There’s no money in Hip-Hop anyway when someone like MOP can only move 2000 copies, and that’s with a fairly solid product. The gravy train is over.

Want to bang three notes on a keyboard over 808s? Join the other 10,000 Fruity Loop users out there who ‘make beats.’

2000 copies MOP? WTF?

All the money comes from touring.

We had a great relationship online and emailing back and forth so i thought.He told me how my beats were hot and how he all but guaranteed me at leat 2 or 3 of my tracks going on it .he even said when it was gonna be released . to make a long story short i believed it like a dummy .next thing i know just stopping by the site the cd was already out ! i was like damn dog you aint hafto lie about that.he wasn’t even man enough to give me some kind of explanation (not saying he had to or i was entitled).i was dampered by that experience.I ain’t emailed nobody anything since.I know ya’ll saying move on Traxx but I really thought it was a start even though there were no credits involved :(

Get a 9 to 5 and hope that allows you to fund your music as far as buying equipment to even the make beats. Hip-hop doesn’t sell cuz there’s too many copy cats these days. Everybody has done just every damn style and trend. It’s almost play-out to call yourself a hip-hop producer.

It has nothing to do with using FL Studio. Get that out of your heads folks. Sell 1,000 beats for $50 a pop. Do the math fellas. In today’s standards, quantity defeats quality, which I know sounds like a bunch of BS. But I’ve seen cats on RocBattle put up 100 mediocre beats for $5 a piece and some how generate consistent sales with effective marketing and advertising strategies. Mainly the “go to”producers are still gettin’ an average of $500-$1,000 per beat and that’s like hard to do every day if your not a “go to” industry producer. Also keep your 9 to 5. A little bit of success doesn’t mean you should just drop your responsibilities to make beats on your mom’s computer all day.

you do music to generate money???? wtf, i don’t really know any producer who started making music because of the money!!!!! no one is like: ” yeah, i wanna be a millionaire and have thirty bitches, hmm….. let’s make music!!”
you won’t have succes that way, well you propably will but then you are just another “pop-shitty” kind of artist. forgotten after the first album.

do it with love!

But if you wan’t to make it a career, a big concern should be the money.


17th Dimension October 22, 2009 at 12:46 am

Crupone, tell that to somebody who has to feed their kids and who hustles weed, cocaine or works at wal-mart or taco bell everyday.
