Selling Hip Hop Beats And Rap Instrumentals Online

By Delroy Wilkins

Writing a song is not an easy process. First the lyrics, then we have melodies, the rhythms, and other elements that must be created and synced with each other to form a coherent song. If you are a hip hop artist, you would likely know that coming up with amazing beats and instrumentals takes hard work, top-of-the-line skills and some luck. But as an artist grows older and stays in the music industry longer, he or she will find that his/her musical taste is being established. Soon it’ll be easy for an artist to pick out the appropriate beats for his/her song and creating instrumentals will be a piece of cake.

There are two main ways for you to choose your own rap beats. The first method would entail you thinking about what your song will be like. Is there a concept to your song? Is there any specific topic? It would help if you looked at your song as a separate being with its own emotions. Next, try and find instrumentals that match those emotions.

The second method is for those rappers who don’t know how to sing about anything specific in their songs and sort of just let the lyrics flow. In this case, the above method won’t do you much good, but what can help is if you go through your whole collection of instrumentals. Listen to them keenly, and once you come across one you like, you will be able to tell right away.

This may sound corny, but when you listen to the instrumentals, and you already have the song forming in your mind, then subconsciously your mind will be able to tell you which instrumental is best for your song. After you have chosen the beat, it is at this point that you would want to think about the concept of your song. It does not have to be too specific, but at least let a listener identify a general theme when listening to your music.

The power of music is in the power of inspiration; sometimes you will hear a beat and instantly everything clicks right into place. Soon after you have chosen your beat, it is then that the concept of your song will surface. And while the concept may not be specific, it is important that it gives a sense of coherence to you song so that the listeners may be able to identify the theme and relate to your music. When choosing the right beats for your upcoming song, it also helps to be acquainted on the different types of beats there is. This can be hard, as distinguishing beats is no easy feat for anyone, especially to those who are still new to the music business. To make this task easier, you can try and focus on the different instruments used to create the beats. If you want your song to have more percussion, listen to beat tracks that have more percussion. If you want your song to have more synths, there are a lot of tracks that are focused on synths. So listen and listen to a lot of different music. After all, the best way to sharpen your skills is to familiarize yourself with the different kinds of music available.
