We need to implement a standard minimum. Get with Airbit and Beatstars and discuss a minimum payment where producers won’t be able to under cut each other. I’ve seen prices as low as 5-10 dollars per beat. That is ridiculous. It’s no wonder the producer is an undervalued position in this entertainment industry. We got to take care of each other. Actors and filmmakers have a union, we need one too. Today, there are hundreds and thousands of rappers out there downloading free beats left and right…other times buying beats for extremely cheap. Imagine if the film industry was like this. You spent thousands of dollars for a computer, interface, keyboard, synths, sounds, monitors, PC upgrades…hours and hours of producing, mixing, deleting, and learning…only to sell your shit for 10 dollars?!
I wish we could get all the major beat websites together, and implement something to where there is at least a minimum standard. 50 bucks is the lowest price you can sell your beats…or something along those lines. 10 bucks??? Buy 1 get 10 beats free?! Fucking ridiculous.
