I Don’t Want to Hear your Beats
What’s up good peoples! This is another elephant in the room topic that I want to discuss. How many of y’all actually listen to beats shared with you by other producers? Or are you thinking to yourself.. ” You again? I don’t want to hear no more of your damn beats!” well maybe not that harshly but you’re still thinking it.
Its a touchy subject but I think this type of knowledge is important to help us grow. It will make a lot of producers aware if they’re wasting their time looking for feedback or not. Now I’m a producer’s producer. Not in a sense that I’m the dopest and all producers aspire to be just like AG. But I cater to helping producers out so its a lil different for me. Sure I sell beats but I don’t actively seek out artists to do so. With that said, I try to listen to as many beats as possible when they are sent to me. But I must say, with the amount of producers I’m in contact with it does get quite challenging at times.
The majority of you producers are making beats to sell. Do you listen to other producer beats when they share them with you? I’m not talking about click play. listen for 5 seconds.. Say its dope and keep it movin’. I mean really listen all the way through and give them some good constructive feedback. See I think its levels to this shit. If you are just starting out producing then sure you should look for feedback from other producers. But once you get better your focus should be getting your beats to artists (local or independent to start). I believe a lot of us are wasting our time sending beats to other producers to listen to. I mean they are not going to be your customers anyway.
To be honest, one of my pet peeves is when I get a message (spam) from another producer saying their beats are on sale buy 4 get 1 free.. Dude I’m a producer, (If you didn’t get the hint from my handle AGGOTBEATS) I got beats, I don’t need them. So my question is.. do we encourage our peers to find some local or independent artists to send beats to and stop wasting time sending them to other producers. Or do we just let them keep getting the same feedback from the few people in their circle that will never buy a single beat from them? Please drop a comment below and until next time catch me everywhere @AGGOTBEATS
