I wanted to shed light on a huge problem that many rap artists don’t even know about.
I want to make sure you’re equipped with the right insight and knowledge to help you make the best choices when picking beats.
The BIGGEST mistake I see all the time with rappers is that they select beats that don’t have any room for them on it.
The biggest difference I hear in songs on the radio and songs from independent artists are that radio bangers are sparse. Radio bangers often leave a lot of room for the artist to spit.
Remember that your vocal is another instrument. If there are too many instruments crowding the track then you won’t be heard.
There are different schools of thought that say the human brain can’t follow more than 3 things at a time.
Your vocal needs to be one of them.
Drums Chords Your voice ( or lead when you aren’t rapping )That’s an extremely simplistic and simple formula, but when you really think about it.
In music “Less is often more”. That’s not to say there are any permanent rules but I do want you to be aware that most DOPE DOPE music leaves plenty of room to breathe for the artist.
Hope this helps! Leave a comment below with your opinion.

That was great good looks
Appreciate the insight, always appreciated.
Thanks! Keep me posted on your progress!
That is great insight and makes sense.
Great insight. It’s crazy how I learned production backwards. As a music producer and audio engineer gain staging was one of the last things I learned. I heard about headroom but not the specifics.. This is very important. Check my productiin on my playlist
Thank you fam
Thanks this is something I’ve always known and it’s nice to have reassurance!
Trying to get signed to a label shouldn’t be your goal in 2018. Labels need you . Great your own brand buzz and use sites like TuneCore.com and cd baby to get distribution . Bless up
I think that the number one problem is the mixer it is their job to fit the music and keep the vocals upfront just as on any other genre of music. The difference I’m a song that’s played on radio and those that are not is politics and knee come from someone who spent a number of years in radio and record companies. Hip-Hop is treated differently than other genre and it is killing the art form. That school that says the brain can only follow three sounds is so stupid cause check out other forms of music, Bass-, horns,keys,guitar, drums,vocals.IJS
I agree 100%
Love the info
This info helps so much. I love it ??but yall check out my soundcloud @Xterminator im a producer fwm?
this is exactly what I’ve been working on the past couple weeks since someone gave me the feedback to chill a little on the ear candy and the excitement
anyways, I still make the darkest, coldest, most godless beats out there soundcloutdotcom/fettikrueger or yungmoondotcom
This is definitely true. I was jus having this exact conversation with another producer…knowing when to stop adding stuff to your beat is critical and difficult for some ppl.
