    Yeah but those guys have been working at it before they blew. I would just be getting started.. I feel like if I was good enough I could def market myself. Idk.. don't even have a rap name. I guess I could just do it for fun and see what happens. Eventually maybe ill get a mic but for now I guess ill try one of these apps on my phone.

    @Ricky i been asking for a beat my man.

    Closed my soundcloud and bandcamp pages years ago. This thread actually got me revisiting my old work and putting together a compilation of my best s--- right now. Will post in a couple days.

    Some of my friends and I used to make s-----y rap songs for class projects and stuff and would sometimes make songs when we were hanging out and drinking. I always had a fun time doing that even if we never actually released any of it. Kinda wanna try my hand at beatmaking again.

    I was going through my hard drive and stumbled upon Slaughterhouse's "Truth or Truth" track. They went personal over Rick Ross' "Tears Of Joy" beat. I think that's the best instrumental for my final rap song.

    Man oh man.

    Let's talk about music distribution @CreativeSXN

    Nowadays it's very easy to blow up off non profit music, seeing the rise of soundcloud/bandcamp artists who aren't on streaming isn't a rarity anymore, but of course it's essential if you want to break into the mainstream. How do you guys approach this? Do you exclusively release music on free streaming platforms ie. Soundcloud, Youtube, Bandcamp etc. or do you release it on Spotify/Apple Music as well?

    If so how do you go about doing this? The most common choice nowadays seems to be Distrokid and for good reason, personally it's what I went with and although I haven't gone thru the process of releasing anything with it so far, it seems unbeatable for the price.

    I have distrokid and have released one song on it. Depends on if I'm using a free beat or if I leased it where I'm gonna release the track though.

    Oh yeah ofc, so for my debut tape I'm going to release the singles thru streaming but the tape itself won't be on streaming due to some beats that are already exclusively sold (None of which are known beats). The tape is most likely just going on bandcamp/youtube/sc, I think it gives it more credibility as far as being an actual mixtape lol.

    I feel that, its definitely still viable to grow a following with free music not on streaming although its harder. The biggest issue with most people in here is quality and you seem to have that down pat
