  1. It’s true, some hip hop beatmakers started their carrier from the internet, but I believe nothing can be compared to the physical presence in a studio. I am myself a hip hop beatmaker and as I believe I am talented enough and ready to get in a studio and work with talented rappers. But the thing is that I don’t know anybody in this field and I don’t know from where to start. And I also feel that I am a little bit lost in this huge internet web. It’s so easy if you know some people already in the business. Otherwise you have to work harder to distinguish. And that is not the job of a beatmaker who’s task is to be in a studio 24/7.

  2. ps: main flaw in his argument is that when people get free things from a large entity they feel that they’ve been gifted something by a higher life form (so to speak) but when people get the labor and creations of another human for free they view that human as not worth being paid for their services…

    all u dudes advocating “give more more more free stuff!!” REALLY need to go study the economic theory of perfect competition…

    what happens when you lower prices in a perfect competition market?? i’ll let you go look it up…

  3. this is cool but myspace was the KING of social media for helping up and coming musicians…

    everyday i find out that another currently huge act or producer was discovered through myspace.. lex luger, hit boy, flocka, grizzly bear…the list goes on and on and on–id say about 70% of newer acts in all genres made it during that slim window when myspace was poppin…

    hit boy for example wrote polow, polow checked out his page, dug his tracks, flew him out the next week and that was that…

    myspace let you get a vibe of the artist check there pics and click thier music right then and there–that is why it worked.. these new sites make visitors jump through to many hoops to hear you stuff… and the presentation is too bland and doesnt allow us to brand ourselves the way myspace did– but it is what it is..

    word is justin timberlake just bought a huge share in myspace with the aim of gearing it to the entertainment industry… so we’ll see…
