Another game-changing collabo with ONE BEYOND "Cost Of Living" All the real fans will recognize the instrumental-- It was many of the 'flips' from my "Flippin March Madness" promo last March. Hopefully everybody will be feelin' the lyrics being spit to this track! I know personally that ONE BEYOND has been puttin' that work in! Thanks 1B! Enjoy...

Producers: Are you actively pitching your beats to Artists?

I just read an article about a songwriter detailing a few of the different ways he’s pitching his songs to artists in his hometown. A couple of things that stood out.

1. He had no problem spending money to get his music heard. He mentioned pitching to listings he gets through a paid tip sheet and how that works and also the fact that he’s hired a professional song pitcher to get him access he couldn’t get by himself.  Most times you hear about how you should never pay to get your music heard or pitched. I won’t tell you that there aren’t scams out there. I’ve been got and know people who have been got just like me.

My point. Spend money wisely on PROVEN opportunities. If the site or service sounds too good to be true, it probably is. ALSO, a site shouldn’t have to be over the top with 50 celebs all over the site to pull you in if they’re offering real value. Look for testimonials and verifiable credits.

2. This guy was not sitting at home writing songs and waiting for the checks to hit the box (like most part time musicians). He was actively out playing his music and had albums for sale in iTunes, Amazon, etc. Also, he had an active blog that was connecting him with other people in his songwriting community. Basically, this guy was keeping it moving. He was writing new songs and getting them out there with or without a label.

Now I don’t know if this guy has ever had a major credit of not. But he is handling his business in an inspirational way.

There are a lot of producers that make beats – and let them sit on their hard drive. Never taking their business seriously. If you are in the BUSINESS of making beats, shouldn’t you be actively pitching those beats to artists any way you can?

It’s one word people: Grind.

Vitiate collabo track "Pathological Killer" On "Premeditated Murder" Mixtape

 So this marks the second collabo between Vitiate and myself. If I may say this track fits his style more as he is looking to do more hardcore sound. I'm excited as I can't leak too much into details about our next collabo-- as I'm REALLY anticipating to hear who's guest featuring! I'm jumping ahead of myself. Anyways I hope you enjoy this track as you probably remember this instrumental from the "Flippin March Madness" promo I ran last March.  I'm really excited to see that I'm listed on someone's cover as I know I seen the other artists I've worked with were kinda either B-Sides or just Singles or whatever!

Thomas Ian Nicholas followed my ThRob UGLY Twitter

Kinda rad! If you remember him from "Rookie Of The Year" or more recently The "American Pie" Movies (the originals, not the shitty extras!)
