    Yes, it's legit. Payment issues arise when the paperwork isn't done correctly
