What does it mean to lease a beat? For many artists, you’ve spent countless hours working at your lyrics, and at this point writing music comes easy. Now all you need is the right instrumentals. In the past there weren’t a lot of options when it came to finding affordable original beats, but nowadays there are lots of great options.
The best part about leasing beats online to me is to be able to target and find producers that have the specific sound you’re looking for. I’m an artist myself and I simply can’t vibe with the music if it doesn’t fit with what I’m rapping about. As an artist you need beats that are gonna make your lyrics stand out. You need instrumentals that inspire you to write and help you to progress as an artist.
I also love how easy it is to find music producers. These days you can type in things like “Beats For Sale” in Google and there are loads of quality producers to chose from. There are also places like soundclick and other artist communities where producers are active all the time. This is a great way to build relationships and connect with producers worldwide. Just like you need quality beats, they need up and coming artist. Most have websites setup and you can purchase beats online instantly on their websites. This is great because when you find some beats you like you can buy them and receive them instantly to your email. Usually without any type of waiting process.
Most producers lease their beats between $5 & $25. This means that you can put out a 10 to 12 song mixtape for a very affordable price. Not only that, you can continue to make high quality music without breaking your pockets. If your goal is to make it big one day you should be investing in yourself and your career. This is an investment that will be worth your while. These days more and more record labels are looking for artists that show they can build a following of their own. Anyone can record a song, upload it to the internet, and promote it through various means. So artists who take advantage of all the new and evolving technologies will definitely have an advantage over the competition.
Sometimes it amazes me how far we’ve come in hip-hop. I mean there are so many new mixtapes and albums coming out daily. So many new, unique sounds, and styles. So you can’t procrastinate, this is the best time ever to be chasing your dream. The music industry is wide open for any artist’ willing to put in the work and establish themselves in the game. One of the most key ingredients you’ll need is quality rap beats for your mixtapes.
