Selling Hip Hop Beats
A Business Unto Itself - How Do You Cut The Right Deal?


Selling Hip Hop beats is the newest form of up front purchasing of an arrangement.  In the old days, musicians would sit in a studio and get paid a single rate to knock out tracks.

For the musician it was what we call a "work for hire" deal.  For the writer it is in the hopes that it gets used and they would keep the publishing and writers.

Selling your beat today has many different faces.  There are many was to negotiate a deal for your beat payment.

In this video I talk about a few of the ways you can work out a deal when selling your beat.  But it's not the end all.  You can be real creative about selling your beats.

But many say that this is a fad and it will soon fade. I don't believe that it is.  But what is happening is that there are so many beat makers is that the market is flooded.

A direct result of that is you find that beat makers are giving away tracks just get placed for creds.  Actually, if you're a newbie I suggest trying that so you can get some legs in the biz.
