Rap Hip Hop Beats – Study Your Craft And You Will Excel With Making Beats

The hip hop production world is simply crazy right now. While you may or may not know anyone in your area who has a genuine interest in making rap hip hop beats depending upon where you live; the internet is booming with budding music producers that are looking to make their mark within the industry.

With the accessibility of computers nowadays, anyone can buy some beat making software and call themselves a producer. Don't believe me, check Twitter. If you do a search for make beats, you will see many tweets from people looking for beats, selling beats, talking about beats, trying to give beats to artists, requests to listen to their beats. It's crazy to say the least.

So with all of the competition, how do you set yourself apart?

In my opinion, many of the cats that call themselves music producers or beat makers, they are so far away from being either that it ain't even funny. They have not taken the time to sit down and learn the craft of how to write songs and compose musical arrangements, yet they consider themselves to be “hot” or to be the best up and comer. They won't have any longevity or skill that will help them to last and stay relevant in this game, truth be told, making beats is somewhat a science, and you have to study it if you want to be successful at it.

Okay, you have music theory that you must learn, composition and arrangement skills to master, audio mixing and engineering to digest, and software and operating systems that you need to understand how to make function, that will allow you to express the musical ideas that are in your head. If you think that you can gain this knowledge overnight, or just by buying the latest greatest DAW that's out, you will be sadly mistaken. You gotta practice, practice, practice!

I'll bet you Stevie Wonder can make a Casio keyboard sing. I'm sure Timbaland can compose a club banger that will go platinum from a hospital bed. And I'm sure that Kanye West can take the wackest drum pattern, and turn it into another “Jesus Walks”. The two things that all of these producers have in common are talent, and music production knowledge. They have studied and mastered their crafts. And they didn't share their creations with the world until they mastered their music. It doesn't matter what you use, if you know how to make it do what it do.

So set yourself apart from the crowd by studying your craft, and using a software beat maker that will help you to make rap hip hop beats, not one that's hot because everyone else is using it. Your production career and success in the game awaits you, get on with your practicing and studies, and set yourself up to win in this game. Better Beats Ahead.
