You Dont Have to Sell Your Beats to Major Artist to Get Major Money

Do you really need to sell beats to major label artist to make some real money?

Absolutely not!!

Think about how many major label artist there are making serious money right now. Actually you can probably count them on two hands, but most of them are the usual suspects from the last 10 years or so.

Yknow, like the Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list. The top five are maybe 50 cent, Jay-Z ,Diddy, Kanye and Dre. The next top five are usual suspects too. Guys like Lil Wayne and Baby, The Neptunes, Eminem and a few new comers like Drake and Nikki Minaj. (by the way, that is a scary ass pic of her lol)

Even if you’re stupid hot at beat making and everyone who hears your beats think you should be producing for these artist and maybe you should be,.. the odds of you getting a placement with one of these superstars is slim like shady. (sorry, couldn’t resist lol)….

Which probably makes you say,

“Well how can I ever get paid off of my hot beats?”

Well there is a way, but you have to change the way you look at getting you beats to artists. First off I will say from experience, that I used to think that the only people I wanted to produce for were people like those I named above. Yknow, the major label stars.


Because that’s where the money was lol! My beginning days at beatmaking/producing happened during the era of frivolous spending buy record labels. Back when big name producers would get 250k advances with royalties on top for one track!!!

So that’s when the whole world was having dreams of Ferraris and private island ownership for what they could crank out of their MPCs and Pro Tools setups!!

But just like the other industries, the music industry fell victim to its over spending and downturn of the economy. These days, there are some still getting big bucks in the industry, but its not like it used to be!!

But now we’re back to reality. And the reality is that there are millions of people around the world who are looking for beats!! Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that they all have recording budgets the size of Rick Ross, but this where I’m talking about a change in how you look at things.

If you make beats, and you know how to use a computer, you can sell your beats on line to an audience of maybe millions of aspiring artist looking for beats. And you can sell beats online multiple times to people around the world and literally make money in your sleep this way. The possibilities are endless!

I’m never going to say that you cant make it to the major labels, but you should find a way to make some money from your beats before you get there. Who knows, you could sell a beat to an unknown artist who later gets signed to a major deal on the strength of one of you tracks! And that could be a way in for you!!

But back to the simple life, you can actually generate an income by selling beats to unknown aspiring artist. With you having the ability to promote and sell your beats around the world, the potential for you to make 5 or 6 figures a year from your beats is totally realistic! All you have to do is stay consistent and repeat your formula.

• Make hot beats.

• Post to your site.

• Promote your site.

• Sell beats to artist.

• Receive payment.

• Repeat.

There it is!! No B.S. just what you need to do to realistically make money from your beats online. It can be that simple eventually, but you do have to put in some work at first. Once you do, the formula is that easy! Who knows maybe your grind will land you amongst the majors after all.

Hustle hard and make some Kool S#$% Lol!
