over the years i've made a whole bunch of hip hop instrumentals. i know there is a big demand for this, because there are so many aspiring rappers. I have several friends who have made money selling their beats online anywhere between 50$ to $400 a beat but they had it easy because they had a name and they were selling their name more than their beats.
has anyone ever had success coming out of nowhere and marketing their music this way? as a product rather than "art" if you will.
any tips or suggestions?
