I saw post of datpiff the other day on the top mixtapes of 2012. I felt that this would be a great food for thought with my subscribers and article readers. It’s just a great way to get people talking and I feel that many people will have great things to say about their views of the top mixtapes of 2012.

Article that I have written on questioning your mixtape promotion . You need to ask yourself what are you doing to promote you music online. I have a video of me here also speaking on the ways you need to start promoting your mixtapes online. I see numerous of people on forums complaining about not getting where they need to be. Instead they should save this energy for development of ideas and plans of how to promote your music online. Simply stating in forums that nobody is downloading your music is not going to get you any where. Ask yourself have I made videos ? Do I have blog or a website ? What connections have I made with the people who have downloaded my mixtape already? These are the questions that you need to ask yourself. Many artist tend to just jump back into recording again and never promote the first mixtape that they made. You need to build a foundation of fans in the first place. So that you have fans to keep coming back for more music every time you make new music. I strongly suggest that you read the article and watch the video here on mixtape promotion on my website it will really help start to think of ways to get fans and keep fans downloading your mixtapes.

New Post on the website of new trap instrumentals that I created. I love the sound of the sub 808 in trap beats. Even though a lot of these types of beats tend to be very repetitive I still enjoy making them. Trap Instrumentals are more popular now more than ever. The 2 new trap beats that I created are called “Greed Is Good” and “The Pusher”. Both beats are at the 140 bpm for the tempo. I make most trap instrumental beats at this tempo as it is easier for me to do those snare rolls and fast kick hits. Most of the instruments are synth based and have short repetitive melody loop and back it up with the 808 kick as the bass backing of the track . A lot of industry artists are using these type of beats in their mixtapes. People like 2 Chainz , Rick Ross and Wakka Flocka all use these type of beats . Rap artists tend to like the grove and bounce that is given from these type of beats. They tend to get a great build up of hype from these type of beats. Using busy snares and high hats create and high energy with in the beat. This gives the rapper excitement and pushes them to flow harder with the beat.
