  1. is there anything specific about putting up a beat with a license? such as paperwork or anything in writing? or i just write "lease" or "exclusive license"? thanks for the video!

  2. this was an incredible video. my question really is about copyrighting n the steps prior 2 selling. im still not sure like i know u can license 1 song or a bundle, but im still unclear if the bundle has to be distributed as a bundle after copyrighted….or can they still be individually focused

  3. This is my family Found what I'm looking Guy en Xbox Live Why I wonder Why is it in United States of Pain Pain Pain in Life is Life In Danger Sign Danger signs of the Wild Side referring to life and you would like to do what the heart of yours desires your mind is Jacoby the rightest greatest thing in life of ice in our lives but if you let negative goes in inside your mind and then you are in danger of failure sites what I mean is I would like to make a change in this world but I am a Mexican Latino I like to rap like also to my favorite rap music rapper is in Tupac and I wonder if you still up or you still 0-0 and rest in peace but I say no cuz my heart don't lie my heart tells me he's in Cuba sites well leave it to their I say thank you for reading this and I hope you have learned something from this so you could reach me at my Gmail

  4. This may seem like an amateur question but what if i put up a beat for lease while selling the mp3's on itunes, will I be in any violation because I've sold that beat on itunes and now I don't own it?

  5. Much love for the valuable knowledge. I've been making beats for 7 years now and I haven't had many sales at all. Hopefully I'll get better and more sales will come or something. I will definitely implement some of the tricks learned here.
