It’s amazing that soundclick beats are still on top with rappers on-line for mixtapes. Soundlick.com has been hijacked by rap music producers a long time ago and rappers still flock to this website to buy rap beats for there mixtape or albums.
The most popular soundclick beats on the website would be that of r&b beats and dirty south beats (trap beats). These type of tracks tend to purchased a lot by music artist who aren’t looking for complete originality but more in to looking for that commercial radio ready hit.
Alot of the beats for sale here tend to radio friend music and most of the rappers that come here to buy music want to purchase beats that sound very similar to the tracks that you will hear on the radio. Rappers follow major industry artist like that of Wiz Khalifa and Drake and look for producers here on Soundclick that produce music with a similar style and sound to the major industry artist’s.
If your looking for that original sounding hip hop beats soundclick isn’t the best place for you. You might want to just google type of beats you like a find a producers official website. This is where they upload beats that aren’t as radio friendly as others. Soundclick beats are still so popular with rappers and they advertisement space has sky rocketed and impossible to get on their at the moment as all the soundclick promo songs of the day are taken.

good hard drive for mac
I recently bought a new hard drive to back up all my beats and all the drums and samples that use to make my beats on-line . I looked on-line for a good hard drive for mac and I came across he Seagate back up plus external hard drive.
This hard drive is easy of use and ties in with time machine on the mac to back up all your files. It can be a bit tricky at the start to convert it over for mac formatting so make sure to take a look at the article on my website where the relevant links are for this tutorial.
The time machine functionality might be only for those how want to back up their mac with out even thinking about it and have a constant back up every couple of days or hours.
I prefer to only back up the files that I actually need, like music and tracked out files for all the beats I have made. The Seagate back up plus also has the ability for you to protect all of your social media photos. But for some one like a photographer or some one that would create a lots of content that has a monetary value like backing up your website this hard drive is perfect for the mac.

tweet adder review
Recently I have been ask by some of my social media followers and my email subscribers what software do I use for marketing on tweet adder. I use tweet adder twitter marketing software to help me with my marketing on twitter. But recently I noticed that tweet adder rolled out a new update 4.0 that removed some of the automatic features such that of automatic following.
You still use the Twitter marketing software in a more white way now with out getting your twitter account banned. It is now more an official twitter marketing tool. I had only used the soft ware to help find targeted people to follow on twitter that was my main goal from the soft ware. I spoke on the video tutorial about try to use it to help you rather than spamming people on twitter.
The best thing about the update to tweet adder 4.0 is that it now not frowned upon and you won’t get your twitter account to banned. Tweet adder 4.0 now complies with the terms of service provided by twitter and now a legit twitter marketing tool to have in your arsenal.

sample hip hop beats article
Just looking at the statistics on my website and and many other beat websites I have seen that sample beats are still the most dominant genre with rap artist’s. Most of the artist’s that come to buy rap beats from my website tend to favour a sample beat.
More often than not rappers like to buy rap beats with hooks as they have two important area’s of the song complete with both with the rap instrumental and the chorus. This leaves them to focus on their main area of the song which is the verse.
Sample beats are the back bone of hip hop music. Hip hop was create from the blending and chopping of many genres of music such as soul , fuck , pop and rock beats piecing them altogether to make a new form of music.
There is much to debate on the topic of sample rap beats , both on the fair use of music and legality issues. But watching the video documentary on youtube “Everything Is A Remix” really opens the flood gates for discussion on the topic and opens up our minds on what we call a sample and what we call a remix. I have great article on my site all about me speaking on the popularity of sample beats on my website feel free to check it out here : -> Sample Beats

I go in to detail on the way I construct my music.
The breakdown from making the beat to the mixing the beat. I always feel that the structure in my pop instrumentals it key to making a good catchy beat that people want to hear , that it has the radio ready feel also it has that spacey for the to sing on. I never go over kill on that instruments used expect on the melodies . But these can always be removed if the artist prefers to sing the melody. I put my own melodies and counter melodies there just as an Idea or a guide for the artist to hear my vision for the beat and what I would sing If I were writing lyrics over these pop Instrumentals.
