now I love putting beats online.. it jumpstarted my career as a producer and allowed me to network with some great people. the pressure I put on myself in the battles also made me step up my game viciously. I appreciate the internet beatmaking community very much, and thats why I'm making this post.. A LOT of yall criticize tracks very seriously.. and I want to help everyone see the light.. realize that complaining over snares and drum sounds is not useful or beneficial to you, or to others.. I dont know about yall, but when I post beats online, I put them up for peoples enjoyment.. I been making beats for 4 and a half years now, I'm not really looking for criticism on my sound selection.. I'll gladly accept someone not liking a beat, but I really dont want to hear about how my instrument selection wasn't quite what you expected.. but like Dskillz said in another thread, I truly dont pay attention to that negative, uninspiring feedback, and thats been a cornerstone to making shit pop off. you gotta have confidence in yourself as a producer if you wanna get in this game man, cuz the game is not that hard.. perfect example happened last night.. I been having a good connect to lil scrappy, so I took 3 weeks and compiled 10 hot tracks for him. I collabed with my guitar player on one, pulled some old beats out the vault, and made some new heat. last night I was in a session with another artist, so when my biz partner went over there with the tracks, he also brought some other beats I had let him hold, including the 4 rock beats that I posted RIGHT HERE on rapmusic, which got DISSED by 99% of yall. i spoke with scrap on the phone, he was lovin the tracks, but they stopped they session when they heard one of those same rock beats that yall dissed.. and scrap recorded to that bitch right there in the studio.. im sitting here reviewing it now.. plus picked 3 out of the 10 for his upcoming project moral of the story?????? stop with all the stupid negativity.. what yall think is constructive criticism is really just excuses for yall to stay in the bedroom "tightening up" your beats.. fuck that.. if you're really a producer, whip your ass into shape and grind.. thats what I been trying to do, and believe me, I'm FAR from where I want to be.. but I was lucky enough to have someone tell me the same shit I'm speaking now.. this audio producers gossip forum, all this shit, is really just wastin time 95% of the time.. I've been meaning to make this thread for a while, but I never did, because I know more than likely this thread will be dissed, criticized, scrutinzed, or perhaps totally ignored.. but for the few of you guys who really want to succeed, Im letting you know that you can, but this internet beatmaking, when taken to a certain level, becomes pure negativity and harmful.. step up your game, but then be able to turn the computer off..
