THEY DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT US.5’000 FOR ONE NIGHT TO TALK WITH SOME SUCKERS AND SELL THEM A DREAM ‘ GIVE YOU A WRONG PHONE # OR TELL YOU YOUR SHIT SUCKS.PERSONALLY I WOULD RATHER GO TO A SEMINAR WITH A ROOM FULL OF ARTISTS THAN A ROOM FULL OF HATIN ASS PRODUCERS ‘ THERE’S ENOUGH OF THEM ON THE INTERNET.

yo believe me i did alot platnium records and none of them with the help of an a&r….i know those dudes and those people are the devil in person….trust me this is the truth

1. all a&r´s get alot of money they dont care about you

2. a&r are to 50& producers why should they help you

3. all a&r´s pushin only beats to acts from producers they family with or people they got signed to their publising companies

4. in this days rappers dont care about a&r´s anymore, save the money and get up with rappers….start with the unknown and dope rappers and than build connections….

5. a hot beat cd is a hot beat cd but a&r´s have their producers, for them its a perfect way to bite music and get new inpiration

i hate those a&r meetings….i was there in 2007 and i know alot producers and none of them had a placement after…..and those producers where hot!

I attended the A&R Power Summit a couple of years back. And I can testify that it is official. I got a placement with Jim Jones and I was able to get two songs on movie soundtracks as a result of meeting with reps from Warner Chappel and EMI Publishing.

And I know countless other producers who have benefited greatly from attending the A&R Power Summit and other seminars like the ones that Dynamic Producer presents.

Hey just like in the business world, it is who you know and not entirely what you know.

I was able to receive a $50,000 loan for my business recently from a loan officer at a bank. The bank loan was largely due to the fact that I developed a good business relationship with the loan officer.

Your Network is your Networth.

I attended a small biz seminar a year ago, which I paid $800 to attend. I met this loan officer there and built a strong business relationship with her and that led to my loan. Bottom line.

Your Network is your Networth

So you can stay in your studios and play beats for yourself. But, unless you are on your grind and networking and investing in your business, then no one will know that you exist.

And if you have your business structure set up right, then attending big seminars like the A&R Power Summit is a tax right off.

Step your game up and quit complaining.

Learn the art of business networking and understand the fact that you may sometimes have to pay an entry fee to get connected to the people you need to get connected to.

I will be at the A&R Power Summit again this year. In fact, I just signed up…

@trackmonsta

ok i got you
but you can send jim jones beats via myspace or send it duke tha god
and you dont have tp pay 280 bucks doin that

believe me i did 3 platnium records the last 2 years and all of those placements happened because i was buildin it with acts directly in the studio

ofcourse somtimes you got luck and those meeting will bring something on the table but it isnt the same than buildin it up with an artist directly

AND IF YOU ARE A HOT PRODUCER go and find a manager company and build it with them instate of sittin in a room full of other producers on a conference that also try to get placements

good luck!
