Those Free Beat Downloads Could Hurt You

Those free beats could be bad!
Many artists now will just download a free beat. They don’t bother leasing it or obtaining any rights.

I’m going to give you three reasons why that is a bad idea:

1.It sounds tacky when you rap over a tag.

2.Everyone is going to have the same beat. 
(Thousands of people download the same beat you're downloading)

3.You can get sued it you are using the beat for profit.

You will never get where you want to be if you have that “free” mindset.

Start investing in your career. 
The serious artist's will quickly set themselves apart from the non serious artist's. (I get it we are in a recession, but if you want it bad enough you will make a way.) I’m speaking as an artist who is also a producer.  I’m not telling you anything that I don’t do. I have to copyright beats and license them with A.S.C.A.P. myself. So I know how hard it is but I still find a way!

Your hottest songs will probably be on the beats you purchased anyway. Why’s that you may ask? Because you invested your money into a beat and you don’t want to waste your money. I know I don’t like to waste money I’m conservative.

Thanks for reading please share and check back for more. I’m doing my best to bring you advice, tips, and resources to help you become successful without a major record label.
