Future and Rocko finally settle their long drawn out legal battle. If you dont know, well Future was signed to Rocko’s label A1 Recordings. Rocko sued Future for roughly $10 Million dollars claiming Future breached their contract. Future signed a deal with Rocko’s A1 Recordings in 2011, and he allegedly agreed to put out six albums with the label. According to Rocko, Epic Records signed on to distribute the albums but Future allegedly cut a side deal that allowed the rapper to see multi-million dollar advances for the project. Rocko and his legal team started the lawsuit this summer. Today we finally have some closure. It is being reported that Future was ordered to pay Rocko over $8 Million dollars.

Rocko’s legal team spoke on behalf of Rocko letting us know that he is very happy with the judgement being he came out on top.

EMAIL ADDRESSES to Send Beats To Top Independent & Major Rap/Hip Hop Artists | Get Possible Placements!

EMAIL ADDRESSES to Send Beats To Top Independent & Major Rap/Hip Hop Artists | Get Possible Placements!


“All Beat Submission Contacts Were Acquired From Official Artist Or Label Twitter or Facebook Posts”

I constantly watch Twitter and Facebook for opportunities to send beats to rappers that I think are dope or that are coming up. In doing so I have collected a large list of contacts. Here are some contacts for sending beats and I will ad more as I find them. I want you to have all of the opportunities possible in this game. Maybe they will listen maybe they won’t, but I always say you got to try. I see it as if they posted “please send beats to me here” with a email then they or an associate are most likely listening to the beats that come in. And you may be surprised how few submissions some artists get as well. Well hope this list helps you out.

OVER 70 + TIPS... I Wish I knew before I started PRODUCING.......................... @SirHeistZone4

Here’s 70 + tips

I wish I knew when I started producing:

1. Trust your taste. In other words, don’t second guess yourself. Who are you doing this for anyway?

2. Stop crapping on popular music for your ego. You can learn from anything. In fact, it’s wise to learn from music that millions listen to.

3. Using loops doesn’t make you a “fake” artist. It’s the end product that counts. Look at the gaming industry. Do you know how many of them use Unity? Or Unreal? What matters is the game. What matters is the music.

4. Same goes with samples.

5. Having a beverage while you produce will make the process much more fluid. Arguably it’s the caffeine. Arguably it’s having something to reach for in between empty moments.

6. Get a nice pair of headphones or monitors ASAP. Frequency response is important. Bass is important.

7. Mixing is not mysterious judo. Go ahead and mix. Make bad mixes. Eventually, you’ll make good mixes.

8. Mastering is not mysterious judo. Go ahead and master. Make bad masters. Eventually, you’ll make good masters.

9. Buy a quality sample pack as soon as possible. Here are some quality packs incuding a free one.

10. Let music you don’t like or understand warm up to you. Chances are you’ll dig it once it’s familiar.

11. Repetition is important and minimalism is key but don’t use these as an excuse to ignore that last 20% of polish. Give your tracks that spit shine sheen.

12. No one cares until they do. Work on your craft and put it out.

13. If there’s no market for your work they may never care. Do you care?

14. If you don’t enjoy listening to your music you’re doing something wrong (or working for hire).

15. Start building a reliable way to connect with people who want your music. Email list is a good idea.

16. Free shouldn’t literally mean free. Give it out for a purpose. Facebook likes? SoundCloud followers? Email subscribers?

17. Think about where people will listen to your music. What is the setting? This should inform your production.

18. Think about what people will listen to your music. Who are they? This should inform your production.

19. Don’t resist learning music theory. Music theory is a map. You can navigate without it but it’s handy to have.

20. Don’t compare yourself too much to professional artists. Especially not early on.

21. DO aim for the quality of these pro artists. But again, do not let them stunt you.

22. You’ll reach a point where your music is actually on par with professionals and you’ll only recognize it looking back.

23. It doesn’t matter what DAW you use.

24. The final production is what matters — not how it’s made.

25. I repeat. The final production is what matters — not how it’s made.

26. Don’t ever make excuses with regards to tools. You can make amazing music with 100% free software. Remember that $400 you spent on synths that Deadmau5 was known to use? You’ll use those for about two songs.

27. New tools do provide opportunities for new directions. Spice up your production once in a while by acquiring a new plugin, sample pack, or instrument.

28. You know that guitar you’ve played for half your life? Stop pretending you don’t want to use it and get an interface. I recommend this one.

29. Invest in a solid microphone to go with that interface. I recommend this one.

30. There are four tiers of audio equipment.

Solid enough for pro use. Consumer level pricing.
“Pro” which is marginally better than number 2.
Tier two is good enough. Ignore the rest. When you make a living off of music you can splurge.
31. Never get angry or upset at change. People who yell about the music industry crumbling or that streaming is taking over the world are exhibiting resistance. Accept the world for what it is and look for opportunities. The obstacle is the way.

32. Deadmau5 began his production journey around age 16. He exploded 14 years later. Mostly because of market conditions. Kaskade’s “active years” according to Wikipedia begin in 1989. Aim for the slow burn not overnight success.

33. Start building up a following now. Fan by fan. Never forget the power of one more fan. One more listener. One more email subscriber.

34. You don’t need a million twitter followers to be a success. All you need is one thousand true fans. This may not literally be one thousand.

35. Treat your music promotion like a boot-strapped blog. It’s surprisingly analogous.

36. Your side project of writing and your eventual day job as a game designer will provide incredible perspective on making art. This will inform your music. Vary yourself.

37. Compression is overrated.

38. EQ is overrated.

*Clarification: Compression and EQ are nothing more than hammers in your toolbox. Learn how to wield them. Use them to get the job done.

39. In fact, most technical aspects of production are overrated. Focus on the emotion and the energy. You’ll write a book about this.

40. If you’re sitting on unreleased music for two or more years consider licensing it. Sell the beats. Do something with it. Chances are you’ll just sit on them anyway.

41. Vocals are like cheat codes for engagement and interest in your track.

42. Provide value to others. In time, they’ll provide value to you.

43. The people I’ve seen have the most success do it by physically knowing and interacting the most. Playing the game online can work but it’s harder because the barrier of entry is lower — everyone is doing it, and it’s far less personal.

44. Ignore vanity metrics like “number of tracks” or “song length.” These have no bearing on the final quality of the song.

45. As Rolf Potts says in his book “Vagabonding” about world travel, “If in doubt about what to do in a place, just start walking.” Similarly, if you get stuck with a piece just start messing around. Eventually what you’re looking for will find you.

46. Break all the rules. On purpose. Make this a dedicated effort. You’ll learn why they exist and how malleable they really are.

47. Label and name your tracks and project files. It really really really helps when revisiting things. You still won’t do this even if I tell you to.

48. Never ever export a song and call it “final.” That’s a slippery slope.

49. Use [track name]_[purpose]_[date] where purpose is something like “mix” or “mastered” or “demo” or “forJuan.”

50. You appreciate production more during periods of your life when it’s your escape. I know you want to drop everything and produce but understand it will lose some allure. Opportunity cost is a fiend.

51. Your speakers can deteriorate overtime. This will cause you to remaster an album 8 times in the future. Trust your monitors yet be diligent that their time may come.

52. The real important difference between analog and digital equipment is the ability to play and touch analog. Not quality.

53. In the absence of analog equipment, get a MIDI keyboard with knobs, wheels, and faders if possible. At least knobs.

54. Your family genuinely enjoys listening to your music. Share it with them.

55. You know your friends genuinely enjoy your music if their play count is more than two.

56. If you want to make a big diversion or edit in your track do a “Save As” and name it “[track name]_[reason for edit].” Then feel free to make changes. You can always go back to the initial file.

57. Keep volume at a decent level. No reason to blow your head off.

58. Make sure you check your mixes when the track is loud and when the track is quiet.

59. When the track is quiet you should be able to hear the most important parts of your track clearly.

60. Mixing is 90% volume and 10% remembering it’s mostly volume.

61. Mastering is 90% volume and 10% fixing your mix.

62. Back up your music. Dropbox didn’t exist when you started so grab an external hard drive. Losing your work is awful.

63. Never let dollars impede your creative progress.

64. Producing on a laptop is less enjoyable than having a bigger screen. Get the iMac instead of the Macbook. Or, buy a display for your laptop. Regardless, you’ll use a 13-inch MacBook for awhile.

65. If you’ve spent more than 5 minutes adjusting a parameter you’ve lost objectivity. Set it and come back later. Preferably another day. Or after you’ve substantially disengaged from production.

66. You’re not gonna become famous by creating some crazy new synth patch. Each piece serves the whole.

67. You can’t force your voice. You’ll stumble and mimic your way to a point where your voice begins coming through. Let it. Be vulnerable. Trust your choices. Eventually it comes out.

68. There is a difference between a track you casually throw up on SoundCloud and something you’ve officially released. Put care and value into your releases. People respond to this.

69. Find someone to do visual design for you. Album covers, web design, logos, etc. — they’re all important for creating a holistic experience and meeting audience expectations. Most people don’t do this which means you should.

70. Always pay for visual art. If the person declines compensation buy them lunch. If they won’t take lunch yell at them.

71. Whenever you struggle or doubt yourself remember why you got into this in the first place. Making music is fun. If you’re struggling you’ve forgotten the fun.

72. Sometimes the fun isn’t there. Go do something else.

—– I hope y'all learned something.
If anything, you’ve learned that there’s a vast, unknown, and exciting world of music creation ahead of you. There’s tons to learn And let me tell you, it never gets old.
In the comments below, share what you wish you knew when you started producing.
Furthermore, if this kind of material excites or interests you, SHARE IT WITH YOUR PRODUCER FRIENDS !

Thanks Sincerely

Iggy Azalea has officially broken the internet with this twerk video. We all knew Iggy was thick, but damn we aint know it shake like that. Wonder if Nick Young and French Montana want that old thing back yet. Check video below and tell us what yall think

Its been so long that one may forget that Meek Mill and Drake use to be very tight! Thanks to their beef that seems so long ago. Since then Meek is back locked up and Drake may have extended his hand for peace. While performing in Australia Drake stopped his show and said Free Meek Mill in the Mic. This may seem small and minor to most, but for Hip Hop this is major. Two of the industry's biggest players may have now squashed their beef. Check the video below and tell us what you think

If you are a music producer and want to you learn the basics of how to sell beats online, here is a helpful article on getting started.

What’s covered in this article:
  • Why You Should Sell Beats Online
  • What to Do Before Selling Beats Online
  • Online Beat Selling Options
  • Beat Selling & Marketing Articles
  • Beginner Beat Selling Tips
  • Music Producer Poll Stats

Why You Should Sell Beats Online

1. Make money off your talent – If you love making music, just having a passion for it is not enough when you have to work at a job every day that you hate. Work on getting paid off your passion so someday you can leave that 9 to 5.
2. It’s never been easier to sell beats – Because of the internet, you can sell beats all over the world, 24 hours a day, and this process can be automated once you set it up to collect cash.
3 Feel good about helping people – There are people in need of quality beats, so in a way you are helping people by providing a service.  You following your dreams can help others accomplish their goals, or at the very least, make them happy.
4. Be a Business – Lastly, if you can look at your beats as a “product” and yourself as a “business”, you have an opportunity to generate some real income.
Some entrepreneurs spend months and hundreds of dollars trying to create a digital product to sell, but as a music producer, you can create a new beat in a couple of hours that you can sell that same day. You are in a great position to earn money.

Where to Get Started?

Here are a few things you should consider before putting your beats online:

1. Do You Have Quality Beats?

First, you want to make sure you are ready to sell beats. So are your beats good enough to put online to be sold?
3 Things to consider:
  1. Has a musical artist made music to your beats? If no, why? Are you sure your beats are in the right song structure that is desired by music artist?
  2. Have you received feedback on your beats? Get feedback but not just from your friends who will give you polite answers. Find honest people who will give constructive feedback so you can make better music.
  3. Are your beats properly mixed? Are your beats properly mixed so that if a music artist buys a .wav file and records to the beat it will sound great in a car stereo?
Don’t let the 3 things above stop you from getting started with selling beats online, but you should consider the points above so you have the highest chance of success. If you don’t, you may not do as well as you like at selling beats online without good feedback and music artist interaction.

2. Sample Copyright

Make sure that any samples you use are royalty free so you don’t end up with any legal issues in the future.

Online Beat Selling Options

There are tons of online options for you to use to sell beats, but which is best for you?

Options to sell beats online:
  1. Use community beat stores like MyFlashStore, SoundClick, Rocbattle, PMPWorldwide.
  2. Create your website to sell beats ( Checkout this beat selling website template. )
There are pros and cons to both of these options.
Pros and Cons of using MyFlashStore, Soundclick, Rocbattle, etc:
Beat Selling Communities Pros:
  • These sites are fast easy to set up.
  • These sites get traffic to their homepage.
  • They offer music communities to connect to.
  • Customers come to the site to buy.
Beat Selling Communities Cons:
  • It’s less professional.
  • You are limited to a 1-page website profile with links to other music producers.
  • Tons of competition. Example: Roc Battles has over 113,000 music producers for you to compete with.
  • Competitive pricing for beats. If everyone else is selling beats for cheap, you will have to lower your prices to compete. Roc battles starting price is $15.00. During promotions, beat prices can be reduced to below $13.
  • Monthly fees can get high.
  • Cluttered websites with lots of distractions.
  • You don’t get a full website.
  • Limited page customization.
Pros and Cons of Creating Your Website:
Creating a Website Pros:
  • Your site can focus on you and your music.
  • You have control over the look and appearance of your website.
  • It’s more professional. Look like a real business. Look like a serious producer.
  • You control your brand.
  • You control the users’ buying experience.
  • Have your Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube updates all in 1 place.
